In addition to Presenting Sponsor, Baccarat—the luxury brand internationally renowned for its extraordinary products symbolizing the excellence of the French Art de Vivre—will return for 2023 as the Official Trophy Purveyor of the Pegasus World Cup.
The trophies—handcrafted, rearing Pegase (French for ‘Pegasus’) Horses in clear and black crystal, standing over twenty inches tall—are ultimate symbols of power, joy, light, and energy. Inspired by Greek mythology and embodying the expertise of Baccarat, the Pegases’ movement and exceptional size are masterfully captured and originate from a single block of crystal.
Cut by a Meilleur Ouvrier de France for 90 hours, these sculptures, created by Allison Hawkes in collaboration with Baccarat, are also incredible feats of craftsmanship. Struck by light, the sculpted material reveals the muscles of the prancing Thoroughbreds. The Black Crystal Pegase, valued at $45,500, will be presented to the winner of the Pegasus World Cup Invitational. The Clear Crystal Pegase, valued at $39,000, will be presented to the winner of the Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational.
