Gulfstream Park plans 10 races today, as it opens its weekly race schedule through Sunday.
There are no stakes races today.
It’s race day 28 of the Championship Meet that began December 3rd.
The Rainbow 6 enters today with a carryover of $37,258, being run on races 5-10 with the sequence starting at approximately 2:31 PM.
The last race day, Sunday, there were 33 tickets with all winners of the Rainbow-6, each collecting $2,651.28 on the 20 cent bet. The highest odds winner was 17:1 in race 5. Four favorites won the Rainbow 6 races, while two races were taken off the turf that day.
Last weekend’s race cards were interesting in that the Jackpot was hit on Friday with a $1.2 million payout. Then Saturday was a mandatory payout day; where 10 winners pocketed $100,823 each. It’s quite rare for a jackpot hit just before a mandatory payout day; but it does happen. The Rainbow 6 “cycle” thus started anew Sunday with the $37,258 carryover coming into today.
Our guess is that Gulfstream will await the Pegasus Cup weekend; Jan.29-30 for the next mandatory payout day.
Lastly, the Super Hi 5 wager has a carryover of $4,984 today; to be run in the first race with 7 or more starters.
