Princess Anne meets Grand National hero Corach Rambler during visit to Scotland – Royal Central

Usually it is the royals themselves who are the star attraction, but not on Monday at Kelso Racecourse.

Hundreds of people gathered at the track in the Scottish Borders to catch a glimpse of 2023 Grand National winner Corach Rambler on his homecoming tour of Scotland.

Among those to have made the journey was the Princess Royal.

Corach Rambler, who is trained in Scotland by Lucinda Russell, won the world’s most famous horse race on Saturday.

After jumping 29 fences and defeating 38 rivals, the nine-year-old gelding returned to Scotland for a homecoming tour.

On Sunday, Miss Russell opened up her stables for a celebration, with hundreds of people turning out to congratulate the horse and connections.

The tour continued on Monday, with Corach Rambler being received by Princess Anne at Kelso Racecourse.

The Princess met the horse in the parade ring whilst a ripple of applause occurred from the crowd.

Corach Rambler is only the third Scottish trained horse to win the Grand National in the race’s 175 year history.

He is Lucinda Russell’s second Grand National winner, with the trainer also winning the race in 2017 with One For Arthur.
