Gulfstream Park has added another lucrative race to its Pegasus World Cup card and increased the purses of its Road to the Triple Crown series, the track announced Friday while releasing the stakes schedule for its 2021-2022 championship meet, scheduled for Dec. 3 through Apr. 3. The $3-million GI Pegasus World Cup Invitational and $1-million GI Pegasus World Cup Invitational Turf will be joined on Jan. 29 by the $500,000 GIII Pegasus Filly & Mare Turf, a 1 1/16-mile event that will replace the GIII Marshua's River. The 70th running of the GI Curlin Florida Derby, slated for Apr. 2, will carry a $1-million purse–up $250,000 from last year. In total, 76 stakes (37 graded) will carry purses of $14.260 million. No stakes have been scheduled for the newly installed Tapeta course, but turf races that come off the grass will be conducted over that all-weather surface.
