Taylor Made Stallions announced today that Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) winner and likely 2021 Horse of the Year Knicks Go will stand the upcoming breeding season for $30,000 S&N.
A scintillating winner of Saturday’s 1 ¼-mile Classic in 1:59.57, nearly eclipsing the 18-year-old Del Mar track record set by Candy Ride (ARG) and the fastest Breeders’ Cup Classic winner on dirt since Ghostzapper in 2004, Knicks Go now boasts a lifetime bankroll of $8,673,135 for owner Korea Racing Authority. Following a superb 2021 campaign in which he also won the Pegasus World Cup Invitational (G1) and the historic Whitney Stakes (G1), Knicks Go could cap his career with a defense of his title in the 2022 Pegasus World Cup Invitational (G1) Jan. 29. He is the No.1-ranked North American horse on Longines World Best Racehorse Rankings and tops NTRA’s Thoroughbred Poll.
The fastest miler in Keeneland history, having won the 2020 Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile (G1) in the new track-record time of 1:33.85, Knicks Go is a multiple Grade 1 winner from eight to nine furlongs and has run triple-digit Beyer Speed Figures of 113, 112, 111, 108 (twice), 107, and 104, all in top company.
Brilliant and precocious, Knicks Go was a debut maiden special weight winner at two and went on to win the 2018 Breeders’ Futurity (G1) at Keeneland by a dominating 5 ½ lengths. He was also runner-up to eventual champion Game Winner in that year’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1).
Knicks Go will be available for showings beginning on Friday, Nov. 12. Taylor Made will host open houses to showcase their entire roster from Nov. 12 through Nov. 16 from 8 a.m. to noon. For more information about Knicks Go or to schedule a showing after 1:30 p.m, please contact Travis White or Liam Benson at (859) 885-3345.
