NY Traffic is the third invitee we expect to see at Gulfstream Park. He will be running the Pegasus World Cup this year with a rating of 6.53. The last race he participated in was the 2023 Harlan’s Holiday, a Grade 3 race that crossed the finish line third.
Hoist the Gold won’t back down as he captured the attention of the horse racing fans on his 2023 Cigar Mile G2 race, where he ended up victorious. His trainer, Dallas Stewart, was so proud, especially when the racehorse got invited to run for the Pegasus Cup.
Next on the list of invitees is Senor Buscador. Trainer Todd Fincher ensures that this thoroughbred will undergo as much experience as he can to unleash the champion underneath. That said, Senor Buscador was noticed and invited to be part of the 2024 Pegasus World Cup. This racehorse currently has a 6.11 rating.
Since his racing debut, Skippylongstocking has run several races, making him one of the most experienced runners on the list. Under the guidance of trainer Saffie A. Joseph, JR, this thoroughbred showcased talent and determination that can help him grab the Pegasus title this year.
With a rating of 5.27, O’Connor successfully made it to the Pegasus invitee list. He is the second thoroughbred under the guidance of Saffie A. Joseph, Jr., who will be entering the race. O’Connor won his last race, the 2023 Harlan’s Holiday G3.
Horse racing fans will see trainer Antonio Sano on the racetrack during the Pegasus World Cup 2024 race day as his trainee Il Miracolo is one of the invitees to the event. That said, it’s also worth watching this racehorse as he will be showing great prowess on the racetrack that day.
Trainer Brad Cox isn’t joining the 2024 Pegasus World Cup with only one entry. Aside from his horse First Mission, Cox’s other racehorse, Saudi Crown, will also showcase his talents on the racetrack as he attempts to grab the title and go against his stablemate.
The 2024 Pegasus World Cup won’t be completed without a Todd Pletcher horse on the invitee list. That said, Dynamic One, the trainer’s horse, is expected to run and dominate the Pegasus race this year. Despite finishing 6th in his last race, which was the 2022 Jockey Club Gold Cup G1, with the help of his experienced trainer, Dynamic One has a huge potential to win the race.
This next invitee proves that horse racing isn’t only a man’s domain. With Trademark on the list, his trainer, Vitoria Oliver, will show the world that even a woman can do the job. So far, Oliver has done a great job with Trademark, as he just won the 2023 Clark Stakes G2. It was Trademark’s last race before he got invited to the 2024 Pegasus World Cup.
Last but not least is Grand Aspen. Grand Aspen is another Todd Pletcher entry that freshly came from the 2023 Harlan’s Holiday G3 race, where he crossed the finish line second. Looking through this thoroughbred race record, bettors and fans will watch this contender closely.
