Kicking King is a National Hunt racehorse, trained in Ireland, by Tom Taaffe. He is best known for his victory in the 2005 Cheltenham Gold Cup, the major chase Chase run at the Cheltenham Festival. He also won the King George VI Chase in 2004 and 2005; once at Kempton and once at Sandown, when the race was relocated due to the development of an All-weather track at Kempton. He also came second two times at previous Cheltenham Festivals, once in the 2003 Supreme Novices' Hurdle and in the 2004 Arkle Challenge Trophy.
Since his successful debut in a National Hunt flat race, Kicking King has amassed more than £800,000 in prize money and has six Grade One wins to his name.
