THERE was a huge outpouring of joy after One For Arthur landed the 2017 Randox Health Grand National at Aintree. A leading fancy for the race, the son of Milan was a worthy winner and his victory was certainly celebrated down in Co Kilkenny.

John Dwan, a member of an eminent family in the bloodstock sector here in Ireland, owns Ballyreddin Stud and it was there that he produced this now eight-year-old son of Milan from the Trempolino mare Nonnetia. The dam was raced in France by Antoinette Kavanagh of Kildaragh Stud and she won over jumps there as a three-year-old.
