Throwback Thursday Race - 19/11/20

Kauto Star

Again, we are looking back at some of the best Betfair Chase contests over the years and today it is the turn of the legendary Kauto Star, who landed the event four times during his career.

From 2006 to 2011 the Paul Nicholls trained superstar landed the Grade One four times and we are concentrating on his final win in the race.

Kauto Star is one of the greatest jumps horses to ever grace the sport, being the first horse to retain the Gold Cup after losing it and also landed the King George VI Chase at Kempton a record five times in a row.

In this renewal the gelding was in his last season at the age of 11 and still managed to see off a superb field that included the 2010 winner of the race Long Run.

Kauto Star will always go down at one of the greatest chasers in British jumps racing history and there are not many horses that will ever be able to do what he did during his career.
