Biggest Grand National Underdog Wins (100-1 winners)

We all dream of getting that big outsider win, but truly huge odds winners can be few and far between. Below is a list of the four 100-1 winners in Grand National history. Considering the first Grand National ever held was in 1839, it's clear that there is a needle in a haystack aspect to picking 100-1 shots in such a competitive race..

  • Tipperary Tim – 100/1. (1928)
  • Gregalach – 100/1. (1929)
  • Caughoo – 100/1. (1947)
  • Foinavon – 100/1. (1967)
  • Mon Mome – 100/1 (2009)

  • The 1927 and 1928 Grand Nationals were quite the combo, price-wise and of course mention has to go to Liam Treadwell, whose sad passing will in no way diminish his amazing achievement of riding rank outsider Mom Mome to victory in the 2009 Grand National.

    Sadly the 2020 Grand National was cancellation due to the ever depressing coronavirus, but if you're one for the long odds selections, I'm sure there will be one or two outsiders worth having a punt on in 2021. Just be aware that the more ambitious the selection, the longer you might be waiting the result you're looking for!
