After Arrogate’s unbelievable win at the Dubai World Cup this month, it’s no wonder why people are starting to say he was one of the best to ever run. However, American Pharoah still holds the only title of the Grand Slam. So, who’s better?
I grew up with Seattle Slew, Forego, Alydar and Affirmed. Today Arrogate made them mere mortals. I stand in complete awe of him.

“I thought then, ‘If he wins this race, he’s the most incredible horse I’ve ever seen,’” Baffert said, perhaps so caught up in the moment that he forget that trainers are not supposed to say anything that can be construed as a comparison between top horses owned by different interests.

The two of them seem to be in their own leagues. Pharoah achieved legendary status as a 3 year old. Arrogate is a 4 year old. They are both incredibly talented horses that are thrilling to watch.
