Race timing: CLASSIC, an electron beam is activated about 5 seconds before the first horse breaks that beam AT specific places on the track and the TIME at that point is a fractional measure of the PACE of the RACE. Accurate and exacting laid out with care upon installation of the entire set up. TRAKUS: each animal carries a transmitter in the saddle cloth (even though classic placing makes the tip of the nose the measure of a horse). The entire infield has a circuitry of sensors (that has to be re-set periodically..ours never has been) with sensor poles (about 8 feet tall along the inner rail equally distributed around the track) FUNNY if you GO to the Trakus site they explicitly say "We are not a timing system." These sensors are subject to radio waves that bounce off near placed buildings and objects in the infield. Once the RAW data (various velocity measurements) comes back, it goes to BOSTON, before it is relayed back to the specific track from which it was gleaned. ANOTHER source of error. UNLIKE teletimer which utilizes a SOLID standard (electronic sensor) these simply measure velocity at the point the want it to. If that measure point is during a check or move sideways by being forced out BOOM another error introduced, They are checking velocities not fractional times over distances run...Like I said errors increase the further a horse is behind the pace setter. Velocity measured this way has NO VECTOR, whereas teletimer in unidirectional and without the introduction of ground lost which is a theoretical addition anyway. HORSES velocity SLOWS as each fraction goes by. How can the same system measure accurately a velocity of 58 fps at the start and do as well at 52 fps near the end when the REGULAR timer just has time between r fractions of the PACE of the RACE?
This is a very nice Horse and I have been keeping a close eye on him. Hope he stays sound and continue to improve towards Derby day !!!
Makes me scratch my head how people are jumping to think that arrogate is the fastest horse of all time. Do people not know their history? Fager, bid, slew, secretariat, ruffian. List goes on and on. Shoot arrogate may not have even been able to beat the dude in the 2014 big cap when he ran a 1:58. I understand the horse is special, I'm a huge fan and the sport is blessed to have him. But let's keep it realistic people. I was a huge fan of Barbaro, pharoah, honor code, chrome, etc. and never called them the fastest horses of all time. Reality check!
For those who are trying to compare Arrogate to Secretariat, there is no comparison. Arrogate races in an era where steroids are banned. Secretariat did not!!

How quick people are to forget. Everyone begged for 37 years, THIRTY SEVEN years people. And now his own dam trainer sold him out. Just ridiculous. No respect whatsoever. Horses can be great in their own right in different aspects. There is NO need to disregard the first triple crown winner in 37 years, and first grand slam winner. Shame on you Bob Baffert, you didn't deserve this horse.
This horse just keeps on proving that he has what it takes to race with the best of them! The most consistent colt from his crop. I can't wait to see what he does moving forward!
Anyone have the link of her win?
Rough day at Sunland for Baffert. Noted and Quoted and Bronze Age both eased.
