Arrogate tilts GI Travers Stakes by 13 1/2 and a course record – Results and Replay


Arrogate
Arrogatewinning today’s GI Travers Stakes up at Saratoga by a massive 13 1/2 lengths and becoming the first horse in Saratoga history to run a sub 2:00 min at the 1 1/4 mile dirt distance with a winning time of 1:59.36.

Legendary West Coast Trainer Bob Baffert got a full measure of revenge for last year’s big Travers upset of his triple crown winner American Pharoah today up at Saratoga, when his undefeated but lightly raced 3yo in Arrogate, took the early lead in today’s GI Travers Stakes and never looked back. Arrogate‘s win of this year’s Travers edition was by a massive 13 1/2 lengths and set a new 1 1/4 mile stakes and course record of 1:59.36.

Until today, no horse had ever run a sub 2:00 min 1 1/4 mile on the Saratoga main course in it’s 147 years of operations!

Team Baffert really rubbed it in when his other entry American Freedom, finished up 2nd making for a Baffert 1-2 exacta payout of a very nice $134.50. Derby 2nd runner – up Gun Runner, again took 3rd here today, as Gift Box, filled in the super!
