The race will see a rematch between Arrogate and California Chrome after they fought out the Breeders Cup Classic at Santa Anita in November.
Arrogate has raced just six times while the Pegasus World Cup will be the 27th and final race of California Chrome's career before he goes to stud.

The five-year-old is due to join the stallion roster at Taylor Made Farm for the 2017 breeding season after the World Cup.
