Nearly $22 Million Wagered On Record Holy Bull Day At Gulfstream

Saturday’s 12-race program at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla., featuring an impressive performance by the 3-year-old colt Greatest Honour, produced a record Holy Bull Day handle.

Total handle on the afternoon was $21.870 million, eclipsing the previous record of $19.775 set in 2017 and surpassing last year’s total handle by 20 percent.

The afternoon of races included five graded-stakes worth $600,000 in purses. The afternoon was highlighted by Courtlandt Farms’ Greatest Honour’s 5 ¾-length victory in the $200,000 Holy Bull (G3), a major prep for the Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth (G2) Feb. 27 and Curlin Florida Derby presented by Hill ‘n’ Dale Farms at Xalapa (G1) March 27.

“It was a wonderful day of racing, and we want to thank the fans and the horsemen for supporting our program,” said Aidan Butler, Chief Operating Officer of 1/ST Racing. “Congratulations to Greatest Honour and all of those who participated in making this a memorable afternoon. We look forward to more great racing in the weeks to come during our Championship Meet.”
