Arrogate chases riches in Dubai

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

Arrogate has been win­ning one big race af­ter an­other. The 4-year-old now goes af­ter a big pile of money in the desert, run­ning in to­day’s $10 mil­lion Dubai World Cup.

Arrogate, trained by Bob Baf­fert, lost in his de­but 11 months ago but hasn’t lost since. He won the Breed­ers’ Cup Clas­sic and the in­au­gu­ral $12 mil­lion Pe­ga­sus World Cup this year to stretch his un­beaten streak to six.

In both those races, Arrogate de­feated Cal­i­for­nia Chrome, who won last year’s Dubai World Cup at Mey­dan Racecourse by five lengths de­spite jockey Vic­tor Espinoza hang­ing on to a loose sad­dle most of the way.

Un­der jockey Mike Smith, Arrogate has forged a win­ning com­bi­na­tion in his last three Group 1 races: Travers Stakes, Breed­ers’ Cup Clas­sic and Pe­ga­sus World Cup.

They drew the No. 9 post in the field of 14 in Dubai.
