The Gulfstream Park Tapeta Track
WHAT IS TAPETA?
Tapeta is a Thoroughbred Racing and Training surface comprised of a carefully selected mixture of the finest silica sand, wax and fibres that have been extensively researched and simulate the root structure of turf. Tapeta has been tried and tested in all climates at Training and Racetracks around the world. Tapeta handles wet weather and heavy rainfall extremely well.
Tapeta has been extensively praised by Racehorse Trainers and Racetrack Owners in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. The consistency, safety and simplicity of Tapeta place it at the top of the world’s rankings and many of the world’s best Thoroughbred’s train and race on Tapeta.
Tapeta removes the possibility of a post-position draw bias, so often associated with turf racing. Furthermore, by providing a fairer surface for the equine athlete, closer finishes are more likely than on dirt racing.
