THE WORLD WATCHED
The ultimate race of the year, the Randox Grand National returned on Saturday 10 April 2021.
Another day, another piece of history. The sensational Rachael Blackmore rewrote the history books yet again, this time becoming the first female jockey to win the Randox Grand National.
And, while most of the focus was on the world’s greatest steeplechase, the seven race card at Aintree offered plenty of quality racing throughout the day too.
We saw the brilliant Shishkin maintain his 100 per cent record over fences for Nicky Henderson and Thyme Hill make up for his absence at the Cheltenham Festival last month by taking the Ryanair Stayers’ Hurdle. Then of course it was time for the big one.
