Gulfstream To Introduce Tropical Turf Pick Three During Championship Meet

Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla.

Gulfstream Park will add the Tropical Turf Pick Three to the wagering menu when its highly anticipated Championship Meet begins Friday, Dec. 1.

The $3 minimum wager will be available on the last three turf races every Saturday and Sunday on Gulfstream's new turf course during the Championship Meet and will have a low 15 percent takeout. If races are taken off the turf, they will be run on Gulfstream's Tapeta track.

The first Tropical Turf Pick Three, scheduled Dec. 2, will be a trio of allowance optional claiming events run consecutively in Races 6-8. Race 6 for 3-year-olds and up is scheduled to be contested at five furlongs, Race 7 for fillies and mares at 1 1/16-miles, and Race 8 for 3-year-olds and up at a mile.

Gulfstream's first Saturday of the Championship Meet will also include the $600,000 finals of the FTBOA Florida Sire Stakes.

The Championship Meet will be highlighted by Pegasus Word Cup Day Jan. 27 – featuring seven graded stakes totaling $5.2 million including the $3-million Pegasus World Cup Invitational (G1) – and the $1-million Curlin Florida Derby (G1) presented by Hill 'n' Dale Farms at Xalapa March 30.
