Arrogate Named World's Best Racehorse
Arrogate has been crowned the World's Best Racehorse for a second consecutive year at a ceremony at the iconic hotel Claridges in London overnight. The now retired US star earned a rating of 134 which saw him once again earn the title ahead of champion Australian mare Winx with 132. The decision to award Arrogate the top prize is a controversial, if not surprising one given he was beaten at his final three race starts. Indeed, it seems the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities (IFHA) placed particular emphasis on Arrogate's stunning Dubai World Cup victory in March in awarding him a rating of 134. Winx, on the other hand, has been in exceptional form for the past two years winning her last 22 races in succession and collecting her 15th Group 1 victory with an historic third Cox Plate in the spring.
