HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Entries will be taken and post positions drawn Tuesday, Jan. 22 for the $16 million Pegasus World Cup Championship Invitational Series Saturday, Jan. 26 at Gulfstream Park.

The draw, to be held inside Frankey’s Sports Bar at Gulfstream Park, begins at 11:30 a.m. and can be viewed at www.gulfstreampark.com and www.facebook.com/gulfstreampark.

Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) winner and 2018 Horse of the Year finalist Accelerate will be the likely favorite making his final career start in the third running of the $9 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational (G1).

Also among the Pegasus contenders are 2018 Florida Derby (G1) winner Audible, 2018 Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile (G1) winner City of Light, 2018 Cigar Mile (G1) winner Patternrecogntion; 2017 Clark Handicap (G1) winner Seeking the Soul; multiple graded-stakes winner Gunnevera, an earner of more than $4 million lifetime; and Mexican superstar Kukulkan, undefeated in 14 starts.

Yoshida, a Grade 1 winner on turf and dirt, returns to the grass for the inaugural $7 million Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational (G1). Winner of the Joe Hirsch Turf Classic (G1) last fall, he ran fourth in the Breeders’ Cup Classic after winning the Woodward (G1) in September. 

Hall of Famer Bill Mott-trained stablemate Channel Maker and Next Shares are also Grade 1 winners, while Japanese-bred Group 1 winner Aerolithe and Irish-bred Group 2 winner Magic Wand lend an international flavor to the Pegasus Turf.

The Pegasus World Cup and Pegasus World Cup Turf – the richest races on either surface in North America – headline a blockbuster 12-race program featuring nine stakes, six graded, worth $17.125 million in purses. First-race post time is 11:30 a.m.
                 
Rainbow 6 Carryover Jackpot Swells to $424,001 for Wednesday
            
There will be a carryover jackpot of $424,001.03 in the 20-cent Rainbow 6 when live racing returns to Gulfstream Park with an 11-race program starting at noon Wednesday, Jan. 23.

The popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the eighth consecutive racing day on Monday’s special Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday program. Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $16,882.04.

One horse, 60-1 long shot Eric the Salesman, was live to take down the jackpot heading into Monday’s finale, finishing third behind Fightin Irish Stable’s Homedrill ($9.80).

A total of $263,826 was wagered into the Rainbow 6, which began with a carryover of $360,693 from Sunday. It has been solved five times since the 2018-19 Championship Meet kicked off Dec. 1, the last being a $188,900.81 payout Jan. 9.

The carryover jackpot is only paid out when there is a single unique ticket sold with all six winners. On days when there is no unique ticket, 70 percent of that day’s pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners, while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.

A carryover of $3,766.12 will be available in the $1 Super Hi-5 for Wednesday’s opener.
Notes: Jockey Luis Saez added three more wins to his Championship Meet-leading totals with Breaking Bread ($3.20) in the fourth race, On With God ($11) in the sixth and C Major ($14.40) in the eighth. 

Rainbow 6 Carryover: $424.001.03

Super Hi-5 Carryover: $3,766.12
