A stellar field of multiple graded stakes winners, including Bertrando, Marquetry, Best Pal, Devil His Due, and Colonial Affair gathered for the 1993 Classic at Santa Anita. Arcangues was not considered one of that distinguished group. Jockey Jerry Bailey, who picked up the mount at the last moment, said he could not understand the instructions offered in the paddock by French trainer Andre Fabre, and he could not pronounce the horse's name. So when Arcangues blew by Bertrando in deep stretch, he became the most improbable of Breeders' Cup winners. Bailey, who seemed as shocked as everyone else, said he simply hugged the rail and hoped for the best. At odds of 133-to-1, Arcangues rewarded his backers with $269.20; a record payoff for a Breeders' Cup race that may never be broken.
