“What an epic day at the Cheltenham Festival. I’m such a lucky girl to canter Kauto Star in front of the stands.”
Past heroes of the racetrack returned to Cheltenham to parade for fans on the first day of the 2015 festival.
Kauto Star paraded with Denman also a Gold Cup winner along with four-time World Hurdle winner Big Buck’s, who is now enjoying a second career hunting, as well as Blazing Bailey, Comply Or Die and Jack The Giant.
The Retraining of Racehorses (RoR) parades were introduced in 2008 by the charity to showcase the adaptability of racehorses when retrained for a second career. They are now an established part of the major jump racing festivals at Cheltenham and Aintree, as well as featuring at British Champions Day at Ascot in October.
