It’s a MASSIVE card Saturday for the Pegasus World Cup and can be a bit overwhelming when getting your stables started. Gino Buccola has got some picks for you if you need a quick ‘cliff notes’ version just to get the strategy going.

Games lock at 11am Saturday – plenty of $$ to be won!


2nd Race #8 Big City (9-2)

$6,500 StableDuel price

He should take a nice step forward off his strong debut race last month. He lost to a very nice horse and he will now get lasix for the first time, big player.

4th Race #1 Beechnut Trophy (12-1)

$750 StableDuel

Mare has hit the board in all 3 synthetic starts, saves ground and comes running.


5th Race #3 Headline News (15-1)

$500 StableDuel

Sharp gelding is looking for his 3rd straight win. Underrated in this spot.


6th Race #1 Romagna Mia (8-5)

$9,400 StableDuel price

Multiple Graded Stakes winner just crushed by 7 lengths over this synthetic surface. No doubt the one to beat.


7th Race #4 Dreams of Tomorrow (8-1)

$3,000 StableDuel price

He had a tough trip last time out against a lot of these same rivals.  He draws post 4 today and shouldn’t have to be so wide.


8th Race #3 Stone Age (9-2)

$7,500 StableDuel price

He has some serious back class and when he shows up with his best it’s really good. There is not a lot of early speed in here and he should sit very nice trip throughout this race.


9th Race #9 Maryquitecontrary (2-1)

$9,000 StableDuel price

Last year’s winner of this race is no doubt the horse to beat and she will come running late.


10th Race #9 Didia (5-1)

$6,000 StableDuel price

Multiple graded stakes winner is a very honest mare and she’s one of the top contenders in here at a fair price.


11th Race #11 Tumbarumba (8-1)

$3,000 StableDuel price

He can sit off nicely and pass horses and he will make his second start off a short break. If you eliminate his race on a sloppy track and the races on the grass, he’s been in the money in all the other 8 starts on dirt.


12th Race #5 Webslinger (15-1)

$500 StableDuel price

This guy is a deep closer and he’ll always make his late run; he just needs the right type of early speed to run at. Comes flying late.


Good luck!!
