The 2024 Pegasus World Cup, a spectacle synonymous with speed, strategy, and equine prowess, is set to return in January with a new layer of indulgence added to its vibrant atmosphere. The elite racing event is proud to announce its partnership with Baccarat, a name renowned for its nearly 260-year lineage of luxury, excellence, and an embodiment of the French joie de vivre. This year, the event unveils a new novelty – the Baccarat Garden at Carousel Club, an exclusive enclave designed to offer race-goers a unique viewpoint and experience.
This refined setting infuses the thrill of horse racing with the sophistication of a private club, complete with bespoke cocktails served in elegant Baccarat glassware, high-end culinary concepts by Groot Hospitality, and an unparalleled view of performances.
The Trophy: A Magnificent Work of Art
The Pegasus World Cup trophy is considered by many a magnificent work of art that encapsulates the grandeur and elegance of the event. Crafted by the master artisans of Baccarat, the trophy boasts the brand’s iconic clear crystal, known for its stunning clarity and brilliance.
The design is a sublime representation of the powerful Pegasus, with its wings majestically spread, symbolizing the flight towards victory. The intricate detailing and uncompromising craftsmanship on display serve as a testament to Baccarat’s renowned legacy and the prestigious stature of the Pegasus World Cup. Each trophy is individually numbered, further adding to its exclusivity, and serves as a cherished memento for the triumphant victor, a symbol of their triumph in one of the greatest horse racing events.
