Construction of 500 Stalls Approved

HALLANDALE BEACH, FL - Gulfstream Park has released the first condition book for its historic summer race meet that is set to begin Monday, July 1.

The book, which runs through July 28, also includes the races for June 25, which will serve as the 91st and final day of Gulfstream's 2012-2013 season.

The condition book for Gulfstream's summer season includes the July 4 program, which will be highlighted by the $100,000 Armed Forces for Florida-bred 3-year-olds and up at 1 1/16 miles on the turf. Thereafter, racing will be conducted every Saturday and Sunday.

"We're excited and looking forward to this new era in Florida racing," said Gulfstream President Tim Ritvo. "Not only have we invested more than $1 million into our main track and turf course these past two months, but our chairman, Mr. Frank Stronach, has approved the construction of 500 new stalls at Gulfstream. We are committed to Thoroughbred racing. We are also excited about continuing to grow our relationship with horsemen throughout North America and we look forward to welcoming our great race fans and new guests to our world-class facility this summer."
