With the Grand National 2010 just over a week away I thought it might be a good idea to have a look at some selections from a different perspective so I’ve had a quick look at which sires have been most successful win and place in the Grand National in the last ten years.
I have to admit this is not an area I know much about so perhaps I could open up the info to our knowledgeable blog users and they could inform any new readers if there are sires with Grand National Runners we should be looking out for.
In the past ten years four sires seem to stand out for win and place purposes:
Montelimar and Roselier are not represented this year but Supreme Leader is represented in 2010 by a number of leading fancies. He has been responsible for two placed horses in the last ten years – former Welsh National winner Supreme Glory and 2002 runner-up Whats Up Boys. His progeny running this year include
Can’t Buy Time
Un Desperado also managed to get two different horses placed in that time in Philson Run and Nil Desperandum. He is represented in Grand National 2010 by Maljimar.
Don’t Push It
It would be great to have some input on sires this year that could be successful and generally which sires are the best to look out for in these long distance chases.
Thanks a lot
