Jockey Shaun McGruddy took advantage of a fast-run race with A Knight Of Pro at Belmont on Saturday.


The Proart gelding tracked Forseen and then speared through a gap to pinch a break on Bold Success at the top of the straight.  He kept lifting to hold out the favourite by a three-quarters of a length in the TABTouch Hcp (1300m).



It was McGruddy’s first win back after a family holiday and he’s looking forward to steering more quick ones like A Knight Of Pro.  “He jumped well and really improved off that last run a fortnight ago,” he said.  “We got the run of race and he will keep progressing this time in.”


A Knight Of Pro (5g Proart – Principal Dame by Singspiel) hasn’t been over-extended by trainers Robert & Todd Harvey winning 4 times in 15 starts for prizemoney and Westspeed bonuses of $172,000
