<br>Best Mate was my all-time favourite but I do believe that Kauto Star has the potential to surpass what he acheived. Maybe he won’t win 3 Gold Cups as you need absolutely everything to fall right but as long as he stays sound it’s going to be a glorious career.
People think that he was a bit of a slow boat but if Best Mate had been trained as a 2-miler (but for Edredon Bleu he may well have been), I believe that he could have won a Tingle Creek as well.
You can’t argue with 3 Gold Cups but if he’d have been campaigned more boldly, I think he would have had a much better legacy than he does.
