Longines World’s Best Racehorse Arrogate was back on the work tab at Santa Anita on Tuesday morning, reports drf.com, breezing three furlongs for his first timed exercise since the Dubai World Cup. Under exercise rider Dana Barnes, the 4-year-old son of Unbridled’s Song clicked off 12-second eighths like clockwork in preparation for an upcoming start during the summer meeting at Del Mar.
“He just went 36, out in 49, just did it easy,” said trainer Bob Baffert. “(Barnes) did a great job; he was pretty fired up at the barn. She had her hands full.”
The Juddmonte-owned superstar is under consideration for either the G2 San Diego Handicap on July 22, or Baffert may decide train him up to the G1 TVG Pacific Classic on Aug. 19. With more than $ 17 million in earnings, the four-time Grade 1 winner is the richest North American racehorse in history, with more to come as connections point to the year-end goal of another Breeders’ Cup Classic victory.
