For the second year, the Pegasus World Cup partnered with Baccarat, the French luxury brand internationally renowned as a leader in high-end and exclusive crystal products, as the event’s Official Trophy Purveyor. The championship trophies – made in clear and black crystal – are the ultimate symbols of elegance, mystery, power and luxury.
Inspired by Greek mythology and embodying the expertise of Baccarat, Pegasus’ 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, this sculpture created by Allison Hawkes represents a real technical feat. Struck by light, the sculpted material reveals the muscles of the prancing Thoroughbred.
The Clear Pegasus, valued at $34,500, was presented to the winner of the $1 million Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational (G1). The Black Pegasus, valued at $42,500, was presented to the winner of the $3 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational (G1).
