Grand National News – 24th March

by Aidan Elder | March 24, 2011

Grand National News
King Midas was delighted with how his bed-pan turned out

The racing world has switched it’s attention to the flat, so here’s today’s surprisingly brief summary of all the news in the build-up to the Grand National.

– Having a quick glance at the sports section of TotallyJewish.com – easily our favourite round-up of Jewish sports news – we see that Gold Cup winning jockey, Sam-Waley Cohen is now aiming for success in the Grand National. Waley-Cohen is likely to partner Oscar Time at Aintree and even though the race offers one of the biggest pay-days of the National Hunt season, he’s not bothered about missing out on a potential windfall. “Ultimately I race for the love of it – it’s not for the money. Besides the money I would have won goes straight back into developing racing so everyone’s a winner,” he said from behind the big pile of money he already has from his family’s massively successful dental practices.

– If the fact that we’re checking out TotallyJewish.com for our Grand National news wasn’t enough of a clue that it’s a slow news day, now we’re rehashing a story that wasn’t especially interesting to begin with. Kalahari King is still being aimed at the Melling Chase, which is what we knew earlier this week. Setanta

– And finally, in a bid to make some extra money, jockeys are being allowed to sell their asses. Well, in the interests of clarity, we should say the space on their asses. The Professional Jockeys Association have approved a deal to allow advertising on the bum region of jockeys’ jodhpurs which should make marketing to jockeys on crap horses towards the back of the field and perverts alike somewhat easier.
