THERE was an Irish connection to the winner of the Grade 1 Pegasus World Cup Invitational Stakes last weekend at Gulfstream Park in the USA.

The race was won by Knicks Go, a five-year-old son of Paynter (Awesome Again), and this Korea Racing Authority-owned grey was extending his current unbeaten run to four. He was last seen when winning the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile at Keeneland.
