Gulfstream Considers Later Post on Fridays

Gulfstream Park is considering a 3 p.m. first post time for the last six Fridays of its 2011 racing season, according to the track’s president and general manager.

 
The Hallandale Beach, Fla., track will  hold its meet from Jan. 5 to April 24, with regular first post of 12:55 p.m. The later first posts would be on Fridays after the start of daylight savings time, from March 18 to April 22.

 
Gulfstream could start some races as late as 6:55 p.m. on those Fridays, Steve Calabro, Gulfstream's president and general manager, said Dec. 21. A Florida law prohibits Thoroughbred tracks to have races after 7 p.m. Gulfstream is hoping that the Florida legislature will change that law during its 2011 session that will run from March 8 to May 7.

 
Those “twilight racing” cards and possible expansion of Gulfstream racing dates are among issues that Gulfstream expects to bring up early in 2011 when it resumes contract talks with the Florida Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association, said  Calabro and Tim Ritvo, vice president of East Coast racing operations for Gulfstream’s parent MI Developments.
