Knox floors Newbury foes26th October 2012
Fort Knox has plenty to live up to as a full-brother to Dubawi Gold but he was more than capable of leading home a Richard Hannon 1-2-3 at Newbury.
Hannon lifted both divisions of the Join Hot To Trot Racing Club EBF Maiden Stakes and Fort Knox (13-2) was most impressive in the second instalment, displaying a neat turn of foot when switched by Pat Dobbs and surging a length and three-quarters away from newcomer Beautiful View, with evens favourite Sea Shanty only third.
Hannon could not recall filling the frame in a race before, while Tim Jones, winning owner Andrew Tinkler's racing manager, said: "I don't know what happened first time at Kempton. We expected him to run well, but he has learned from it. If he ends up as good as his brother we'll be very happy."
