WHY DID FRANK STRONACH SAY THAT THE 2020 PEGASUS WORLD CUP WOULD HERALD A NEW ERA IN AMERICAN THOROUGHBRED RACING?
2020 will be the fourth year for the running of the Pegasus World Cup. The was inaugurated in 2017 with a purse of $12,000,000. Trying to attract horse from Europe the race encouraged horses to run without the pre-race medication, Lasix. For compliance the race gave those that did a five-pound-weight allowance. However, this year the race has raised the bar. This year the use of ALL RACE DAY MEDICATIONS is prohibited. Because of this new rule for 2020, Frank Stronach has labeled the 2020 Pegasus World Cup a “new era”.
