Hallandale Beach, FL ( - The $500,000 Donn Handicap and $300,000 Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap will be moved back a day to Sunday, Feb. 9 to begin The Jockey Club Tour on Fox Television.

"While we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, we believe this partnership with The Jockey Club and Fox Television gives thoroughbred racing, Florida racing, horsemen and Gulfstream Park added exposure," said Gulfstream Park President Tim Ritvo. "Kicking off The Jockey Club Tour on Fox with two Grade I races that historically attract the finest thoroughbreds in training is something we're proud of sharing with those throughout the world."

Both races are conducted at 1 1/8 miles. Last year's Donn Handicap was won by Graydar over Bourbon Courage and Take Charge Indy.

Point of Entry defeated 2011 Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom in the Turf Handicap prior to the runner-up's victory in the Dubai World Cup.
