Gordon Elliott Takes USA Grand National In New Jersey

The weekend saw a lot of good flat racing and many fantastic memories made at Ascot that will be talked and remembered for years to come but there was also some jumps racing that caught the eye over in America in there version of the Grand National.

English and Irish raiders were sent over in the plenties and it was the Gordon Elliott trained runner Jury Duty with the on board jockey of Robbie Power that flew home to win very easily.

This tops off a treble now for Gordon Elliott in Grand Nationals this year after taking the big one at Aintree in April with Tiger Roll just getting his nose in front to take one of the biggest race in the world and the Irish national with General Principle.

This is not the first time Power and Elliott have won a Grand National together as they did it with Silver Birch in 2007 at Aintree but this one is just as Special as Jury Duty came home with plenty left in the tank to snatch the prize of $450,000 in New Jersey.

Other British and Irish raiders that performed well was Patrick Mullins on board Tornado Watch who came a valiant second and Hinterland formerly with Paul Nicholls and Nicky Henderson finished fourth.

Stablemate to the National winner Jury Duty was Clarcam who's recent Galway Plate Win was let down by his less than impressive eighth in the big one on the weekend and another raider was Hammersly Lake Who could only finish one place better in seventh for Charlie Longsdon.

(Credit Racing Post) Elliott on Sunday said:"Jury Duty did it well. It was a good pot and we brought him over as he is difficult to place at home due to his high rating over fences.

"He's going home but Clarcam ran poorly, as he had done on his previous two starts in the US, and he will be continuing his career over here."
