 The $75,000 Phoenix Gold Cup and two stakes worth $50,000 each highlight the 38-race stakes schedule at Turf Paradise Race Course in Phoenix, Arizona.

The 156-day meet, with five live race days weekly, begins Oct. 1 and runs through May 8, 2011.

The six-furlong Gold Cup, which was reduced in value from $100,000 to $75,000 last year, will be renewed Feb. 19.

The Jan. 15 Cotton Fitzsimmons Mile, named after the Phoenix Suns NBA basketball coach and executive, and the Feb. 26 Turf Paradise Derby, are also among the meet highlights with purses of $50,000 each.
