Joel Rosario now confirmed to ride Stellar Wind in Pegasus per Chad Brown.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

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.
