Gulfstream Gets Welcome Purse Boost
Monday, May 25, 2020
HALLANDALE BEACH - Gulfstream Park announced Sunday that overnight purses will be raised 10-15 percent beginning in June.
“We were very conservative with our purse structure beginning in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Gulfstream’s Vice President of Racing Mike Lakow. “Without our casino operating and with no on-track attendance and handle we had to make adjustments with the purse account. The horsemen have been incredibly understanding and have worked with us throughout this process. We want to thank them for their support and we’re pleased to provide this increase.”
The holiday weekend of racing continues today with a 12-race program beginning at 12:45 p.m. and a guarantee of $1.2 million in the 20-cent Pick 6. Sunday's winners each received $19,092.
