Description
This official double DVD tells the story of Best Mate and those involved with him, including trainer Henrietta Knight, jockey Jim Culloty and owner Jim Lewis.

Best Mate quickly became the 'People's Champion' following his successive Gold Cup victories at Cheltenham in 2002, 2003 and 2004. His first race win in Britain was also at Cheltenham in 1999. It was therefore fitting that a ceremony, following his tragic death at Exeter on November 1st 2005, was held at Cheltenham on December 10th.

Best Mate had become the first horse since Arkle in the 1960's to win three successive Gold Cups. He then established himself as the most popular race horse in Britain since Desert Orchid. A burst blood vessel meant that he was unable to defend his crown at Cheltenham in 2005. But, despite looking in great condition, Best Mate sadly Best Mate died during his seasonal return at Exeter.

This programme offers an insight into a wonderful, and much loved race horse.

Disc 1 tells his life story, whilst Disc 2 is a record of his National Hunt races.
