Arcangelo Arrives at Santa Anita

Arcangelo , the top-rated horse in the official Breeders’ Cup Classic rankings, arrived at Santa Anita Park Sept. 27. The Belmont (G1) and Travers (G1) stakes winner was bright and alert Thursday morning.

Trained by Jena Antonucci, Arcangelo has a record of 4-1-0 in six starts with earnings of $1,754,900. The Arrogate ridgling hasn’t lost since his second start as a maiden at Gulfstream Park in January.

Also on Thursday, Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) contender White Abarrio  jogged over the Santa Anita main track. Trained by Richard Dutrow Jr., the Whitney Stakes (G1) winner last worked Sept. 20 at Santa Anita. As for when he’ll return to the tab, assistant Chip Dutrow said Thursday morning “we’ll let him tell us.”

In other Breeders’ Cup news, four horses on the grounds trained by Steve Asmussen—Echo Zulu , Clairiere , Gunite , and Society —all tack walked, according to assistant Scott Blasi.
