Ballabriggs wins Grand National at Aintree

BY foxsports • April 9, 2011

Ballabriggs won the grueling Grand National steeplechase on Saturday, finishing ahead of fellow 14-1 shot Oscar Time.

Ballabriggs is trained by Donald McCain, the son of Ginger McCain, who earned a hat trick of victories in the world-famous race in the 1970s with Red Rum.

Two of the 30 fences were bypassed after horses were treated during the 4 1/2-mile race at Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool.
