Gulfstream Has Two Distaff Stakes on Saturday

The feature race at Gulfstream Park today is the $100,000 Musical Romance Stakes, at seven furlongs on dirt for fillies and mares 3-years-old and up and restricted to Florida-breds.

It is the second race in a new stakes series that Gulfstream  is sponsoring and funding along with the Florida Horsemen’s Benevolent  & Protective Association.

Gulfstream has an 11-race Saturday  card with first  post  at 1:15 p.m.  Conditions are listed as  fast and firm.  The Weather Channel forecast is for just a five percent chance of rain during  racing hours.

The Musical Romance  is  the ninth race  with scheduled post of 5:34 p.m.

It is part of the ten-race FHBPA/Gulfstream Park Summer Stakes Series.

All of the races have $100,000 purses.  Six are restricted to Florida-breds.  Four are Florida-preferred. Those races are open to horses from all states, with bonuses beyond the purse money for Florida-breds that finish in the  top  three.
In an upcoming article we will have  more  details  on the Florida HBPA/Gulfstream program.
