Grand National Winner for the mighty YEATS!

There were spectacular scenes on Saturday afternoon @aintreeracecourse when the Mrs Kirstene Hunter-bred Noble Yeats stormed to victory in the Gr.3 Grand National providing trainer Emmet Mullins and the Waley-Cohen family with a day they will never forget. Yeats has enjoyed another terrific season, which also includes Gr.1 wins from the likes of Flooring Porter at the #CheltenhamFestival, and he now looks set to secure his first sires’ championship.

Rachael Blackmore wins the Randox Grand National on Minella Times for Henry de Bromhead and JP McManus

Rachael Blackmore said her Cheltenham Festival had been “phenomenal” after becoming the first woman to be the leading jockey at the meeting.

The Irish rider had six wins, more than the entire British training contingent.

Blackmore, 31, was the first female jockey to win the Champion Hurdle, with Honeysuckle, and was second on A Plus Tard in the Gold Cup, which was won by Minella Indo.

“I can’t even comprehend being leading jockey – it’s crazy stuff,” she said.

“It’s phenomenal. It’s been brilliant. Henry de Bromhead is an incredible trainer. I’m just part of that team and getting on those horses.”
