The track press release from October 30, 2022:

Chester and Mary Broman’s homebred Arctic Arrogance [$12] found another gear in the stretch run, drawing off to a 4 1/2-length score in the $200,000 Sleepy Hollow, a one-turn mile for juveniles.

Trained by Linda Rice and piloted by Jose Lezcano, Arctic Arrogance entered from a runner-up effort to returning rival Jackson Heights as the odds-on mutuel favorite in the seven-furlong Bertram F. Bongard here. The Frosted grey made amends with a game effort, taking command from the inside post through splits of 23.62 and 47.93 with Starquist pressing from second in front of Quick to Accuse.

Starquist took over late in the turn with Jackson Heights starting to roll from the back of the pack, but a stubborn Arctic Arrogance cornered well and had something left, powering away to win in a final time of 1:37.90. Quick to Accuse finished second with Starquist, and Donegal Surges rounding out a Broman-bred superfecta. Jackson Heights, Shadow Dragon, Blame It On Daddy, Thtwasthenthisisnw, Canarsie and With Know Name rounded out the order of finish.

Arctic Arrogance, out of the Uncle Mo mare Modest Maven, was a debut winner of a state-bred maiden special weight on September 5 at Saratoga. He banked $110,000 for his Sleepy Hollow score.
