BREAKING NEWS: Epicharis, the Japanese qualifier for the Kentucky Derby, will NOT run in the Kentucky Derby and instead will point towards either the Preakness or the Belmont Stakes. A spokesman for the connections confirmed.

Sometimes in Thoroughbred racing we have a tendency to spew out superlatives in the immediate aftermath of a spectacular performance. We start comparing the winner to the greats of the past, and then, like always, time has a way of tempering our spontaneous hyperbole and jolting us back to reality. So, following Arrogate’s mind-boggling performance in the Dubai World Cup, I wisely decided to wait for the goose bumps to subside and my hands to stop trembling before letting my fingers go anywhere near a computer keyboard. My brain was filled with so many awe inspiring and impassioned words and descriptions of what I had just seen it left my thought pattern in total disarray. But I have settled down and am cool, calm, and collected…sort of. I am not going to rattle off a litany of superlatives, for I guarantee every one of them has been or will be used. So, I am going to dig into my memory bank that goes back 50 years and see if I can recall anything that even resembles what we all saw on a windy, drizzly night in Dubai. And while I’m at it, anything that remotely resembles what we have seen from Arrogate in the four Herculean performances since he burst on the scene from seemingly out of nowhere last August with his other worldly feat in the Travers Stakes. Can a horse actually be considered one of the greats of all time based on four races? Can you compare Arrogate to the likes of Secretariat, who singlehandedly raised the equine genus up a notch? That would seem blasphemous. Let me reiterate, we’re talking about four races. But after today it makes one wonder; is it possible to encapsulate a typical all-time great career into four races if they as a whole not only define the word great, but take it to plateaus never witnessed before, and in such a short period of time. Can a horse conceivably earn just under $17 million in only four races? It’s almost as if Arrogate has taken on the best qualities of different great horses in each of his four stakes victories. In the Travers, he ran with the fiery spirit and reckless abandon of Dr. Fager, who had the ability to carry his blazing speed long distances of ground and set track records. How else can you describe a horse who ran a top-class field into the ground from the start and won by 13 1/2 lengths, shattering a 37-year-old track record that not even the greatest 3-year-olds of the past could approach. It is a record that likely will never be broken. If he were a filly, there wouldn’t be one person following the Travers who didn’t compare him to Ruffian, the only filly who ran with that kind of speed, fury, and power. He also brought back the very recent memory of American Pharoah, who would just run his opponents off their feet on the lead. No, he hasn’t carried the weights Dr. Fager and the champions of the past carried, but that no longer is a criteria for greatness, and Secretariat never carried those high weights either. In the Breeders’ Cup Classic, he demonstrated the versatility and adaptability of Spectacular Bid, the horse who could do everything. By changing tactics and sitting back off the pace and then delivering a powerful knockout punch to run down Horse of the Year and the leading money-winner in history in North America, California Chrome, and in fast time, Arrogate showed that he, like, The Bid, could do anything, adjust to any scenario, and do it against top-class older horses. In the Pegasus World Cup, the richest race in the world, Arrogate looked like a composite of the great horses of the ‘90s, Cigar, Holy Bull, and Skip Away. While Cigar liked to lay back a bit off the pace, and Holy Bull and Skip Away could beat you on the lead, they all won major races just off the pace and then left their opponents for dead in the stretch, as Arrogate did, winning by 4 1/2 lengths in track-record time. And finally, we come to the Dubai World Cup, and here we can only compare him to Secretariat in the way he did something no other horse ever did or ever will.
According to Trakus Arrogate ran the last 400 meters in 23.829 seconds. This is 7.66ft less than 1/4 mile. Arrogate covered the last 1/4 in about 23.96. I'd say that is flying.
It would be a real shame if they did not stretch Arrogate out from the 10 furlongs just to see what he can do. I realize the Brooklyn and Cougar III are not going to cut it. The Arc is 12 furlongs. A Coronation Cup (12F) or St Leger (14.5F) would work in England. Realize it is a long shot........but it just seems like a crime for this horse that can seemingly run all day (at a legit pace).
It looks as of Arrogate came out of the DWC with energy to spare, if you check out #Arrogate you can see him back in his stall moving nicely, all puffed up still.
ON ARROGATE: " If anybody wasn't (like) super impressed with that (Arrogate winning the DWC), they just don't like horse racing" Bob Baffert - at the post DWC press conference. ON ARROGATE: Sometimes a circumstance presents itself to allow a horse to show how really brilliant he is, and he got that opportunity today. It wouldn't have been our choice but I'm delighted now with the way it worked out. He got to show how brilliant he... because he had to be brilliant to win today. " Garret O'Rourke (Juddmonte Manager @ post race conference) ON ARROGATE: There have been twenty-two Dubai world cups, and that I think, will rate equally as the most spectacular perhaps (with dime) Dubai Millenium’s,.. all the way in 2000. Last out of the machine,.. still 10 lengths off them... turning out of the back, he swept home and won it running away". Terry Spargo (Dubai World Cup track announcer since 2001) ON ARROGATE "I THOUGHT I'D SEEN IT ALL" - Steve Haskin cs.bloodhorse.com/blogs/horse-racing-steve-haskin/archive/2017/03/25/i-thought-i-had-seen-it-all.aspx
Rafi, your writing style gives your most recent prevarication gives us a reason to stick out as FICTION as it always does.
Hollie Hughes, not Henny--that's Beholder's dad. 'night.
Henny Hughes saw BOTH MOW and Secretariat and he chose the latter hands down. Ask some one who REALLY KNOWS the game and they can tell you what quality is like.
Can't tell if it was the turf or if Dortmund doesn't want to be a race horse anymore. He did look uncomfortable on the turf and looked awkward on it so perhaps that was the case. We'll see on his next start on dirt.
I never saw a horse recover a bad start and win a race like Arrogate did today. I keep watching the replays of the race, fun to watch !
Good old Zippy, 1.35 out of 10.
He has won against top competition before and now through adversity and he seemed like he can still run after the race. This is as much as we know. It does not bother me if anyone will think he's not one of the top to race ever, but I'll surely regret it if I don't enjoy every time he races.
Congratulations to Arrogate and his connections! He did what he to do to win, and I was not necessarily giving him the benefit of the doubt that he would still be at his peak today. However, you have to realize that this where California Chrome was last year at this time (on top of the world). But, he eventually did fall to someone who was totally unknown at this time last year. What goes around comes around, and the invincible Arrogate will probably fall to a 3 year old later this year that comes setting records out of the blue. That is, unless he really does have that 20 pound heart like Secretariat. And if he does, why was not in the Triple Crown last year even once? Or was that totally Bob Baffert's error in not properly assessing who needed to be aimed toward the Triple Crown?
While everyone is busy fawning over Arrogate (and for good reason, of course) I can't help but express my admiration for this tough, gritty star. He ran good enough to win any other year and had lengths on the 3rd place horse. What a wonderful run he put in today.
Hopper didn't score well on this years Dubai Workd Cup, overall his career is pretty consistent to say the least but I'm thinking his connections should consider running him on the east coast the remainder of this year so he doesn't encounter Arrogate and also definitely retirement should be in the discussion for Hoppertunity
While Arrogate didn't meet expectations this horse did.
Baffert said Arrogate is the best horse he's seen since Secretariat........Smith said he's the best he's ever ridden. Enough said.
The winning form of the 2017 DWC is arguably the strongest over the past 5 years as the 2nd and 3rd place finishers of this race will likely win their next respective graded stakes.
