ARCADIA, Calif. -- Dubai World Cup winner Arrogate is back at Santa Anita after coming out of quarantine following his return from the Middle East.

The 4-year-old horse won the $10 million race by 2\ lengths last weekend.

Trainer Bob Baffert welcomed Arrogate on Saturday as the horse stepped off a van coming from Los Angeles International Airport.

Baffert says Arrogate will be pointed toward the $1 million Pacific Classic at Del Mar on Aug. 19, followed by the Breeders’ Cup Classic on Nov. 4 at the same seaside track north of San Diego. The Hall of Fame trainer says it’s possible Arrogate could race once in between those two events.

Baffert says the horse will train over the next month, but won’t breeze on the track.

Arrogate has won seven of eight career starts and is North America’s all-time leading money winner with $17,084,600.
