Kauto Star & Denman:|| The Kings Of Steeplechasing [02:53]
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 ...

Paddock Parade of horses at "Vandrewala Indian Turf Invitation cup-2010". [02:54]
The best horses of all the racing centres in India are invited to contest the "Indian Turf Invitation Cup", a distance of "2400 metres" akin to "Indian Derby"..This race was first held at the "Mahalaxmi Race-Course in Mumbai in 1963 and since then has been run cosequetively every year at a different racing centre in India returning to Mumbai's "Mahalaxmi Race-course" once in every 5 years. On Sunday(7-3-2010), the 48th running of the "Indian Turf invitation cup" and its tenth running at the "Mahalaxmi race-course" in Mumbai was conducted with great fanfare and entertainment . Sponsorship of this race by the "vandrewala Foundation" has given it its name "Vandrewala Foundation India turf Invitation cup-2010". Akin to the "Mcdowell's Indian Derby-2010" there was a carnival atmosphere at the race-course with a "Ice-skating show" performed on synthetic ice floor constructed in the 'members Enclosure", something unique in tropical Mumbai climate.The favourite was "Jacqueline @ 90/100 odds and the second favourite was "Becket" @ 2 1/2 odds, the rest of the 9 horse field were quoted at much longer odds, proving that this was a 2- horse race . There was a crowd of approx 15000 racegoers, less than the "mcdowell Indian derby-2010", but, the race had all the ingredients of a repeat of rivalry between the flliy Jacqueline and colt Becket.
