Gulfstream to Race Monday, Presidents Day

Gulfstream Park will have live  racing this Monday Feb. 18  with its  annual  Presidents Day card.

Gulfstream will have  twelve Monday   races with first post of  12:00 p.m.

Ten of the races are starter stakes, all with $60,000 purses. All of the stakes  races are  restricted to  horses  that at least  once in their  career  have raced at or below a designated claiming price. 

All of  the stakes races have names that are nicknames of or are otherwise  connected to U.S.  presidents and  first ladies or to British  royalty.

For example the  tenth and feature race  is the Old Hickory.  That was the nickname of Andrew Jackson, who was elected  president in 1828  and in 1836.
