Gulfstream Park and Fasig-Tipton announced today that a $1 million bonus will be paid to the owner of the 2016 Florida Derby winner if that horse is a graduate of the 2015 Fasig-Tipton Florida Two-Year-Olds in Training Sale to be conducted at Gulfstream Park on Wednesday, March 4.
“This bonus is a unique way to celebrate Gulfstream Park’s partnership with Fasig-Tipton,” said The Stronach Group’s COO and Gulfstream President Tim Ritvo. “Gulfstream is known for its world-class racing and by the many classic and Grade I champions produced by the Florida Derby, and Fasig-Tipton’s March sale is the premier 2-year-old sale. We think this initiative will also be fun for fans as they follow the horses through the sales ring and throughout their racing careers.”
Fasig-Tipton president Boyd Browning added, “This bonus should create even more interest in the sale and the 2016 Triple Crown trail. It is another wonderful reason to buy a horse on March 4 at Gulfstream Park.”
In order to be eligible for the $1 million bonus, the horse must be offered for sale on March 4, 2015. Horses withdrawn or scratched from the sale will not be eligible for the bonus. In the unlikely event of a dead heat between multiple sale graduates, the bonus will be divided equally between the owners of the eligible horses.
The Fasig-Tipton Florida Two-Year-Olds in Training Sale under tack show will be Monday, March 2. The sale will be Wednesday, March 4 in the walking ring beginning at 4 p.m. For more information go to:
