Arrogate Wins Del Mar Match Race

Juddmonte Farms' Arrogate, the richest Thoroughbred in North American racing, was an easy winner in his match race over Wachtel Stable and Gary Barber's El Huerfano at Del Mar in San Diego on Saturday.

      Winning the 1 1/16th mile contest in dominate fashion, Arrogate was 19 3/4 lengths in front of his competitor at the wire, extending his win streak to eight wins, including the 2016 Breeders' Cup Classic and 2017 Pegasus World Cup and Dubai World Cup. The four year old grey colt earned $18,000 for the win, increasing his record career earnings to $17,102,600.

    It is worth noting that the race was run simultaneously with the Grade II San Diego Handicap, which was contested between Accelerate, Donworth and Cat Burglar.


  1. That's a different way to look at the race, Doug. Perhaps you could package it and sell it to trainers who can then give it to owners who find themselves in Juddmonte Farms' position after a race.
