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

Thats RED Rum .Dessie never ran in the British National .
