Gulfstream has offered to pick up the stall rent for any horse that runs at GP in December, so there's a little bit of relief. This after saying they had no intention of paying these guys to run at their track.
"Ritvo said that Calder horsemen should not expect Gulfstream Park to foot the bill for stall rent to be paid to Calder, which is owned by Churchill Downs Inc.
“When Calder trainers ship to Tampa to run, they don’t expect Tampa to pay them for those starters,” said Ritvo. “So why should it be any different when they race here.”
"There are no strings attached," said Gulfstream president Tim Ritvo. "We simply want to help the horsemen and work with them through a very difficult time. We understand how much they contribute to our program and also how much some of them are struggling through Calder's unprecedented decision."
Gosh I wonder if perhaps chairman Frank had a word with President Tim?
