Pegagus World Cup is World Richest Race for $16 Million
The $16 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational is just weeks away January 27 at Gulfstream Park, and the field is coming together and close to complete. The 2017 Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Gun Runner heads the field, but the four other top finishers from that BC Classic race will return to challenge in the worlds richest race: Collected, West Coast, War Story and Gunnevera.
Five other slots have been filled with commitments from Sharp Azteca, the recent Cigar Mile winner, and Clark Handicap winner Seeking the Soul. Also, former Breeders’ Cup Classic runner-up Toast of New York will run along with San Antonio Stakes winner Giant Expectations. The fabulous filly Stellar Wind will finish her career in the Pegasus, leaving two more slots and entries to fill the 12-horse field.
Among those being considered and most likely to commit are from the trio of Game Over,
Singing Bullet and Leavem in Malibu. Longshots who have a chance if any of those three don’t commit soon are Giuseppe the Great and Feat the Cowboy, who both won their last starts at Gulfstream. Destin and Prime Attraction are candidates as well.
Here is a full list of the Pegasus World Cup probable’s and possible candidates with their trainers and recent results.
Also during the Pegasus World Cup weekend is the Pegasus World Cup Betting Championship, which is a Live Money Contest and Handicapping Tournament at Gulfstream Park on January 26 & 27, 2018. A $12,000 entry fee or entry through a satellite tournament gets you a shot at an expected prize pool greater than $500,000. Click here for details.
