Gulfstream to Host Canter for the Cause


Gulfstream Park | Leslie Martin

Gulfstream Park will offer owners and fans the chance to walk trot or canter their horses across the track when it hosts its second Canter for the Cause Mar. 15. All participants will have a chance to have their pictures taken in the winner's circle by Gulfstream Park. Registration is $50 and all proceeds from the event will go to Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that inspects and awards grants to approved aftercare organizations to retrain, retire, and rehome Thoroughbreds using industry-wide funding.

“This was such a well-received event last year for all the participants and volunteers that we wanted to hold it again within state and local health protocols, as well as our own,” said Mike Lakow, Vice President of Racing at Gulfstream. “Canter for the Cause is a great way to raise awareness for Thoroughbred aftercare. We know this year's event will be a memorable one.”

Registration closes Mar. 8 at 5 p.m.  To register, visit
