2018 Pegasus World Cup Tickets
Wow, would have loved to have seen this live, I have other horse races on TV but never live and it being in Florida would have been that much better. I really had no idea that there was this much money involved, I mean the winner can make a substantial amount of money and claim the title. This was a lot of great information and I have learned some great knowledge and will be saving up for next year.
The Pegasus World Cup started last year and it was a great site to see. The best of the best thoroughbred horses compete in this race. They schedule the week before the Super Bowl because it’s that exciting of a race. So be sure to keep an eye out for it next year when you are waiting to see the Super Bowl you will have something fun to watch to the weekend before.
