In 1939 a race meet lasting four days was held at Gulf- stream Park in early February. Five years later James Donn Sr. reopened Gulfstream for a 20-day meet. Since those early days Gulfstream has grown and expanded into a racing, entertainment, and casino venue. In 2017 Gulfstream hosted the first running of the $12 million Grade 1 Pegasus World Cup Invitational Stakes, the world’s richest horse race. Juddmonte Farms’ Arrogate took the $7 million victor’s prize.
