The Stronach Group announced on Oct. 15 that tickets for the 2019 Pegasus World Cup Championship Invitational Series are now on sale. The Pegasus World Cup will be held on Jan. 26, 2019, at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla., and the upcoming renewal will feature the addition of the Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational, a $7 million race, to join the $9 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational on dirt.
Tickets range from $60 to over $1,000 per person, offering a perfect race-day experience for each guest, ranging from exciting views of the finish line from the grandstand and track apron, to luxurious suites and VIP experiences. Tickets for the classic Track Apron experience will be available to the first 1,000 guests at $60 per person and will thereafter be available at $75 per person.
Tickets are available online at http://www.pegasusworldcup.com or by calling the Pegasus World Cup box office at Gulfstream Park at 1-833-464-7924 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Eastern daily.
The Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational was announced last month and will replace the Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap on the Jan. 26 racecard. That expands the Pegasus World Cup offerings to two, and the event is newly rebranded as a series offering a race apiece for elite dirt and turf racehorses. The Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational will be run at 1 3/16 miles on Gulfstream’s grass course, with the winner receiving $3 million of the total $7 million purse. The Pegasus World Cup Invitational, held at 1 1/8 miles on dirt, will grant $4 million of the total $9 million purse to the race winner. Arrogate won the inaugural Pegasus World Cup Invitational in 2017, and Gun Runner won the race this year.
Since 2017, the Pegasus World Cup has become one of the premier events on the Thoroughbred racing calendar, blending entertainment, innovation, and horse racing like no other event of its kind, capturing the attention of the racing industry, celebrities, and fans around the world.
In 2019, the Stronach Group will also introduce a new wager, the Pegasus Pick 24. The Pegasus Pick 24 will offer up the chance to bet on the exact finish order of all horses entered for both the Pegasus World Cup Invitational and the Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational, adding another layer to the race-day excitement. A whopping $5 million bonus awaits the lucky fan who hits the Pegasus Pick 24.
