Arrogate crushed the field of 13 in the 2016 Travers when he drew off to win by 13 1/2 lengths while setting a new track record.Read More

  • Elhubbo · Wow, I'm trying to remember seeing another horse looking that strong at the wire. Arrogate is no fluke. All I could think the last furlong was how much that resembled Ghostzapper. · 1 day ago
  • Blueyedhusky via Disqus · It's funny how I made this comment in another thread yesterday: "Look at the Travers stakes, the stakes and track record (2:00.00) was set by General Assembly in 1979. The only other G1 he won was the Hopeful at age two. Since then, only two horses have come within a second of that record, Easy Goer in 1989 (2:00.80) and Thunder Rumble in 1992 (2:00.99). We all know who Easy Goer was, but Thunder Rumble's only G1 win was the Travers. So what does that prove? Any good horse is capable of having an exceptional race on any given day. Take Frosted's Met Mile. He set the stakes record, does that mean he's better than Ghostzapper, Holy Bull, Forego, Kelso, and Native Dancer?" Then, curiously enough, along comes Arrogate and breaks the track and Travers record in the most impressive fashion. So now we're faced with the same question I posed in the last paragraph: Does this exceptional performance make him better than other great horses who have won the Travers? I guess time will tell. The same goes for Frosted. The point is that they need to follow up their exceptional record-breaking performance with something consistent with it. Otherwise it would've just been a perfect storm that day. · 1 day ago
Well Creator wasn't too far at all out of 4th.
1st: California Chrome 2nd: Frosted 3rd: Beholder 4th: Nyquist 5th: Effinex 6th: Exaggerator 7th: Dortmund 8th: Firing Line 9th: Melatonin 10th: Destin 11th: Creator 12th: Mubtaahij 13th: Mohaymen 14th: Hoppertunity 15th: Arrogate
  • Mary via Disqus · after yesterday, I'd put Arrogate WAY higher up this list! My 'wish' list in order - 1. California Chrome 2. Exaggerator 3. Hoppertunity 4. Dortmund 5. Arrogate 6. Frosted 7. Mubtaahij 8. Nyquist 9. Melatonin 10. Firing Line 11. Destin' 12. Effinex 13. Mohayman (not sure he belongs in this field) 14. Creator (ditto) EDIT - the two horses I had on the bottom are now officially finished for the year. Hmmmm....... I hope Beholder goes in the Distaff. That would be a great race! Otherwise, it's probably Songbird's win without much drama, with Stellar Wind second. · 1 day ago
Arrogate was lucky to find himself on the lead with those easy fractions..especially mid fractions on that speed track especially at long distances..any one of a handful of horses in there if they got lucky and found themself as the ones on the lead they would have been the winner and track record holder..sometimes it pays to be in right spot at right time..regardless who won the travers today..they wont do much of anything in the BCC vs the top horses and where the track bias wont able them to run same kind of race

  • Hardfreeze · Hahaha that is a very stupid comment. I agree that he might not be better than the older horses but this colt didn't "get lucky" and "find himself on the lead". He ran fast enough early to put the field away while getting pressured by 2 very good horses in American Freedom and Gun Runner. The bottom line is this - 12 length winner in 1:59.36. The fastest 1 1/4 at Saratoga at the distance ever. Pretty impressive and luck had nothing to do with it. · 1 day ago
  • lostarts via Disqus · Silly Comment, Arrogate was primed for high stakes competition. Anyone who watches SoCal racing knows he is among a super talent young crop of horses coming out of Socal. Just like Drefong, Enola Grey, Chasing Aces, Champagne Room, Green With Eddie, Big League. No Surprises here. =D · 1 day ago
Masochistic, the overwhelming favorite at 1-5, delivered as expected Saturday with a brilliant front-running victory under jockey Tyler Baze in the featured Grade II $200,000 Pat O’Brien Stakes. Read More

wide open race i,l take a punt on arrogate, american freedom gift box , ex, be a great race
Arrogate in 1:59????? I thought he was just a little outclassed in this race, but he blew everyone out of the water. If he continues, he could beat California Chrome in the BCC.

  • Ferrisjso26 · And to think we all thought American Freedom was the real threat among the Baffert horses lol. Also a 1.59.00 at Santa Anita could probably come close to the world record, and this horse is three. OMG. · 2 days ago
  • sczen50 · uhh right...think of what Chrome would've done -as Gary Stevens said--had Chrome been given his head or urged..he was a 4/5ths of a second slower.... and under a stiff pull.. Alot of restraint as the other jockeys noted. Heck! It's easy to see just watching the race...and won by at least 5 lengths!~! But yeah!! This was a very great race for him...now all he needs to do is take out Dortmund...Beholder...Effinex...Melatonin.. and Chrome & Frosted. Yeah we'll see... the BCC should be very interesting--I think we'll see Chrome get pushed this time. Bet he stalks that pace. · 1 day ago
So what's next for this horse - the JCGC or the AA?
Where the $%#! did this horse come from?
Hey... out of my top three I got two! That's not too bad for someone that picks horses based on color and name. :)
Exaggerator's Eclipse dream just died.
  • Players Klub via Disqus · Still time. Who would get the 3 year old crown if the year ended tomorrow?? Can't give it to Arrogate off this one race if he bombed the rest of the year. · 1 day ago
