Richest Of All: 2018 Pegasus World Cup

January 1, 2018 by

The Two Go Together

For every grand slam horse racing event there is bound to be a grand slam betting challenge short on its heels.  The Pegasus World Cup is about as grand slam as it gets in the world of horse racing and as such, the Pegasus World Cup Betting Challenge comes as no surprise.

The buy-in event will take place on Friday the 26th as well as Saturday the 27th of January, in order to run in conjunction with the Pegasus World Cup.  On Friday players will be required to bet a minimum of $800 dollars on at least five of the races, with Saturday’s minimum requirements being even more hard to come by at $1,000 on the same amount of races and at least a wager of $3,000 on the Pegasus World Cup itself.

No country for poor men, then.

Not A Competition Without Rules

The rules for the Pegasus World Cup Betting challenged have been released and for the first time include a clear stipulation regarding collusion among players.  The combining of entries is strictly forbidden by the rules and players guilty of this particular offense will most probably end up being disqualified altogether.

It is, however, permitted for a player to combine two of his own entries.  The collusion rules do not apply to a single person, only to those opting to go at it together (two or more people).

Navarro Waiting On The Word

Meanwhile, there are still three available spots for the 2018 Pegasus World Cup and Sharp Azteca is laying in waiting to occupy one of those slots.  Trainer Jorge Navarro confirmed that nothing has been decided as of yet and that it did not go about grabbing the last available slots but instead it was important to establish whether Sharp Azteca would be up to the challenge of running the race.

Navarro is also the official trainer of Pegasus World Cup-confirmed competitor War Story.  War Story earlier on finished in 4th place in the Group 1 Breeders’ Cup Classic.

Gunnevera Secures A Start

The 2018 Pegasus World Cup will only be the second instalment of the event and as such owner Salomon Dal-Vallee is all the more excited to be running prized athlete Gunnevera in this year’s event.  The Venezuelan had reached an agreement with William Gallo of Gallo Stables to run Gunnevera in this year’s tournament.

Gallo Stables has issued an official statement, saying that the group was excited to be partnering with Gunnevera at such a high-profile event.
