The horseracing community has been saddened to hear of the death of Kauto Star. The two time winner of the Cheltenham Gold Cup and five time winner of the King George VI Chase was humanely put down at the Valley Equine Hospital in Lambourn on Monday 30th June. Kauto Star had incurred fractures to his neck and pelvis in a fall when out in his paddock and despite receiving first class veterinary care and treatment his condition deteriorated over the weekend.
