Arrogate continues prep for rematch with California Chrome at Pegasus World Cup

Arrogate continues prep for rematch with California Chrome at Pegasus World CupBreeders' Cup Classic winner Arrogate stepped up his preparation for the Pegasus World Cup, and a mouthwatering rematch with California Chrome, with a racecourse workout at Santa Anita on Sunday. Eager to get some work into Arrogate ahead of the inaugural running of the $12 million Pegasus World Cup on Saturday January 28, trainer Bob Baffert sent the colt for a spin around Santa Anita having withdrawn him from an intended run in the San Pasqual Stakes last week because of a wet track.

The highest-rated Flat horse in the world completed six furlongs in 1:11.94.

After the gallop Baffert said: "It's good, I was happy. He got the work in and that was important. We got some nice, stiff work into him."

Arrogate's finest hour came when overhauling California Chrome late on in the Breeders' Cup Classic in November and Baffert believes that the horse is at his most effective when given a target to chase. "He has an idle tendency - he likes to chase something. He has a tremendous drive. His stride is his biggest weapon," the trainer added.
