Comply Or Die - 2008 Grand National Winner

With this week supposed to be about the big build up to perhaps the greatest race in the world, the people’s race, the Grand National I thought it would be appropriate to look back at one of the winners of the great race from Pond House – Comply or Die. 

A 1999 born gelding, son of Old Vic and dam Madam Madcap, Comply came over from the Costello family in Ireland as an unraced, un-named three year old in May 2002.  Champion owner David Johnson used to recruit a lot of his horses from Mr Costello and many of his very good horses over the years came from this source.  He was in training the following season but never ran as he needed a bit more time to mature and we knew he was a special horse.
