Pegasus World Cup Invitational (G1) at Gulfstream Park: Many handicappers were sent scrambling with the late defections of both OMAHA BEACH and SPUN TO RUN, but in the end, once again, ‘west was best’ for the third time in the four year history of this race as Southern California-based MUCHO GUSTO ($8.80) prevailed, who has only finished off the board once in his 11-race career.
Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational (G1) at Gulfstream Park: On Thursday evening, BRICKS AND MORTAR was honored as ‘Horse of the Year’ at the Eclipse Awards and less than 48 hours later, ZULU ALPHA ($25.60) flattered the champ’s victory in the Breeders’ Cup Turf (G1) by exiting that same race and winning this one.

Inside Information (G2) at Gulfstream Park: It’s quite appropriate that the man (Shug McGaughey) who trained the champion mare for whom this race is named also trained the winner of this race (PINK SANDS, $12.60).
