From el BBC (http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/other_sports/horse_racing/8433711.stm)..



The 20-1 chance won the 60th Welsh National at Chepstow to complete a remarkable return to racing following career-saving stem-cell surgery.

.....

The Welsh horse, who made his jumps debut in November 2004, had enjoyed a host of top four finishes and four wins before suffering a career-threatening injury at the 2008 Grand National meeting.

He severed a tendon in a leg - an injury that could end a horse's career - in a handicap hurdle at Aintree but was rescued by stem cell surgery.

Dream Alliance completed a remarkable comeback by winning the Welsh National after 18 months recovering from his horrific injury.
Now Davies and his syndicate of bailiffs, tax consultants, garage owners and barmaids is targeting the Grand National for their amazing horse.
