Gulfstream To Disperse Rainbow 6 Carryover April 23

04/13/2011

 HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Gulfstream Park announced today any carryover of the 10-cent Rainbow 6 will be dispersed on Saturday April 23 to assure bettors across the country an opportunity to participate in the mandatory payout of the popular and historic wager

The current carryover of the Rainbow 6 is $1.17 million. Gulfstream’s final day of live racing will be April 24.

Timothy Ritvo, Gulfstream’s Vice President of Racing, said the decision to disperse the carryover on April 23 was made because Gulfstream’s final day of racing Sunday, April 24, falls on Easter, a day when all New York betting outlets and Kentucky tracks are closed.

“We want to give all our bettors that have supported Gulfstream racing and the Rainbow 6 throughout the meet the opportunity to take part in any carryover dispersal,” Ritvo said. “We believe the best way to give everyone an equal opportunity to play the Rainbow 6 and be part of the final carryover is to disperse the money on Saturday, April 23. We will also conduct the same bet on Sunday, April 24 and disperse that pool as well.

“This decision continues our efforts to always think of our customers, both locally and globally, and to do what’s best for the great sport of racing. We would also like to thank all of our customers for their continued support of our racing product. We look forward to the remaining two weeks of our 2011 meet as well as the return of live racing December 3.”
