Congratulations to Lucinda Russell – St George’s student from 1971-1983

lucinda russell one for arthur 250wLucinda has been the premier National Hunt trainer in Scotland since 2009/10 and has trained over 500 winners.  

On Saturday 8th April 2017, One For Arthur, a horse trained by Lucinda, swept to victory in the Grand National at Aintree.  

A quote on Lucinda’s website (Arlary House Stables) states: 

‘The race is won or lost far from the crowds; behind the lines, on the gallops, in the yard, in the sun, the rain, the snow, long before the glory.’

We know this is true but hope that all are now taking a few minutes (especially One For Arthur) to bask in the glory and enjoy such a tremendous achievement.
