I couldn't see any purse distribution in that link.
It doesn't allow me to copy and paste the information. I just clicked on the link and the info came up. I got it off Equibase. Looked up Arrogate's win and clicked on the info re his Pegasus win.

Nine Pegasus Slots Sold by Friday Deadline
...The nine horses that have secured spots are: Gun Runner (Candy Ride {Arg}), West Coast (Flatter), Toast of New York (Thewayyouare), Gunnevera (Dialed In), War Story (Northern Afleet), Collected (City Zip), Stellar Wind (Curlin) and Seeking the Soul (Perfect Soul). The ninth spot was purchased earlier by Frank Stronach’s Adena Springs Farm, which has yet to determine what horse it will use to fill the slot.

The biggest omission from the list was that of GI Breeders’ Cup Distaff winner Forever Unbridled (Unbridled’s Song), who is owned by Charles Fipke. Fipke had said he was interested in running his mare in the race, but instead bought a slot for Seeking the Soul. Seeking the Soul is coming off a win in the GI Clark H. Dallas Stewart trains both horses.

“This was pretty much Mr. Fipke’s decision,” Stewart said. “We’re running Seeking the Soul because we think we have a really live chance with him. Forever Unbridled has already established her resume. She’s a made woman. I know Gun Runner is the horse to beat, but our horse is coming off a big win and we really think he has a good shot.”

Stewart said Forever Unbridled is doing “great” and will be pointed for a “Grade I campaign.” He mentioned the GI Apple Blossom at Oaklawn as one race that would possibly be on her schedule....

Dallas Stewart said Forever Unbridled, the Breeders’ Cup Distaff winner who was under Pegasus consideration, won’t start in the race. Forever Unbridled worked on Dec. 11, but Stewart said he has no plans to work the mare in coming days, and that he was slowing down her training right now. Stewart said plans call for Forever Unbridled to race again in 2018.

Stronach's own royally-bred Singing Bullet (Hard Spun x Life At Ten) runs in an optional claimer at Gulfstream tomorrow. He may run in the Pegasus if he turns in a good effort per trainer Dale Romans:
Singing Bullet enters his 3-year-old finale off a 3 1/4-length optional-claiming victory over Conquest Windycity going a mile last month at Churchill Downs, for which he earned a career-best 95 Beyer Speed Figure.

As for the Pegasus World Cup, Romans said a good performance here Friday could earn Singing Bullet a slot in the event on Jan. 27.

“I know he doesn’t have the credentials of a lot of those horses who’ll be in the race, but we’re a horse going up and maybe we can catch some of the others going down,” Romans said. “Strange things can happen in a race like that, as we know.”

Just watched tape of Sharp Azteca work had him from the 1/2 in 22.20, 46.12 out 5/8's in 58.75 didn't pull up until he was back past the half-mile pole again. Very impressive.

I was curious to see how he did, so I checked the Gulfstream results. He finished 4th, so I doubt that The Pegasus is in his future. :P

Add Giant Expectations to the field. TVG just announced that his connections have entered into an agreement with the Stronach Group. Just two openings left.

Sharp Azteca is a beast. Not sure he's a 9f beast, but if he goes, Gun Runner is going to have some company. . .

Can he carry his talent that far? It's hard to say, but being by Freud with Saint Liam and Conquistador Cielo on the bottom certainly can't hurt.
