Nicholls confirms Kauto Star retirement
SOMERSET racehorse trainer Paul Nicholls has confirmed that Kauto Star, winner of two Cheltenham Gold Cups and five King George VI Chases, has run his final race.
Nicholls, of Manor Farm Stables in Ditcheat, near Castle Cary, described his and owner Clive Smith's decision to retire the legendary chaser at 12 years old as "the end of an era".
He said: "Ever since he won on his debut for me at Newbury on December 29th 2004, the horse has consistently proved himself a class apart. And a £1m Betfair Million bonus in 2007 and 16 Grade One wins later, who would bet against him going to Kempton in December and making it number 17?
"But sometimes, you have to listen to your head and your heart, and both told me that retirement was the only option."
