Arrogate to start from gate nine in Dubai World Cup Thu, 23 Mar 2017
Favourite Arrogate will start from barrier nine of 14 in the Dubai World Cup at Meydan.
The Bob Baffert-trained four-year-old was the highest-rated horse in the world last year and is equal with Australian champion Winx in 2017. Winx was the the 2016 world's best on turf.
Arrogate is odds-on to win the US$10 million race on Saturday (early Sunday morning New Zealand time).
His stablemate Hoppertunity will start from gate 12 while the Mike de Kock-trained Mubtaahij, runner-up to California Chrome last year, will have to come from widest alley.
Baffert told Bloodhorse.com Arrogate had settled in well and his preparation had gone smoothly.
