Eyes on January as HorseTourneys Flo-Cal Faceoff, Tourney Triple, and Pegasus World Cup Betting Championship Headline Huge Start to 2021

With the conclusion of Breeders’ Cup Weekend at HorseTourneys, players with their eyes on huge cash prize pools will be turning to January and the start of the Jan. 9-10 Flo-Cal Faceoff, Round 1 of the 2021 Tourney Triple, and the Jan. 23 Pegasus World Cup Betting Championship.

The 2021 Breeders’ Cup Weekend was one of the biggest weekends ever at HorseTourneys. Thousands of players competed for their share of a combined prize pool of over $300,000. Come the new year, that amount is primed to be reached twice in two weeks, as HorseTourneys preps for a January absolutely stuffed with tournament opportunities.

The HorseTourneys Flo-Cal Faceoff is a two-day tourney in which contestants make a mythical $2.00 win and place selection on every race of the Gulfstream and Santa Anita cards on both Saturday and Sunday. It’s a $150,000 Guaranteed event, but in 2020, the winner of this event took home $88,000 from a cash pool of $225,000. This year, we expect it to be even bigger.

But there’s an even bigger opportunity that comes with the Flo-Cal Faceoff, the 2021 Tourney Triple.

Starting with the Flo-Cal Faceoff, the Tourney Triple is a special new points-paying handicapping series that will see the best horseplayers in the country take on three of the year’s biggest events – The Flo-Cal Faceoff, Players Championship, and the Spa & Surf Showdown.

While the Players Championship is brand new for this year, in 2020 the combined cash pool for the Flo-Cal Faceoff and Spa & Surf Showdown reached a staggering $869,000. You need a pretty big championship purse to match that kind of per-tournament payout – and the Tourney Triple brings it.

Win any two legs of the 2021 Tourney Triple and you’ll earn a $1,000,000 bonus. Sweep the series, and you’ll go home $2,000,000 richer.

But that’s not the only big-money championship kicking off in January, the Pegasus World Cup Betting Championship takes place just two weeks later on Jan. 23, 2021.

Billed as the most player friendly handicapping contest of the year, the Pegasus sent its top 10 handicapping finishers home with nearly $300,000 between them in 2020. Making things even sweeter for the top finishers, the tournament will also offer five NHC Entry Packages.

A new consideration for this year, the Pegasus will allow online play via Xpressbet. That means you don’t need to be on-site anymore in order to fully participate in the opportunities offered. Though in-person options at Gulfstream, the host venue, are still being discussed.

Weekly Qualifiers for the Flo-Cal Faceoff and the Pegasus World Cup Betting Championship are already in full swing at These qualifiers also have Feeders which run almost daily. Just head to the site and sort by “Featured” for more info and details on how to enter.

We wish everyone the best of luck!
