Arrogate Wins Gr1 Dubai World Cup

Monday, 27th March 2017

At Meydan racecourse in Dubai, deceased US sire & former Arrowfield shuttler Unbridled's Song (Unbridled-Trolley Song, by Caro) celebrated an elite success when 4YO entire Arrogate (Unbridled's Song-Bubbler, by Distorted Humor) scored an exceptional 2.25 length win for trainer Bob Baffert in the US$10 million Gr1 Dubai World Cup (10 furlongs) for 3YO+, over fellow 4YO US-bred entires Gun Runner (Candy Ride-Quiet Giant, by Giant's Causeway) & Neolithic (Harlan's Holiday-Swingit, Victory Gallop). Despite being the last horse to leave the gates, Arrogate showed why he was last year crowned the World's Best Racehorse with a stunning last-to-first victory that prompted trainer Bob Baffert to label him the best horse he had ever seen. "I thought then [after he was slow to start], 'If he wins this race, he's the most incredible horse I've ever seen,'" Baffert told Blood Horse. "If anybody wasn't super impressed with that, they just don't like horse racing. I still can't believe he won the race." The Juddmonte Farms-owned Arrogate advanced his record to 7 wins from 8 starts for career earnings of US$17,084,600 surpassing California Chrome to become the richest North American thoroughbred of all time.
