Gulfstream Scraps Dec 31 Quarter Horse Race

Gulfstream Park on the night of Dec. 30 canceled a Quarter Horse race that it had scheduled for Dec. 31.

The Florida HBPA  asked Gulfstream to not hold the New Year’s Eve Quarter Horse race because its contract with Gulfstream does not permit that track to hold any races other than for Thoroughbreds through Dec. 31, 2012. The now-cancelled race was not sanctioned by the Florida Quarter Horse Racing Association nor by any affiliate of the American Quarter Horse Racing Association.
