Gulfstream Park will add the Tropical Turf Pick 3 to its wagering menu when its championship meet begins Friday, Dec. 1.
The $3 minimum wager will be available on the last three turf races every Saturday and Sunday on Gulfstream’s new turf course during the championship meet and will have a 15 percent takeout. If races are taken off the turf, they will be run on Gulfstream’s Tapeta track.
The first Tropical Turf Pick Three, scheduled Dec. 2, will be a trio of allowance optional claiming events run consecutively in races 6-8. Race 6 for 3-year-olds and up is scheduled to be contested at five furlongs, race 7 is for fillies and mares at 1 1/16 miles, and race 8 is for 3-year-olds and up at a mile.
Gulfstream’s first Saturday of the championship meet also will include the $600,000 finals of the FTBOA Florida Sire Stakes.
Friday’s Rainbow 6 gross jackpot pool guaranteed at $75,000
Gulfstream's 20-cent Rainbow 6 gross jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $75,000 Friday.
The multi-race wager went unsolved Sunday for the fourth racing program after a jackpot hit for $136,285.46.
The Rainbow 6 jackpot is paid out when there is a single unique ticket sold with all six winners. On days when there is no unique ticket, 70 percent of that day’s pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners, while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.
