Grand National 2016 Results, Winner: The annual horse racing competition / championship got over. It was a highly anticipated and awaited event which took place yesterday. Rule The World won the Crabbie’s Grand National race at the Aintree ground which got soften by the rain. (see: Sardaar Gabbar Singh collections.)



Steadily running on the field, The Last Samuri and Vics Canvas made the jump altogether after the champion. The Last Samuri tried its best but couldn’t clinch the title. The Gigginstown House Stud-owned gelding eventually crossed the line six lengths ahead of 8-1 joint-favourite The Last Samuri.

Vics Canvas was declared third at 100-1 while Gilgamboa came fourth with 28-1.

Mullins said: “It’s unbelievable. I just couldn’t expect things to have gone better. There was one little mishap at the fourth-last, but thank god I came out (the other side). Everything went to plan really.

“Credit to Mouse, he’s produced this horse without having won over fences. Then there’s me, who’s never even walked around the Grand National track.

“Mouse is a genius and he’s the best man in the world for preparing a horse for one day.

“I’m very thankful to Michael and Eddie O’Leary (of Gigginstown) for giving me the chance.

“That’s the best ride I’ve ever got off a horse and it’s the best feeling to come back into a place like this.

“It was just brilliant.”

Morris got lost in the speech after the race. Later on, he paid tribute to his late son, Christopher, who died last year due to carbon monoxide poisoning when he was travelling in South America.

Morris has already won the Irish National on Easter Monday 2016 with Rogue Angel.

He said: “I don’t know what to say. To have the two in a couple of weeks is unbelievable. I’ve a lad who’s doing overtime for me up above. He (Rule The World) wasn’t badly named, was he?”

As usual, the race wasn’t a drama with the well-fancied Holywell parting company with Richie McLernon at the second fence, while dual King George winner Silviniaco Conti was pulled up.

Many Clouds won in the event last year. However, this time, it lost the chance of continuous victory in the row after making a bad mistake which cost him ultimately.

Only 16 out of the total 39 runners managed to get round. However, all the horses returned safely.
