View Full Version : Increasing the run up for the Pegasus? Would an extra 30 to 60 feet be more fair?

Nope, bad idea. Gulfstream already plays too many games with run up. Also, I don't care about track records but many do. This would give the race an unfair advantage over others previously run at the distance. Just run the damn race, 30 or 60 feet isn't going to matter anyway.

I'd want it to be 10 furlongs, but that would mean less horses probably.

They have never run the distance so I assume they can't, but could be wrong. They can and have run 1 3/16 miles.

The 1999 Breeders Cup Classic at GP was run at 10 furlongs.

Although perhaps theyíve reconfigured the track since then?

30 or 60 - they are going to mis-time it any ways, so stop playing around.

I am sure they can run 10 furlongs and start at the 1/8th pole if they want to.

But 1 3/16 miles would do the trick- 9 furlongs is too short a run into the first turn for a big field.

Can you believe its $75 dollars for a general admission ticket at Gulfstream Park for this race?

For the 2017 Florida Derby it was free admission and I got a nice seat in the Simulcast lounge for $10 or 20 dollars.

For the 2017 Kentucky Derby Day, and Breeders Cup Day @ Gulfstream I paid $60.00 a head for 2 for a table of 4 seats @ Ten Palms on the Glass! And it included the buffet.

That same table for this Pegasus race is $4000! $1000 a seat and you have to buy all 4.

The Simulcast seats are $100 a pop!

$750 for a seat near the Paddock.

Grandstand is $180 on the turn, $225 on the stretch.

Its crazy town prices!

I have to believe that if they find 10,000 people to attend they will be lucky.

If they fill the place up the on-track handle might be enormous.

Its $250 to sit at the bar!

Forget the handle, they might pull in 2 million at the Door!

Can we look at all the Classics and BC races where you will drop a fortune to sit in a nice seat with a decent view on those special race days and then compare the purses on those days with the Pegasus Days purses, also GP is a smaller venue and practically every seat is a good one. The day is priced right they want the celebrities to show up and it is a showcase event. It sold out last year as the match race between Arrogate and Chrome was the draw now this year they have made Gun Runner the huge favorite with 11 others trying to get at least 4th place(break even point)great event for an otherwise slow time of year. Nicely done by the Stronach Group.

Comparing Pegasus day to BC day is really a non starter, and Pegasus day is more expensive in general. They can do what they want. It is his race track, though Belinda is probably calling the shots now. I'm just stating the obvious...they don't want regular Joes there.

Pegasuus day is more expensive on the bottom end, because Gulfstream Park East is so small.

But the top level tickets for the BC- turf clubs / millionaire's row- can get quite expensive.

30-60 feet for the run up has been rules out by Franky.
But he will increase the parking by $30-$60 instead.

If you come early, you can get breakfast that day.
Where else can you get a 3 minute egg in a minute and 40 seconds?

Watchmaker: Post-position draw paramount in Pegasus

http://www.drf.com/news/watchmaker-post-position-draw-paramount-pegasus

Excerpt:

Thatís why I suggested that what happens at the Pegasus draw could, just for starters, change the way the race is bet. I canít envision any scenario where Gun Runner isnít strongly favored. But if Gun Runner draws a reasonably good post, I think heís as big a cinch to be an odds-on favorite as he is to be named Horse of the Year. And good luck beating him. But if Gun Runner draws, say, post 10 or wider, I suspect his price will be higher than even-money, and he will suddenly become a vulnerable favorite.

Makes you wonder if post positions should ever have that kind of impact.

Tracks should schedule races at distances that don't create this sort of thing. But horsemen, for the most part, bring it on themselves. They run ridiculous 1m 1/16 races at Laurel which start almost on the turn because trainers don't want to run 9f.

They have actually run 14-horse fields at 1 1/16 miles at Gulfstream you know.

You can get away with that when you have the second longest turns in North America - 1,742 feet, behind only Belmont Park's 2,020 feet.

As for cj's question: That happens all the time, when horses get 1% of the purse for finishing (usually) 6th or worse when the cost of nominating, entering and starting the horse is 1.1%, and sometimes a great deal more.

You know how I have always felt about this: Instead, it should be $1,150,000 to 4th, $1,050,000 to 5th, $950,000 to 6th, $850,000 to 7th, $750,000 to 8th, $650,000 to 9th, $550,000 to 10th, $450,000 to 11th and $350,000 to 12th. Even with that the guarantee is still $100,000 higher than it was last year - and the fourth and fifth-place owners come out ahead, instead of only the first two coming out ahead and the third-place owner breaking even, as was the case last year.

OK, I can buy that, but they couldn't even fill the field charging 250k to enter. They had to "buy" three slots. If you make it harder to get the money back it would have been even worse.

The race is certainly better than the Donn, which had been tailing off. I think it is silly how they make up a purse number that simply isn't true, but otherwise, why not? It is a good bridge between the Classic and Dubai and these same horses wouldn't be running for in the old Donn.

To me, it's not my money so who cares if they want to throw it around? Frank's wasted money on a lot of sillier things.

Exactly. Sure are a lot of people fussing even though it's not costing them a dime.

For some reason, they never thought it a problem that a man who takes the wealth of a country as his own puts up a huge pot, but it's all *itch and moan when we have to be more creative in how we fund such a race.

Fager Fan,

Why would I want to waste more than a couple of bucks on Frank's Faulty Folly? The PAYgasus sham.

Maybe I'll bet $10 for fun on Sharp Azteca to see if Navarro is able to say FU to the racing establishment.

I'll wait till Sunday, put a couple hundred in on the mandatory distribution of the Rainbow 6 and scoop up all that dumb-peoples money that's been accumulating for months?

None of it, not even 20-cents of it mine.

The other Stronach gimmick to take money out of circulation daily. Thanks Frank for suckering so many fools into discarding their money every day.

I've already done it twice in the last 5 years, once for 4K and once for 12K. Never have I spent more than $256. Spent $160 for the 12K.

Otherwise, Gulfstream sucks for too many reasons to bother repeating.

Hope you enjoy yourself and contribute to my paydays.

You sound like someone who wants Navarro to say FU. Which tells me all I need about you.

You've got plenty of other tracks to play, so go play 'em. No one cares.

Let me ask a dumb question.....

They have a second finishline for 8.5 furlong races.
Why no start the 9.0 furlong races at that point, and end them there?

Same stretch as the 8,5 and a fair start for the 9.0??

I am assuming these are the two finish lines?

Probably silly, but I'd guess Trakus was never set up for that configuration.

Yeah, probably.
I know we used to refuse customer orders for certain things because we didn't have 24 inch calipers! :coffee:

I think that's a smart question.

The PAYgasus is all smoke and mirrors.

A great con job by TSG.

Gulfstream is their biggest shyster operation going.

Like they say, a sucker is born every minute. Plenty to be taken advantage of by people like Frank.

They even pay people off with freebies and perks to take their side and promote what the're doing. It's standard operating procedure.Jeez man...let it go already...the jealousy is not pretty.
