In Arrogate’s First Work Since Pacific Classic, Baffert Seeks ‘Input’ From Rider Bejarano
Still the highest-rated racehorse of 2017 by Longines, Juddmonte Farm's Arrogate worked on Monday for the first time since the Aug. 19 Pacific Classic, reports bloodhorse.com. The 4-year-old son of Unbridled Song breezed a half mile by himself over the Santa Anita strip in :48 3/5, ridden by Rafael Bejarano.
Jockey Martin Garcia is Arrogate's usual work rider, but trainer Bob Baffert gave the leg up to Bejarano to get a different read on how the colt was feeling.

I still think it's the Del Mar surface he hates so much that he under-performs. If the BC were going to be held at Santa Anita, I would bet the proverbial mortgage on the big grey.
But since it's being held at Del Mar, I'm just hoping that the track surface will settle by BC time and actually be more like the Arcadia track's dirt.

There's nothing wrong with a 48'n change work, but when your workmate is Arrogate and he comes flying by it looks like a total mismatch....

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

I know piling on Arrogate is sort of a national sport right now, but I'm pretty confused by all of those critical reviews on Twitter. Thought that work was far better than anything we've seen from him lately.

The workout was at Santa Anita; I expect him to work well over the Arcadia track. After his BC win, I'd say he's shown that he likes that track. :P
I just don't assume that he's going to work or run over the Del Mar surface with the same comfort and confidence. When he goes back to the seaside track, that's when I want to see a good work.
And I still wouldn't bet my mythical mortgage on him, until after he wins. ;) :lol:

I guess Arro's dominating wins in the Pegasus and World Cup early in the year are going to keep him on top of the Longines rankings for 2017, despite what he's done since. :roll:

I'm not sure a "what have you done for me lately" attitude" is something to be proud of. Unless you are duly impressed with the quality of horse Gun Runner has beaten in the Woodward.

I'm not rolling my eyes for Gun Runner; I'm casting my for-what-it's-worth vote for Enable or Winx. :P :lol:
Longines can abide by whatever rules they've established, but the performances that both E and W have put in this fall have been really impressive...IMHO.
Gun Runner? :shock: You thought I was rooting for the Asmussen runner to climb to the top of the list? Uh...no.
