Did you know that a new "BIG" event on the horse racing scene takes place in 8 days on January 28th, televised on NBC?
Some folks told me they knew nothing about it so I looked online this morning and Minnesota horse organizations and media don't seem to even be aware of the event, due to their myopic MN understanding of racing. Nevertheless, owners have put in $1,000,000 each for their horses to run in the $12,000,000 Pegasus World Cup..........which now includes tremendous horses like California Chrome and Arrogate!
This is a new creative and exciting event which brings some great competitors together for a huge race! (New, exciting and creative, I guess it's no wonder local organizations can't even recognize it as an important event.)
Anyway, if you want to see a great event I thought some of the real Minnesota horse folks and players would like to plan around watching it, or even wagering on it. It's on NBC from 4:30 to 6:00 EST on January 28th.
Enjoy, and here's a link for more information......plus watch Conor McGregor in the 13th Jockey for a few laughs.
