The 4-year-old gelding All Out Arrogant surprised a lot of people on Sunday, when he ran to a neck victory in the $121,410 Bank of America Remington Championship Challenge (G2). But perhaps he shouldn’t have.

Sent off at 17-1 odds, All Out Arrogant paid $37.80 to win, which surely pleased the savvy ’cappers who wagered on him. His $55,848 first-place check pleased owner Randall Dees of Huntington Beach, California, and he also had to please trainer Cody Joiner, who saw the gelding get slammed around at the start before rallying to win the 440-yard race by an all-out head. The horse has now won six of 16 starts, including two other stakes, with career earnings of $108,796, of which 76 percent has been won in the Bank of America Racing Challenge program. 

Bank of America Racing Challenge Director Darrell Hare was on-hand for the Remington Challenge races, which also included victories by Wahoo in the Red Cell Remington Distance Challenge (G3), Shanachee in the Merial Distaff Challenge and Im Beau Brown in the Zoetis Remington Starter Allowance Challenge. As Sunday was Mother's Day, Hare asked some special women to participate in the awards presentations. Bonnie Wilson, mother of jockey Randy Wilson, was on hand to present the Bank of America Challenge trophy. Connie Brooks, the wife of jockey Roy Brooks and mother of jockey Jimmy Brooks presented the Merial Distaff Challenge trophy. Linda Taylor, the mother of trainer Gary Walker, presented the Red Cell Distance Challenge trophy. And Wendy Carnero, wife of jockey Ivan Carnero, presented the Zoetis Starter Allowance Challenge trophy.

All Out Arrogant was bred by Darrell and Dean Frey, and sold at the 2011 Los Alamitos Equine Sale for $12,500. He was sired by FDD Dynasty and is out of the Chicks Beduino mare Oh So Arrogant.

All Out Arrogant is a member of his sire’s second crop, along with the likes of multiple Grade 1 winner Nellie Delaney ($168,683), Grade 1 winner Far Niente ($257,739), Grade 1-placed runners Vancouver Moon ($350,719) and Ill Stop The World ($173,258), and JR Dynasty Mountain ($186,357), who won impressively in the Adequan Derby Challenge Championship (G2) on the same night that All Out Arrogant won the John Deere Stakes on the Challenge Championships undercard.  

FDD Dynasty bears a rather appropriate name, as he is the son of the incomparable First Down Dash and out of the Grade 1-winning mare Dinastia Toll BRZ, the Brazilian daughter of Tolltac. A member of one of the top crops in his decade, FDD Dynasty won the 2006 Ed Burke Million Futurity (G1), a race whose superfecta included world champion Blues Girl Too ($2,032,328), All American Futurity (G1) winner No Secrets Here ($1,637,095) and Grade 1 winner and sire Tac It Like A Man ($417,763). The colt would retire the earner of $1,173,001 and with two championship titles.

From four crops to race, FDD Dynasty has sired the earners of more than $6.2 million. He has sired at a 64 percent win rate, and sired stakes winners at a 10 percent clip. He currently stands at Bob Moore Farms at Norman, Oklahoma.

Dam Oh So Arrogant was also bred by the Freys. The 13-year-old mare is by Chicks Beduino and out of the Merridoc mare Sparkling Secret. She spent the majority of her 20-race career in allowance company, with a record of 2-2-5 $29,050.

Her first foal, Shes So California (by Check Him Out), was a ROM-earner. Her second, a full brother to All Out Arrogant named The Arrogant One, raced for Frey and earned $29,804 while being three-times stakes placed, including a third-place finish in the 2011 John Deere Juvenile Challenge Championship (G2), a race won by Frey’s good mare Shez Jess Toxic. She has a 2-year-old filly by Wave Carver named Occasionally Perfect.

The Freys acquired Sparkling Secret when the mare was 11. The Merridoc daughter had won or placed in 12 of 23 career starts and earned $49,832. Among her races was a victory in the 1989 Miss California Handicap. In addition to Oh So Arrogant, she is also is the dam of Run Hawk Run, a $69,250-earning son of Hawkinson who won two stakes, including the 2006 Canada Cup Derby (RG3).

Sparkling Secret’s dam is Callies Georgette. The mare is a full sister to major stakes winner Callie Can ($156,330), a half-sister to 1996 champion aged gelding IB Quick (by First Down Dash, $246,747), and a half-sister to Grade 1 finalist Sun And Silver (by Beduino (TB), $29,268). Also coming from this family is Superior Race Horse IB Snow ($68,847).

Now it is time for All Out Arrogant’s connections to sit back and plan a summer course for the bay gelding – one that will likely conclude by cashing his ticket to enter the $350,000 Bank of America Challenge Championship (G1) at Prairie Meadows on October 18.
