Pegasus World Cup Turf

I know we were all excited when they announced this race, but just thinking. Are we seriously expecting a bunch of international superstars to want to come run on Gulfstream’s “dirf” course, with it’s crazy tight turns and sand spraying out behind them? Becuase … um … no. Gulfstream is one of the last tracks I’d pick to hold an international turf championship. I think it’s perfectly fine for the dirt race, but yikes about that turf … 

I was more cautiously optimistic about this for that reason. Sounds awesome on paper. In reality? We’ll see what happens I guess
