The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


Hallandale Beach, FL–There never will be a greater opportunity for The Stronach Group and casino dole haters to throw some snark Gulfstream Park’s way. Why? Because the Hallandale-based racetrack recently received nine first-place titles, awarded by—wait for it—Strictly Slots Magazine.

Thinking of it as a Racino Eclipse of the Year might help soften the blow a bit.

On a serious note (OK, semi-serious note), the accolades are noteworthy given the amount of competition for the gambling entertainment dollar in the state of Florida.

Can anyone else picture Belinda Stronach doing cartwheels? See how easy this is? The snark just writes itself.

The Strictly Slots Magazine awards might not be the equivalent of Santa Anita Park holding into the 2019 Breeders’ Cup, but any good news at this point in time is welcome.

Actually, it’s not really a bad thing to be recognized for having the Best Entertainment, Best Video Poker, Best Promotions, Best Hosts, Best Live Racing, Best Grandstand, Best VIP Area, Best View and Best Special Events.

There was no category for Best Limited Seating, but at least Best Live Racing made the list–even if the only competition for Gulfstream Park in South Florida comes from Gulfstream Park West, nee Calder.  

So come on, join in on the fun! There’s plenty of snark left for everyone.
