ANY Planned celebration by the camp of raging hot favourite and Triple Crown hopeful, Nekitta, was dealt a massive blow as Knight Rider stormed home in the final half of a furlong to take the United Insurance Barbados Derby yesterday at the Garrison Savannah.
The Gay Smith-owned son of Storm Arrow out of Stargayzer was given a splendid ride by stable jockey Antonio Bishop for trainer Edward Walcott Jr in the Grade I event for West Indian-bred three-year-olds over 2 000 metres.
It was the first Derby success for the connections and the jockey.
Nekitta did not get off to a good start but recovered to settle behind the early leaders High Tide, Sweet Bottom Sarah, Janak’s Gold, Vanity Affair and Knight Rider in the first four furlongs.
