Kauto Star (foaled 19 March 2000) is a retired French-bred National Hunt champion racehorse, who was trained by Paul Nicholls in Somerset and owned by Clive Smith.

Famous quotes containing the word star:

    Events, actions arise, that must be sung, that will sing themselves. Who can doubt, that poetry will revive and lead in a new age, as the star in the constellation Harp, which now flames in our zenith, astronomers announce, shall one day be the pole- star for a thousand years?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
