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.
