2024 Pegasus World Cup Turf Betting Odds at Gulfstream racecourse

Saturday, 27 January 2024

Warm Heart could be the horse to beat in this invitational encounter, with the runners and riders competing over a distance of little over a mile. Gulfstream Park plays host to an encounter where there’s a stack of high quality horses lining up and that includes Integration who has already produced some eye-catching performances.

Kingmax and Master Piece are both trading at similar odds and will be popular with each-way backers, with Webslinger and I’m Very Busy also available for a race where several bookies are now offering non-runner no bet.

Aidan O’Brien trains Warm Heart when it comes to the Pegasus World Cup Turf, with the four-year-old having delivered a number of solid performances during a relatively short career. There was a third-placed finish in the Longines Hong Kong Vase at Sha Tin in December, with a narrow runner-up placement in the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf before that.

Warm Heart is a filly who is understandably favourite, with a win in the Qatar Prix Vermeille coming at Longchamp. This came after a victory in the Yorkshire Oaks and the chief rival to her claims could be Integration who has scored successive wins in September and November, with the latest of these coming as the 4/5 favourite at Aqueduct Racecourse.

There was a five-length victory on that occasion, with the horse winning the New Kent County Virginia Derby over one mile and one furlong at the beginning of September. Kingmax could be another big contender and this runner is available at a backable each-way price, with the horse finishing runner-up in the Fort Lauderdale Stakes.

The five-year-old is trained by Jorge Delgado and the runner only lost by a head on that particular occasion, with Master Piece having landed the spoils in the Red Smith Stakes on 11 November when claiming a narrow victory against favourite Soldier Rising. This Grade 2 success was achieved by one mile and three furlongs.

Ivar was successful when winning the Jonathan B Schuster Memorial Stakes at Indiana Grand last summer, with the Paulo H Lobo-trained runner then running into second behind favourite Modern Games at Woodbine on 17 September. A month later, Ivar was able to land another runner-up spot in the Coolmore Turf Mile Stakes and the horse could be the one to beat for the Pegasus Turf.

The last time the horse turned out at the track was in the Breeders’ Cup Mile, with the horse scoring some big prize money when finishing behind Modern Games and two other runners. However, City Man has scored a successive hat-trick of wins and perhaps this horse is the value bet in a race where there’s a considerable prize pot on the table.

The six-year-old might benefit from having a recent success at Gulfstream Park, with the horse winning the Ft Lauderdale Stakes. The Christophe Clement-trained charge was able to win by a mile and a furlong and he might benefit from having crack jockey Joel Rosario on board. A double autumn win at Aqueduct means that his stock is high.

Lady Speightspeare is a five-year-old with a bright future and the fact that she benefits from a fillies’ allowance means that the horse has a strong chance of success. Between July and September last year, there were three successive wins before the mare ran in the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf where she was sent off at an enormous price.
