McIlroy wins again…the horse, that is

McIlroy is a winning name, even if it's given to a horse.

A horse simply named McIlroy took home the sixth race at Saratoga Race Course on Saturday, beating Cashmere Cat and Shatak. Interestingly, McIlroy was in post position No. 8, which is the margin by which McIlroy won his first two major championships at the 2011 U.S. Open and 2012 PGA Championship. However, McIlroy the Horse won this race by less than a length.

This was McIlroy's second win in six races and first win since taking the second race at Belmont Park on May 7, beating Make It Gold.
