HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Gulfstream Park announced Friday that it will increase all overnight purses 10 percent effective Wednesday, March 3.
Mike Lakow, Gulfstream’s Vice President of Racing, said the increase is due to the quality of the live program throughout the Championship Meet.
“We are pleased to be in a position to raise purses for horsemen who have been so supportive during this racing season,” he added.
Gulfstream enters the ninth weekend of its Championship Meet with nine stakes (eight graded) Saturday highlighted by the $300,000 Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth (G2), $200,000 Davona Dale (G2), and $200,000 WinStar Gulfstream Park Mile (G2). The three races will be three of the five graded stakes making up the Rainbow 6. The Late Pick 4 Saturday will include all graded stakes.
