Presidents Day Racing
Mondays are usually dark at Gulfstream.
But this Monday, Feb. 20, it will have a special Presidents Day card with twelve races and first post of 12:00 p.m.
All twelve races are starter stakes, with purses of either $60,000 or $50,000 and restricted to horses that have raced at least once at or below designated claiming levels in 2016 or in 2017.
All of the races are named in honor of U.S. presidents, U.S. first ladies or the British royal family.
