The popularity of new multi-race bets and the advantages that come
from warm and dry weather have put Gulfstream Park on track for a third
straight annual increase in all-sources handle and for double-digit
growth in live handle.
Gulfstream’s daily average all-sources handle was $7.5 million
through March 23, the 58th day of its 2011 meet, according to officials
of the Hallandale Beach, Fla., track. For last year’s full 79-day meet
all-sources handle averaged $6.9 million, they said.
Daily average on-track handle was $618,000 through March 23. That handle averaged $529,000 for all of last year.
