Description: Arrogate (KY) GR/RO, C, foaled April 11, 2013 (Unbridled's Song - Bubbler, by Distorted Humor) romps to victory in the 9 furlong $12 million Grade I Pegasus World Cup at Gulfstream Park January 28, 2017. Jockey Mike Smith and Arrogate broke smartly from the number one post and set out after the pacesetter Noble Bird. Arrogate was flanked by Neolithic and California Chrome was caught wide as expected around the first turn. California Chrome broke from post 12 and there was a short run to the first turn. Chrome got into position to run fourth alongside Arrogate as they raced up the back stretch. Neolithic put pressure on Noble Bird as they headed into the far turn and Arrogate angled to the outside as he gained on the leaders. California Chrome did not go with him. Noble Bird backed out of it and Arrogate caught Neolithic nearing the quarter pole and won as he pleased by 4 3/4 lenghts over Shaman Ghost. It was another 3 1/2 lengths to Neolithic in 3rd. Arrogate has reeled off 6 straight victories including the 2016 Grade I Breeders Cup Classic and the Grade I Travers Stakes. Arrogate earned an Eclipse Award for Champion Three Year Old Male of 2016 and he was number one in the 2016 Longines World's Best Racehorse Rankings. Arrogate is 6-0-1 from 7 starts and he has earned $11,084,600 for his owners at Juddmonte Farms. He was bred by Clearsky Farms and he is being trained by Bob Baffert.
