DEL MAR, Calif. (AP) Bob Baffert wasn't beating himself up a day after Arrogate's upset loss in the San Diego Handicap at Del Mar that snapped the seven-race winning streak of the world's top-ranked horse.

The Hall of Fame trainer said Sunday that other than getting a lot of dirt in his eyes and mouth the 4-year-old colt emerged in good physical condition after finishing fourth, beaten by 15 \\ lengths as the 1-20 favorite.

Baffert says that as long as Arrogate continues working out well and nothing comes up, the colt will run in the $1 million Pacific Classic on Aug. 19 at Del Mar. Baffert says Arrogate ''will be ready next time.''

Arrogate was never better than fourth among the five-horse field during the race. Accelerate led all the way and won by 8 + lengths.
