Gulfstream Park will offer off-season simulcasts from Calder Race Course and other racetracks beginning Sept. 22, track officials said.
On Sept. 6, the Florida Supreme Court declared unconstitutional a law that kept Gulfstream and Calder from offering full-card simulcasts during each other’s live racing seasons. The two tracks also couldn’t offer harness racing or jai alai simulcasts.
In early 2006, Calder was open for a brief period to accept wagers on Gulfstream races, and the experiment was a deemed a success. The state, however, balked and ended the simulcasts.
Simulcast programs will be sold in Silks Simulcast Center on the first floor as well as Sport of Kings Poker & Racing Lounge on the second floor at Gulfstream. Daily Racing Form will be sold in Silks.
Wagering will be conducted at Silks, Sport of Kings, and the Ten Palms restaurant, adjacent to Sport of Kings, on the second floor. The venues open at 11:30 a.m. Eastern time.
About 20 signals will be offered Sept. 22 in the afternoon and evening.
