Arrogate was listed at 1-20 odds ahead of the race. 

"He's fine. He didn't really put out that much. We checked him over (physically) and he looks good. He got a lot of dirt in his eyes and mouth," trainer Bob Bafffert told

"They got away from him. He made a little run, but then he was just flat. This track - you have to be up close. You can't be too far back."

He added: "We'll just go on with him. As long as he's working well and nothing comes up, we're going in the Pacific Classic. I wanted to give him a race here, thinking it would be a great workout for him, but the Pacific Classic is the main goal.

"They were ready for me. John (Sadler) did a great job with his horse. It's disappointing, but Arrogate is OK and that's all that matters. He'll be ready next time."

Arrogate is a favorite to win this year’s Breeders Cup Classic at 4/5 but those odds could get longer following Saturday’s defeat.
