The Florida track will end the year – and start the new one – with several stakes.
Today’s card at Gulfstream has three, all on the turf. None are graded.
Two are 5 furlongs, Abundantia (for filles and mares) and Janus. The Via Borghese is 1 3/8ths miles for fillies and mares.
The action on New Year’s Day includes six stakes. For the fillies and mares, it’s the Cash Run (1 mile), Ginger Brew (1 mile turf) and Glitter Woman (6 furlongs).
The Mucho Macho Man (1 mile), Limehouse (6 furlongs) and Dania Beach (1 mile turf) will complete the lineup.
