    I didn’t know they have a Pegasus World Cup Stake Day at Gulfstream Park, in Hallandale Beach, Florida.
    How did you find out about it? Did Gulfstream Park stay a dirt track, when they changed from 1-1/8 to 1-1/2 miles race? Is the Pegasus World Cup Stakes Day run every year at Gulfstream park?

    This was a well written article and I also liked how you explained the history of each race. I’ve never been to a horse race but I am a gambler so if I ever get the chance to make it to a horse race I know or sure I would go.
    It is helpful to have a site like yours to be able to read to gain knowledge before I go.

      Thanks Chad! Glad you enjoyed the article. Horse racing is an enjoyable sport but also unpredictable and difficult at times to wager on. We are constantly trying to improve our game every week.

      Thank you for the comment!
