New campaign filings with the State of Florida show a local “horse supplier” placed a big bet on Hallandale Beach Mayor Keith London. Eduardo Cartaya, an owner of thoroughbred horses, made a $20,000 contribution to the 27th State political committee. Last week, REDBROWARD reported the political is operated by London.

According to State records, London’s committee is funded by Hallandale Beach developers and entities tied to the Gulfstream Racetrack and Casino. Horserace betting websites indicate Cartaya’s horses race at Gulfstream Park.

Why are gambling interests betting big on Mayor Keith London? Hallandale Beach voters deserve answers, right?
