Willie Carson, a five-time champion rider and former BBC TV racing analyst, purchased and has a stake in the Three Valleys horse. His son, Anthony, trains him at Newmarket, and he was ridden by his grandson, William. They are not related by blood but they are friends and partners.
They are both from Northern Ireland and they have been working together for many years now. They are very good friends and they have got along well because they are both quiet people who don't like all the attention that comes with being on top. They are both very humble guys and they enjoy what they do so much that there is no way they would stop even if they wanted to make some money. The fact is that they can't be bought so there is no point in trying.
Carson has never won the Grand National but he has finished second three times and third once. He also finished first in the Irish National but this was after a disqualification of another horse. However, he did win the Scottish National twice before it became a race open to horses of any age or breed.
