West Tip (1977 - July 2001) was a racehorse who won the Grand National in 1986, ridden by Richard Dunwoody. He fell in the 1985 race at Bechers Brook on the second circuit, and finished fourth in 1987 and 1988, second in 1989, tenth in 1990, on each occasion he was ridden by Dunwoody. He was retired after the 1990 Grand National. 
In 1982, West Tip had been injured in an accident involving a lorry outside his stables, after which it was feared the horse would have to be put down.  He went on to win the National four years later.
