Are you considering attending the 2023 Pegasus World Cup this coming January 28? Then you’re not alone. The Pegasus World Cup is one of the most prestigious and most-awaited horse racing events that many fans have been looking for every January of every year. It’s prominent and popular, and many big names in the horse racing industry will be attending.
Not only that, but the shows at the event will be star-studded as many artists and celebrities will also be attending. But the essential thing in this year’s Pegasus World Cup is that the Pegasus Mare and Filly Turf Invitational Stakes will join it. With seven graded stakes, the Pegasus World Cup will be bigger and better than its predecessors. But with that, if this is your first time attending this horse racing event, here are some things you should know.
If you think you’re too late when buying tickets, then you’re wrong. There are still a lot of seats at various price points that you can still buy for yourself and your family. However, that doesn’t mean that you should take your time. Many seats are being bought off daily, so if you want you and your family to sit close by, you should buy seats now.
Although COVID-19 is not a widespread pandemic anymore, you should still observe health and safety along with the venue. That said, where is the Pegasus World Cup going to be held? It’s still in the Gulfstream Park like usual. Thankfully,even though it will be too packed, Gulfstream Park is full of hand sanitizers inside the field and along the seats. Also, it’s still recommended to bring your pack of sanitizers and alcohol, as well as face masks.
The usual things in Gulfstream Park are still prohibited, as well as some other things. It’s still the usual, like guns, drugs, glass containers, etc. If you’re thinking of bringing metal furniture, fireworks, non-clear bags, and scaffolding, you might not go.
The Pegasus World Cup is the biggest horse racing event in the winter, bringing many celebrities to the nearby Hallandale Beach, Florida, track every year. In previous years, the event was attended by A-list celebrities like Snoop Dogg, Post Malone, Nelly, Jennifer Lopez, Vin Diesel, Lenny Kravitz, and Karolina Kurkova. Of course, that’s not all, as Bella Thorne, Olivia Culpo, Usher, Maria Menounos, Carson Kressley, Vanessa Hudgens, and Pharell Williams have also graced the show.
If you’re planning to wager on the Pegasus World Cup, you might consider bringing cash on hand. Of course, you can still bet online while attending the event, but sites might crash that day since many people will also bet on the event. If your favorite site is full, you might want to try your luck with the tellers in the venue.
There will be racing ambassadors available to help you during the event. They will run you through concepts and even give tips on how to enjoy the event to its fullest. Not only that, but if you run into any problems, you can approach one and let them help you with any problems that you have on hand.
You can find plenty of fun betting at the venue itself because there are a lot of them, and most of them are running promotions and discounts for the events. However, we can’t ignore the convenience of betting online. Naturally, it comes with the caveat of legality and regulated sites that are allowed to operate in your state. However, if you want to compare, here’s the case of both sides.
Online betting is straightforward as long as you find the right site. Not only that, but you can also bet just with your phone and a good internet connection. You can even bet even while the race is ongoing. However, there are only limited sites and apps depending on your state. That might be a problem for you if you’re an online-only horse racing bettor in the comforts of your home.
Betting at the track offers entertainment value as you can attend the shows and see celebrities. Not only that, but some tellers are also running discounts and promotions. However, betting in person can be troublesome as you’ll run to the tellers and the crowd. Also, the travel might be bothersome if you’re far from the venue.
The 2023 Pegasus World Cup is right around the corner, so if you’re considering attending the event, you might want to move fast and buy the tickets now. It will be bigger this year, so you might not want to miss it. See you there.
