HALLANDALE BEACH (CBSMiami/AP) – After receiving regulatory approval on an agreement to end competition with Calder Race Course, Gulfstream Park is set to expand its racing meet.
Hallandale Beach’s Gulfstream Park is expected hold racing from December to September of each year, at least 190 days.
Calder will be open for racing for 40 days in October in November, and Gulfstream will operate that meet under a six-year lease arrangement.
Simulcasting will no longer be offered at Calder under terms of the deal, which takes effect immediately.
Calder said the agreement is in the best interest of South Florida racing. Gulfstream, owned by the Stronach Group, went head to head in the summer with Calder for the first time last year and did much better business.
