With the hurricane's path looking like it will make landfall right on top of Miami, and the size of it enough to damage most of south Florida, I'm hoping the horsemen and their charges will evacuate. There is no way any of those facilities can withstand a Category 5 impact.BaroqueAgain1 wrote:Gulfstream is cancelling racing Thursday through Sunday, because Hurricane.

“Horsemen are being given the option to keep their horses at Gulfstream, Gulfstream Park West or move to our training facility at Palm Meadows in Palm Beach."
So...which facility has the highest elevation and the sturdiest stables?
Florida has in fact suspended the interstate movement requirements for livestock to encourage speedy evacuation.

Hopefully there are facilities in neighboring states willing/able to take this many horses.
