Arrogate could work Sunday or Monday for Pegasus World Cup

Arrogate could work Sunday or Monday for Pegasus World CupBreeders’ Cup Classic winner Arrogate, a leading contender for Horse of the Year along with arch-rival California Chrome, likely will work on Santa Anita’s main track “Sunday or Monday” as he prepares for a widely anticipated rematch with the popular California-bred in the $12 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational at Gulfstream Park on Jan. 28. “The horse is doing good,” said Bob Baffert, who trains Arrogate for Juddmonte Farms. “Everything looks positive.”
Arrogate had been entered in the San Pasqual Stakes on Jan. 1 as a prep for the Pegasus, but a wet track caused Baffert to scratch the four-year-old gray son of Unbridled’s Song. Arrogate’s most recent workout came before last Sunday’s first race, when he went six furlongs in 1:11.80 under Martin Garcia.
California Chrome, the 2014 Horse of the Year who was overtaken in deep stretch to fall a half-length short in the Classic, has been in Florida since Jan. 6 to prepare for the inaugural running of the Pegasus at 1 1/8 miles.
Trainer Art Sherman plans to work California Chrome five furlongs at Gulfstream tomorrow.
The Horse of the Year will be announced Jan. 21 at Gulfstream Park, along with other Eclipse Award winners.
