How to Bet the Pegasus World Cup Online

If you don't already have one - and especially in this era of no fans at the track - you need an online wagering platform to bet the Pegasus World Cup online. There are hundreds of online racebooks to choose from, but we have reviewed the best ones and even established which ones offer bonuses! Getting a bonus when you sign up or play the races is just as good as winning at the track!

Pegasus World Cup Best Bets

If you are new to racing, then the Pegasus World Cup best bet simple win, place, or show. With a win bet, a horse must finish in the top spot, first across the line. With place, he can finish first or second, and with show, first, second, or third.

More advanced bettors can play exacta, trifecta, and superfectas, whether straight (picking the runners who finish in the first, second, and then third, and/or fourth spots), or boxed (they can finish in any order).

Pegasus World Cup Predictions

Predicting the winner of the Pegasus World Cup is difficult because so many storylines are at play. If you want to handicap the Pegasus World Cup, it is good to know the Pegasus World Cup contenders inside and out.

A longshot pick in the Pegasus World Cup is Mr Freeze. He was fifth in the Grade 1 Clark Handicap in November, but is a winner over the track and took the Grade 2 Fayette at prestigious Keeneland in October.

The best runner in the Pegasus World Cup on paper is the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile (G1) winner Knicks Go. He has won three races in a row and was a Grade 1 winner as a two-year-old, but he has to prove that he can stretch out to a distance of ground.

Code of Honor was a Grade 2 winner over the Gulfstream Park track in 2019 when he won the Fountain of Youth Stakes here. That set him up for the Kentucky Derby, where he was placed second. Code of Honor had a tough 2020, running second as the favorite in the Grade 1 Clark and only winning alone Grade 3 event in New York. He has looked for perfect schooling in the paddock at Gulfstream Park in January.

Tax won the local prep here, Gulfstream Park's Harlan's Holiday (G3), very well, and looked strong doing it. True Timber ran eighth in this race last year, but most recently shocked the racing world by winning the Grade 1 Cigar Mile at Aqueduct. Sleepy Eyes Todd has won three of his last four starts, including a race on the 2020 Breeders' Cup undercard. He is unbeaten on the Gulfstream track. Math Wizard was a Grade 1 winner in 2019 when he beat the likes of War of Will and Improbable in the Pennsylvania Derby, but hasn't won since. Independence Hall was a major winner as a two-year-old, and recently returned to the races in California and has been doing well. He will get a chance to stretch out for this.
