Longines World’s Best Racehorse and Pegasus World Cup Champion Arrogate made another step toward his expected start in the Mar. 28 Dubai World Cup Sunday morning, breezing seven furlongs at Santa Anita under regular work rider Martin Garcia. According to bloodhorse.com, the 4-year-old son of Unbridled’s Song was clocked in 1:24 for the distance, and galloped out to a mile in 1:38.
“He worked like he usually does,” said trainer Bob Baffert. “He worked great again. He (galloped) out a mile. I liked what I saw. We’re right on course for Dubai.”

In just seven career starts, the Juddmonte-owned colt has won six times and earned more than $ 11 million. A win at the Meydan Racecourse would take Arrogate past current North American record-holder for career earnings, California Chrome.
Also on Sunday, Baffert breezed Triple Crown contender Mastery: the son of Candy Ride was clocked in 1:12 3/5 for six furlongs. The G1 CashCall Futurity winner is scheduled to make his 2017 debut in next Saturday’s G2 San Felipe.
