Haydock Park and Betfair are launching a search to find the recently retired Kauto Star's biggest fan.

Kauto Star: Are you his biggest fan?

Whether it be naming your first born "Kauto", dying your hair purple, yellow and green or painting your car in the Kauto Star colours all forms of dedication will considered by the judging panel!

In fact the more extreme your devotion the better!

Whoever is judged to be Kauto Star's biggest fan will receive a fantastic prize of a day out at the Betfair Chase on Saturday 24 November, with a three-course lunch in one of the top restaurants for themselves and a guest, as well as the chance to be in the paddock when Kauto Star parades before racing.

Finally, and we have saved the best until last, the winner will have the chance to meet the legend himself and be photographed with him.

To enter simply email the team at the address below and explain why you deserve to be crowned Kauto Star's Biggest Fan.

A decision will be made in the week of the Betfair Chase and the winner notified by email. Photos, videos, poems, letters and all other forms of entry will all be accepted. Entries close at 12 noon on Wednesday 21 November.

The Betfair Chase Festival takes place at Haydock Park on Friday 23 and Saturday 24 November, featuring the Betfair Chase on the Saturday, a race that Kauto Star won four times in his career, including his emotional 2011 victory. This year's renewal is set to be just as thrilling, with a top class field entered, including former Gold Cup winners Long Run and Imperial Commander, Cue Card and rising stars such as Silviniaco Conti.
