Arrogate auditions for Travers in optional claimer


DEL MAR, Calif. – Arrogate missed a couple days’ training last month, which quashed trainer Bob Baffert’s original plan to send him to the Jim Dandy Stakes at Saratoga last weekend. But Arrogate got back to work fairly quickly, and now he’ll get back to the races in a $68,000 optional-claiming race Thursday at Del Mar that just might propel Arrogate to the Travers Stakes at Saratoga on Aug. 27.
