Gulfstream Racing; 1:05 PM Post Wednesday

When Gulfstream Park resumes racing on Wednesday, it will have eight races with a first post of 1:05 p.m.

Gulfstream will have a new pool on its Rainbow 6. The 20 cents per combination-only bet will be on  races three to eight with the sequence scheduled to start at 2:09 p.m. Gulfstream has guaranteed a minimum $50,000 gross pool today if a single winner nails the Rainbow 6 wager.

The Wednesday card will follow the Fountain of Youth weekend when Gulfstream had combined Saturday and Sunday handle of $49.1 million.

Our database, based on Equibase charts going back to August, 2015 shows that was the largest  two-day handle at Gulfstream with the exception of Pegasus and Florida Derby weekends. 

On Sunday, its most recent race day, Gulfstream had a well-publicized mandatory payout of the Rainbow 6 jackpot – regardless of the number of winning horse wagers.
Our records show that 725 winners collected $4,240 each Sunday on the Rainbow 6 wager.

Total track handle was $16.4 million, of which $3.5 million was wagered on the Rainbow 6.
