Pegasus falls: Golden Horse statue demolished


AFTER 10 years of standing guard at the door of the Golden Horse Casino, the massive statue of the horse Pegasus is being demo­lished.

Casino marketing manager Prabashni Reddy said that at 14 meters high, this Pegasus was one of biggest horse statues in the world. She said the sta­tue was being removed due to internal structural damage.

General manager of the casino, Patrick Beney said a far more “beautiful, glamorous look and feel for the entrance feature will replace the Pegasus which will be revealed shortly.”

The new design, which encompasses a fountain will be unveiled in September.
