Gulfstream Park plans an 11 race program Sunday.
First post time is 12:00 PM.
No stakes races are planned on the Sunday card.
Gulfstream announced they are forcing the Rainbow 6 payout today. The mandatory payout means the full carryover of $727,306 and the wagering for Sunday will be paid out regardless of the number of winning wagers.
This is in the recent norm to force the payout when the carryover approached $1 million.
Yesterday on Pegasus World Cup Invitational Day, $1.18 million was bet on the Rainbow 6, but the payout was a measly $77.68 for a 6 of 6 winner. Why? Five of six of those races were won by the odds-on favorite! Just the Fred W. Hooper Stakes in race 10 winner was the outlier when Speaker’s Corner beat Fearless by 1-1/4 lengths.
Our quick math shows about 8,500 tickets won the Rainbow Saturday.
The Pegasus Day wagering All-Sources handle at Gulfsteam totalled $43.88 million. That was a gain of $3.1 million over last year’s Pegasus Day, about an 8% increase.
