This year marks the sixth edition of the Pegasus World Cup at Gulfstream Park. The Pegasus World Cup Invitational Stakes, which was inaugurated in 2017 as the richest horse race in the world, isn’t just a destination for the best horses, the event also attracts a range of celebrities and major entertainment personalities.

The 2022 Pegasus World Cup will be held on Saturday, Jan. 29. Securing the right ticket for the Pegasus could get you a prime view of the races, premium food and drink, and an up-close view of epic musical performances that have become a staple of the event since its launch. Artists who have graced the Pegasus stage after the races include Post Malone (2018), Snoop Dogg & Mark Ronson (2019) and Nelly & T-Pain (2020).

Whether you plan on attending for the music, the racing, or for both, there are a range of ticketing options this year. Let’s take a quick look at our three favorite ways to experience the 2022 Pegasus World Cup.


Carousel Club

An announcement on this year’s Pegasus entertainment lineup is imminent. If you want to be in the middle of all of it, the Carousel Club is your ticket.

It will feature DJ Cassidy’s “Pass The Mic” LIVE with special surprise legendary guests during the Pegasus World Cup.

Developed in collaboration with Breakwater Hospitality Group, innovators behind the wildly successful Wharf locations, the Carousel Club boasts live entertainment, exciting food and beverage programming, giant video screens, interactive games, and unparalleled “up on the rail” views as the horses thunder toward the finish line.

If you’re looking for a milder pace and want to enjoy the full day of races in controlled comfort, Ten Palms is the place to be. Ten Palms offers both indoor and outdoor seating that caters to passionate fans and loyal guests, while offering some of the best views of the horses as they cross the finish line.

A table at Ten Palms comes with all-day gourmet food and drink set to a backdrop of floor-to-ceiling windows offering a panoramic view of the entire racecourse.

Ten Palms is also conveniently located for fans who want to check out the horses in the paddock or watch the post parade on the track. Ten Palms tickets are available on an individual basis, including bar seating, as well as tables for two, four, or six guests.


Flamingo Room

In partnership with luxury hospitality and cultural shape-shifter Faena Miami Beach, the Flamingo Room offers the most premium Pegasus VIP experience.

Naturally, the Flamingo Room will also deliver on premium dining and beverage offerings with finish-line racetrack views.
