Arrogate and Drefong Work For BC


Arrogate | Santa Anita

Champions Arrogate (Unbridled's Song) and Drefong (Gio Ponti) both breezed at Santa Anita Tuesday in preparation for their respective Breeders' Cup races.

Working in company with Uninvited (Misremembered), “TDN Rising Star” and defending GI Breeders' Cup Classic hero Arrogate drilled a best-of-44 five furlongs in :59.40 under Rafael Bejarano (video).

“Arrogate went well, a nice, smooth work,” said trainer Bob Baffert. “I'm happy with him. As long he's doing well, we're looking at the Classic.”

Piloted by Hall of Famer Mike Smith, fellow “TDN Rising Star” and defending GI Breeders' Cup Sprint winner Drefong covered a half-mile in :48.20 (6/54) in company with Show Me Da Lute (Midnight Lute) (video).

“He went easy, just a little maintenance drill,” Baffert said.

Smith added, “He went really, really well.”
