Arrogate won the world’s richest thoroughbred race — the $12 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational — at Gulfstream Park on Saturday by 4 3/4 lengths over Shaman Ghost, with Neolithic in third and Keen Ice in fourth. The win comes less than a week after Arrogate was named Longines’ World’s Best Racehorse. It’s Arrogate’s sixth consecutive win.
