Gulfstream Officially Lowers Time Of Pegasus World Cup After Review

Arrogate's next start, following victory in January's Pegasus World Cup, comes in Dubai Saturday

Gulfstream Park has changed the official finish time of the Grade 1 Pegasus World Cup following an investigation by its official timing company, Trakus. TimeFormUS officially revised the time and speed figure for the race earlier this week after clockers voiced skepticism over the final time.

The amended time for Arrogate's victory is now 1:46.83 for the 1 1/8-mile contest, a reduction of .78 seconds. That time makes the colt's performance a record for the distance at Gulfstream, beating Lea's previous record of 1:46.86 in the Donn.

Arrogate's Beyer speed figure was also adjusted, based on suspicions the finish time was actually quicker than announced after the race.

    What is the new beyer?

    • Arrogate

      119. For gods sake Andy, just give him the 120.

      • Zanytactics

        Andy and his staff are clueless. BSFs is the most overrated handicapping tool in TB racing.

      • Jake Martens

        Lol. Timeform bump to 140?

        • Jake Martens

          139 I see. Why not 140 lol

    It’s good that the time has been corrected, of course. It’s not good that something as fundamental as race time is a chronic problem at Gulf (and other tracks, as well) given the technological resources readily available. Trakus is a nice innovation the way a jet plane is a nice innovation. The last thing you want to see is Snoopy in a leather helmet at the controls. :)

  • Lauren Woolcott

    Will the races in the undercard be reviewed too?

    • Minneola

      That, is not only a very good question but an essential one. Hope that someone can provide us with an accurate answer.

  • Meydan Rocks

    They will pull one out of the bag and make this horse race at 5. That’s my 2018 bet.

    • Bev

      Would be great if Arrogate races next year as a five year old. ZOOOOOOOOOOOOOM

      • Meydan Rocks

        This is one bet I’d be glad to plunk down money for in Vegas. I’m betting that he will race at 5.

  • Bev

    why are they off to begin with?? AND have always been off? gee, that’s nice to know.

  • Tom Davis

    Beyer Speed Figures are useless. But we serious handicappers love them to be published because others will use them and will help the price of our horses.
