HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Gulfstream Park Racing & Casino announced Wednesday a $250,000 guarantee on its 50-cent Pick 5 this Saturday and Sunday during Florida Derby Weekend.

Florida Derby Weekend includes Ladies Day on Saturday April 2, which includes the $300,000 Gulfstream Park Oaks and a ‘Pink Party’ Friday night after the races, and the Sunday April 3 $1 million Florida Derby.

The Pick 5 has proven to be one of Gulfstream’s most popular new wagers this winter along with the Rainbow 6, a 10-cent Pick 6 that currently has a carryover of more than $650,000.

Gulfstream also announced its continued effort to provide exceptional customer service by adding 1,000 free bleachers seats for both Saturday and Sunday and has increased the number of tellers and self-service machines.

Gulfstream will have 124 tellers each day for Florida Derby Weekend. In addition, Gulfstream will have 90 more self-service machines than last year on Florida Derby day.

“The biggest issues last year during Florida Derby was the lack of seating and tellers,” said Tim Ritvo, Vice President of Racing. “One of our priorities this season has been to improve customer relations. We believe the additional seating, tellers and self service machines will help lead to an exceptional weekend and experience for all our fans.
