They’ve upped the purse since last year’s inaugural running pushing the prize beyond that of the Dubai World Cup and making it the richest horse race in the world, and if that’s not a good enough excuse to have a bit of a flutter on the gee-gees I don’t know what is. Placing a bet on the Pegasus World Cup at BetVictor couldn’t be easier, but picking a winner from among this massively strong field is a different story.
To say the line up is star studded would be an understatement. The Gulfstream Park based American answer to the Dubai World Cup has, in just its second running, brought together one of the finest gatherings of race horses the world has yet seen all in Florida vying for a share of that mammoth $16 Million prize purse and guaranteeing a race you just don’t want to miss, nor miss out betting on. So just which of these amazing steeds should you back if you bet on the Pegasus World Cup? Good question.

This is no race for the faint of hoof. When Gunnevera, winner of the Tangelo Stakes, is loitering out at 25/1 you know something special is in the offing, and if you’re thinking it seems a bit mean to put the horse that came sixth in The Breeders Cup so far out do bear in mind that all top four finishers are also in the running this time out, and, if you’re planning to bet on sports in the US in the near future, all are worthy of consideration to be your bet on the Pegasus World Cup. Unlike some horses I could mention.
The Biggest Purse, The Best Field, The Greatest Race?
Just how lucky one would have to be feeling to bet on Singing Bullet at 66/1 or Giuseppe The Great at 50/1 is incalculable, and frankly the same goes for Game Over, Fear The Cowboy or War Story each of whom garner the same decidedly optimistic odds, they’re tempting long shots to be sure, but you better be feeling hugely blessed in the good fortune department before you stake the farm on any of them at BetVictor. On the other hand, at least you can expect them to actually turn up at the starting gate.
Destin and Mind Your Biscuits might not, although frankly even if they did it might not matter if they hadn’t, and Gunnevera really does mark the outside edge of a sensible bet on the Pegasus World Cup at 25/1, odds it shares at BetVictor with Giant Expectations who recently won the San Antonio Stakes, beating out Collected, one of the favorites this race. Are either of them worth backing? You bet they are and if you can worm your way around US gambling laws a furtive fiver on either would be a nice punt.

Of course Seeking The Soul gets 20/1 alongside Stellar Winds, the former winning the Clark Handicap over the same 9 furlong distance, and the latter winning the Clement L Hirsch G1 two years on the bounce. If Prime Attraction or Forever Unbridled get to the gate they might be worth a go, but perhaps it’s 16/1 shot Toast Of New York who’ll take your fancy at BetVictor when you place your bet on the Pegasus World Cup. If so get on it quick because those odds will close up dramatically very soon.
Sharp Azteca (source: Twitter)
Of course all eyes are on Sharp Azteca at 8/1, the winner of the Cigar Mile and Kelso Handicap, who might just bring some challenge to the top three. West Coast gets 6/1, Collected 5/1 and Gun Runner just 4/5 to repeat that Breeders Cup win for which the other two will be seeking revenge. Will they get it? You’ll find out on January 27th with the rest of us, but if you’re in the US gambling news of one of the longshots winning will ring in a vast fortune for someone, think again, this is a favorites race, baby.
