Watch Pegasus World Cup live stream: race preview
Frankie Dettori's long goodbye begins with the first major flat event of the year, the 1-and-1/8-mile Pegasus World Cup at Gulfstream Park. The legendary 52-year-old jockey has never won the Grade I race in three previous attempts, and he may leave disappointed again, with Cyberknife the hot favorite in his own Hallandale Beach swansong.
Retirement beckons for the four-year-old, who's set to make his final career start in the $3 million event. Cyberknife won two Grade 1 races at this distance last year, and, though he's never competed at Gulfstream Park before, if ever there was a recipe for success, it's surely this. Trainer Brad Cox won the Pegasus World Cup with Knicks Go three years ago, and two years before that, jockey Florent Geroux rode Cyberknife's sire Gun Runner to victory.
Skippylongstocking, who won the prep race, is shaping up as one of the main challengers to keep eyes on, while history dictates that you can't ignore Defunded, this year's entry from two-time Pegasus World Cup-winner Bob Baffert.
Another runner garnering interest is Proxy, who won his first Grade 1 race in his most recent start, and is being ridden by Joel Rosario, who tasted success here with the aforementioned Knicks Go. White Abarrio, meanwhile, is the most fancied of Saffie Joseph Jr.'s three entries. Take a look at the full list of 2023 Pegasus World Cup runners and riders below.
