A fairly recent addition to the racing calendar, the race formed part pf the ‘Betfair Million’ – a promotion that offered a £1m bonus to the horse that won the Betfair Chase, the King George VI Chase and the Cheltenham Gold Cup. Kauto Star achieved the feat in 2006/07, and the star of national hunt also holds the record for most wins in the 3m1f and 125-yard event – four between 2006 and 2011. Despite the association with Betfair, the race is registered as the Lancashire Chase, which was originally run in Manchester in 1884.
