Grand National Anorak

Where they Finished 1970 -

You may be interested to know that my party piece (yes even anoraks get invited to parties...occasionally) is that if you name a Grand National runner I can tell you where it fell, pulled up, refused etc...Sometimes I can even tell you where it finished. Whilst the fallers etc are all committed and stored to some dark recess in my memory I am not  so accurate at recalling the finishers. 

Perhaps this is because I haven`t yet listed them on this site. So for the first time I celebrate the finishers. In a unique year by year format we celebrate the finishers from the gallant runners-up spot to the unique twenty third place. Now if you have ever wondered who finished ninth in 1983 then this is the page for you (it was Colonel Christy......but you knew that already.......didn`t you ?)

An asterisk after the horses name denotes that it only ran in the National once so has a 100% completion rate.
