Gulfstream Ready for Saturday’s Star-Filled Summit of Speed
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL - The late racing secretary Bobby Umphrey was once asked what his reaction was in the late 1990s when Calder management told him they wanted to run an afternoon of sprint stakes in the middle of the summer worth more than $1 million.
"I thought they had three heads," he responded with a wry smile.
Sixteen years later, that afternoon of sprint stakes called the Summit of Speed has become one of Florida's biggest days of summer racing. After being cancelled by Calder management in 2014, Gulfstream has spent the past two years resurrecting the event into a premier day of racing, one that takes place Saturday, July 2 at Gulfstream Park.
