The featured track this week in the free-to-enter weekly contest series that runs each Saturday through Kentucky Derby Day is Gulfstream Park. Weekly and overall prizes are awarded throughout the 16-week event.
Gulfstream Park has 12 races in all. This week there are no Kentucky Derby prep races but to keep the contest going we selected a track that will have a good mix of turf, dirt and all-weather surface racing including a pair of stakes.
