Gulfstream Park Championship Meets Opens Saturday

November 29, 2017

The Claiming Crown leads things off on Saturday, opening day of the Gulfstream Park Championship meet. They will also feature the second running of The Pegasus, expected to draw horse of the year shoe in Gun Runner.

Another highlight of the meet are the three year olds on the Derby Trail which will climax in The Florida Derby.

There will be no shortage of action at Gulfstream Park, especially on their multiple stakes laden Saturdays which usually draw some big fields, and some good grass racing. We also have the Rainbow 6 to watch and go after when those carryovers build up. Lost in the excitement and anticipation of the carryovers are the generous payouts almost daily on a 20 cent wager.

Mainstays Todd Pletcher, Chad Brown, Dale Romans, Kieran McLaughlin, Shug McGaughey and many others will be there and loaded no doubt. It’s a beautiful facility, fantastic weather and beaches, with great racing, where else would you want to be this winter?
