HALLANDALE BEACH, FL– Chef Ralph Paganowants to spend a day at the races and a night on the town with you!
Chef Pagano, Gulfstream’s executive chef who also happens to be a lifelong horse player and the popular television star of Iron Chef America, Hell’s Kitchen and Pressure Cook, will play host to one lucky couple in January by spending a day at the races with them at Gulfstream Park before taking them out on the town after the last race.
When Zero Rate Policy goes to post in Sunday’s $60,000 Sunshine State Stakes at Gulfstream Park, the 3-year-old gelding will have a lot going for him in the seven-furlong event for Florida-bred horses.
“He’s feeling good; his coat looks great; he’s happy; he loves this track,” said trainer Terri Pompay, listing the positives in the son of Trippi’s preparation for the Sunshine State. “I expect he’ll put in a really good effort.”
Gulfstream Park Racing & Casino begins its historic 2011-2012 race meet Saturday, December 3 with the finest racing in the country highlighted by Hall of Fame trainers and jockeys, the top Triple Crown contenders, the best older horses, and numerous improvements to enhance the fans’ experience.
John Kimmel isn’t about to underestimate the competition in Saturday’s $100,000 Spectacular Bid Stakes at Gulfstream Park, but the veteran trainer’s primary concern will be focused on the sky.
With partly cloudy skies and only a slight chance of showers forecast for the opening day of Gulfstream’s 2011-2012 meeting, it looks like Kimmel will be able to relax and concentrate on Vexor’s task at hand in the six-furlong stakes for 2-year-olds.
Gulfstream Park television analysts Ron Nicoletti and Jessica Pacheco will host a live chat at www.GulfstreamPark.com Friday night to discuss the upcoming 87-day meet, which begins Saturday, Dec. 3 with a first race post of 12:35 p.m.
Gulfstream Park Racing & Casino will be home to quite a few new features throughout its 2011-12 meet, including a Dec. 3 return of live racing, a 12:35 pm first race post time, and a new infield video board.
One thing remaining the same, however, is the overwhelming talent that will call the Gulfstream Park jockey’s room home during the upcoming season.
