2005 Grand National Winner Hedge Hunter

2005 Grand National

Won in great style by the Willie Mullins trained Hedgehunter who provided jockey, Ruby Walsh with his second winner of the race, after first winning the 2000 Grand National on Papillon. Hedgehunter was very well supported in both the Grand National antepost market as well as on the day and went off as the 7/1 favourite. His win produced one of the loudest ever cheers at Aintree with thousands of punters getting the better of the Bookmakers for a change.
