Rainbow 6 Jackpot Nears $6 Million

As Gulfstream Park gears up for another weekend of racing, the Rainbow 6 Jackpot sits at a staggering $5,819,444.00. The jackpot only increased by $191,172 last week, which easily can be attributed to the extra attention Churchill Downs received.

 

None of the race cards saw any huge longshots reach the winner’s circle last weekend, but Friday was sprinkled with some mid-priced horses, causing a nice payoff easily outperforming the win pariay. After looking at the past performances for this weekend, it appears that the Rainbow 6 will stay intact for another week and fly over the $6 million mark.

 

Today’s card is filled with claiming races which many look to be won by one of the top three betting choices. Only 2 races in the sequence drew fields with 11 horses, all others had fewer entries. Saturday’s sequence is highlighted by the Honey Ryder and Big Drama Stakes, where the former is the only race on the card that drew a full field of 12. On Sunday, the races that make up the Rainbow 6 sequence only drew 44 entries total (7.33 horses per race).


The lack of entries is worrisome considering Gulfstream Park races just 3 days a week. These smallish fields lead bigger players to the reality of there not being a chance for a unique ticket winning the jackpot. Field sizes should rise in the coming weeks with the end of the Tampa Bay Downs meet on May 4th. Bettors can take solace in the fact that the Rainbow 6 has offered value by beating the win parlay 7 of the last 9 race days.

Oh, I'll be out to play as well. With my one man syndicate. haha
coyne, I think $20,000,000 is a conservative number! A carryover pool of $7 - 8 million is unheard of and all the big players will come out, all horizontal players will make big plays. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity! We already have our syndicate ready.
Two years ago they had a 1.7 million carryover into closing day. The pool was slightly over triple, goes with what Tom was saying.... But tripling a 7 or 8 million dollar carryover might be less likely than 1.7
Last week was a little slow, but usually 200-300K gets added per week, so if the jackpot carries over to closing day, it should be over $8 million.
Arazi,in Cali if there is a 1Million Dollar Carryover they usually multiply it times 3 . Andy is correct,should it hit the final day and the Big Boys are now satisfied that the 1 winner prerequisite is off of the table. 20 Million might be a conservative number.
It could be a $20,000,000 pool. You want to be part of the win ticket even if it's all chalk!
Will it get to $7-million? Then what do they bet into that closing day? Another $3 million??? What does a $10m pool pay if it's chalk, LOL?
Can't wait for the mandatory payout day!
