Five time winner of the King George,  ‘Kauto Star’ has been put down after sustaining a neck injury and a complex fracture to the left side of his pelvis as the result of a fall in his paddock on Wednesday.

The Clive Smith-owned superstar was hospitalised and given intensive medical treatment at the Valley Equine Hospital in Upper Lambourn with the team working hard over the weekend to try and save his life but he was put down at 3pm on Monday, in the presence of Smith and veterinary assistant Hattie Lawrence, when his condition deteriorated.
