Gulfstream Park's request to have racing on Mondays and Tuesdays for 12 weeks this spring is being studied by two Florida regulatory agencies.
And with clocks ticking, the Hallandale Beach, Fla., track is facing the prospect of a rejection or of a lengthy review that could make its request moot.
Gulfstream will end its 2012-13 meet April 5. On March 1 it asked the Florida Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering for permission to have racing each Mondays and Tuesdays from April 8 through June 25 this year.
During March the Florida DPMW reviewed Gulfstream's request and the objections that were filed by Calder Casino & Race Course—which is locked in a racing dates dispute with Gulfstream—and by two other pari-mutuel facilities in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area.
