John, a racing man? Arkle won it in 1964. Dessie won it in '73, '74, and '77, was runner up in '75 and '76.

What year did Desert Orchid win the Grand National?
Born on 3 May 1965, the bay gelding achieved a unique treble by winning the Grand National in 1973, 1974 and 1977. He was also runner-up in 1975 and 1976 in the notoriously difficult race, described as the “ultimate test” for any racehorse.May 30, 201
