History was made on Saturday (6 April 2019) when the Gordon Elliott trained, Tiger Roll, ridden by Davy Russel, won the Randox Grand National for the second year in a row.
All eyes eagerly watched as Tiger Roll, ridden by Davy Russell, sailed home over the finish line to win the first Randox Grand National back to back since Red Rum in 1973/1974. The Co. Meath trainer, Gordon Elliott, has added to his impressive career with three English Grand National winners including Silver Birch back in 2007, ridden by Robbie Power. Out of the Forty horses set out to take on the toughest test in National hunt racing, covering thirty fences and four and a quarter miles, eleven where trained by Gordon Elliott and 14 powered by Bluegrass Horse Feed.
