Major musical acts are a staple at events like the Super Bowl and the NBA All-Star Game but, for years, if you wanted to catch a buzz-worthy performance at a racetrack, you’d have to go to the Preakness Stakes – the second leg of horse racing’s Triple Crown.

That changed in 2017 when the same people who run the Preakness (1/ST Racing) decided to bring an elevated experience (no shade if you love day-drinking and playing in the infield mud at Preakness) to the South Florida in the form of the Pegasus World Cup.

The Road to the 2022 Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve picks back up again this upcoming weekend with the Lecomte Stakes Jan. 22 at Fair Grounds.

Jake Ballis, principal owner of Black Type Thoroughbreds, has had considerable success in the horse business over a short amount of time. The very first horse the Houston native bought into with his childhood friend and former high school basketball teammate Rashard Lewis, Join in the Dance, made the 2009 Kentucky Derby.

The upcoming weekend on the North American horse racing calendar offers a final breather as far as big-time races are concerned before action picks back up again with the Lecomte Stakes Jan. 22 at Fair Grounds (a Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve prep).

1/ST EXPERIENCE, the innovation-focused hospitality and entertainment division of 1/ST, is pleased to announce an iconic entertainment line-up and exciting new hospitality partnerships for the 2022 Pegasus World Cup on Jan. 29 at Gulfstream Park.
