The Pegasus Invitational is the first big race of the year.
Super star horse ARROGATE
was the first to be crowned the Pegasus Champ in
2017. The race was the idea of Frank Stronach. He was looking for a major
stakes race between the Breeders' Cup and the Dubai World Cup.
Like the previous four races, the 1 1/8 mile race at
Gulfstream Park is by Invitation only. The invitations have gone out. The
potential field is headlined by CHARLATAN and defending champ, MUCH GUSTO. Unfortunately,
MUCHO GUSTO won't have the opportunity to defend his crown due to a soft tissue
injury discovered after the Grade II, San Antonio Stakes. As a result, MUCHO
GUSTO will be retired.
Along with CHARLATAN, these are the other preferred
CODE OF HONOR
HARPERS FIRST RIDE
KISS TODAY GOODBYE
SLEEPY EYES TODD
With MUCHO GUSTO out, it opens the door for one of the Also
Eligibles, list in order of preference.
According to MyBookie.ag CHARLATAN is the pre-race favorite
at 3/2, followed by KNICKS GO at 3-1 and TAX at 7-1.
