And we’re off to the races!
January marks the return of one of the premier equestrian events in the world, the Pegasus World Cup, which will see thoroughbred horses in a race to the finish line and a headlining afterparty performance by Calvin Harris.
Presented by Baccarat, this year’s event takes place on Saturday, January 27 at Gulfstream Park and will once again bring a unique Miami experience curated by Palm Tree Crew and David Grutman’s Groot Hospitality.
Launched in 2017, the Pegasus World Cup is considered South Florida’s leading luxury sports and lifestyle event of the year. Broadcast nationally and distributed globally, it attracts A-list celebrity attendees, tastemakers, influencers and avid racing fans to get a glimpse of one of the most thrilling dates on the racing calendar.
And this year’s edition is no exception, as the thrilling race cards feature the $3 million Pegasus World Cup Championship Invitational (GI), the $1 million Pegasus World Cup Championship Turf Invitational (GI), and the $500,000 Pegasus World Cup Filly & Mare Turf Invitational (GIII).
Winners of the Pegasus World Cup Invitational and the Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational will receive stunning trophies, provided by Baccarat as the Official Trophy Purveyor. The Pegase (French for ‘Pegasus’) Horses are crafted from crystal and stand at over 20 inches tall.
New this year is the Baccarat Garden at Carousel Club, an exclusive viewing area of the races. The space will have its own private entrance, a bar with handcrafted cocktails served in Baccarat glassware, a prime view of performances and more. Another exclusive experience is the Flamingo Room, offering a bird’s-eye view of the track and premium dining experience with Groot Hospitality hotspots Gekkō, Komodo, Papi Steak, Swan and Casadonna.
As expected, the atmosphere will kick up a notch after the races with trackside performances at Gulfstream Park’s iconic Carousel Club. Calvin Harris will take the stage, along with DJ Tyson O’Brien, TikTok star and DJ Xandra Pohl and others.
Prices to the Pegasus World Cup start at $150 and go up to 1,619. VIP tickets, which include entry to the Carousel Club for Calvin Harris’ performance, start at $400. More information and tickets can be found at www.pegasusworldcup.com.
