The inaugural running of the $12,000,000 GI Pegasus World Cup was won today by Arrogate in a winning time of 1:47:3 and by almost 5 lengths over a late closing Shaman Ghost ,with Neolithic, who was in the early mix taking 3rd and Keen Ice , filling in today’s super spot.
Arrogate, also takes home that $7,000,000 winner’s share for Bob Baffert and company making him now the 3rd all-time money winning horse in history.
California Chrome, was backing up quickly on the far turn and finished a well off the board 9th for a disappointing finish to his fabulous career. It was later report by the Chrome camp that Chrome came out of the race with fluid on one of his knees to explain his off performance.

California Chrome had it all his own way early grabbing the early pace and setting all the early factions, but the 2016 Travers champ Arrogate had other ideas as halfway down the stretch Arrogate went right on by California Chrome for the win by a half length.
2015 Travers winner Keen Ice was 3rd back 11 1/4 lengths more with Hoppertunity filling out the super back just a neck further!
Winning time 2:00.11
