2002 Grand National
Bindaree an eight year became the second winner of the Grand National for trainer, Nigel Twiston-Davies after a battle royal up the run in with Whats Up Boys, trained by Phillip Hobbs. The two went well clear of the field after the last but it was Bindaree at 20/1 who held on the better to win by just under two lengths. Twiston-Davies had won the race with the great Earth Summit in 1998.
Bindaree went on to contest the Grand National a further three times, but never faired better than the sixth place he achieved the following year behind Monty's Pass. Race favourite, Blowing Wind had to be content with third place again after being third in 2001, while Kingsmark with Ruby Walsh on board was fourth with Supreme Charm fifth.
