Betfair Chase History
The Betfair Chase is a Grade 1 National Hunt Steeplechase ran at Haydock Park. It is ran over a three mile distance with a total of 18 fences across the course for it’s competitors to overcome. It has been ran every year since 2005, and is open to all five-year-old horses and up. This is the first Grade 1 event of the British National Hunt season, attracting only the finest horses, jockeys and trainers to this one.
The Betfair Chase, which is registered as the Lancashire Chase, was formerly the first part of the Betfair Million scheme. This scheme was dropped in 2010 but originally gave the opportunity for the winner of the Betfair Chase to win a sum of £1,000,000 if they were to go on to win both the King George VI Chase and then the Cheltenham Gold Cup or the Lexus Chase. Later in the 2008/9 season any first-three finisher had the chance of winning this prize fund if they were to come first or second in the Cheltenham Festival and then winning the Grand National.
Kauto Star is the most successful horse over the race’s relatively short history, with four wins overall in 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2011. Kauto Star’s jockey on the first three of these triumphs, Ruby Walsh, holds the record as the most successful jockey in this race as a result. Walsh has actually won the Betfair Chase on four separate occasions, the first three with Kauto Star, and more recently on Silvianaco Conti in 2012. Silvianaco Conti and Kauto Star are two winners here who have both been trained by the record holding trainer in this event, Paul Nicholls. Nicholls has managed to train an astonishing six of the ten horses to have ever been triumphant in this one.
Since Kauto Star won this race in the second year of its running in 2006 for Nicholls, the trainer has never lost two Betfair Chase’s consecutively. Robert Alner in 2005, Peter Bowen in 2008, Nigel Twiston-Davies in 2010 and Colin Tizzard in 2013 are the only occasions that the trainer from Lydney, Gloucestershire has been unsuccessful. Kauto Star also holds the record for the oldest horse to have ever won this one, aged 11. Surprisingly he too, along with Silviniaco Conti, is the youngest horse to win this one, both were six-years-old when they first won.
