Gulfstream Park: A little Super Bowl PR piggy-back

From's special travel section:

For entertainment, it's tough to beat a beautiful afternoon at the races, and nearby Gulfstream Park (901 S. Federal Highway, Hallandale, Web site) is open and ready to take your hard-earned gambling cash.

Gulfstream is offering four stakes on Feb. 3, including the Grade I $500,000 Donn Handicap, plus the Swale and Holy Bull Stakes — each of which are stepping stones toward the Kentucky Derby.

So come to the track and say you saw the Derby winner way back in February.
Unfortunately, I won't be down in South Beach for the "Super Big Game", the Donn, the Swale or the Holy Bull. I will however be making my maiden voyage to the gem of MEC's track empire sometime (and more than likely multiple times) between Feb. 14th-18th.

Stakes races for Saturday the 17th are the Grade III Hurricane Bertie (for Fillies And Mares Four Year Olds and Upward going Six And One Half Furlongs) and the Grade III Sabin (for Fillies And Mares Four Year Olds and Upward going One Mile)
