Grand National

Today we are looking back on the Grand National from the weekend with Noble Yeats landing the 2022 feature race for trainer Emmet Mullins and amateur jockey Sam Waley-Cohen.

Noble Yeats became the first seven year old post World War II to land the 4m2f event and what made the race extra special was that rider Sam Waley-Cohen was having his last ride in the sport, retiring after that ride.

A race that saw unfortunately two horses pass away, with Eclair Surf and Discorama suffering fatal injuries, overall it was a race of great passion and saw 15 horses finish.

The Grand National is a race that nearly everyone in the UK watches and gets behind regardless if you are a racing fan or not and today we are celebrating Noble Yeats's victory.
