Gulfstream Park 3 racing surfaces now?

I knew about the tapeta racing surface coming but it didn’t replace the dirt course ? So they now have dirt , turf and tapeta race courses ? Where did they find the room for this ? I would love to see an aerial shot of how this looks. According to Andy Beyer Gulfstream is the most challenging track to handicap ....now add the tapeta and it makes things even harder.

Gulfstream essentially had an inner and outer turf course due to its overall width and availability of rail placements though not designated as such the way Saratoga, Belmont and Woodbine are with more "defined" inner/outer courses.

They replaced the outer half of the turf course with Tapeta.
