  • Description

    THE WINNER OF YESTERDAY'S GRAND NATIONAL STEEPLECHASE AT AINTREE, JAY TRUMP, RETURNED TODAY (SUNDAY) TO HIS TRAINER'S STABLES AT LAMBOURN IN BERKSHIRE, UK.

    FOR FRED WINTER, THE HORSE'S ENGLISH TRAINER, THE RACE WAS A TRIUMPH.WINTER, WHO RODE THE 1957 AND 1962 WINNERS IN THE RACE, IS IN ONLY HIS FIRST SEASON, AS A TRAINER.

    THE COUGHING EPIDEMIC, WHICH SWEPT MANY BRITISH STABLES, HIT HIS ESTABLISHMENT IN LAMBOURN THREE WEEKS AGO, BUT JAY TRUMP WAS ISOLATED WHEN IT FIRST APPEARED, AND ESCAPED THE INFECTION.

    AFTER THE FINISH OF THE RACE, WINTER WAS REPORTED TO HAVE SAID: "I BELIEVE THAT TRAINING THE GRAND NATIONAL WINNER IS A GREATER THRILL THAN RIDING ONE."
    JAY TRUMP, AN AMERICAN HORSE, WAS RIDDEN BY AMERICAN AMATEUR TOMMY CROMPTON SMITH FOR THE OWNER, MRS MARY STEPHENSON, OF CINCINATTI.IN A THRILLING FINISH, JAY TRUMP BATTLED IT OUT WITH FREDDIE TO WIN BY THREE-QUARTERS OF A LENGTH.

    JAY TRUMP'S VICTORY IN THE STEEPLECHASE BROUGHT MRS STEPHENSON PRIZE MONEY OF GBP22,041, A RECORD FOR THE RACE.THE AMERICAN HORSE AND RIDER CAME TO BRITAIN LAST SUMMER WITH THE GRAND NATIONAL AS THEIR TARGET.
