The bookies were celebrating as Auroras Encore won the 2013 Grand National at Aintree.
Rory Jiwani of StanJames.com said, “There were more then a few nerves shredded in the office as Teaforthree moved ominously into contention.
He and Imperial Commander were the only big losers in our book but 66/1 shot Auroras Encore swept past under Ryan Mania to the delight of us bookies.
“Many congratulations to Sue and Harvey Smith on training a Grand National winner but the best news of all is that there were no injuries to horses or jockeys. It was a superb race which will hopefully allay fears about the future of the National.”
Congratulations to Winning jockey Ryan Mania, horse Auroras Encore and trainer Sue Smith.
Certainly fooled us.
