Richard Johnson on the Grand National

Richard Johnson OBE shares his reverence for the Grand National in this interview with Betway. He gives us a play by play of some of his more memorable National rides over the years, including Celtic Abbey in 1997 (unseated at the chair – but going well until that point),  Edmond in 2001 (fell at fence one), ‘What’s Up Boy’s in 2002 (a close second!) and 2014’s Balthazar King (second again!). With high hopes and near misses over the years he explains what a 2019 Grand National win would mean to him. Can Rock the Kasbah (currently 16-1) do it for Richard Johnson?
