Celebrations as Kinross trained horse wins Grand National

12 April, 2017, 04:24 | Author: Elaine Woods

Cause Of Causes was one of three runners in the race for McManus, who memorably claimed National glory with the Anthony McCoy-ridden Don't Push It in 2010.

The Lucinda Russell-trained gelding enjoyed a thrilling sprint down the home stretch, having battled with Cause Of Causes over the final few fences.

Cause Of Causes came second, Saint Are was third, in fourth place was Blaklion, and finishing fifth was Gas Line Boy.

One For Arthur, the first Randox Health Grand National victor trained in Scotland for 38 years and only the second from north of the border, will follow a carbon copy season next year when he tries to become the first back-to-back victor since Red Rum in 1974. It's the best feeling I've ever had - I can't describe it.

Russell's long-time partner and assistant trainer, Peter Scudamore, was champion jockey eight times but, famously, never managed to emulate his father, Michael, by winning the National.

It was the first Scottish-trained victor for 38 years and the fourth trained by a woman after Jenny Pitman, Venetia Williams and, most recently, Sue Smith.

For a fifth successive year, all 40 horses that took part in the race returned safe and well. "I can't quite believe it".

"I was lucky to get back in time - I want to thank Jack Berry House". We have a fantastic team behind us and I'm just so pleased.

He's improved every time. I asked the doctor if I'd be able to ride in the National - he smiled at me and said 'well at least it's a race that you're unlikely to fall off in!'

One for Arthur is trained by Lucinda Russell, whose stables at Milnathort have procuced hundreds of winners.

The word "team" is heard nearly as much as "Arthur" (as everyone calls him), and Russell stresses how important that ethos is, saying: "I'm getting all this publicity and I've got a nice new jacket that says winning trainer on it".

The 14-1 shot is owned by the Two Golf Widows - aka schoolfriends Belinda McClung and Deborah Thomson.

"It was an incredible day and a unbelievable experience for me as an amateur". Barry (Geraghty) said he gave him a great ride round there, but he just didn't get home.

"This is a fairy tale but for excellent medical care I wouldn't have made it", said Fox, 24. I felt we'd done everything we possibly could to get this horse here.
