Arrogate works a half-mile in 48.60 under Martin Garcia Tuesday morning at Santa Anita.

Arrogate, last year's Eclipse Award-winning 3-year-old male, worked a half-mile Tuesday morning at Santa Anita, his first drill since his victory in the $12 million Pegasus World Cup at Gulfstream Park on Jan. 28.

Arrogate was given an official time of 48.60 seconds, and trainer Bob Baffert said he clocked Arrogate galloping out five furlongs in 1:01. Jockey Martin Garcia, his regular work rider, was aboard. Arrogate went by himself, without company.

"He got lonely there in the stretch. He was just galloping along," Baffert said.

Baffert said Arrogate has done "really well" since the Pegasus.

"He's held his weight well, he's happy," Baffert said.

Arrogate has won the Travers, Breeders' Cup Classic, and Pegasus in his last three starts. He is nominated to the Dubai World Cup at the end of next month. Baffert said he's "not in any hurry to make any call" regarding where Arrogate runs next.
