I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Fear the Cowboy Confirmed for Pegasus World Cup
Well-traveled Fear the Cowboy, a three-time stakes winner at Gulfstream Park, has been confirmed as the 11th starter in the $16 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational Stakes (G1) to be run Jan. 27.

Fear the Cowboy, co-owned by Raffaele Centofanti and Kathleen Amaya, will run in the Pegasus for the partnership of Stronach Stables, and Ronald and Jerry Frankel. The 6-year-old son of Cowboy Cal trained by Efren Loza Jr. had a strong 2017 season compiling a 4-3-1 record in 10 starts. Two of those victories last year came in stakes at Gulfstream Park, the March 25 Skip Away Stakes (G3) and the Dec. 16 Harlan's Holiday Stakes (G3).

The Pegasus will be the first start in a grade 1 race for Fear the Cowboy. Since Loza took over the training of the horse in 2015, he has started at 12 tracks in nine states.

I'm off! Sunshine, Toast and a cool $16m lure Dettori to Florida early
Frankie Dettori has had enough of the cold weather in Britain and will head out to Miami earlier than originally planned in order to prepare for his ride on fancied outsider Toast Of New York in the $16 million Pegasus World Cup a week on Saturday.

Dettori partnered the 2014 Breeders' Cup Classic runner-up when he made a successful return from 1,130 days off the track in a conditions race at Lingfield last month, but the jockey had since taken it easy until returning for one ride at Kempton on Tuesday night.

He had two more rides on a bitterly cold afternoon at Lingfield on Wednesday and went close on the second of them, Toolatetodelegate.

Dettori remains very much a Mediterranean at heart despite more than 30 years in Britain and although he wrapped up as warm as he could, complete with a bandit-style mask over his lower face, he is ready for warmer climes.

"I'm going early as the weather here is so disgusting and I want to get acclimatised," he said. "Last week was fine, but now I might as well be there as here."

I honestly would love to see Toast run well. He likely won't beat Gun Runner, but I think he has the goods to take 2nd or 3rd if he's back to form against the rest of these.

Sounds like a lot of them are training well; among them Sharp Azteca looks extremely sharp.

I was checking TVG's schedule for next Saturday and it sort of looks like the racing channel may NOT be showing the Pegasus. There's a slot for the Turf Sprint from Gulfstream, but then the description of the programming after 1 PM switches to Santa Anita. No 'Pegasus' listed.
That may be because network NBC is showing the race, with a slot from 1:30 - 3 PM Pacific. I've noticed that NBC tends to be a bit territorial when it comes to its sports events, so there's a good chance that it has insisted on exclusive rights to the race.
That's too bad for TVG, which has devoted hours to promoting this race, and is going to have a "Works" show early next week. But...good for regular folks, who will have an hour-and-a-half to see horse racing on the big, network stage. ;)

After moving and going back to school, I have become "regular folk" again (i.e. without TVG) so I'm grateful for NBC's coverage. ;)

I was without TVG for years, so I do appreciate how lucky I am to have the ability to see SO MUCH live racing.
Maybe I should have said "racing-channel-challenged folks" instead of "regular?" ;) :lol:

When is the post position draw?
Seems like that's the only suspense.....who will get the dreaded outside stall?

Story lines of 8 horses that will be in the Pegasus - one more slot to fill to round out the field of 12.

According to the Pegasus web-site, the race will be televised on NBCSN - not on the national NBC channel.
