6th-Gulfstream, $72,000, Alw (NW1X)/Opt. Clm ($75,000), 3-28, 3yo, 1m, 1:36.75, ft, 9 lengths.
KNIGHTSBRIDGE (c, 3, Nyquist–Tyburn Brook, by Bernardini), a jaw-dropping debut winner going seven furlongs at Churchill Downs Nov. 4, returned to the races in style at Gulfstream Park Thursday afternoon. The 1-9 favorite, drawn widest of all in post five, broke alertly and held a narrow advantage through an opening quarter in :23.40. Facing continued pressure through a half mile in :45.40, the ‘TDN Rising Star’ began to shake free turning for home and dropped the hammer in the stretch while racing under wraps to win by nine lengths. Sea Streak (Sea Wizard) was second. Knightsbridge is a half-brother to Speaker’s Corner (Street Sense), GISW, $739,963. After producing a filly by Street Sense in 2023, the winner’s dam was bred back to Street Sense and Curlin. Knightsbridge’s second dam is GI Breeders’ Cup Distaff heroine Round Pond (Awesome Again). Lifetime Record: 2-2-0-0, $112,200. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by FanDuel TV.
