Gulfstream wants in on Rubio's gambling suit



Gulfstream Park wants to join House Speaker Marco Rubio's lawsuit against Gov. Charlie Crist over the Seminole gambling compact.

The Hallandale pari-mutuel filed a motion with the Florida Supreme Court this morning, asserting the agreement would jeopardize hundreds of jobs and tax income to the state. The compact "usurps legislative power to determine what is illegal in the State of Florida to the economic detriment of Gulfstream."

UPDATE! The Court ruled that Gulfstream is in.
