The Coral Scottish Grand National, Class 1, Grade 3
The Coral Scottish Grand National is simply the most valuable and most prestigious jumps race in Scotland which attracts a sell-out crowd to the track every April and is also the fourth biggest race in the UK in terms of betting turnover.
Run over four miles with 27 fences to negotiate up to 30 runners take part making this one of the great spectacles in British horse racing and in addition to the huge crowd on track more than a million viewers watch the Coral Scottish Grand National live on ITV.
The winner of the 2021 renewal was Mighty Thunder giving both trainer Lucinda Russell and jockey Tom Scudamore their first successes in the race.
In what was a terrific finish Mighty Thunder just got the better of Dingo Dollar in the final 100 yards to win by three quarters of a length.
Mighty Thunder joins the list of winners of this famous race which famously includes Red Rum who in 1974 became the first horse ever to win the Grand National at Aintree and the Scottish Grand National in the same year.
