BOSSIER CITY, LA – KRA Stud Farms’ Knicks Go headlines a field of ten 3-year-olds in the Super Derby (G3) at Harrah’s Louisiana Downs Saturday, September 7.
Trained by Ben Colebrook, Knicks Go enters the Super Derby field with a career bankroll of $710,925 banked in 11 lifetime starts.
“He was very precocious early in his career,” said Colebrook. “I was not surprised he won the (Claiborne) Breeders’ Futurity; maybe more with the ease that he won the race. I believed he was better than his 70-1 odds, and he validated that in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. It was a thrill to win my first Grade 1 at Keeneland.”
While Knicks Go had a very successful 2-year-old season, including a win in the Claiborne Breeders’ Futurity (G1) at Keeneland, he has struggled in 2019 with five starts and no wins.
“When he turned three, it took him a while to get back on track,” stated Colebrook. “But he has faced some tough horses, including Mr Money, who is the one of best 3-year-olds in the country. The Super Derby is a good spot for him; we are excited to be coming on Saturday.”
The Super Derby field from the rail out: Rotation (3/1), Cabot (12/1), Pirate’s Punch (10/1), Vangilder (8/1), Trevilion (8/1), Rescind (10/1), Fredonian (30/1), Knicks Go (9/5), Leader of Men (6/1), and Paynt Battle (30/1).
