Tampa Bay Downs and Gulfstream Park will both be dark this Monday through Wednesday, and both will resume live racing on Thursday Dec. 26.
Tampa Bay was scheduled to have live racing this past Sunday Dec. 22. On Saturday night, it announced it was cancelling that race card due to expected inclement weather.
Both tracks will have live racing this Thursday through Sunday.
First post times Thursday will be 12:35 p.m. for ten races at Gulfstream and 12:45 p.m. for nine races at Tampa Bay.
On Thursday, both will be open regular hours for their other gaming – simulcasts and poker at both tracks and also for the casino at Gulfstream.
On Wednesday Dec. 25, Christmas Day, Gulfstream will be open only for poker and its casino while Tampa Bay will be closed entirely.
Tampa Bay has asked the Florida Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering for permission to have racing on Thursday Jan. 23 to replace the rained out Dec. 22 card.
