Florida is not short on visitor attractions. The US state contains some of the most popular leisure parks and natural attractions in the world and has long standing traditions in catering for huge visitor numbers.
For horseracing fans one particular attraction stands above all others and that is Gulfstream Park, a well loved venue in the world of horseracing since 1939.

Gulfstream Park Racing, inside rail Gulfstream Park racing is held from January to April and while it is an important venue in American racing is just a part of an extensive leisure complex with boundless appeal for visitors all year round.

A central leisure feature is the recent addition of a casino to Gulfstream Park. The concept of a combined racing track and casino, or 'racino' is a recent one and they have proven very successful when implemented.

Not only does the casino part increase the leisure experience with further options for betting but also increases the revenue which can be used to increase the purse for the races, thereby increasing their status and attracting the best horses and riders.

A popular live music venue too, the complex is an all encompassing attraction in the style for which Florida is so renowned but it is the Gulfstream Park racing which remains the main attraction. In common with most American racecourses, there are both dirt and turf tracks at the course. The outer oval is the dirt track which is 1 1/8 miles in circumference within which is located the one mile turf track.

Both are well utilised and the main events in the Gulfstream Park racing calendar include a series of Grade I races such as the Florida Derby, the Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap, and the Donn Handicap. Further Grade II and III races offer plenty of choice for race fans.

There are extensive dining options open to racing and casino visitors. These range from Deuces Cafe to Ten Palms Restaurant, a stunning 1000 seater trackside dining facility notable for its delicious daytime buffets and night time a la carte specialities. Christine Lee's, a famous name on Miami Beach, offers its signature steak, Asian and sushi specials until midnight and is located on the third floor of the complex. For extended dining until 1am there is the Finish Line Deli which is found on the first floor.
