Sunday’s cover: Arrogate powers way to finish line of Dubai World Cup

Though Arrogate made it interesting to start things off by stumbling out of the gate, the finish line all belonged to the favourite, who – ridden by jockey Mike Smith – takes the Sport cover for the Sunday, March 26, 2017 edition of The National.

Horse racing correspondents Geoffrey Riddle and Amith Passela had the whole nine-race event covered, including the Arrogate win that inspired comparisons to Secretariat afterward from trainer Bob Baffert.
