Nallen: It was incredible

Tipperary handler John Nallen has enjoyed a dream month with the horses that he has produced through point-to-points, with Saturday’s record-breaking Aintree Grand National success of Minella Times following hot on the heels of the Cheltenham Gold Cup victory of Minella Indo.
Both are graduates of the Clonmel hoteliers point-to-point academy and remarkably the pair were both picked up at the same sale right back at the Tattersalls Ireland November Sale in 2013.
Following Saturday’s momentous victory Nallen joined Darren Frehill on RTÉ Radio 1’s Sunday Sport to tell the story behind both successes, including how the horses came to be named, his method of buying his horses as foals and his history with the Blackmore family.
