Pegasus World Cup News Minute Presented By DRF Bets: Who Do You Like?

There are nine horses entered in Saturday's $3-million, Grade 1 Pegasus World Cup Invitational – the final event on a spectacular 12-race program at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla.

In reality, it really comes down to two horses: defending Pegasus champion Knicks Go, the presumptive Horse of the Year in 2021, and Life Is Good, a once-beaten son of Into Mischief who exits a powerful performance in the G1 Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile at Del Mar in November on the same day that Knicks Go won the G1 Breeders' Cup Classic.

A poll of Paulick Report readers found a 52-30 margin in favor Knicks Go over Life Is Good to win the Pegasus, with 18% of readers thinking an upset could be in the offing with one of the other seven runners – especially if a pace duel between the two sets things up for a closer.

Paulick Report publisher Ray Paulick spells out who likes in the Pegasus and why, in today's Pegasus World Cup News Minute presented by DRF Bets.

The Pegasus World Cup will be televised by NBC Sports from 4:40-6 p.m. ET and on and the streaming Peacock Network. TVG will also have expanded coverage of all 12 Pegasus World Cup Day races that kicks off with an 11:30 a.m. first post.
