Saint Are recovering well after Grand National fall

Saint Are recovering well after Grand National fall

"She was a marvellous woman", said Russell. I thought I had it, but you're so nervous watching it. The horse is now a National victor in addition to having won three different Cheltenham Festival races.

Mr Clark, whose family firm have run Clarks the Bakers in Easingwold near York since 1925, has always enjoyed horse racing and once produced a special giant cake for the Sporting Life newspaper that was presented to Red Rum, to mark one of the horse's three Grand National triumphs in the 1970's.

If the number six was to win once more, that would mean Willie Mullins would be celebrating the success of Total Recall, who is a lively 14/1 contender for the Aintree showpiece.

The smallest horse in the field held off a late surge from Pleasant Company in one of the closest ever finishes in the historic race, which was watched by an estimated global television audience of 600 million.

"He probably did a little bit too much with me but I had to let him go after jumping The Chair - he just winged fences".

The 38-year-old, the oldest jockey in Saturday's race, said that he had already won the race a thousand times in his head before entering the starting gates on Saturday.

Russell travelled home to Ireland on Saturday night after his victory on the Gordon Elliott-trained horse at Aintree. He won the National Hunt Chase past year and the Cross Country Chase last month.

With this, the Lauryn Hill sampled smash becomes the 30th song to debut at the top spot of the Hot 100 chart. On Monday (April 16), the rap star hopped on Instagram to make the big announcement by way of photo.

'I was speaking to him the other morning and he's as tough as nails'.

"I've tried not to think about the race, to be honest", said Russell.

Leading owners Gigginstown House Stud, led by Ryanair supremo Michael O'Leary, won the National two years ago with Rule The World.

He said: "It's been an unbelievable training performance from Gordon to turn him from a Triumph Hurdle victor into a National victor".

For the second time in a couple of weeks, Elliott chinned old adversary Mullins in a National photo-finish and the only thing that could make the season any better for the Meath trainer is a first Irish trainers' championship.

The horse fell halfway through the race and a green tent was erected around it in front of anxious spectators.
