Pegasus World Cup Race to have $16 Million Purse in 2018

Racing news World’s Richest Race now $16 Million for Pagasus World Cup Invitational

A $12 million horse race wasn’t big enough. Organizers of the world’s richest race announced Wednesday that the 2018 buy hcg clomid nolvadex Pegasus World Cup Invitational will have a $16 million dollar purse. The race is scheduled for Jan. 27 at Gulfstream Park.

The inaugural $12 million Pegasus World Cup in January was won by Arrogate. That purse eclipsed the $10 million for the Dubai World Cup, also won by Arrogate on March 25.

“The 2017 Pegasus World Cup Invitational surpassed our expectations and we believe took the sport of thoroughbred racing to an exciting new level,” said Belinda Stronach, president of the Stronach Group.

The winner of the 2018 Pegasus race will claim more than $9 million. That’s more than only eight horses running in North American have reached in their entire career.

The Pegasus World Cup Invitational is the brainchild of Frank Stronach. The race is funded largely by a $1 million entry fee by the connections of each of the 12 starting horses. The Stronach Group will contribute the additional $4 million to the 2018 race.

“In 2018, we will bring an even bigger, more modern and unforgettable entertainment experience to a global audience,” said Belinda Stronach.

Fans may wonder about additional costs, as over 16,000 attended the 2017 Pegasus World Cup day at Gulfstream, and paid $100 to get into the track that normally does not have an admission charge. No announcement has been made about entry fees or other entertainment plans.

But the race and promotion was a big success, as the handle at Gulfstream on Pegasus World Cup day was a track-record $40.2 million.
