The Wonders Of Welsh Racing

In this current era of remarkable success for Welsh racing, several notable achievements stand out. Geoff Lewis's triumphs alongside Mill Reef in the early 1970s, Sirrell Griffith's remarkable victory with Norton's Coin at 100/1 in the Cheltenham Gold Cup in 1990, and Carl Llewellyn's highly accomplished career in the saddle from 1990 to 2005, which included victories in the Welsh, Scottish, and Aintree Grand Nationals (twice). Since then, Welsh racing has consistently grown and flourished.
