Welcome to the first annual URC- Pegasus World Cup Turf Race. This is one of a series of races for the competition we are running including races in World Cup and Dubai day series. The winner of the contest wins 2500 Credits and the winner of each race receives 500 credits. Not too shabby. I take good care of my People.Let’s get to the entries.
|1||HARD ROCK DENMARK Sko 6H kimstar0 T Brewer 3/1|
Led out by the comedian of URC, Kimugle. He won a local stakes race last time out busting out w a 113 Sp figure. And also in July of 2018 we won a G3 race at 10F running a 116 Sp. # breaking a URC Turf Speed record. He is the morning line favorite. The one to beat.
|2 COZENA Ire 5M oakridge8 P Chute 12/1|
Oakridge has his mare entered here who is 10 for 12 ITM lifetime. Two back she was entered in the URC – L Arc de Triomphe where she had the lead up until the last call and she finished 2nd. Her last win was at 10F in an Alw.
|3 FROST BARBARIAN Ky 4C spqr6th M Kiprusoff 11/1|
Here comes the new Barbarian in URC. None other than Waremblem. We spoke prior to him getting him ready for the race. He stated, “Frost Barbarian is looking to become the 3rd stakes winner from the only G1 winning War Emblem in the SIM, War in Heaven. He took a big leap forward in his seasonal debut. Is 3/3 at the distance. If he is going to ever become a stakes winner we should know after this. Has all the tools to be major threat in the race. Based on last effort, seems capable of throwing a 115. Then again, it could have all been a onetime thing and he will remain an allowance horse ultimately destined for claims. Huge moment in his career.” Looks to be right there at the finish line.
4 PIVOTAL HAPPENING Eng 6G 10000 G Ayso 7/1
This Gelding from wshumaker is royally bred. Pivotal x Storm Cat x Montjeu. His last 3 races he won were all at claiming races. If he fires like he did in his last race he has a shot.
|5 SADIRA Eng 5H oakridge13 W Bayless 7/1|
And oakridge’s 2nd entry in this race. His Sadira has won 2 in a row. He is the winner of last year’s URC Breeder’s Championship Turf race who holds the URC record in that Race w/ a 112 sp figure. He will run close to the lead and try to steal it.
|6 CHROME CITY Ky 4C kingsclaim A Hudson 16/1Out from the 6 hole comes Pboy who has his California Chrome horse that looks like the turf a little more than the dirt. He has won 2 out of his last 4 races. His sp #’s are rising as he gets older so he might be an upset here.
