Gulfstream Adds NFL Sunday Ticket
By Sheldon Glass
Just when you thought things couldn’t get any better at Gulfstream Park, they have.
Besides the great horse racing, dining and shopping, Gulfstream starting this season is showing the NFL Sunday Ticket in the “Sport of Kings” room on the second floor.
Now, you can watch every NFL game on big-screen HD TVs and also see and bet all the great thoroughbred and harness racing all day and night in one place.
The Sport of Kings has approximately 30 TVs, and is a sports bar within the track. The most prominent TVs are tuned to the races at Gulfstream and Belmont Park and to games with the greatest interest among fans. The room has several dozen tables, where you handicap while watching the games. Admission is FREE. There is a bar, and food is available from the Ten Palms restaurant next door.
Adding the Sunday Ticket is an example of how Gulfstream always listens to its fans and is willing to make changes. I know. I was among those who asked about the Sunday Ticket.
After the live racing, you can take part in the greatest buffet in all of South Florida at Ten Palms on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Thursday is Italian night at $19.99. Friday is seafood, $24.99. And Saturday, get this, ALL you can EAT Prime Rib, $19.99.
Show your “Good Luck” or “GP Advantage” card for two dollars off any day at Ten Palms.
Or, you can dine or shop in the adjacent Village at Gulfstream Park outdoor mall. All of this shows how chairman Frank Stronach, president Tim Ritvo and their team are turning Gulfstream into a destination center–with year-round racing as the core.
Here’s looking forward to seeing everyone at the “Sport of Kings” room on any given Sunday.
