Arrogate | Coglianese

TDN Rising Star Arrogate (Unbridled’s Song–Bubbler, by Distorted Humor), who concluded his career with a North American earnings record of $17,422,600, will stand his first year at stud at Juddmonte Farms in 2018 for a fee of $75,000, stands and nurses. His book will be restricted to 142 mares, according to a release.

“Our goal is always to provide the best value to our breeders,” said Garrett O’Rourke, manager U.S. operations for Prince Khalid Abdullah’s operation. “We will select the highest quality of mares to offer Arrogate the best chance to be as great a sire as he was a racehorse.”

Bred by Clearsky Farms, the $560,000 Keeneland September yearling purchase went on a run for the ages with victories in the 2016 GI Travers S. prior to besting California Chrome (Lucky Pulpit) in the GI Breeders’ Cup Classic. The gray was the easy winner of the inaugural GI Pegasus World Cup last January, then overcame a world of trouble to defeat recent Breeders’ Cup Classic hero Gun Runner (Candy Ride {Arg}) in the G1 Dubai World Cup.

Among the mares already booked for Arrogate are Juddmonte’s MGISWs Paulassilverlining (Ghostzapper) and By The Moon (Malibu Moon).
