The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Marc Lawrence — Just five years ago the NHL owners unanimously approved the Las Vegas expansion bid, giving birth to the most immediately successful expansion franchise in major sports history.

Since then the Golden Knights have qualified for the playoffs in all four of their seasons. They reached the Stanley Cup Final in Year 1 and are two wins away from returning in Year 4.

The Knights’ all-time record: 173-94-24 (.636)

As a result the Golden Knights were Las Vegas’ first major sports team, but that number has since doubled — and could keep growing as the Oakland Raiders moved to Vegas in 2020, and there are rumors that the NBA and MLB (possibly via the A’s relocating) could be next. Stay tuned.
