Wow, maybe 10 years ago I said on the forum that they should have done this at Aqueduct - replace the inner dirt with synthetic which would be better for the winter.  I never would have suggested it for a track that lacks snow and spring thaw issues.

I thought that the idea of adding a tapeta tack at Gulfstream was specifically for races taken off the turf due to rain, the idea being that turf form might better replicate itself on tapeta than on dirt, especially sloppy dirt.
