Tiger Roll Wins The Grand National For Davy Russell And Gordon Elliott

Tiger Roll Wins The Grand National For Davy Russell And Gordon Elliott

Davy Russell had been dreaming of winning the Grand National since he was a kid - and his dream finally came true when he rode Tiger Roll to a dramatic victory at a sun-drenched Aintree.

Trained by Betfair Ambassador Gordon Elliott, Tiger Roll was given a brilliant stalking ride by experienced jockey Davy Russell who always had the popular eight-year-old in a promising position. Tiger Rol has won the Grand National Steeplechase in a photo finish over Pleasant Company in one of the closest races in years at Aintree.

Bless The Wings, the winner's stablemate was third, and Anibale Fly was fourth, as Irish runners dominated.

"It's a wonderful event I love it so much, I've been coming here for years, hoping..." he said.

Remarkably, Tiger Roll, owned by Gigginstown House Stud, was also the victor of the Virtual Grand National, a computer-simulated running of the race broadcast on ITV last night.

"I'm very fond of this horse now - I'm thinking of adopting him as my fifth child!"

Sadly, two of the children were drugged with "a significant amount" of diphenhydramine, which is an ingredient found in Benadryl. A body that washed ashore Saturday had not been identified and authorities were reluctant to link it to the crash.

"He'd better keep him now".

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo after her win, Robyn said: "I went for the tiara as I thought that suited the dress the most".

One wrote: "I don't normally let my emotions get the best of me but f**k the grand national". He had a new baby last week, too.

"When we were coming in somebody said to us why don't you enter so I did".

It was a second major reverse at the hands of an Elliott horse in the space of a fortnight for Mullins, having seen his Isleofhopendreams beaten just a head in the Irish National.
