Weekend Carryover Pools
There was a mandatory payout of the Rainbow Pick 6 last Sunday, so that pool has reset. That pool and one other are on the rise as of this writing and bear watching as we head to the weekend.
$68,408 Gulfstream Park Pick 6 Jackpot
$28,278 Tampa Bay Pick 6 Jackpot
Please note that both tracks will be running on Friday. If the pool is hit by a lone user, then that bettor will have had a fantastic day with quite the haul. When the pool is hit by multiple tickets, a portion is paid out to winners while the remainder is put back into the kitty.
You can check out the status of current carryover pools by clicking here. Looking ahead to Sunday, the same five tracks outlined here have cards scheduled. For the early part of next week, Fonner Park and Will Rogers will be back in action. Best of luck and enjoy the races!
