12 GP The Pegasus World Cup (GI)
$3,000.000 4yo&Up 1 1/8m Dirt 124lbs
It was quite a day in SoFla… quite a day. The winner was 99/1 and paid $373.70 to place, the third favorite was last only beaten five lengths, and we had a dead heat (for ninth). Night Rider Stables’ Home Spirit has matched his ’22 win total (one) and banked the lion’s share of the $3,000.000 purse, winning The Pegasus World Cup (GI) by a quarter length, stopping the clock at 1:47.40 while shocking us all. It was a huge closing effort by the winner, splitting foes late, and that got the job done. Ags Cherokee was also somewhat overlooked, sent off at 14/1 odds, securing the second sport by a quarter length over post time favorite Mr. Pancake in third. It was another three-quarters of a length to Sensei in fourth while ’22 HofY Individuation ended up fifth.
