Picking the Pegasus World Cup Winner
If you are wanting to handicap the Pegasus World Cup, it is good to be familiar with the Pegasus World Cup contenders.
Kiss Today Goodbye is a longshot in the race, despite coming off two straight wins including the important San Antonio (G2) at Santa Anita. In that event, he defeated 2020 Pegasus World Cup winner Mucho Gusto. Eric Kruljac trains the son of Cairo Prince.
True Timber finished eighth in this race last year, but most recently surprised by winning the Grade 1 Cigar Mile at Aqueduct. He is trained by up and coming to young trainer Jack Sisterson.
Code of Honor was a Grade 2 winner over the Gulfstream Park track in 2019, winning the famous Fountain of Youth Stakes and then going on to run second in the Kentucky Derby before winning the Grade 1 Travers and Grade 1 Jockey Club Gold Cup. Code of HOnor had a rough 2020, running second as the favourite in the Grade 1 Clark and only winning a lone Grade 3 event at Belmont Park. He has been training very well for this for trainer Shug McGaughey.
For trainer Brad Cox is Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile (G1) winner Knicks Go, who has to prove that he can stretch out to a distance of ground. A Grade 1 winning two-year-old who ran second in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile that year, Knicks Go has always been good and is on a three-race win streak now. He is a son of Paynter.
Tax won Gulfstream Park's Harlan's Holiday (G3), very impressively, defeating several nice runners. Mr Freeze was second in this race last year and went on to win the Grade 2 Fayette at prestigious Keeneland in October.
