The 2012 Cheltenham Gold Cup was won by Synchronised under a perfect ride from champion jockey after Kauto Star was pulled up.
The Cheltenham roar was deafening as the tape went up in the 2012 Gold Cup with the expectant capacity crowd hoping to see Kauto Star land a record third title. The double winner was, unfotunately, never travelling and had to be pulled up early in the race.
That left the race open for defending champion Long Run but Sam Waley Cohen's mount never travelled fluently and turning for home he didn't look the winner. That proved to be the case as champion jockey Tony McCoy produced Synchronised in the run to sweep past both both the favourite and the 50-1 outsider The Giant Bolster to claim a memorable Gold Cup victory.
1- Synchronised 8-1
2- The Giant Bolster 50-1
3- Long Run 7-4f
