As previously written about here, the Pegasus World Cup Championship is near, and Thoroughbred race fans are excited.
It will take place Saturday, January 23rd, 2021, at Gulfstream Park.
However, because of the ongoing pandemic, the event will be implementing strict protocols in terms of social distancing and health guidelines to avoid having an outbreak of COVID-19 cases during the event.
This will be applied to all members, competitors, and spectators of the event.
The upcoming Pegasus World Cup races also feature a medication-free format applied to Pegasus World Cup Invitational and Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational.
The Stronach Group which oversees the racing at Gulfstream (as well as Laurel, Santa Anita, and Golden Gate) is making a concerted effort to keep the horses, as well as the two legged participants healthy and safe.
Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the group has created and implemented health guidelines and safety protocols to protect its members and the public from said pandemic.
The Pegasus World Cup 2021 will be implementing strict health and safety guidelines for the events which apply to both riders and spectators.
Attendance has been reduced 20% this year which allows the space for the guests to adhere to the social distancing guidelines.
They’ve also installed thermal sensing cameras in both entrances and exits to continually check the temperature of the attendees.
Face masks are also an essential requirement in order to enter the premises of the event.
Not only that, but they are also continually double-checking the cleanliness and sanitization of all public places, as well as introducing cashless wagering to avoid unnecessary skin contact.
Stop back on Friday when the Daily Racing Blog will take a look at the three million dollar Pegasus World Cup, and see if we can’t find a Value play in that field.
