Pegasus World Cup: Todd Pletcher is a Chance

The Pegasus Cup is coming and everyone is focused on a 2 horse race, Arrogate Vs California Chrome, but I will be having an bet Each Way (Win Place Show for the Americans) the two Todd Pletcher starters Neolithic and Keen Ice.

I have seen both of these race and Neolithic looks the business, Keen Ice can not be dismissed he has faced and beaten champions like American Pharoah, and he has raced against California Chrome and Arrogate before.

Both of these horses have a huge advantage, the track and the trainer, Todd Pletcher is on fire at the moment especially in the big races, he is the King of Gulfstream Park.

Keen Ice

If Arrogate and California Chrome lead the race at speed, Keen Ice is a HUGE chance, take a look at Keen Ice beating American Pharaoh and Frosted.

You can forget the last start of Keen Ice, he looked heavy prior to the race but I am sure Pletcher will have him ready for the Pegasus Cup.

Keen Ice ran a distant third to Arrogate and California Chrome in the Breeders Cup but beat home some handy horses, if the first half mile is run at a fast pace, Keen Ice will be there at the finish.

Neolithic

Neolithic walked home last start at Gulfstream Park in reasonable time but under no pressure, this is another horse that will be suited by a by a fast early pace, he is in form and we have not seen the best of him yet.
