Mexico’s undefeated Triple Crown winner Kukulkan (Mex) (Point Determined), last seen winning the $300,000 Clasico del Caribe Dec. 8 at Gulfstream Park, will have the services of international champion jockey Frankie Dettori Jan. 26 when he goes to post in the $9-million GI Pegasus World Cup Invitational, the richest race in North America.

“He’s really interested to ride,” trainer Fausto Gutierrez said. “He will be arriving that week [of Pegasus].”

Kukulkan is scheduled to breeze twice in Mexico before leaving Jan. 17 for Gulfstream.
