From the Gulfstream Park Media Team:
Gulfstream Park will be the first racetrack in Florida to move to medication-free racing. The medication-free format for stakes races will apply to the $3 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational (G1) and the $1 million Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational (G1) set to take place on January 23 as well as to the beloved Florida Derby (G1) and Fountain of Youth (G2), held annually at Gulfstream Park.
In 2020, the administration of race day Lasix was also banned for two-year-old horses entered at any of 1/ST RACING’s racetracks, including at California’s Santa Anita Park and Golden Gate Fields and at Laurel Park and Pimlico Race Course in Maryland.
1/ST has been at the forefront of industry-leading efforts to prioritize the health and safety of horses and riders and is committed to the care of Thoroughbreds before, during and after their racing careers.
