DEL MAR, Calif. (AP) Dubai World Cup winner Arrogate is likely to return to racing after a four-month break in the San Diego Handicap on July 22 at Del Mar.

Trainer Bob Baffert said Monday he'll bring Arrogate to Del Mar for the summer. The 4-year-old colt could make three consecutive starts at the seaside track north of San Diego.

After the San Diego Handicap at 1 1/16 miles, Arrogate could run in the $1 million Pacific Classic on Aug. 19 and the $6 million Breeders' Cup Classic on Nov. 4. The Pacific Classic and BC Classic are both 1 \\-mile races.

Del Mar officials have increased the purse for the San Diego Handicap to $300,000 if Arrogate runs in the Grade 2 race. Otherwise, the purse would be $200,000.

Arrogate has won seven straight races and earned a North American record of $17,084,600. The gray colt has been off since winning in Dubai on March 25.

He missed last year's Triple Crown series because of injury. After winning a minor race at Del Mar last August, Arrogate won the Travers at Saratoga, the BC Classic at Santa Anita, the $12 million Pegasus Cup at Gulfstream and the Dubai World Cup.

Del Mar's summer meet opens July 19.
