First Two Winners For Deceased Arrogate

Arrogate, the 2016 champion 3-year-old male who died in 2020 during his third season at stud at Juddmonte Farms in Kentucky, was represented by his first two winners on Monday from his initial crop of 85 foals.

Adversity, a New York-bred filly owned by DJ Stable and trained by Mark Casse, won a 2-year-old maiden special weight race under jockey Ricardo Santana Jr. at Saratoga over a sealed sloppy racetrack.

A short time later, the Colts Neck Stables’ homebred colt Affable Monarch aired by 6 1/2 lengths in a maiden special weight race at Monmouth Park. Ridden by Tomas Mejia, Affable Monarch is trained by Jorge Duarte Jr.

Both juveniles are gray or roan.

Bred by Chester and Mary Broman, Adversity was a $335,000 purchase from the Sequel Bloodstock consignment at the 2021 OBS April sale. The filly was produced from Artemis Agrotera, by Roman Ruler.

Affable Monarch was a $425,000 RNA at the Keeneland September Yearling Sale. He is out of the Dynaformer mare, Social Queen.

Arrogate won seven of 11 starts racing at 3 and 4 years old, including four consecutive Grade 1 races: the 2016 Travers and Breeders’ Cup Classic, followed by the 2017 Pegasus World Cup Invitational Stakes and Dubai World Cup. He was trained by Bob Baffert.

Arrogate’s first 15 starters this year were winless.

The son of Unbridled’s Song was euthanized at age 7 in June 2020 after showing signs of a sore neck and then falling in his stall, unable to get up. Hagyard Equine Medical Institute staff ran a series of tests on Arrogate to determine a cause and ultimately were forced to euthanize him when secondary health issues materialized.
