Voy Por Ustedes

Voy Por Ustedes (Foaled 26 April 2001) is a ultra consistent French-bred chaser owned by Sir Robert Ogden and trained by Alan king and formally by Gerard Macaire in France.

The horse made his debut when unseating his rider in a 3 year old hurdle at Compeigne in France in September 2004 and raced 4 more times in France before being transferred to the Alan King yard and Voy Por Ustedes made his English debut at Lingfield on the 11th December 2004 and again unseated his rider in a grade 2 novice hurdle.

He ran in four more times over hurdles in the 2004/05 season winning once at Huntingdon and ran for the final time over hurdle at Ayr in April 2005 when 3rd to Admiral who would go on to win the 2006 Chester Cup.

Vor Por Ustedes made his chasing debut at Warwick on the 5th November 2005 and won in impressive style and procedded to win three more novice chases at Plumpton Warwick and Wincanton before Winning the Arkle Chase at the 2006 Cheltenham festival Defeating Monets Garden. His final run of the season was at Aintree but lost his unbeaten record over fences when finishing 2nd to Foreman.

His 1st run of the 2006/07 season was in the Grade 1 Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown but he was easily brushed aside by Kauto Star but still ran well to finish a clear 2nd. His won his next race at Kempton in December before unseating his rider at Newbury but made up for that slip up when winning the Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.

That was his last run of the 2006/07 season but was more aggressively trained in the 2007/08 season and finished 2nd in desperate conditions at Cheltenham in Nobember 2007 before again finishing 2nd to Twist Magic in the Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown.

He then went on to win the Desert Orchid Chase for the 2nd time at Kempton then compleating his preparation for the 2007 Champion Chase when a well beaten 2nd to Master Minded at Newbury.

There wasn't to be a 2nd victory in the Champion Chase as Master Minded put up one of the most impressive performances of all time when slamming Voy Por Ustedes By 19 lengths though Voy Por Ustedes still finished 16 lengths ahead of the 3rd horse and possibly put up a better performance than when winning in 2007.

He gained his revenge over Master Minded when running away with the Melling Chase at Aintree in what was his first run over 2m4f and the step up in trip obviously brought out considerable improvement. This was his last run of the 2007/08 season and the trainer has mentioned the possibility of steping him up in trip even further in the 2008/09 season and a crack at the 3m King George VI Chase though this would be a mammoth task with the distinct possibility of a rematch with Kauto Star who has won the race the last 2 years
