RACING: Breisner plans for Kauto

First published in Sport

Yogi Breisner admits it is unlikely Kauto Star will develop into an Olympic-class dressage horse following his retirement from racing.

The British eventing national coach, who lives at Thame, is to assist European bronze medal eventing rider Laura Collett in preparing the dual Cheltenham Gold Cup hero for the new discipline at her base on the Membury Estate in Wiltshire.

But he said: “If a horse is going to reach Olympic level, they really need to start their education when they are young, sort of four or five-year-olds.”
