Grand National

Then, now, and forever—the Grand National is one horse race that has stood the test of time. In the United Kingdom at least, it’s gone beyond being “just a horse race,” as it’s now a national pastime that has more than enough horsepower to stop the nation.

Dating back to 1839, history is certainly on the side of this legendary event. So if you watch one horse race across the Atlantic this year, then you best make it the Grand National.

What’s put the Grand National on the global stage is the fact that it represents one of the most grueling, hard to win, stamina-draining horse races in history. Across 2½ furlongs, any horse that wants to romp home to victory needs to best the Canal Turn, St. Valentine’s Brook, the Chair, Bechers Brook and other legendary fences—most of which have hobbled countless thoroughbreds.

The winner’s list at the Grand National is stacked with legendary names. But, unlike other big-time races, the script at the Grand National can often go right out the window. Needless to say, countless outsiders have bashed the bookies to win big over the years.

With a wide and varied field in play, big horses, small horses, and everything in-between have won the race in the past. Understanding the ups and downs of the Grand National isn’t always easy though, but that’s why we’re here to help. The following looks at the previous winners of the biggest horse race in Great Britain… and arguably Europe too.

Grand National 2019 results

There is simply no doubt about it, the Grand National lives up to its name of being the world’s greatest steeplechase. Every year excitement is guaranteed, with the 2019 incarnation of the race being no exception. Anyone that saw the race knew that eyes were locked on one horse in particular in the build-up—Tiger Roll.

The Gordon Elliot-trained horse had its eye on making history, joining the elite club of horses to have won not only the Grand National twice, but doing so in back-to-back years. Not shying away from the achievement, bets flooded in, with his amazing victory costing bookmakers upwards of $300 million. His short 4/1 odds—some of the shortest odds for a favorite in Grand National History—should have told any punter all they needed to know. Tiger Roll was destined to win this race and etch his name into the Grand National history books, becoming the first horse since Red Rum to achieve the impressive feat. Will he line up for a third time in 2020 and make it a hat trick? Only time will tell.

Looking at the rest of the field, the Grand National saw a whopping 19 of the 40 runners finish—a huge number even by modern-day terms. Sadly, there was a tragic moment during the race, as Up For Review suffered a fatal injury after falling at the first fence.

Tiger Roll’s closest rival during the race was the always dependable Pleasant Company, who was within a shout of winning until he tumbled at the 27th fence. As far as outsiders are concerned, it was Magic of Light that upset the apple cart; at 66/1 he finished second, slamming the form book in the process. Filling out the best of the rest, Ruby Walsh rode Rathvinden to take fourth, while Gold Cup runner-up Anibale Fly finished fifth and One For Arthur pinched sixth.

The old saying goes that good things come in small packages and that’s certainly the case with Tiger Roll. His victory in the 2019 Grand National was written in the stars, and for this pint-sized horse there could be more to come. In fact, many believe that he could go three for three at the Grand National 2020… should he run, that is.

Grand National winners

Since its first race all the way back in 1839, Grand National winners haven’t just been stirring up excitement among punters, they’ve been writing their names into British folklore. The first horse to claim the crown was Lottery, ridden by jockey Jem Mason. Lottery—a fitting name for a racehorse—set the tone for what was to come. Over the nearly 180 years that followed, some legendary horses would conquer the 2-mile plus track to win it all.
