Anthony Knott breaks the schneid

United Kingdom Amateur Jockey Anthony Knott broke a 28 year old winless streak when he won a race today aboard 7-1 odds Wise Men Say. Knott also owns the horse. Not being used to being in front, Knott almost blew it when he stood up to acknowledge the crowd about 1/2 a furlong short of the finish in the Racing Post Hands And Heels Novices’ Handicap Hurdle.

The News was big enough for Knott to be named today's Best Person in the World on Countdown with Keith Olbermann on MSNBC.
