Pegasus World Cup Entries
The Pegasus World Cup is a restricted to a 12 horse field that will run on a dirt track at 1-1/8 mile (9 furlongs). Twelve owners reserved a spot in the starting gate for $1 million USD each. Every owner reserving a gate spot have the option to race, lease, share a starter, or possibly selling their starting spot. The winning horse owner will receive $7 million USD but every horse that starts in the race will receive some kind of payout. Second place receives $1.75 million, third will receive $1 million and every other horse that starts getting $250,000.
The owners of the $1 Million gate spots are permitted to pre-enter two horses, an “A” horse, and a “B” horse, in the event of a scratch. If the “A” horse races in the Pegasus World Cup, then the “B” horse would be eligible to compete in the newly created Poseidon Stakes. The Poseidon Stakes will run under identical conditions as the Pegasus World Cup but will require a $20,000 entry fee and offer a $400,000 purse.
In the event of a scratch “for a certified veterinary reason,” the owner will receive the last-place portion of the race’s purse and their share of the net revenue from the race. If the owner or trainer scratch the horse for some reason, then the stakeholder forfeits the purse winnings and any other revenue.
There is four $1 million dollar starting gates left. Who will be in the running? Stay tuned to find out.
