I appear to have won the Grand National.
Well, ok, the 100/1 pick in the sweepstake I got won in a shock victory.

You're not the only one. I saw a report claiming that the betting industry took home a profit of £200m from that 100 to 1 winner.

Well you did better than me. My works sweepstake let me have two horse and they both went out at the same fence.

Hope you got a decent amount :)

Bah. Mine was in the front three for most of the race and then fell back and collapsed on the final straight.... Only horse that didn't survive the race :/

Nice. My horse come in second. Knew I should have placed some outsiders as well.

I went for "Darkness" and "Hear the echo". They finished but not all that well. I won back in 2005 with "Hedgehunter" so 1 out of 2 Grand National wins isn't bad I guess.
