A very nice well built three year old gelding, So Grateful is by Swiss Spirit out of Listed winner Bow Bridge. He is a homebred and was foaled at Norton Grove Stud and has lived at the yard since he was born, so we know him very well indeed.

He was named 'So Grateful' during lockdown 2020 as a thank you to the NHS during the Covid-19 pandemic.

So Grateful is a half brother to multiple winners Bowson Fred, Black Annis Bower and Towbee. He has run 8 times on the flat and has been placed once.
