History made as Rachael Blackmore wins the Grand National on Minella Times

Minella Times has won the Randox Grand National at Aintree for jockey Rachael Blackmore and trainer Henry de Bromhead at 11-1.

Blackmore’s win in an annus mirabilis for the rider marked a first success for a female jockey in the world’s most famous steeplechase. 

Minella Times’ win was also a remarkable one for de Bromhead, who saddled a one two in the race, with 100-1 outsider Balko Des Flos filling the runner-up spot. 

Any Second Now was third for trainer Ted Walsh, with Willie Mullins’ Burrows Saint finishing fourth to complete a clean sweep for Irish-trained horses.
