Arrogate Confirmed For Dubai World Cup
The world's highest rated racehorse Arrogate is set to make his next run in the US$10 million Gr1 Dubai World Cup at Meydan racecourse on 25 March, reports Blood Horse. "I just got the call and we've got the green light to send him to Dubai as long as he's doing well," trainer Bob Baffert said. "(The decision) came down from Prince Khalid (Abdullah)." The news of the Pegasus World Cup winner's next scheduled start came after he worked over one mile in 1:38 2/5 at Santa Anita Park on Monday. "He looked great. I'm really happy the way he's come out of that race (teh Pegasus)," said Baffert. "He hasn't regressed or anything, he looked fantastic. He's enjoying himself, and he did it the right way. I'm really happy with the way he's going. He's just holding his form very well." The Juddmonte Farms-owned Arrogate will become the richest North American racehorse of all time if he wins the Dubai World Cup, surpassing the US$14,746,218 earned by California Chrome.
