And he produces a mare to win for the first time in half a century. So, what’s his secret
Team NAF supported trainer Christian Williams delivered a masterclass in training when he took the top two places in the Coral Scottish Grand National last Saturday (2 April) with Win My Wings and Kitty’s Light.
Under jockey Rob James, Win My Wings cruised to a seven lengths victory ahead of stablemate Kitty’s Light ridden by Jack Tudor. Kitty’s Light also finished strongly, ending up five lengths clear of the rest of the field.
The 1-2 victory cemented Chistian’s growing reputation as a top trainer of staying chasers. He won the Midlands and Welsh Grand Nationals with Potters Corner.
He also earnt praise for producing a mare to win last Saturday’s big race, Win My Wings being the first to take the prize in 51 years.
What’s the secret?
Christian’s yard, Ogmore Farm, is on the outskirts of Ogmore-by-Sea in the Vale of Glamorgan. It’s a beautiful and tranquil place.
Using the natural surroundings of the beach, the dunes and the river, Christian takes a hands-on, holistic approach to training racehorses.
On his partnership with NAF, he said “NAF have been on board with me from the start, we have a great relationship and they are very much part of the team.
“I can rely on them and their team of nutritionists and vets to provide the best advice and products to support my horses throughout their careers.”
Christian feeds a number of products from across the NAF supplements range including NAF Racing products Clean Wind, Gastro Form and Rapid Recovery.
Five Star Oestress is also a staple part of the diet of each of the mares on the yard.
Extending congratulations to the connections of both horses, the team at NAF said: “We have forged a strong relationship with Christian and his team and are delighted to have played a role in these fantastic successes.”
