Red Knobs Racing News
Red Knobs wasn’t highly fancied in the Iroquois at Churchill Downs after two Ellis Park starts produced a sixth-place finish on turf and an off-the-turf victory over a mile. But at odds of 29-1, the Union Rags colt closed strongly to finish third, a length behind winner Major General, and earned two points on the 2022 Road to the Kentucky Derby. From a family that has produced Grade 1 winner Arjuna, Red Knobs is owned by Jim Bakke and Gerald Isbister. His trainer, Louisville native Dale Romans, is seeking his first Kentucky Derby winner.
