Miansai Designs the 2020 Pegasus World Cup Trophy

Since its inception in 2017, the Pegasus World Cup Invitational has become a not-to-miss event on the thoroughbred racing calendar. Acclaimed for its international and domestic talent and crowd, the anticipated race—presented by Runhappy at the Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Florida—is attended by locals, sports and culture enthusiasts, and celebrities.

Two days ago, The 2020 Pegasus World Cup Championship Invitational Series took place, with its top prize awarded to Mucho Gusto—owned by Michael Peterson, rode by Irad Ortiz Jr., and trained by Bob Baffert. In addition to a generous cash prize, special for the winner, as well, was a trophy designed by Miami-based jewelry brand Miansai.

“We are really excited to be part of such an iconic event and the collaboration felt both unique and true to our brand with all roots tying to Miami,” said the founder of Miansai, Michael Saiger. “To create the design for the trophies, we took inspiration from a traditional Pegasus horse and modernized it through Miansai’s lens with a Miami-authentic Art Deco sculptural design.”

Tapped to design the trophy in collaboration with The Stronach Group, Miansai created a unique gold-plated brass trophy featuring a marble bottom and a creatively modern Art Deco wing.

“Miansai—one of South Florida’s most forward-thinking jewelry and lifestyle brands—is on the cusp of style and innovation, making them the perfect design partner for the 2020 Pegasus World Cup Championship Invitational Series trophies,” said the executive vice president of entertainment at The Stronach Group, Jimmy Vargas. “The modern design that Michael Saiger created reflects The Stronach Group’s mission of modernizing the sport of thoroughbred horse racing.”

At the event, guests cheered on the contestants while sipping refreshing cocktails and enjoying curated experiences. And for the exceptional supporters, David Grutman‘s LIV Stretch Village welcomed them to a viewing suite that hosted Grammy Award-winning talents Nelly and T-Pain.
