Tizzard is unstoppable as NATIVE RIVER lands the Welsh National
The unstoppable team Tizzard landed the dream result with the November National Hunt Sale graduate NATIVE RIVER making all to impressively win the Grade 3 Welsh National at Chepstow following up on his most recent success in the Grade 3 Hennessy Gold Cup.
It's been a dream Christmas for Colin Tizzard with yesterday's 1-2 in the Grade 1 King George VI Chase with August National Hunt Sale graduate THISTLECRACK winning and Derby Sale graduate CUE CARD finishing a respectable second along with Derby Sale graduate ROYAL VACATION's win in the Grade 1 Kauto Star Novices' Chase, both at Kempton.
By Indian River and out of the Be My Native mare Native Mo, NATIVE RIVER was sold as a foal at the 2010 November National Hunt Sale by his breeder Fred Mackey for €6,000 to John Dineen.
