Harvey Smith said: “I sat watching the whole race and didn’t miss a beat. When he came away after the last I thought ‘eh we are in now’.

Nick Townsend meets a National contender
Sunday 28 March 2004

Sue says 'I don't wake up and think, God... Harvey Smith! We're a team. We work together'


The Interview - Sue Smith. A woman trainer with a famous best mate is making a name for herself in a man's world.


 



"Grand National helps Harvey Smith exhibit all the signs of a happy man."

Aintree joy for a blunt Yorkshireman 42 years after gaining notoriety for a very public V-sign

"Full marks to Aintree," he said, noting how few problems had been caused by the newly softened fences. "They've all worked hard, they've got the track safe. It's onwards and upwards now for the National."





Bingley horse racing trainer Sue Smith today became only the third female in history to train the winner of the John Smith's Grand National as 66-1 outsider Auroras Encore claimed the Aintree spectacular.






JUMPS TRAINERS' CHAMPIONSHIP
Aintree Three Day Grand National Meeting.

Nicky Henderson
Prize-Money
£2,797,097 (Two million, seven hundred and ninety seven thousand, and ninety seven pounds)

Paul Nicholls
Prize-Money
£2,283,175 (Two million, two hundred and eighty three thousand, one hundred and seventy five pounds)

 
Henderson's title

NICKY HENDERSON is now assured of the trainers' title after his rival Paul Nicholls failed to win any prize-money in Saturday's John Smith Grand National. With £975,000 on offer, the big race was effectively Nicholls' last chance to try to close the gap.

There are three weeks of the season remaining, but not sufficient big races left for Nicholls to mount a counter challenge.
 
Scoop6 punts are whit-less
"NOT one Scoop6 punter made it anywhere near the Grand National yesterday, the bet falling over when Solwhit took the Liverpool Hurdle writes Andrew Scutts.
"With a 22-1 winner in the opener, followed by a 28-1 winner in leg two, the chances of the Scoop6 being won looking slim from the off. Victory for Universal in leg three sent two tickets through to the fourth, but neither was on Solwhit, meaning £95,487 rolls over in the win pot, while the bonus fund stands at £156,991.
"Next weekend's bet will be worth around £350,000," said totepool spokesman Andrew Griffiths.
"A total of £146,930 was bet into the pools yesterday, when there were 109 winners of the £269.50 place fund."



"THE FUN OF DRESSING UP TO GO TO THE RACES"
YES, YES, YES .... PADDY, WE HEAR YOU ....
 
"PADDY POWER'S pioneering zeal to keep coming up with new novelty betting ideas backfired on Friday when the bookmaker was forced to void its market on the designer of the best-dressed lady's outfit at Aintree, writes Graham Green.

 
"That's because Matalan style contest was, in fact, open not just to fillies but colts as well, and was won by a male racegoer Andy Champ, an engineering consultant from Fulham, London, Andy took the £5,000 ladies' day first prize of £5,000 donned in a smart morning suit, was visiting Liverpool to celebrate his stag party. Paddy Power spokesman Rory Scott said: "We voided both the dress colour and best-dressed designer markets because groom-to-be Andy won the competition. But we have paid out on brown as the winning hair colour."

Day 5
No hot pants allowed at Royal Ascot

 
Live on Saturday  from Aintree Ch4 Morning Line Tanya Stevenson (Punters Champion) introduced us to Rory Scott from Paddy Power. The bookies certainly cashed in at Aintree when outsider Team Smiths' AURORAS ENCORE partner RYAN MANIA kicked away to win the Grand National by 9 lengths.

Bob Champion: raised £12million

The Flat race, which will also bring out ten-time Irish champion Charlie Swan and eight-time British champion Peter Scudamore, is being staged to raise funds for the Bob Champion Cancer Trust, which was founded in 1983 and has raised £12 million.
Champion, who this year completed a fundraising tour of British racecourses, said: "The 1981 Grand National was a remarkable day, not just for me, but for all of those around the world who gained hope from my victory in their personal battles against cancer. "Thirty years on, I want to continue to reduce the odds against cancer with the money this race raises."
