Saturday’s Dubai World Cup Festival at Meydan Racecourse brought together racing’s international elite and thousands of fans to celebrate fashion, fireworks, music, and first and foremost, some of the world’s best horse racing.
All eyes focused on the $10 million Dubai World Cup, the last stakes race in a card that offered $29 million in total prize money. Thirteen challengers squared off against the world’s top-ranked racehorse, Juddmonte Farms’ Arrogate, who shipped to Dubai off of a win in the $12-million Pegasus World Cup Invitational.
Arrogate’s last-to-first win after a rough start will go down as one of the most memorable performances in Dubai World Cup history. Here’s our collection of the best tweets about Arrogate’s amazing race and a spectacular Dubai World Cup 2017!

I grew up with Seattle Slew, Forego, Alydar and Affirmed. Today Arrogate made them mere mortals. I stand in complete awe of him.

"I immediately thought of Zenyatta - I'm gonna ride him like her" Mikey says when he misses the #DWC17 break on Arrogate. That's special.
