You saw that on the gallop videos this morning, too? Looks like a big white quarter crack patch on the front/inside of the right front. Or maybe it was just a weird flash from the lighting. I can't find a picture.

Regardless, he looked like he was really getting over the track well. Strong.

I saw a little flash of white but the only photos that I could find where he had a white patch were from the Pegasus.

It has dirt on it lol but you can see he has a patch on his right front hoof there too.

Asked about this on the Paulick Report and Ray emailed back that he was told by Baffert barn that it was not a patch but was “ shoeing support,” whatever that means.

Now I don't know the first thing about this, but seems to me if Arrogate needs this "shoeing support" in order to safely run, then he shouldn't be running.

Unless it acts like an orthotic. I don't know better either, but not knowing should probably disqualify us from thinking too hard

That's a pretty... stratospheric... assumption.
