There were tears in my eyes...
This afternoon's racing at Kempton has been spectacular anyway. Grand Crus, the best young chaser in training and Binocular, last but one Champion Hurdler, won their races with ease.

Then came the King George the Sixth Gold Cup, Grade 1, second most important level weights chase of the year. And Kauto Star (in the icon), four times winner of this race and twice of the Gold Cup, twelve years old next week, beaten out of sight in this race last year and in the Gold Cup by the brilliant young Long Run, showed all of them how to jump, and race, and battle towards the finish.

1st Kauto Star
2nd Long Run
3rd Captain Chris.

Not a dry eye in the house.
