First season sire Decorated Knight enjoyed a new winner at Ripon Racecourse on Saturday when Knight Rider broke his maiden at the third time of asking. Under the guidance of jockey Paul Mulrennan the 2yo son of Decorated Knight out of the Invincible Spirit mare Nazli, tracked the leaders before kicking into gear at the 3 furlong maker. He kept on strongly in the final 100 yards to defeat James Tate’s Alpine Lady by a length and three quarters.
Congratulations to trainer Kevin Philippart De Foy and owner Ahmad Al Shaikh.
