2022 Grand National Results – Winners, Finishers & Fallers

The Grand National always delivers a memorable story, and it delivered two in 2022. Jockey Sam Waley-Cohen drew the curtain on his racing career by steering home 50/1 outsider Noble Yeats to win the 2022 Grand National. That was just half the story though, with Noble Yeats becoming the first 7 year-old horse to win the Aintree showpiece since way back in 1940. Recall all the drama and the Grand National 2022 results below.

2022 Grand National Review

Much of the talk leading into the 2022 Grand National was around Snow Leopardess. She had a foal during a two year break from racing, and was hoping to become the first grey to win the famous race since 2012 and the last mare since 1951. The hype only intensified after she came out on top in the Virtual Grand National, but it was actually another grey – Coko Beach – that set the early pace when the race got underway on Good to Soft ground.

Rachael Blackmore’s hopes of winning successive Grand Nationals on Minella Times were snuffed out relatively early, leaving Coko Beach out in front after the first circuit. By the time they headed into the second last, Longhouse Poet and Irish National winner Freewheelin Dylan joined Coko Beach at the head of the field, but all three were passed as the pace quickened and they finished 6th, 7th and 8th respectively. This left Any Second Now slightly ahead of Noble Yeats over the last fence, but it was Noble Yeats that came past by the time they reached The Elbow, securing a fairytale ending to Sam Waley-Cohen’s career.

Delta Work was a full 20 lengths further back in third, just ahead of Santini, with Lostintranslation the last of 15 to complete the course. Immediately after the race, an elated Waley-Cohen described his win as “a dream”, “a fantasy” and “beyond words” but insisted his decision to retire was final.
