KNICKS GO is the superstar racehorse who can count stunning swimsuit model Golden Barbie among his growing army of fans.

And he is a money-making machine for owners – who could net £15MILLION from him in his next two races.

Supermodel Jasmine Sanders – known as Golden Barbie – was among the A-listers at last weekend’s Pegasus World Cup to see the five-year-old horse win the £2.2million feature race.

This equine beast – a 6-5 favourite – routed his rivals, easing towards the finish line under a superb ride from Joel Rosario.

A sander, a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model with 4.1million Instagram followers, was on hand to see him claim first place.

The horse found his form after being transferred to Cox’s stable last year.

But while Cox has got the best out of the horse, it is the Korea Racing Authority who are set to earn mega bucks from him.

Victory in the Pegasus World Cup has earned Knicks Go an automatic starting spot in the world’s richest race.

The £14.6m Saudi Cup – run over 1m1f – takes place in Riyadh on February 20 with the winner getting around £10m.

Knicks Go could then travel to the 1m2f Dubai World Cup in Meydan on March 27.

The winner of that race is expected to pocket just over £5m.

Victory in both of those will mean a cool £15m windfall for his owners.

Speaking of Knicks Go’s amazing rise and his win in the Pegasus, Cox said: “Great horses do great things, and he did something great.
