DUBAI WORLD CUP favourite Arrogate will break from stall nine under regular rider Mike Smith in Saturday’s $10 million contest.

The Bob Baffert-trained colt, officially the highest-rated horse on the planet, arrives on the back of victory in the inaugural running of the $12 million Pegasus World Cup – the most valuable horserace in the world.

Breeders’ Cup Classic hero Arrogate is the general 1-3 favourite to win the Dubai World Cup. Baffert’s other representative Hoppertunity was drawn in stall 12, while Arrogate’s main market rival Mubtaahij, an 8-1 shot, fared even worse and was drawn widest of all in stall 14 as he bids to go one better than last year.

Gun Runner, the only other horse at a single-figure price, has been drawn in gate five.

Last year’s Dubai World Cup was won by California Chrome, who Arrogate subsequently beat in a race for the ages in the Breeders’ Cup Classic.
