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.

He sure looks good, but greatness certainly ain't in his record yet.  When he successfully competes with other horses in the "great" category, than, we can say he's great.  Gotta go back to Seattle Slew, Spectacular Bid, and Swaps, before greatness can be compared.  IMHO there has only been a couple of horses in this era, that could come close, and their careers were cut short. I'm sure your saying "hey stupid, what about Secretariat or American Pharoah"  They both were certainly the best of their times, but their records and their times were not "great". IMHO

Jim  Sec set the record in the Derby , the Preakness (when hand timed) and the Belmont..what are you talking about..........After Arrogate wins out all his Grade 1's this year he will be an all time great....WAY WAY better than Chrome but not in the stratosphere of Slew or Bid or Big Red

The greatest thoroughbred on the planet -- And greatest I've seen in my 45yrs of watching horse racing.

Next stop Dubai World Cup and the track record there is in jeopardy!

Why does every horse or athlete has to be the best ever?  Win 16 in a row like Cigar did winning all the top races then you have the best ever.  Secretariat broke the track record by 2 whole seconds, pretty good.
