Pegasus World Cup

The inaugural running of the $12 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational, held earlier this year at Gulfstream Park, sure lived up to the hype when we saw Arrogate continue his domination. On January 27, 2018, the Pegasus World Cup returns to Gulfstream Park, running for a new record-setting purse of $16 million. Whether you’re looking for stakeholders, contenders, Pegasus Day races, news, 2017 Pegasus World Cup results and payouts, picks and tips, or handicapping advice, you will have the most updated information here.

2018 PEGASUS WORLD CUP STAKEHOLDERS

The way that the Pegasus World Cup works is simple. The race is comprised of 12 stakeholders, each representing a group of individuals and owner groups that purchased a spot in the starting gate for $1 million each. For 2018, another $4 million will be contributed by The Stronach Group, making the purse an astronomical $16 million. The official 2018 stakeholders have yet to be determined but will be updated as soon as they are announced.

2018 PEGASUS WORLD CUP RACES AND CONTENDERS

The inaugural 2017 Pegasus World Cup Invitational was not the only stakes race at Gulfstream Park that day, as we saw several stakes races run on the undercard, too. A few of the highlights included Curlin’s Approval winning the $100,000 Hurricane Bertie Stakes, Imperative rallying to win a thrilling $400,000 Poseidon Handicap over Stanford, Suffused taking the Grade 3, $200,000 La Prevoyante Handicap, and more.
