Lord Gyllene

Lord Gyllene (born 10 November 1988) was a New Zealand bred racehorse whose greatest victory came in the 1997 Grand National at Aintree.[1] He was trained by Steve Brookshaw for owner Stan Clarke and ridden by Tony Dobbin. He was retired by his owner in 2001 due to injury. He had a race record in the UK of 13 runs: won 4, second 5 and third once, as well as two wins in New Zealand.

The victory of Lord Gyllene is remembered as much for the circumstances surrounding the bomb threats and re-staging of the Grand National on the following Monday, as for his win itself.
