Arrogate “worst to first” in $10,000,000 Grp 1 Dubai World Cup win – Results and Replay

Arrogate with Mike Smith on board winning the 2017 Grp 1 Dubai World Cup making him the richest horse in North American horse racing history!

Arrogate, broke to a most usual poor start from the Meydan gates today as he was trailing this field of 14 as they past the grandstands for the first time. But fear not Arrogate fans as he steadily improved his position running down the backstretch on the outside, then he started picking off foes one by one on the far turn then with about 200 yds to go caught and passed both his front running American mates in Gun Runner and Neolithic to come running home to a 2 1/4 lengths win in a 2:02.15 winning time.

Gun Runner did stay on for 2nd, 3rd went to Neolithic in another American 1/2/3 sweep again, with the local Meydan hero Mubtaahij filling out the super!

Hoppertunity, came 6th this year while Keen Ice finished up 7th!
