The Pegasus World Cup Invitational will start the year 2020 with a bang as it will offer another action-packed horse racing show in two weeks. Today’s edition of the Pegasus World Cup will come in its 4th season, settling the same home at Gulfstream Park, Florida. It will take place on January 25, 2020, which is the fourth Saturday of the month.
This horse racing event will feature the strongest horse racers around the world. Also, do know that the entries allowed to this event are via invitation. So, expect a thrilling and exciting racing competition. Stronach Group, which is the owner of the Pegasus World Cup, has chosen twelve entries to compete with five reserves.
The Journey of Maximum Security
Out of the twelve invitees that Stronach released in December last year, Maximum Security has the loudest rumor to create an epic victory this year. He joins the list for the strongest Pegasus World Cup betting odds to saddle in Gulfstream Park along with Omaha Beach, Seeking the Soul, and Gift Box.
Maximum Security is a thoroughbred racer who started his career in 2016. He has a very colorful start-up by the time he takes challenge match-ups before taking big races. He is the sire of New Year’s Day, and a colt bred owned by Gary and Mary West. He is trained by Jason Servis, who tallies overall earnings of $1, 801, 900 in his entire racing career.
It was not an excellent finish for Maximum Security last year as he has to face the biggest failure in his entire racing career. It is why Stronach has given him a chance to partake in the 2020 Pegasus World Cup to showcase his real skills. He was the winner for the 2019 Kentucky Derby, but was disqualified right after due to “bumping at the pole” incident.
His trainer, Jason Servis, then decides not to partake in the Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes that completes the U.S. Triple Crown Series. He rested and prepared Maximum Security for a big comeback. Everyone was under the impression that he’ll bounce back in Kentucky this year, and surprisingly, Maximum Security is now in the 2020 Pegasus World Cup invitees.
As he tops the list for the best odds value to win the Pegasus World Cup this year, Maximum Security might face a lot of obstacles before bringing home the crown. As mentioned above, he will fight head to head with the best racers in the world, including Omaha Beach, Gift Box, and Seeking the Soul, which had also established their racing backgrounds.
So, what qualities does Maximum Security hold to become the real Pegasus World Cup winner? Does his racing records convince you to bet for him and earn big? Let’s get to know some of Maximum Security’s achievements in his entire career and determine whether he can take home the Pegasus crown or not.
Achievements and Recognitions
Although last year was a doomsday for Maximum Security when he got disqualified in the Kentucky Derby, he was victorious and triumphant in other major horse racing competitions. He took the crown in the 2019 Florida Derby. Aside from that, he also won the Bold Ruler Handicap (2019), Cigar Mile (2019), and Haskell Invitational (2019).
These achievements made his racing records better than winning the Kentucky Derby. His trainer Jason Servis has also specified that Maximum Security is one of the toughest horses to bet in today’s generation. As he joined the 2020 Pegasus World Cup, surely he will place and beat other top contenders, Servis added.
Strengths and Abilities
One of the major advantages of Maximum Security that might help him to win the 2020 Pegasus World Cup crown is his breed and sire. New Year’s Day was a real superstar during his days, and Maximum Security carries the same trait.
Aside from that, Servis also managed Maximum Security to look great in his post-positions, running distance tactics, and his position before running. This horse racer has also generated one of the highest odds to win. It’s the reason why he might end up taking the crown for Pegasus this year. Lastly, Luis Saez, a legendary horse racing jockey, might ride Maximum Security to clinch the pot prize.
The 2020 Pegasus World Cup features horse racers around the world that showcases the best saddling skills. It is why Maximum Security is currently on the highest bid to win for the said crown. It is his second time running in Pegasus, and this year, fans and bettors expect him to bag an excellent winning record.
So, as we draw near to the 2020 Pegasus World Cup, can Maximum Security maximize an impressive stretch to leave other contenders behind him? It’s for you to decide.
