KATIE WALSH 3RD IN GRAND NATIONAL!
Huge congratulations to Katie Walsh on making the Aintree record books by becoming the most successful lady jockey to ride in the history of the Grand National when she finished third today to Neptune Collonges and Sunnyhillboy on her trainer father Ted’s SEABASS.
A thrilled Katie said after the race “I had an unbelievable spin. It was a fantastic experience. It was great to get round. I can’t believe its all over and I can’t wait to do it again. At the third last I was going okay. I pulled down my googles turning in and Barry (Geraghty) said to me “You’re not going too bad” but I knew then I wasn’t going to win. I was just delighted to be placed.” SEABASS was going well in the closing stages of the race but was beaten as the first two fought out a thrilling finish.
