Pegasus Cup: The Million-Dollar Race

The Pegasus Cup is one of the most-awaited and historical horse racing events in the country. With its long line of prized breeds competing for glory, it is no surprise that this ongoing series is not something that horse racers and bettors can ignore.

The said race will be held on the Gulfstream Park Casino and Hotel race track, and participants will run through the tracks along with its rich, South Florida landscape. A combination of nature’s beauty and its rough track races.


Horse Highlights: Knicks Go

In this year’s Pegasus Cup, the event hosts a spectacular line of top racers, each a winner of their respective cups. But nothing is as dramatic as Knicks Go’s career development and its journey on the Pegasus Cup.

Knicks Go’s career recently took a wrong turn with its series of defeats and under performances in the past events despite his exceptional ability and inherited physical prowess, until his handlers made a trainer change from the past year under Brad Cox.

Under Cox’s supervision, Knicks Go became a record beater in his races and showed excellent runs in Breeder’s Cup while outpacing top breeds in his professional career. With his participation in the Pegasus Cup, it is unclear how Knicks Go would handle its competitors, with different sides providing their insights on how this race would affect Knicks Go’s career.
