Gulfstream Park has an 11-race card Sunday, with first post at 12:10 pm. There are no stakes races planned on the day. Sunday’s racing will feature the mandatory payout of the Rainbow 6 wagering, with the current carryover at $1.369 million after Saturday’s multiple winners earned $31,053 each. The Rainbow 6 (Pick-6) will commence in race 6 at approximately 2:40 pm. Gulfsteam is estimating a $6 million pool on that wager Sunday. It drew $706,082 Saturday.

The high-odds race 12 saw Dorth Vader win at 46:1 paying $95.00 on the WIN. That made for big late Pick 4 and Pick 5 payouts; $1,982 and $12,105 respectively.
