Calder Casino & Race Course presents the 20th renewal of the Festival of the Sun in 2011.  One of Calder’s signature events, the Festival of the Sun presents five stakes races worth a total $850,000, including the rich finals of the Florida Stallion Stakes: the $300,000-est. In Reality Division and the $300,000-est. My Dear Girl Division.  The Florida Stallion Stakes program, now in its 30th year, was created to promote Florida-bred Thoroughbreds and the $5 billion industry that supports them.  The day also features the $100,000 Spend A Buck Handicap (G3), $75,000 Tropical Park Derby, and $75,000 Frances A. Genter Stakes.

 

Join us as Jacks or Better Farm’s homebred 2-year-old colt Fort Loudon aims to become just the eighth horse in history to sweep the open division of the Florida Stallion Stakes.  Trained by Stanley Gold, Fort Loudon won the first two divisions of the series and is expected to run in the $300,000-est.
