“Horsemen are being given the option to keep their horses at Gulfstream, Gulfstream Park West or move to our training facility at Palm Meadows in Palm Beach."

:shock: So...which facility has the highest elevation and the sturdiest stables?


With the hurricane's path looking like it will make landfall right on top of Miami, and the size of it enough to damage most of south Florida, I'm hoping the horsemen and their charges will evacuate. There is no way any of those facilities can withstand a Category 5 impact.

Florida has in fact suspended the interstate movement requirements for livestock to encourage speedy evacuation.

Hopefully there are facilities in neighboring states willing/able to take this many horses.

I've seen quite a few posts circulating on FB for basically every major showgrounds/arena/facility in GA, at least, opening as many stalls as they can. Oof. Wild stuff.
Not a wholesome trottin' race, no, but a race where they sit down right on the horse!

Has not been reported on Equibase- but according to their website- Turfway Park has called off the card for tonight due to the low temps. If its anything like it is here- good call

Penn has also called the card off for tonight

Looks like a rough go for all the northern tracks right through the middle of next week, at least.

Better this weather ANY DAY over summer weather with 100% humidity.

Just saw that Hawthorne has scrapped the Dec 30th card- says "weather"- because of "Freezing-the-hiney-off" syndrome.
