Third for Silver Knott in G2 Secretariat Stakes


Silver Knott rallied late after meeting trouble in running to take third in the G2 Secretariat Stakes at Colonial Downs, USA, on Saturday, 12 August.

Dropping back to a mile after finishing fifth in the G1 Belmont Derby, the Charlie Appleby-trained colt was a little awkward leaving the stalls and raced in fourth initially before moving up a place on the inside rail entering the first turn.

Northern Invader and Gigante shuffled Silver Knott back to a close fifth turning in and the Godolphin three-year-old was squeezed for room over a furlong out, forcing Jamie Spencer to briefly check his challenge. Silver Knott stayed on after finding daylight, taking third from Major Dude on the line.
