GOOD LUCK TONTO

"Silver By Nature"
Oils 20x24
Commission
Good luck in running today to Tonto (aka Silver By Nature) and his connections Geoff and Joyce plus team Russell and not forgetting Angie who cares for him when he's at home. Tonto is running at Haydock today in the Totesport.com Grand National Trial (which he won last year) and although carrying top weight he's been showing he's back to form on the gallops. The weather is wet which will also suit him and the going is reported as heavy. I love this 'silver ghost' to bits and will be watching the race all 3 miles and 4 furlongs with my heart in my mouth. Safe home big lad.

Your painting has done true justice to a handsome lad. I hope he does well in the race today, too.
