Gulfstream's preliminary filing for racing dates shows it plans to have racing every week, in some cases just on Saturdays and Sundays, with a total of 153 race days during the 12 months beginning July 1.
As part of Florida's system under which horse tracks pick their own racing dates, Gulfstream submitted its filing Dec. 31 to the Florida Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering. Gulfstream's filing listed 35 of the same Saturday and Sunday weekends Calder Casino & Race Course listed in the preliminary filing it submitted Dec. 31.
That potential overlap will be an early major issue in an anticipated battle between the two tracks, which are located eight miles apart, over racing dates in southeast Florida. They have until Feb. 28 to resolve their differences.
