About Gulfstream Park
Gulfstream Park is the first lifestyle center in North America built in conjunction with a Thoroughbred racing facility. Boutique shops, cafes and restaurants embrace visitors in a lavish Mediterranean experience of striking architecture and gardens, all while being seemlessly connected to high energy casino entertainment, a high-stakes poker room and world-class Thoroughbred racing.
Gulfstream Park first opened on February 1, 1939, attracting a crowd of 18,000. Over the next 75 years, Gulfstream Park’s reputation within the national racing scene continued to grow, allowing the venue to become one of the most important facilities for Thoroughbred horse racing in North America. In the early 1950’s the Florida Derby was inaugurated. Gulfstream Park has since hosted three Breeders’ Cups and entered a new era, opening the casino and expanding the property to include shopping, entertainment, dining and nightlife venues in The Village at Gulfstream Park.
