Royal Palm & Sunshine Meet Highlights | Apr 4 - Nov 24

OffTrackBetting.com (OTB) is happy to announce that active members will once again be able to bet horse racing from Gulfstream Park. Gulfstream's Royal Palm Meet is scheduled to open April 4 and run through September 1, leading into the Sunshine Meet schedule to open September 6 and run through November 24.

Led by the Princess Rooney (G3), a pair of qualifiers for 2-year-olds to Royal Ascot, and the first two legs of the lucrative Florida Sire Stakes, Gulfstream Park will offer 40 stakes worth $4.245 million in purses during the upcoming Royal Palm and Sunshine meets.

The seven-furlong Princess Rooney, a 'Win and In' qualifier for the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint (G1) in November at Del Mar, headlines the Sept. 21 Sunshine Meet program which includes the $100,000 Ginger Punch Handicap for fillies and mares 3 and up going 1 1/16 miles on the grass; $95,000 Bob Umphrey Turf Sprint at five furlongs for 3-year-olds and up; and $95,000 Aventura for 2-year-olds at one mile.

The Royal Palm's May 11 program will feature the second running of the $120,000 Royal Palm Juvenile and $120,000 Royal Palm Juvenile Fillies, each sprinting five furlongs on the grass. Once again, each race will provide the winner with an automatic berth in one of six juvenile races during the prestigious Royal Ascot meet in England as well as a $25,000 equine travel stipend.
