Who is the best King George winner of all time?
Kauto Star is going for a fourth consecutive King George on Saturday and is obviously a very good horse, but this isn't a vintage era and he hasn't had to beat much and this year's renewal looks like another soft race. Best Mate was, and still is, an underrated horse, who should have won two KGs, but AP gave him a poor ride one year and he somehow managed to get beaten by Florida Pearl. Desert Orchid was an exhuberant front-runner, who ran much more often than either KS or BM, and against better horses, but he still managed to win three KGs and, in my opinion, he will always be the 'King of Kempton'.
My top 3 would be; 1- Desert Orchid 2-Kauto Star 3-Best Mate
