Arrogate captured the inaugural $12 miilion Pegasus World Cup.

In recent days we've learned the two richest races in horse racing plan to become even wealthier. The Pegasus World Cup has upped its purse to a whopping $16 million, and the Dubai World Cup could still top that with its desire to reclaim the title of world's richest race.

In this week's The Friday Show, Scott Jagow and Ray Paulick discuss the implications of these purse increases for the sport. Plus, the Road to the Kentucky Derby is nearing its end, and it appears we may have one of the most wide open fields in recent memory. Their take on the standings so far and picks for this weekend's Arkansas Derby.

Enjoy the latest edition of The Friday Show.
