JOCKEY TAKES HIS TIME COMING IN FIRST

Britain’s worst jockey, Anthony Knott, never won a race despite 28 years of trying. At 44, the father of three was famous in racing circles for usually coming in last—even his children taunted him about it. That changed recently at Wincanton track in Somerset when Knott finally romped to victory riding Wise Men Say. Knott has declared that his racing days are now over, and he plans to retire to his dairy farm.
