1993 Breeders’ Cup Classic: Bertrando looked to be home free then came Arcangues at 133-to-1

Japanese horse breeders are short on either English translators or common sense. So, please bear with me while I speak for the world: In the future, could you nice folks  in the land of the rising sun please tell us all when a Breeders Cup Classic winner dies?

Thank you. We’d appreciate it.

A couple of days ago, a spokesman for the Japanese Racing Association announced that Arcangues was dead — and that, oh yeah, he hasn’t been alive since October 2006. Yutaka Yokoyama said that Arcangues was last active as a stallion at Aomori-ken Keiba Bokujo where he died at age 18.

A French bred, Arcangues, with Jerry Bailey aboard, came out of nowhere to win the 1993 Breeders Cup Classic at 133-to-1.
