Much-loved Monet's Garden the star turn on Liverpool parade

Monet's Garden: Aintree favourite heads RoR parade
1 of 1

Five-time Aintree winner Monet's Garden will return to the course for the Retraining of Racehorses parade, which will take place on the Friday before racing.

At 12.40pm the gallant grey will parade alongside an array of former stars such as Denman, Cinders And Ashes, Peddlers Cross and the mercurial Mad Moose.

Regular rider Joey Richards, daughter of trainer Nicky, said: "He's 19 now but you'd think he was a five-year-old, he's never changed, he's never aged. He's always been a real showman, even throughout his racing career, and that's why I thought showing would suit him.

"I was five months pregnant when we won the class at Aintree and so he was carrying two passengers that day. He's amazing, the horse of a lifetime. He would have done any job, he's very talented and he's got that enthusiasm to want to be the best in whatever he does."

Di Arbuthnot, chief executive of RoR, expressed her gratitude for the sponsorship of the Peter O'Sullevan Trust: "Sir Peter's voice will forever be associated with the Grand National, so it is great to maintain his connection with Aintree. He was a fervent supporter of horse welfare and would have enjoyed seeing these horses parade."
