Gulfstream “Fountain Day” Handle of $20.6 Million is Near Record

By Jim Freer

Gulfstream Park had all-sources handle of $20,583,598 on its 12-race Fountain of Youth card on Saturday, for its second-best handle on a non-Florida Derby Day since it  opened its new facility in 2006.

Gulfstream had $20,748,939 in all-sources handle for 12 races Feb. 22, 2014--also a Fountain of Youth day.

Gulfstream’s all-time record for all-sources handle was $26,820,951 for 14 races set March 29, 2014--last year’s Florida Derby day.

The numbers are from Equibase charts.  Breakdowns for live handle  and for components of simulcast and other off-site handles are  not readily available.

Later today, we will have a more detailed analysis of Saturday’s handle and of recent wagering  trends at Gulfstream.
