KAUTO STAR WINS THE KING GEORGE VI CHASE FOR THE FIFTH TIME

KAUTO STAR made history in the racing world by winning the King George VI Chase at Kempton for the fifth time today.
Paul Nicholls' Champion Chaser ran a superb race by beating the Nicky Henderson's Long Run.
Kauto Star had equalled Desert Orchid's record with four wins in the Chase at Kempton, but his latest triumph in his career has now seen him crowned the 'King of Kings'.
Ruby Walsh, who rode Kauto Star to victory, said that the horse is "amazing" and he's just like a "fairytale". 
The 11 year-old put his rivals to shame as he put on a fantastic jumping performance and once he hit the home straight, not even Long Run could catch him.
Even though Kauto Star is to turn 12 next week, trainer Paul Nicholls said that "he is the best".
"If he gets to Cheltenham in that form he will be the one to beat," he added.
