Knight Villain

Knight Villain - We know what happened to him "after the finish line". He is one of the lucky ones. Knight had an owner/trainer who wanted him to have a good home. She sold him to Bits & Bytes Farm so that he could have a second career as a sport horse.


Knight Villain is happy to have a good home after winning almost $300,000!
