HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. (AP) — City of Light has won the $9 million Pegasus World Cup dirt race, running away from Breeders’ Cup Classic champion Accelerate for an emphatic victory in the final race before retirement for both horses.


WHY BE AN AFFILIATE WHEN YOU CAN GET 100%?  JUST PAY $5 PER PLAYER

City of Light and Accelerate were virtually neck-and-neck on the lead as the 12-horse field turned for home on a rainsoaked track and under a very dark, stormy sky. But Accelerate didn’t fire, and City of Light under jockey Javier Castellano simply took off.

Seeking the Soul got up for second. Accelerate wound up third.

City of Light finished with six wins in 11 career starts, with earnings of just under $5.7 million.
