One For Arthur wins Grand National at 14-1

11 April, 2017, 06:40 | Author: Brian Mcdaniel

One For Arthur holds an entry in the Scottish Grand National at Ayr in a fortnight's time, but Russell all but ruled out bidding for a double last achieved by the mighty Red Rum in 1974.

One For Arthur became only the second Scottish-trained victor of the Grand National after a four-and-a-half-length victory at Aintree on Saturday.

Scudamore senior though could upset his 34-year-old son's dreams as his companion, trainer Lucinda Russell, has a live contender in One For Arthur.

Jockey Fox only returned to riding this week having broken a wrist and a collarbone in March.

"It's the best feeling I've ever had".

"We put an entry in just in case anything untoward happened at Aintree, but I think he deserves a big field now", the trainer told At The Races.

They have purchased Le Mercurey and Highland Lodge, who would give jockey Henry Brooke a fairytale win after a crashing fall saw him placed in an induced coma earlier this year, while their son Richard has bought Just A Par. Back then, One For Arthur was not even his ride.

Thomson said: "I just can't believe it".

For Deborah Thompson and Belinda McClung this was the most glorious vindication of their decision to buy a racehorse. I kept thinking barring accidents, he would win the National and he has.

Cause of Causes, under amateur Jamie Codd, managed to hold off the fast charging Saint Are, runner-up in 2015, whilst the favourite Blaklion was fourth giving the oldest jockey in the race, 41-year-old Noel Fehily, his first finish in the top four in 15 rides.

The 14/1 shot, ridden by Derek Fox, was the most popular horse in Scotland to back in the 40 horse race. For a brief moment I took a pull.

Ridden by Derek Fox, the Lucinda Russell-trained runner galloped on resolutely to keep Cause Of Causes at bay and clinch the world's greatest steeplechase, emulating Rubstic in 1979.

Russell, whose partner and assistant is former champion jockey Peter Scudamore, is the fourth woman to train a Grand National victor after Jenny Pitman, Venetia Williams and Sue Smith. With their partners spending most weekends on the golf course, they made a decision to get into the horse-racing business.

He's only 24. He didn't get flustered - he's got a great attitude.
