Kauto Star & Denman :|| What Legends Are Made Of [02:53]
NO COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT INTENDED. Please please don't remove this video, clips and music are property of their rightful owners and this video was made because I love the horses, not for profit! Kauto Star and Denman. Two truly magnificent horses of National hunt racing. Anyone who knows racing loves these horses. There are Kauto fans and Denman fans (I have to confess I'm one of those xD) But they are really both just exceptional horses. Why do we have to compare them? Kauto, the flashy french bred, an example of equine brilliance, with an amazing turn of foot and usually flawless jumping. He has won 14 grade ones, including four King George's and two Gold cups. His most recent season has been tough, after falling in the 2010 gold cup, losing his king George crown and being pulled up at Punchestown (after a valiant third in the 2011 gold cup). Many have called for him to be retired. He is 11 years old. I'd hate to see him go downhill, or worse, injure himself, but my opinion is give him one more race,as he may bounce back after the Summer. He doesn't owe us anything but connections will have his best interests at heart whatever they choose and doesn't he deserve one more chance? Denman, the powerful irish bred, a real slogger blessed with extraordinary stamina, he can grind his opponents into the ground. Different to Kauto in many ways, as he doesn't have as many grade ones to his name (only 4) but seemingly unbeatble at his peak. He has put up breathtaking displays in ...

Race with three Greys at Bonvilston proves popular with first time racegoers! [02:36]
One of the greys, Stoneriggs Merc, wins the race at 16/1 which was nice for several families I heard who placed small bets on it! One had not been racing since Desert Orchid as they had been abroad; but had clearly enthused their children with tales of the great grey! But watch the race through to the end. The staying on odds on favourite Kisha King is pressing him after the last; so Joseph Williams gives him a slap with the whip just to keep him going to the line. Now a small minority of people- often who have little interest in Racing or knowledge of horses worry about the whip. In fact; if you watch this video the horse comes right over to my camera and you can hear the whip and see the action close up. This should alleviate any worries - as you can see there is no way that the air cushioned whip has or can hurt or damage the horse in any way. So some say 'so why have it?' Well because horses are herd animals and use their teeth to communicate. A little nip administered by one horse will move the other horse on; or out of the way. Similarly the jockey uses the whip to keep a horse straight or keep it going or move him out of danger. Thus the stimulus of that tap of the whip has the same effect - the horse knows to keep going! As you can see from the video close up; the whip causes no problems for the horse who has a thick hair coat; but it understands to keep going. After all; while the horse clearly enjoys running; he does not know where the line is. You can see also ...

Interview with Daredevil school teacher Hannah after finishing second in First Ever Pt to Pt Ride! [02:11]
I have the utmost admiration for Jumps Jockeys. The Cheltenham Gold Cup this year showed that at their best Amateur Riders; that learn their skills out hunting and in the Point to Point Field; can compete with the professionals. However while some have said I have been quite a daredevil myself ; I would never have the guts to do steeplechasing!! Here I interview Hannah adams to see what it felt like to ride in a point to point for the first time...

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 ...

Steeplechasing:|| CHELTENHAM IS NEARLY HERE [02:24]
:D HD please? This video isnt just about Cheltenham, it's more about the stars of last season. I'm so excited for cheltenham, only 3 days away. I wonder who will be the stars this year? I want Binocular or Peddler's Cross for the CH, Big Zeb for the CC, Grands Crus for the WH and Denman for the GC, although I basically love all the horses running in that this year :D I'm easily pleased
