all in Pop Culture

John Perrotta is an accomplished author/writer and a lifelong horseman with experience in nearly every aspect of Thoroughbred racing.

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.

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.

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. 

We’re just a few days into 2022, and anticipation is already building for what’s to come this year. There’s sure to be plenty of exciting races, memorable moments, and great times to be had this year at tracks all across the country.

Everyone makes New Year’s resolutions; some are more successful than others. Here are some for racing fans to keep this year.
