Thanks for the link, Joe.
Young Hustler was one of my favourites. Unlike many top class jumpers he didn’t mind firm ground and ran up a sequence of novice chases in (if I remember rightly) a dry winter. Grand sort that helped put Twister on the map. Trainer right about the weights not favouring top weights in the Grand National in those days. One of only two carrying more than 11-00, 5th and trying to give a stone to Gold Cup runner-up Rough Quest. Young Hustler a great leper racing prominently and so tough… Seemed at one point he was running every week. All that didn’t stop him training on and holding his form well. Great to hear the old Hustler is still with us.
