Fucking beaut. Won me 300 today and plenty more over the years. Incredible achievement today considering his age and the copetition in the race - Long Run, Sommersby, Master Minded.... Incredible. Now for the Gold Cup...
I listened to a discussion about Kauto Star on Christmas Eve. They said people didn't expect the horse to win, that people wouldn't mind if he came in 5th as long as people had seen the horse race one last time. It's astonishing Kauto Star won.
How much money has the horse earned for the owner?
Yeah few expected him to win but the fact he won the last day against a similar field, which was definitely a shock, people started to wonder could he do it again. If he wins the Gold Cup it will certainly go down as one of the greatest achievements in racing history.
God I'd say he's won some amount of money for him at this stage. The credit has to go to Nicholls, incredible trainer - Big Bucks was setting the records only a few weeks ago and now Kauto. There's a few really good young horses coming through in Nicholls yard at the moment aswell so the tide doesn't look like changing.
If Kauto wins tomorrow it will be incredible. Don't have any money on it, mainly due to barely having any left after the past couple of days, but also because it's such a tough one to call. Everything points towards Long Run but you can't back against Kauto.
