Tiger Roll: The Little Legend - The Complete Story

    Tiger Roll: The Little Legend - The Complete Story


    Over the course of nine memorable seasons, Tiger Roll entered not just the record books with his achievements on the racecourse, but the hearts of the racing public too. He burst onto the scene in 2014 with victory in the Triumph Hurdle at the end of his first season and he built on that success with four further wins at the Cheltenham Festival. As great as his heroics at Cheltenham were, however, it was his two wins in the Grand National that set him apart. Success in the world’s most famous steeplechase is a singular achievement in itself, but winning back-to-back runnings of the Aintree spectacular and emulating the legendary Red Rum elevated Tiger Roll to a different level. He became a household name and his owners Gigginstown House Stud, trainer Gordon Elliott and principal jockeys Davy Russell and Keith Donoghue played leading roles in this story. We have mined the unparalleled back catalogue of the Racing Post with its award-winning writers and photographers to recount the full story of one of the most popular racehorses of recent times. It is a unique story about a unique horse.
