Decorated Knight (GB)

Decorated Knight just might be the Rodney Dangerfield of turf horses, getting no respect at all – at least not from the bettors.

Sent off at 25-1 odds, the flashy chestnut closed from last to capture the Qipco Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown in Ireland Sept. 9 under rider Andrea Atzeni. The upset score earned him a spot in the starting gate for the Longines Breeders' Cup Turf at Del Mar.

It was surprising the punters let him go as such large odds as the five-year-old son of Europe’s leading sire, Galileo, had already notched two victories at the highest level this year – the Tattersalls Gold Cup at the Curragh in May and the Jebel Hatta at Meydan in March. Overall, he's won in eight of 18 trips to the starting gate.

Trainer Roger Charlton said he thinks Decorated Knight would relish the fast turf at Del Mar and he's also considering the Breeders’ Cup Mile, even though the Irish Champion Stakes earned the horse a spot in the mile and a half Turf as a “Win and You're In” qualifying race.
