Description

Best Mate, by winning three successive Cheltenham Gold Cups between 2002 and 2004, emulated the achievement of the legendary Arkle and secured his place in racing history. With jockey Jim Culloty and trainer Henrietta Knight he formed an irresistible partnership that was taken to the hearts of not just the racing public but the nation as a whole. Anne Holland weaves a fascinating story about how Best Mate left behind the fields of County Meath to come to Henrietta Knight's stables at Lockinge where she and husband Terry Biddlecombe trained him to so many famous triumphs.show more
