Trained by Brad Cox and ridden by Joel Rosario, Knicks Go played catch me if you can in the 38th running of the $6 million Longines Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) for 3-year-olds and up, and no one could as he posted a 2 ¾-length victory over Medina Spirit to conclude the Breeders’ Cup World Championships races Saturday afternoon at Del Mar.

A 5-year-old Maryland-bred son of Paynter out of the Outflanker mare Kosmo’s Buddy, Knicks Go improved his record to 24-10-3-1 that includes five Grade 1 victories. The winner’s share of $3,120,000 increased his earnings to $8,673,135. Get results and payouts to the 2021 Breeders’ Cup races below.
