This weekend features the richest race in horse racing history: the Pegasus World Cup (G1). Keen Ice, California Chrome, Arrogate, and nine other horses will go a mile and an eighth for a purse of $12,000,000.
And, as we so often do for the biggest races of the year, Picks and Ponderings takes it on, point/counterpoint. Paul Mazur and I go horse-by-horse to separate the contenders, the exotic plays, and the pretenders. We pull no punches, and we let the snark flow.
