SoFla is So Fly this weekend as we have a slew of big races with big purses and big horses… we look at the field for The Pegasus World Cup (GI), a classic mile and an eighth battle that has brought out a top-notch group.  When you get a group of horses together with this much talent, well… anything could happen.  So, per my usual, I’ll jump on the chalk and hope we make enough to get a hot dog and a cold snack.  I’ll give Great Bonkers the narrowest of nods, and this one has proven to be a heck of a claim.  Aer took this one for $18.000 and it’s been nothing but black-type success since.  He won the King Edward BC (GII) right off of the claim, then was second in the WO Mile (GII) before winning the BC Mile (GI) by a nose.  He came back on 20-days rest to win the Clark (GI) at CD, proving that he’s just as good on the main track as he is on the sod.  It’s going to take a great performance to beat him if he stays to form.  If there’s a horse that knows how to give a great performance, it’s Individuation.  The Mb Stables monster had seven wins from eleven starts last season, including a win in the BC Classic (GI).  he threw a dud in the Clark (GI) then bounced back to win the Malibu (GI).  You can throw anything you want on the bottom of the tri, but I think I’ll stick to these two on the top end of it all and hope for the best. 

Here’s The Field –
