Horse racing is a sport for the affluent! And they rejoice at the news that tomorrow is the second edition of the richest horse racing event in the world: The Pegasus Cup. Last year, at its inauguration, it surpassed the Dubai World Cup as the most luxurious race. We are talking about a prize fund of 16 million dollars! And that does not include the usual side prizes! Such events draw out all the winning bets of the greatest gamblers, yourselves included, provided that you do have a betting account via the best agent for Asian bookies to use!
It will all happen on January 27 at the Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Florida. The race distance is 1 and 1/8 miles on dirt and eligible participants are horses 4 years old or more.
The question of the day is whether there would be any horse this year to challenge the records held by last year’s winner Arrogate which brought to his owner Juddmonte Farms 7.5 million dollars. Record #1 is the time of 1:46.83 taken to cover the distance and record #2 is the gap of 5 lengths over the runner up Shaman Ghost. 12 starters will try to do that and as we can see from the list, neither the winner nor the runner up are amongst them:
|Singing Bullet||Stronach Stables||Dale L. Romans|
|West Coast||Gary and Mary West||Bob Baffert|
|Stellar Wind||Mrs. John Magnier, Michael Tabor, Derrick Smith||Chad C. Brown|
|Sharp Azteca||Ivan Rodriguez and Martin Scharf||Jorge Navarro|
|Collected||Speedway Stable LLC||Bob Baffert|
|Fear the Cowboy||Kathleen Amaya and Raffaele Centofanti||Efren Loza Jr.|
|War Story||Looch Racing Stables, Inc., Glenn K. Ellis and Imaginary Stables||Jorge Navarro|
|Toast of New York||Al Shaqab Racing||James A. Osborne|
|Gun Runner||Winchell Thoroughbreds LLC and Three Chimneys Farm||Steven M. Asmussen|
|Seeking the Soul||Charles E. Fipke||Dallas Stewart|
|Giant Expectations||Exline-Border Racing LLC, Gatto Racing LLC and Garrett Zubok||Peter Eurton|
Let’s discuss now the favorites and their chances before you make a decision on which horse to place your bets on, using the Sbobet account that you have just decided to open.
At the moment, the Singing Bullet with the amazing speed, the Sharp Azteca coming off a great victory at the Grade 1 Cigar Mile and the Gun Runner (ready to be crowned as the 2017 Horse of the Year at the 47th Eclipse Awards at Gulfstream Park) lead the odds. However, it is not such a clear cut as more or less all horses are close enough to have chances. That guarantees a very interesting race, competitive to the very end, and a race where everything can happen if the conditions of the day (heat, humidity, condition of the dirt, mood of the horse, etc…) are favourable to one while making the other uncomfortable.
So do your homework, make a decision on which horse to bet on, open your Sbobet account with the best agent and place your winning bet at the best odds of the market! Now!
