William Hill salute Kauto Star

King George VI Chase sponsors, William Hill, acknowledged the great achievements of Kauto Star, following the sad announcement that he has been put down.

A 16-time Grade 1 winner, Kauto Star will perhaps be best remembered for his amazing five career wins in the King George.

“Kauto Star was a true legend and the shining star of Boxing Day for the last decade – not only in his magnificent five William Hill King George VI wins, but also in his public appearances every year since his retirement. It’s hard to see another horse ever achieving what Kauto Star did in his career. His appeal was so enduring that people would still flock to meet him and it’s desperately sad that we won’t see him again,” said William Hill’s Jennie Prest.
