A world class day of racing at Gulfstream Park on Saturday culminates with a must-see showdown between the top two horses in the country. The 2022 Pegasus World Cup features Breeders' Cup Classic champion Knicks Go and Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile winner Life Is Good. The Pegasus World Cup 2022 closes out a high-caliber, 12-race card that features seven stakes races, including two Grade 1s. Knicks Go is the 6-5 morning-line favorite in the 2022 Pegasus World Cup odds.
Life Is Good is the 7-5 second choice in the nine-horse 2022 Pegasus World Cup lineup. Post time for the Pegasus World Cup 2022 is 5:34 p.m. ET. With a well accomplished field set to enter the starting gate on Saturday, you'll want to see what racing insider and Beyer Speed Figure maker Bob Weir has to say before making any Pegasus World Cup picks.
A Saratoga Springs-based racing insider and Beyer Speed Figure maker, Weir has studied the sequence and constructed his wagers in his analysis below. A two-time qualifier for the prestigious National Horseplayers Championship in Las Vegas, Weir has produced multiple five-figure days at the track over the years, including a $60,000 Pick 6 at Del Mar in 2014.
Last year he was on fire. He hit the exacta in the Sam F. Davis Stakes, Tampa Bay Derby and Peter Pan Stakes, the trifecta in the Risen Star Stakes, Blue Grass Stakes and Pennsylvania Derby and the superfecta in the Belmont Stakes, with the Tampa Bay score returning $1,414. Those were just some of his scores in 2021.
Now, he has handicapped the 2022 Pegasus World Cup field, made his picks and constructed his bets. You can only see them here
Top 2022 Pegasus World Cup predictions
One surprise: Weir is backing Sir Winston on his tickets even though the horse is a 12-1 long shot on the morning line. A six-year-old son of 1998 Breeders' Cup Classic champion Awesome Again, Sir Winston scored a career-defining victory when he won the 2019 Belmont Stakes at 10-1 odds. He then lost his next five races before going on an 11-month layoff.
He returned last summer at Woodbine, earning two wins and two seconds in four starts, including the Grade 3 Valedictory Stakes in his last race. "He came back last summer at Woodbine after almost one year off and showed he still has some life," Weir told SportsLine. Weir is using Sir Winston prominently on all of his 2022 Pegasus World Cup bets.
