PEGASUS WORLD CUP SERIES WEEKEND PREVIEW

This Saturday, Gulfstream Park will host the 2021 Pegasus World Cup Invitational; a Grade 1 stakes race that will feature a field of 12 horses looking to make horse racing news with the win. There is $3 million up for grabs in this race and we now know where each of the horses will start; with the post draw made on Wednesday. Let’s take a quick look at the draw, as well as a little about each horse.

Pegasus World Cup Entries

1. Sleepy Eyes Todd (8-1) – This is a horse on a nice run of form; winning 3 of its last 4 races, including a win at Gulfstream Park last month.

2. Coastal Defense (20-1) – This is a horse that has only had 9 races as he enters his 5th year. He has won a couple, but he has never won a stakes race.

3. Independence Hall (20-1) – Much better at shorter distances; where he has won 4 of 5, Independence Hall has failed to impress in 2-turn races.

4. Knicks Go (5-2) – With Mucho Gusto and Charlatan skipping this race; Knicks Go is now in as the morning line favorite on Saturday. Can he make horse racing news with the win?

5. Jesus’ Team (8-1) – One to watch here. He finished 3rd in the Preakness last season and 2nd behind Knicks Go in the Breeders Cup Mile; a race he started at 62-1.

6. Kiss Today Goodbye (10-1) – This is a horse that is rounding into form after a slow start to his career, winning back-to-back races ahead of this one.

7. Tax (5-1) – This will be the second straight appearance in the Pegasus for Tax; who finished 9th last year after stumbling out of the gate.

8. Harpers First Ride (10-1) – Another horse on a nice run of form. He has won 4 of his last 5, including a pair of smaller stakes races at Laurel Park.

9. Last Judgement (20-1) – He loves this distance; but he has also not had a ton of success in graded stakes races.

10. Code of Honor (9-2) – He has been on a bit of a poor run since a pair of graded stakes race wins; in 2019. He did win his last time out at Gulfstream.

11. Mr. Freeze (15-1) – He had a nice win at the Fayette Stakes (G2) at Keeneland last October; but this is a bit of a step up.

12. Math Wizard (20-1) – He won the Pennsylvania Derby (G1) in 2019; but he has failed to get in the money in 6 of his last 7 races.
