They never ran in the race .This is a virtual race for horses that won the race .

I went Lescargot first he ran twice won it and finished second also won  Gold Cup makes him on paper the best horse ever to have run in it never mind win it .Second Tiger Roll two from Two .Third red rum 3 wins 2 seconds he has to be in the first 3 then you pick your fav i went Corbiere I could of went Party Politics it was a toss up .I think the race will be shown live on the BBC on Saturday .

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

Won an irish National but never went to Aintree for the Grand National.

Must be wikipedia or similar where anybody can log in and change details.
