Nationally broadcast on NBC and distributed globally, Pegasus World Cup attracts A-list celebrity attendees, fashion icons, influencers and avid fans to catch a glimpse of the sport’s most iconic event of the year.
Launched in 2017 as part of 1/ST’s mission to excite, energize and modernize the sport of racing for a new generation of fans, the Pegasus World Cup provides lucrative opportunities for Thoroughbred owners and trainers.
With historic wins from some of the most celebrated names in Thoroughbred horse racing including Arrogate and 2021’s Knicks Go, Pegasus continues to draw the best in racing and entertainment through a continued focus on innovation.
Pegasus sets the stage for everyone.
Dominant from gate to wire, Knicks Go improved to a perfect 4-4 under trainer Brad Cox to claim the $3 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational. Under jockey Joel Rosario, Knicks Go quickly shot to the head of the pack out of the gate and maintained the top position throughout, before rocketing out of the final turn with a length lead and showing no signs of slowing down for the clear victory.
Colonel Liam, owned by Robert and Lawana Low and trained by Todd Pletcher, rallied powerfully under the steady hand of jockey Irad Ortiz Jr. to edge the field in a photo finish and claim the $1 million Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational stakes.
