Gulfstream Park has started construction of a $4 million structure with 380 new stalls on the south side of the track's property.

The structure measures 600 feet long by 84 feet wide and is 156 mph hurricane resistant. The wood stalls with sliding door will be located just west of the one mile chute.

"The Stronach Group continues to invest in Gulfstream Park and Florida Thoroughbred racing ," said Gulfstream Park President Tim Ritvo. "It's very important to Mr. (Frank) Stronach that we continue improving Gulfstream's backstretch and its infrastructure. Earlier this year we invested $1 million in a new drainage system, and our dormitories at Gulfstream and Palm Meadows provide the finest private amenities for backstretch workers."

The dormitories at Gulfstream and Palm Meadows have been praised by leading horsemen throughout the country.

The first stalls are expected to be completed by the end of October.
