One week after establishing an all-time record for total handle of $40.2 million, Gulfstream Park's 12-race Holy Bull program Saturday handled $19.775 million.

It was a record handle on Holy Bull Day, topping the previous mark of $17 million last year.

Saturday's Holy Bull program included five stakes races including the $350,000 Lambholm South Holy Bull (G2), won by Irish War Cry. Eclipse champion Classic Empire finished third in his 3-year-old debut.

“We're extremely grateful to our fans and horsemen from throughout North America for making this a memorable day of racing,” said P.J. Campo, Vice President of Racing for The Stronach Group and General Manager of Gulfstream Park. “The past three weekends at Gulfstream have been extraordinary, from the Sunshine Millions and Eclipse Awards to the Pegasus World Cup Invitational to the Lambholm South Holy Bull. We've had great racing and tremendous performances from our stars on the track. We're looking forward to the rest of the Championship Meet.”
