ARROGATE HAS LOOK OF SPECIAL COLT AS HE TAKES $58,000 SANTA ANITA ALLOWANCE FEATURE BY 5¼ LENGTHS UNDER BEJARANO
Juddmonte Farms' Arrogate
ARCADIA, Calif. (June 24, 2016)–Juddmonte Farms’ Arrogate had the look of something special in winning Friday’s $58,000 Santa Anita allowance feature by 5 ¼ lengths under Rafael Bejarano. Trained by Bob Baffert, the $560,000 Keeneland September yearling purchase was hustled from his rail post and made every pole a winning one en route to getting a mile and a sixteenth in a rapid 1:41.14.
"He's made a lot of progress," said Baffert of his lightly raced budding star. "He had some shins, so we stopped on him and the race at Los Al (a third place finish in his debut, a maiden special weight at six furlongs on April 17) just didn't work out. Today, he didn't get rattled, in the paddock or at the gate."
