Rachael Blackmore becomes the first female jockey to win the Grand National.

Rachael Blackmore created history on Saturday, becoming the first woman to ride the winner of the Randox Grand National when completing a magical success in the world's most famous race aboard Minella Times for trainer Henry de Bromhead and owner JP McManus. The leading rider at last month's Cheltenham Festival, Blackmore continued her dream season when partnering the eight-year-old to a wonderful victory from Balko Des Flos, Any Second Now and Burrows Saint. In a watershed moment for the sport, Blackmore was at her brilliant best on 11-1 shot Minella Times, biding her time in the early stages before creeping into contention on the second circuit. The duo were in the lead over the last and and put daylight between themselves and their rivals coming to the elbow before holding on tenaciously for one of the most remarkable wins in the race's history. Victory also capped a remarkable season for winning trainer De Bromhead, saddling his first winner in the race with his sixth runner and after training the winners of the Champion Hurdle, Champion Chase and Gold Cup at the Cheltenham Festival, while it was a second win in the race for McManus after Don't Push It's triumph in 2010.

Grand National 2019 - Tiger Roll


Tiger Roll

J: Davy Russell

T: Gordon Elliott

Mid-division, in touch 16th, stumbled 25th and next, soon recovered, led between last 2 going well, drew readily clear, ridden out final 100yds (op 9/2)


Magic Of Light

J: Paddy Kennedy

T: Mrs John Harrington

Raced keenly, always prominent, blundered 15th (Chair), led 25th, ridden and headed between last 2, still upsides when mistake last, stayed on gamely but always held by winner



J: Ruby Walsh

T: Willie Mullins

Prominent, led 7th until 10th, leading when reached for 16th (water), headed next, led 18th, mistake 24th (2nd Valentine's), soon headed, ridden in 3rd after 2 out, stayed on same pace from last (tchd 9/1)

Tiger Roll makes history with second Grand National victory

Tiger Roll got an outstanding ride by Davy Russell and followed up last year's success in ready fashion. He had a 9lb higher mark this time around, but was actually 8lb ahead of the handicapper courtesy of his romp in the Cross Country at last month's Cheltenham Festival. Russell tracked main-market rival Rathvinden on the first circuit and one could tell six out he was confident. He did well to recover from a bad mistake four from home and once the runner-up hit the last went into a clear lead. As was the case last year, he seemed to idle up the run-in and it's hard to gauge just how much he had up his sleeve at the finish. Magic Of Light the only mare in attendance, ran a mighty race in defeat and would've given the winner a bit more to think about had she not met the last wrong. That wasn't her first notable mistake, but this was her first taste of National fences and the 8yo is fully entitled to come back and have another crack. Rathvinden, a previous 4m National Hunt winner, came back with a belated prep win in the Bobbyjo and was 5lb ahead of the handicapper. He was always up there, but despite being an 11yo this was just his second season as a chaser and he did get caught out at times by these new fences. On softer ground, he could well have emerged on top as the first pair were too speedy from the last and, all considered, he ran an absolute blinder.

Grand National 2018 - Tiger Roll


Tiger Roll

J: Davy Russell

T: Gordon Elliott

Mid-division, headway after 17th, rider lost iron briefly 19th, joined leader travelling strongly after 3 out, slight lead next, pushed 6 lengths clear reaching elbow, soon ridden, just held on, all out.


Pleasant Company

J: David Mullins

T: Willie Mullins

Mid-division, steady progress to track leaders 9th, led 18th, mistake and headed 2 out, soon ridden, every chance last, 6 lengths down at the elbow, rallied bravely final 120yds, just failed (op 28/1)


Bless The Wings

J: Jack Kennedy

T: Gordon Elliott

Mid-division, headway after 14th, tracked leaders 18th, close 3rd turning in, ridden between last 2, stayed on but soon held by front pair

Tiger Roll clings on for first Grand National success

There were 38 runners at the start and just 12 managed to finish, with plenty of casualties on the first circuit. The first four home were all Irish-trained and two pulled 11l clear, with the remarkable Tiger Roll just clinging on from the rallying Pleasant Company. The ground took its toll on some of the runners and Becher's had to be bypassed second time around due to a stricken jockey. A step up from both Tiger Roll and Pleasant Company, the former just a couple of pounds shy of the average level of the winner for the past ten years.

Grand National 2017 - One For Arthur


One For Arthur

J: Derek Fox

T: Lucinda Russell

Travelled and jumped well most of way, held up towards rear, steady progress from 19th, good headway after 3 out, challenging when jumped left and bumped 2 out, soon led, jumped left last, stayed on strongly, ridden out


Cause Of Causes

J: Mr J J Codd

T: Gordon Elliott

Mid-division, headway 25th, ridden disputing 5th after 3 out, every chance last, stayed on but held from before the Elbow


Saint Are

J: Davy Russell

T: Tom George

Tracked leaders, hampered 6th (1st Bechers), ridden in 9th after 3 out, stayed on very gamely from last, went 3rd towards finish

One For Arthur pegs back Blaklion to claim Grand National victory

A good edition of the race, as ever it proved eventful and saw only the second ever Scottish-trained winner of the contest in One For Arthur, who raced away with it on the run-in. Blaklion appeared to have opened up a winning lead racing across the Melling road but the field closed up on him and there were still five in with every chance taking two out. All 40 horses were reported to have returned safely.

Grand National 2016 - Rule The World


Rule The World

J: David Mullins

T: M F Morris

Chased leaders, blundered 4 out, headway next, close 3rd last, led last 150yds, stayed on well


The Last Samuri

J: David Bass

T: Kim Bailey

With leaders, led 26th, headed and no extra last 150yds (vet said gelding was suffering from post-race ataxia) (op 10/1)


Vics Canvas

J: Robert Dunne

T: Dermot A McLoughlin

Mid-division, blundered badly and lost place 6th (1st Bechers), mistake next (1st Foinavon), headway to chase leaders 16th (water), close 2nd approaching 2 out, upsides last, weakened last 100yds (op 66/1)

Second-season novice Rule The World wins rain-swept National

A top-quality edition of the race, with 19 of the 39 rated 150-plus, and they went a good gallop from the outset, soon being strung out. The rain had a significant effect on the race also, not suiting a fair few of the runners and obviously making it an even more thorough test of stamina. More of an old school National, 16 finished, with the first four well clear, and perhaps unsurprisingly the lower-weighted horses dominated. Remarkably it went to a horse who was a second-season novice and still a maiden over fences coming into the race.

Grand National 2015 - Many Clouds


Many Clouds

J: Leighton Aspell

T: Oliver Sherwood

Soon prominent, left in lead 5 out, 3 lengths clear soon after last, driven right out, held on towards finish (op 28/1)


Saint Are

J: Paddy Brennan

T: Tom George

Chased leaders, mistake 22nd (2nd Bechers), left handy 3rd 5 out, stayed on to take 2nd 2 out, kept on well final 75yds


Monbeg Dude

J: Liam Treadwell

T: Michael Scudamore

In rear, hampered 6th (1st Bechers), headway 4 out, stayed on well from 2 out, took 3rd last 100yds (op 50/1)

Many Clouds gives Leighton Aspell second consecutive Grand National win

The world's most famous steeplechase and a contest similar in quality to the 2014 running. The time was much faster than the previous two runnings over this reduced trip, and Leighton Aspell became the first rider since Brian Fletcher on Red Rum in 1974 to win the race in successive years. The Canal Turn was bypassed on the second circuit.

Grand National 2014 - Pineau De Re


Pineau De Re

J: Leighton Aspell

T: Dr Richard Newland

Mid-division, headway when hit 13th, chasing leaders 16th (water), led approaching 2 out, drew clear run-in


Balthazar King

J: Richard Johnson

T: Philip Hobbs

Prominent, chasing leaders 4 out, driven next, 2nd at last, stayed on same pace (op 16/1)


Double Seven

J: A P McCoy

T: Martin Brassil

Mid-division, mistake 5th, headway to chase leaders, driven approaching 2 out, 3rd last, kept on same pace (tchd 14/1)

Pineau De Re overcomes early mistakes to surge to Grand National victory

The ground was Good to soft, good in places on the National course. One of the classiest recent renewals of the most famous steeplechase in the world, evidenced by the fact that last year's winner, who was not bottom weight then, would not have got a run this time, and with the weights headed by a pair of multiple Grade 1 winners.

Grand National 2013 - Auroras Encore


Auroras Encore

J: Ryan Mania

T: Sue Smith

Tracked leaders, mistake 10th, hit 4 out, stayed on to lead last, driven out (trainer said, regarding apparent improvement in form, that the gelding appreciated the better ground and the greater distance.)


Cappa Bleu

J: Paul Moloney

T: Evan Williams

In rear, headway and in touch 16th (water), lost place 19th, headway 23rd (2nd Foinavon), 5th and outpaced approaching 2 out, hard ridden and stayed on run-in, took 2nd near finish



J: Nick Scholfield

T: Rebecca Curtis

Chased leaders, led 23rd (2nd Foinavanon), headed 26th, led 2 out, headed last, kept on same pace (op 12/1)

Shock as outsider Auroras Encore gallops to Grand National victory

As the course had been modified on safety grounds and the handicap has been compressed, the most famous race of the jumps season has attracted better horses as recent results testify - the last three winners were all rated 150 or above - while the previous seven winners' ratings averaged out at just over 140. Another modification was that the start was moved away from the stands, to reduce the distance to the first fence and also cut down the crowd noise that the horses had to endure, which resulted in the race being run over half a furlong shorter than in recent years. The changes seemed to have a positive effect as they got off to a first-time start, there were no fallers until the Canal Turn. It paid to race close to the front as only the runner-up came from off the pace.

Grand National 2012 - Neptune Collonges


Neptune Collonges

J: Daryl Jacob

T: Paul Nicholls

Mid-division, headway 17th, chasing leaders 4 out, 3rd last, went 2nd last 100yds, stayed on to lead post



J: Richie McLernon

T: Jonjo O'Neill

Held up in mid-division, headway 9th (1st Valentines), soon tracking leaders, led elbow, headed post



J: Ms K Walsh

T: T M Walsh

Tracked leaders, slight lead 2 out, headed elbow, no extra (op 11-1 tchd 12-1)

Neptune Collinges pips Sunnyhillboy at the last in tight National finish

The world's most famous steeplechase once again attracted a maximum field, and a series of modifications to the course had seen the race attract increasingly high-class performers, as can be seen by the official ratings of the last three scorers. The trend was further emphasised by the presence of the previous month's Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Synchronised. However, his chance was not helped when he propped and unseated the champion jockey on the way to the start before cantering off. He was quickly caught and appeared none the worse after being checked over. Sadly though his race did not last long as he departed at Becher's first time with fatal results. This was a terrible postscript to the race and the revived sad memories of the last time a Gold Cup winner fell fatally in the National, Alverton, who was ridden by Synchronised's trainer, back in 1979. The race produced the closest finish in many years with NEPTUNE COLLONGES getting up in the last stride to collar Sunnyhillboy, in the process becoming the first grey to win the race since Nicolaus Silver back in 1961. A top-class chaser at his best back in 2008-2009, winning three Grade 1s in Ireland and finishing in the frame in successive Gold Cups, NEPTUNE COLLONGES had shown this season he was still capable of running big races, being closely handicapped with Giles Cross on Haydock form. He was behind early but gradually crept into contention on the second circuit and galloped on stoutly up the run-in to just nose ahead on the line. A real star for connections, despite being overshadowed by stable companions Kauto Star and Denman, this was a fitting climax to his career, as his owner had announced beforehand that this would be his last race.

Grand National 2011 - Ballabriggs



J: Jason Maguire

T: Donald McCain

With leaders, led 3rd, headed next, led 15th (Chair), blundered and headed 6 out (2nd Valentines), led next, stayed on well run-in (op 16-1)


Oscar Time

J: Mr Sam Waley-Cohen

T: M M Lynch

Tracked leaders, chased winner after 2 out, challenging elbow, kept on same pace (op 12-1)


Don't Push It

J: A P McCoy

T: Jonjo O'Neill

Mid-division, headway 6 out (Valentines) hit 3 out, 5th next, stayed on to take modest 3rd elbow (op 11-1 tchd 12-1 in places)

Ballabriggs battles bravely to claim victory in a relatively slow Grand National

The ground had been drying out all week and only limited watering was possible overnight, causing the ground to ride on the fast side and the time was well under standard. For the first time, fences were omitted in this race, the 20th and 22nd, which was due to be Becher's second time. Very few got into the race having been held up, and BALLABRIGGS, who was in front jumping the water, kept galloping to score in really game fashion, enabling Donald McCain to emulate his father in winning the race. A progressive chaser who won the Kim Muir at the 2010 festival off top weight, he had won twice over hurdles this season before being beaten by Skipper's Brig on his return to chasing. He really took well to the fences and was in the firing line throughout, only losing the lead on the second circuit when making a mistake and pecking at Valentine's second time. He was in front again soon after though and battled on gamely having been there to be shot at all the way up the straight. Unsurprisingly, he was exhausted after the race and was quickly dismounted, but will no doubt be given plenty of time to recover.

Five Iconic Grand National Winners

Red Rum

Red Rum was the first and only horse to win the Grand National three times and is arguably the most famous Grand National winner of all time. He first won the Grand National in 1973 and successfully defended his crown in 1974 which propelled his name in the history books as one of only a handful of dual winners of the race. In 1975, Red Rum managed only second in the Grand National and again was denied victory in 1976 finishing runner-up for a second consecutive year. The third Grand National title looked destined to elude Red Rum until the Ginger McCain-trained thoroughbred did the unimaginable and finally won a third Grand National in 1977, a feat not yet replicated.

Peter Simple

The average age for a Grand National winner is nine years old, but Peter Simple broke the trends by becoming the oldest Grand National winner of all time in 1853 at age 15. On the other end of the spectrum, there are five horses who share the title for the youngest horse to win the Grand National which goes to show how difficult it can be at an old age.

Golden Miller

The only horse to have ever won both the Cheltenham Gold Cup and Aintree Grand National in the same season is Golden Miller in 1934. Plenty of horses have contested both races, very few have come close to landing either prize, but only one has managed to win both in the same season. The Gold Cup is run over 3m2½f and requires horses to run at pace over a significant trip, whereas the Grand National is run over 4m2f and places emphasis on stamina for horses running over the marathon trip. Golden Miller won the Gold Cup at Cheltenham for five years straight, but only managed to land the Gold Cup-Grand National double once, breaking the Aintree Grand National course record at the same time. He finished unplaced in his four other attempts in the Grand National.


Horses generally have longer careers in National Hunt racing compared to Flat racing, but Manifesto took that stat one step further by setting the record for most Grand National runs at eight. His first run in the Grand National was in 1895, aged 7, when he managed to place 4th in the race and his last appearance was in 1904 when he finished 8th, aged 16. In his eight attempts, he won the race twice and placed a further four times. A true veteran of the Grand National, and one whose name will forever live in the history books as one of seven dual-Grand National winners.

Tiger Roll

The Gigginstown-owned Tiger Roll is one of the most popular Grand National winners in recent times. Having been bred for the flat he was eventually sold by Godolphin to Gigginstown House Stud and resided in Ireland, trained by Gordon Elliott. He won a remarkable five races at the Cheltenham Festival as well as landing the Aintree Grand National in 2018 and 2019 before being thwarted of a hattrick in 2020 by the cancellation of all sports due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We will never know if Tiger Roll would have ran in the race, or if he would have won but very few horses capture the hearts of the public and he will long live in the history books as one of the best horses to win the Grand National.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who won the 2020 Grand National?

Due to the coronavirus the Grand National was cancelled in 2020. Instead, a virtual version was run on the same day and was ‘won’ by Potters Corner. The profits from the race raised over £2 million for NHS charities.

Who won the 2019 Grand National?

The 2019 Grand National was won by Tiger Roll, trained by Gordon Elliott and ridden by Davy Russell. Tiger Roll was the first horse since Red Rum in 1974 to win the race for the second successive year, and cemented his position in the history books. While it was the trainer's third win in the race after 2007 winner Silver Birch, it was the jockey's second victory in the historic contest. Magic of Light was second, Rathvinden third, and Walk In The Mill fourth. Anibale Fly was fifth, a year after finishing fourth in the 2018 renewal.

Who came last at the Grand National?

Not all horses complete the four-and-a-half mile round trip of the Grand National with some horses falling at the fences, or simply pulling up having been outpaced or getting tired. The first horses to depart in the 2018 renewal were Perfect Candidate and Blaklion who lost their jockeys at the first fence, while the same obstacle saw Vintage Clouds fall in 2019, bringing down Up For Review in the process.

How many horses have won the Grand National more than once?

There have been seven dual-winners of the Grand National since the race was first run in 1839. The latest to do so was Tiger Roll who won consecutive Grand Nationals in 2018 and 2019, the first horse to achieve such a feat since Red Rum who won the 1973, 1974 and 1977 renewals. Others to land the Grand National prize more than once include Reynoldstown (1935 & 1936), Poethlyn (1918 & ), Abd-El-Kader (1850 & 1851), The Colonel (1869 & 1870) and Manifesto (1897 & 1899).
