Kauto Star & Denman:|| The Kings Of Steeplechasing

Please read if you have a chance :} This video does not do these magnificent horses justice in any way but I had to make something after watching Friday's gold cup. Kauto Star and Denman, stablemates trained by Paul Nicholls are two of the best steeplechasers since Arkle. Kauto Star, the bay French Bred has won basically everything including two Cheltenham Gold Cups, four King Georges, three Betfair Chases, two Tingle Creeks and many more besides. The massive liver chestnut Denman, bred in Ireland is also known as 'The Tank'. He won the RSA chase in 2007 before dethroning Kauto Star in the 2008 Gold cup. He has also won two amazing Hennessy gold cups under top weight, each time giving around two stone to the runners up. In six consecutive visits to the festival he's never finished out of the first two. Between them they've earned over 3 million pounds in prize money and their rivalry has captured the public's imagination more than any other since Mill House and Arkle. Both have had their problems, Denman underwent surgery for a heart problem after his 2008 gold cup win and subsequently it took him basically a whole season to recapture his old form (which he did spectacularly in the 2009 Hennessy). Kauto has been prone to making last fence blunders which occasionally have cost him races he otherwise would have won. As they've got older, many people had begun to question whether they retained their all conquering form, especially after Denman unseated Tony Mccoy in the 2010 ...
