Following the announcement regarding Kauto Star released this morning:-
“Tragically Kauto Star sustained an injury whilst out in the field last week. He fractured his pelvis and lower neck. Unfortunately on Saturday he deteriorated despite intensive medical treatment and hospitalisation.
In the horses best interest the decision was made on Monday to euthanise Kauto Star.”
My heartfelt condolences go out to Clive Smith, everybody will miss him and our sympathy goes to his adoring public, which never ceased to take opportunities to see him at his public appearances since his retirement.
It was an absolute privilege for myself and my team to be part of his retirement and he will be missed beyond belief.
