Tampa Bay Downs is a place that’s very close to my heart: I worked there before starting my job with America’s Best Racing, and it was an incredibly happy time in my life.

The $350,000 Lambholm South Holy Bull Stakes at on Saturday was the first of three major prep races at Gulfstream Park on the road to the Kentucky Derby.

All that was known about the inaugural Pegasus World Cup Invitational was that it would be done big — just how big would be revealed over the course of Saturday afternoon. As the day went on, it became clear that the world’s new richest race — with a $12-million purse — had attracted celebrities, high fashion and high rollers.

The inaugural Pegasus World Cup Invitational, which with a purse of $12 million is the new world’s richest horse race, will be held on Saturday, Jan. 28, 2017 at Gulfstream Park.

Man o’ War, regarded as one of the two or three best racehorses in the history of the sport in North America, will be honored by the Kentucky Horse Park with a year-long series of events in 2017 celebrating his 100th birthday anniversary.
