Mate rides into history
Best Mate made history when he galloped to a third consecutive
Gold Cup victory at Cheltenham.
The nine-year-old, who is trained by Henrietta Knight, joined an elite
list of horses to have claimed the honour.
The last to achieve the treble was the legendary Arkle, who won the first
of his three Gold Cups in 1964.
Best Mate, ridden by Jim Culloty, finished just ahead of second-placed
Sir Rembrandt and third-placed Harbour Pilot in a tight finish. more>>
