LOUISVILLE — Korea Racing Authority’s Knicks Go, seeking to become the first repeat winner of Gulfstream Park’s $3 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational (G1), recorded his first workout since capturing the Longines Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) a month ago.
The dark gray worked what was clocked as a three-eighths of a mile in 36.20 seconds under exercise rider Edvin Vargas early Saturday at Churchill Downs. Trainer Brad Cox said he timed Knicks Go galloping out a half-mile in 48 1/5.
Knicks Go is the prohibitive favorite to be voted Horse of the Year and older male champion.
Cox, who is seeking to repeat as the Eclipse Award recipient as North America’s outstanding trainer, said Knicks Go will ship in a few days to the trainer’s New Orleans division at the Fair Grounds.
