Last year's GI Breeders' Cup Classic winner and likely Horse of the Year Knicks Go (Paynter) was named Top Midlantic-Bred of 2021 in the Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred/The Racing Biz Top Midlantic-bred Poll.
It's the second straight year he's earned Top Midlantic-Bred honors.
“To see him win this award not once but twice is incredible,” said Sabrina Moore, who along with her mother Angie, bred Knicks Go in Maryland. “It's been an amazing journey, and I'm so grateful for it.”
“We are so proud that Knicks Go has been recognized for this honor as the top Midlantic-bred. We have all had so much fun following his stellar career,” said Cricket Goodall, executive director of the Maryland Horse Breeders Association. “It has been quite a year for Maryland-breds on the national stage with Knicks Go and Aloha West. Every breeder dreams of producing horses like these. It is what keeps people in this business!”
