Gunnevera Steps Up Training For Pegasus World Cup

Gunnevera stepped up his training for the $16 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational (G1) at Gulfstream Park Jan. 27 during a five-furlong breeze at Gulfstream Park West.

Margoth’s 3-year-old son of Dialed In was timed in 1:00.80, the third-fastest clocking recorded at the distance.  Gunnevera ran outside stablemate Cometin into the stretch before drawing clear by several lengths. Jesus Rios was aboard for the work, subbing for jockey Edgard Zayas, who rode at Tampa Bay Downs Saturday.

“It was a very nice workout and he galloped out very good,” trainer Antonio Sano said. “I’m very happy and proud of my horse.”
