Tiger Roll: The Little Legend
Over the course of six memorable seasons Tiger Roll has entered not just the record books with his achievements on the racecourse but the hearts of the racing public too.
As great as his heroics at Cheltenham have been, it is his two wins in the Randox Health Grand National that set him apart. Success in the world’s most famous steeplechase is a singular achievement, but winning back-to-back renewals and emulating the legendary Red Rum has elevated Tiger Roll to a different level. He has become a household name and his owners Gigginstown House Stud, trainer Gordon Elliott and principal jockeys Davy Russell and Keith Donoghue play 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 story of one of the most popular racehorses of recent times.
