Arrogate Suffers Shock Death

Arrogate

Twice named the worlds greatest race horse, Arrogate has passed away after suffering with an unspecified illness and having to be euthanised.

The seven year old had been retired back in 2017 having been a very special horse for leading American trainer Bob Baffert and having landed over £13.6million in prize money.

Arrogate's most remarkable victories came in the 2016 Breeders’ Cup Classic and both the Pegasus World Cup and Dubai World Cup in 2017.

Since being off the track he was went to his owner Prince Khalid Abdullah's Juddmonte Farm in Kentucky where he was sent to stud but sometime last week fell ill and has since had to be put down.

(Credit AtTheRaces) Juddmonte released a statement saying: “It is with great sadness that Juddmonte confirms that Arrogate was euthanised this morning, after a battle to save him after an illness that began last week. It is still unclear what the illness was and a post-mortem is currently being carried out.

“Arrogate had a very successful breeding season this year until last week when his breeding was suspended due to an initial suspected sore neck.

“Later in the week, he fell to the ground in his stall and efforts to get him back up proved unsuccessful. He was transported to the Hagyard Clinic under the care of Dr Bob Hunt and Dr Nathan Slovis with Dr Steve Reed representing the insurance company.

“They worked tirelessly with the staff from the Hagyard Clinic eliminating all the obvious causes and performing all available tests, including spinal tap evaluation, X-ray, ultrasound, CT Scan and many blood tests.

“Unfortunately, Arrogate was still unable to stand after four exhausting days for him. His will to fight, so valuable to him on the racetrack, became a challenge in his care. When serious secondary health issues set in, the decision was made to put him to sleep.”
