Juddmonte Farms announced today that Breeders' Cup Classic-bound Arrogate, the defending Classic Champion, will retire to stud at Juddmonte US in Lexington Kentucky, after the Breeders' Cup at Del Mar.

A winner of four Gr. 1 events including: the Gr. 1 Travers Stakes by 13 1/2 lengths, in track record time in his stakes debut - the $6,000,000 BC Classic over 2 time Horse of the Year California Chrome, posting a -1 Ragozin sheet figure - the $12,000,000 Pegasus World Cup Invitational Stakes by 4 3/4 lengths, and the $10,000,000 Dubai World Cup, in a race where World Cup race caller Terry Spargo described Arrogate as "the Man o' War of the 21st century". The Eclipse champion 3YO colt has amassed career earnings to date of $17,302,600 and earned the title: Longines World's Best Racehorse, in both 2016 and 2017.

By Breeders' Cup Juvenile winner and Champion sire Unbridled's Song out of the Distorted Humor mare Bubbler, he hails from the immediate family of Eclipse Champion 2YO filly, Meadow Star.

Hall of fame trainer Bob Baffert said of Arrogate: "That's the greatest horse I've ever seen run."

Juddmonte's Manager Garrett O'Rourke commented that "Arrogate is training forwardly towards his next start in the Classic, as witnessed by his bullet workout today."

A stud fee has yet to be announced.
