 Hallandale  Beach, FL  (Sports Network)  -  Opening day  of Gulfstream  Park's
 2012/13 racing season on Saturday, Dec. 1 will feature improvements to enhance
 the customers' racing enjoyment.
 
 "Gulfstream  Park and  The Stronach  Group are  committed to  finding ways  to
 upgrade our state-of-the-art facility and making customer service a priority,"
 said Gulfstream President Tim Ritvo.
 
 Among  the improvements at the South Florida track are a new 25-table Fountain
 Club restaurant overlooking the walking ring and 32 box suites overlooking the
 finish line.
 
 "Our  customers  wanted a unique dining  experience near our walking ring that
 overlooks  the fountain  and the horses," Ritvo noted. "The Fountain Club will
 provide  such  a location. Meanwhile  the 32 boxes  facing the track will each
 have  six seats and  will give our guests another unique location to spend the
 afternoon watching the races."
 
 Not  to be left out, on Gulfstream's backstretch roofs have been replaced on a
 dozen barns.
 
 "Along  with constantly updating our main building, it's important we continue
 updating  our  barn area," Ritvo  added. "Horsemen both locally and nationally
 have  been  enthusiastic  supporters  and partners  of  Gulfstream  Park.  Our
 relationship  with the  horsemen is very important and one we want to continue
 growing."
 
 The  90-day  winter meet begins  Dec. 1 and runs  through Friday, April 5. The
 track  will  offer 61 stakes worth  better than $10 million highlighted by the
 $1  million  Florida Derby  which  will  be conducted  for  the  62nd time  on
 Saturday, March  30.
