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.

Gulfstream made that decision following a lengthy meeting with officials of the Florida Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association, which had vehemently opposed the Hallandale Beach, Fla., track’s plan to hold what by most reports would have been the first Quarter Horse race in the track’s 72-year history,

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.
