Summary

Anyone switching on the TV at 3pm on Boxing Day 2011 will have been spell-bound to watch one of the most memorable and emotional races in living memory as Kauto Star, the veteran steeplechaser came back to win one of the toughest races of the year. This is the full story of the greatest chaser in recent memory and the first horse to regain his Gold Cup crown. Integral to the tale is his rivalry with next-door neighbour Denman at Paul Nicholls all-conquering yard as the pair captured the hearts of the public as they battled for supremacy at Cheltenham. The ability of Clive Smith's superstar to bounce back after being written off by some is one of his enduring characteristics during an unrivalled career at the top of the sport. His record-breaking victory in the King George was saluted by his thousands of adoring fans at Kempton and millions of admirers in the racing world.
