Gulfstream Park President Bill Murphy abruptly resigned Saturday, according to a company press release that offered no further details. He left his position immediately, Gulfstream’s parent company, Magna Entertainment Corp., said. Murphy joined the Hallandale Beach horse track and casino in June 2006 and was promoted to president and general manager in January 2007. Gulfstream is slated to open Gulfstream Village, a shopping center, in February 2010. The $1.2 billion mall will have restaurants, nightclubs and stores, including a Crate and Barrel and a Pottery Barn. [Sun Sentinel]
