“Gulfstream Park management expects all horses stabled at Gulfstream Park and Palm Meadows to prioritize and support the Gulfstream Park racing program. If there is an instance where a trainer and/or owner feels that Tampa Bay Downs is the only option for a particular horse, we request that you contact either Mike Costanzo or Mike Lakow prior to entering your horse at Tampa Bay Downs to explain why shipping is necessary. On many occasions, the race you are looking for may be written as an extra on an upcoming overnight.”
Trainers are also advised, “Prior to returning from Tampa Bay Downs, each trainer must inform Ed Coletti at Gulfstream Park or Mike Petro at Palm Meadows the approximate arrival time so that the stable gates are properly prepared.”
