HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Claudia Spadaro, one of 1/ST’s and Gulfstream Park’s hosts and analysts on its daily, fully-integrated Hipica TV Spanish broadcast, noticed a lot of questions from new racing fans over the past few weeks.

So she decided to start Horse Racing 101.

“Every day we have new people starting to watch the races and I started to get a lot of questions on my social media about the basics of horse racing and all the different ways to bet a race,” Spadaro said. “So I thought we needed a tool to teach these new fans how amazing our sport is so they can become experts and discover how wonderful horse racing is.”

In the first installment of Horse Racing 101, Spadaro simplifies the classification of races, from maiden events to claiming races, allowance races and stakes races.
