Welsh Horse Power - The Longest Wait in Welsh Sport
Wales may not have qualified for FIFA’s World Cup since 1958, nor beaten the All Blacks since 1953, but no Welsh trained horse has won the Grand National for over 100 years….it’s the longest wait in Welsh sport but things may about to change in the sport of kings….. These days Welsh trainers have earned their place at racing’s top table and in this series we celebrate their pursuit of glory.
In a mini series to help launch ITV Sport’s new horse racing coverage we follow Wales’ four most prominent trainers as they prepare for both Cheltenham Gold Cup and the Grand National and try to understand how they make it work, often against the odds. It’s a tough family way of life but at the end of the day a pure labour of love.
