Long Run Wins Second King George VI Chase in Sprint Finish

Dec. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Long Run produced a sprint finish to take his second King George VI Chase at Kempton racecourse.

Trained by Nicky Henderson with Sam Waley-Cohen on board, Long Run had taken the lead with three jumps to go, only to be overtaken by Captain Chris. Long Run beat him in a sprint at the finish line. Grands Crus finished third. The King George is one of the biggest events in the U.K. jumps calendar.

Seven-year-old Long Run won the King George in 2011, and was runner-up to Kauto Star last year. Kauto Star, a record five-time winner of the King George, was retired in October at the age of 12.

Long Run had been the 15-8 favorite to win the race in the nine-horse field, meaning a $8 wager would yield $15 plus plus the stake.
