Kauto Star has made history by winning the 2009 William Hill King George Chase today at Kempton Park for the fourth year in a row.
The legendary Desert Orchid set the record to beat at four wins in five years and three wins in succession, but Kauto Star bettered that on Boxing Day by beating a top class field to win four in a row with jockey Ruby Walsh, trainer Paul Nicholls and owner Clive Smith.
Deep Purple’s odds for the King George VI Chase at Kempton Park have been slashed from 25/1 to 14/1 with event sponsors William Hill after winning the Totesport.com Peterborough Chase on Thursday.
The eight year old, trained by Evan Williams, could now head to the King George Chase on December 26 after his emphatic win over a strong field, under a 10lb penalty and after starting as a 12-1 outsider.
Following his impressive win in the Amlin 1965 Chase at Ascot on Saturday, Albertas Run is being considered for both the Peterborough Chase at Huntingdon and the King George VI Chase at Kempton Park.
It seemed like the 8 year old Albertas Run relished the 2m3f distance of the Amlin 1965 Chase and so his team is considering running him in the 2m41/2f Peterborough Chase, Huntingdon’s flagship race on December 10, before heading to Kempton Park on Boxing Day for the King George Chase.
