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.

So Grateful won for the first time in his career at Southwell in July 2002, recording the first win for the Mick and David Easterby Racing Club and followed up at the same venue in August.
