    Rachael Blackmore made sporting history by becoming the first female jockey to win the Grand National with victory on Minella Times at Aintree.

    The Irish rider scored an emotional triumph aboard the 11-1 chance, trained by Henry de Bromhead who also saddled runner-up Balko Des Flos.

    "I don't feel male or female right now. I don't even feel human," said 31-year-old Blackmore.

    Any Second Now was third, with Burrows Saint fourth.

    The 173rd running of the famous race provided a story for the ages as Blackmore won in the colours of owner JP McManus.

    Blackmore had already achieved a landmark success at last month's Cheltenham Festival when becoming the first woman to be the meeting's leading jockey.

    She demonstrated perfect poise and timing to guide Minella Times expertly round the 30 fences over more than four and a quarter miles for victory by six and a half lengths.

    There were no spectators at the Merseyside track because of Covid-19 protocols, but the historic moment was not lost on the jockeys, trainers and owners in attendance who cheered the pair back into the winner's enclosure.

    The 1-2 for De Bromhead sealed his own remarkable story, having won the Champion Hurdle, Champion Chase and Gold Cup at Cheltenham.
    Shalom

    3rd and didn't finish. I didn't do E/W on the 3rd, so no money for me and that'll be it until this time next year!
