Pegasus World Cup Winners

The inaugural Pegasus World Cup delivered more star power than anyone could have imagined, with California Chrome and Arrogate facing off after their brilliant 1-2 finish in the 2016 Breeders' Cup Classic. The 2018 Pegasus World Cup provided just as much star power, with Gun Runner aiming for his 5th straight victory right before retiring. Facing Gun Runner was West Coast, the hero of the Travers Stakes and Pennsylvania Derby, who had just finished second to Gun Runner in the Breeders' Cup.
