Grand National 2018

Grand National 2018

This year we hosted another fantastic Grand National – the Sheep Grand National that is!

The weather was kind, the sheep were raring to go, and the jockeys were strapped on tight for today’s race. The BIG Sheep offered some great odds across the flock on who’d win, Red Ram (Red) 7/4, Sheargar (Green) 4/3, Little Pullover (Pink) 7/1, Golden Fleece (Yellow) 8/1, Alderknitti (Blue) 9/2 and Woolly Jumper (Purple) 20/1.

But at the end of the day the fastest sheep would win and here’s how the race went down…

Congratulations to Golden Fleece on a fantastic win and tune in again next year for our next Grand National! If you can’t wait until next year we have daily sheep races at 3.50pm as part of our live show timetable – we hope to see you all very soon at a race day near you!
