The following is a list of the horses, owners, and trainers who have been invited to participate in the Pegasus World Cup this year. Interestingly there is only one invite, Magic Wand, from overseas. Maximum Security is opting out and pointing to the Saudi Cup and a much larger purse. Assuming the the majority of these others go, it looks like a competitive field.
Omaha Beach is already on the grounds and getting familiar with the Gulfstream Park racetrack. You can watch him here.
Midnight Bisou is also pointing to the Saudi Cup, but it is surprising she didn’t get an invite.
The Pegasus will be run on January 25th.
