Arrogate and Hoppertunity head a strong Team USA, which also includes Grade I victor Gun Runner (Candy Ride ) and Pegasus third and fourth Neolithic (Candy Ride ) and Keen Ice (Curlin).
California Chrome took 27 races to accomplish that feat.
It seems impossible. After all, Arrogate's racing career isn't even one year old, and his stakes career is only seven months old and spans all of four races.
Arrogate's trainer, Bob Baffert, was all praise for his jockey.

Meanwhile, an inflation gauge closely watched by the Federal Reserve increased 2.1 per cent in February compared to a year ago. The Nasdaq Composite rose 0.3% to 5,914.34, for its fifth-straight session of gains and 21st record close for the year.
Baffert, who has trained such American greats as Triple Crown hero American Pharoah and previous winners of this race Captain Steve and Silver Charm, believes he has never had a horse with such a raking stride as Arrogate.
In Dubai, Baffert added, per The Guardian, "When he missed the break, I gave him no chance at all". He started to make a move and then I got a little hope, heâ€™s just the best I've ever seen in my life, it's unbelievable.
Afterward, Baffert proclaimed the star of his stable "the greatest horse since Secretariat".
"I have been blessed with some really, really good horses, but I am not sure I have ever sit on one like this", Smith said. The four-year-old, carrying the famous Khalid Abdullah colours also sported by Frankel, was last after being squeezed out at the start and one stage was some 20 lengths behind the leader. The latter's branch of the line is responsible for Triple Crown victor American Pharoah via Pioneerof the Nile.

Although my long time friend Andy Beyer does not officially do Speed Figures for races in foreign countries, he and his valued associate Randy Moss made a set of unofficial Figs for Saturday's dirt racing in Dubai.
The other $6 million race, the Group 1 Dubai Sheema Classic over 2,410 meters, was claimed comfortably by Godolphin-owned and John Gosden-trained Jack Hobbs. He began to urge him in the far turn, picking off rivals one at a time, until he passed Neolithic and Gun Runner to take the lead in the stretch.
"The start, it just went wrong and was not what he was used to; he missed it and then found traffic". Fawree threw his rider last time he was to run in Dubai, but he would have been a heavy favorite, so he'd be a horse to examine closely in the paddock and if he's good, bet him. Such sustained acceleration is extremely rare, especially when it continues all the way to the finish.
