Who are the Pegasus World Cup Entries 2021?

How do I bet on the Pegasus World Cup from the UK?

Most major UK bookmakers, including these should offer betting on major US races:

Some bookmakers give UK bettors the option of going into the US Tote. Many punters prefer to take fixed odds before the race so they know exactly what their return will be if their horse is successful.

Pegasus World Cup Odds

Odds markets should become available later in the year when favourites emerge from this year’s season.

Pegasus World Cup Betting Tips

Betting tips aren’t currently available until you know the level of competition in the field. There will be a lot of speculation until horses and jockeys are entered and confirmed. Some of the key factors to look at naturally are going to be course form and current form.

You want to see what types of results each horse has had at the same length of race and in the same conditions that will be on race day. The horses in the race are going to have good form to date. Otherwise, their owners would not pay $500,000 to enter the horse.

With only four previous runnings of the Pegasus World Cup it can sometimes pay to look back at past winners. The Bob Baffert yard have trained two of the last four Pegasus World Cup winners so anything they run would be a strong Pegasus World Cup tip.

It’s also worth noting that all of the past winners of the Pegasus World Cup to date have been aged either 4 or 5 years-old.

Pegasus World Cup Invitational Entries Explained

In 2020 and for ongoing years, the entry fee was waived as the race officially became invitation-only. This means that race organisers only offer suitable prospects the chance to run. Last year was the first that a maximum field of 12 didn’t line up, although the 10 runners still provided a fine field. 2% of all purse winnings also get donated to various thoroughbred aftercare charities.

About the Pegasus World Cup

Gulfstream Park

Despite being in competition with Dubai World Cup night at Meydan and now the Saudi Cup at a similar time of year, the Pegasus World Cup has been a smash hit with US owners and trainers who have never been overly keen on the idea of flying to the other side of the planet for a race, even though American horses have won the Dubai World Cup on many occasions.

The calendar does allow horses to ship afterwards; Mucho Gusto was fourth in the Saudi Cup a month after winning the Pegasus this year and Arrogate did the Pegasus World Cup-Dubai World Cup double. The Stronach Group have capitalised with the Pegasus concept and many horses which may have been headed straight to Dubai are now viewing the Pegasus as their key early-season target.

The Pegasus is run at the historic Gulfstream Park at Hallandale Beach Florida, which is roughly equidistant between Fort Lauderdale and Miami on the Atlantic Coast. The race is run in late January; dates for 2021 are yet to be confirmed but the 24th and 31st would look the most likely prospects.

Pegasus World Cup Tickets can be bought through the official websites.

Pegasus World Cup Turf

The Turf is much more appealing to Europeans, of course, and indeed this year Magic Wand declined the World Cup for the Turf, where she finished second to Zulu Alpha, who is trained by Michael Maker.

Pegasus Horse Races Winners

In 2020, legendary trainer Bob Baffert won the race for the second time with Mucho Gusto, a four-year-old son of Mucho Macho Man. In the Turf, Zulu Alpha trained by Michael Maker landed an upset win.

Pegasus World Cup Results

Organisers offer 12 runners the chance to run first with five reserves. Mucho Gusto topped the reserve list as the 13th choice of the selectors. The only European horse offered a place was Aidan O’Brien’s globetrotter Magic Wand, who is smart but someway short of the best horses in Europe. One would imagine that a well-placed word or e-mail could easily secure a leading European horse a place.

  • 2020 – Mucho Gusto
  • 2019 – City of Light
  • 2018 – Gun Runner
  • 2017 – Arrogate

How to watch the Pegasus World Cup 2021

The race will be live on Sky Sports Racing, subject to a new deal being struck which is very likely, and betting will be available with all major British bookmakers with some offering opportunities to bet direct into US pools.

Pegasus World Cup History

Launched in 2017 by long time NYRA Chief Frank Stronach’s Stronach Group, whose colours were carried by such illustrious champions as Ghostzapper and Awesome Again, the concept was to ‘excite, energize and modernise the sport for a new generation of fans’.

The first ever Pegasus World Cup was won by the popular US-trained horse Arrogate, who scooped a staggering $12m when winning the race – he was trained by Bob Baffert, who has won two of the last four runnings of the Pegasus World Cup, and ridden by US jockey Mike E Smith.

The 2018 winner – Gun Runner – is the horse that’s recorded the fastest time to date 1:47.41.
