Gulfstream Park History

Since 1939, Gulfstream Park has been one of the most important venues for horse racing in the country, opening on Wednesday February 1, 1939. In 1952 the clubhouse was erected and a new addition was put on the grandstand. 1952 also marked the first running of the Florida Derby. The following year, the Florida Derby became the first stakes in Florida with a $100,000 purse.

In 1959, a new era at Gulfstream began with the opening of its world-acclaimed turf course. It also marked the construction of what was then the world's largest tote board.
