HRFLA Staff Report

After being dark this Monday through Thursday,   Gulfstream Park will resume live racing on Friday with nine races and first post at 2:00 p.m.

Gulfstream, in Hallandale Beach, Fla,, also will have live racing this Saturday and Sunday. Those three-day race weeks will be the standard for the remainder of Gulfstream’s spring/summer meet, which is scheduled to end on Sept. 26.

There are no stakes races on the Friday card.

The Rainbow 6 on Friday has a carryover of $342,424. The carryover has grown because Gulfstream has gone nine straight race days without the jackpot payout requirement of just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.

The jackpot consists of the entire carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s new Rainbow 6 bets.

Om days when there is not a single-ticket winner, Gulfstream takes out 20 percent of the day’s Rainbow 6 bet. It then divides 56 percent among multiple tickets with the most winners (usually six) and adds 24 percent to the carryover.

On Sunday, Gulfstream’s most recent  race day, $203,831 was bet on the Rainbow 6. There were 22 tickets with all  six winners, Each won $5,238 on a  20-cent bet.
