The Grand National Winners List from 1839 to 2019

One of the greatest racing spectacles of the season is the Grand National. With Aintree cancelled in 2020, the virtual televised race did not give us the usual Grand National buzz that we all love. Of course, in 2021, The Grand National still hangs in the balance. One thing is for sure, Virtual, or streamed from an online casino, nothing beats the excitement of race day!

The Welsh rider, Potters Corner, had won the Virtual Grand National. This year, predictions have already started pouring in, with many Ante-Post bets taking place on who will grab the coveted trophy and become the winner of the major event!

It is one, if not the most bet on race in the horse racing calendar in the UK while millions of people up and down the country are glued to their TV screens to watch the big race. Even those who are not regular punters or those who prefer online sports betting place a bet on the race. Surely, with a packed field of 40 runners each year, there are plenty of horses for people to choose from.

Here, we take a look back at the history of the big race and run you through some of the famous winners of the event from over the years.

We have searched the leaderboards to compile the Grand National winners list from 1839 to 2020.

The Most Famous Grand National Winners

Grand National winners do not come any more popular than the great Red Rum. He is the most recognised winner of the race as he stormed to three unprecedented Grand Nationals in 1973, 1974, and 1977.

Don’t Push It’s 2010 success goes down in the history books as the great jockey AP McCoy’s first winner in the race after more than a dozen attempts.

Mon Mome’s win in 2009 defied the odds – almost literally – as the 100/1 shot was the biggest priced winner of the race for more than four decades, while he also stopped Comply or Die from making it back-to-back National wins.

The winner of the 1990 Grand National, Mr. Frisk, is currently the fastest winner of the race, completing the four-mile 514 yards event in a time of eight minutes 47.8 seconds.

Previous Grand National winners

Grand National winner 2018 & 2019 – Tiger Roll

Tiger Roll became the first horse since Red Rum to win back-to-back Grand Nationals as he stormed home to win by almost three lengths from Magic of Light.

Under the mount of Davy Russell again, Tiger Roll always looked to be travelling well and after moving to the front he found plenty to record the historic win.

His win in 2018 produced one of the most dramatic finishes in recent years as Tiger Roll and jockey Davy Russell held off a late charge from David Mullins and Perfect Company to ensure Russell won his first National at his 14th attempt.

In picking up the win, Tiger Roll – the smallest horse in the race – became one of the most complete jumpers of recent years, having  won over the minimum National Hunt trip of two miles in the Triumph Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival, to somehow win the longest race of them all.

Grand National winner 2017 – One For Arthur

One for Arthur became just the second Scottish success in the National, winning the race by some four-and-a-half lengths from Cause of Causes.

The win was memorable for former jockey Peter Scudamore, with his wife, Lucinda Russell, the trainer of One For Arthur. Also, As a jockey, Scudamore had tried, and failed to win the race in 13 attempts.

It was a remarkable achievement for jockey David Fox as well, who had suffered a broken wrist just a month before the big race.

The previous Scottish success came way back in 1979 when Rubstic claimed the victory.

Grand National 2021

In the 2021 edition, Cloth Cap stands at 14/1, followed by Any Second Now with 16/1. Last year’s prime favourite, Tiger Roll, is now 20/1. Winner of the Scottish Grand National winner, Burrows Saint will join the race as 16/1 as well.
