The second installment of the Pegasus World Cup Invitational, the world’s richest thoroughbred race, returns to Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach on January 27 with more horsepower than before.

The new purse has swelled to $16 million: $1 million from owners of each of the 12 horses who will run, plus $4 million that Gulfstream owner The Stronach Group is ponying up.

“The 2017 Pegasus surpassed our expectations,” said Belinda Stronach, President of The Stronach Group. “In 2018, we will bring an even bigger, more modern and unforgettable entertainment experience to a global audience.”
