Stauffer out as Gulfstream caller


Vic Stauffer, the race-caller at Gulfstream Park since 2000, has been notified by track management that his services have not been retained for the 2007 meet.

Stauffer, 47, currently is working at Hollywood Park, where he has called races since 2002. He also has called races within the last year at the Sonoma County Fair in northern California and has served as a part-time analyst for Television Games Network. He has been calling races since 1985.

Stauffer said he was notified by a Gulfstream official by e-mail last week that he is not being rehired. Phone calls to Gulfstream officials on Tuesday were not returned.

Gulfstream, a Magna Entertainment Corp. track located in Hallandale Beach, Fla., will run from Jan. 3 through April 22.
