What's this thing look like in person?

It's incredibly lifelike. True, Pegasus does look a little 'roided out (see the bulging muscles just below his mighty wings), but this is Florida, so, OK.(Little known fact: At the base of the statue is a poem that reads "Give me your retirees, your CAW teams, your huddled masses who aren't too fussy about adhering to stated post times, yearning to get in for free".)

It's so impressive that sometimes I just stand there all day, staring in slack-jawed amazement, and never make it into the track. On those rare days when I am able to pull myself away, Pegasus is very good for - once the last race is over - helping me remember where I parked.

If you like equine statuary, you may want to plan a side trip to nearby Hialeah City, where there is a nice statue of Citation. He's only regular horse-sized, but they've also got a nice enough (if a bit dilapidated) OTB, and a racetrack for flamingos with the best sight lines this side of Aqueduct. But the flamingos just hang out in the infield, and never race each other, which I find kind of sad.
