Hogan's Height Grand National Wins
Hogan's Height has never won the Grand National.
Their best finish to date was in 2021 where they came 12th. They were ridden by Gavin Sheehan and trained by Jamie Snowden.
Hogan’s Height is a horse that has the special accolade of landing a win over the Grand National fences, though this wasn’t in the Grand National itself. Prior to running in the big race, he won the Grand Sefton Chase in December 2019 at Aintree, a race over a much shorter distance but one that uses the Grand National fences.
Foaled in 2011, the horse did manage to get into some of the bigger handicaps during his career, though he failed to really get up into graded company. He was trained by Jamie Snowden for his entire career and made many appearances over the Grand National fences, jumping was certainly a strong point of his.
We saw him run over the Aintree fences four times, winning the Grand Sefton while also running in the Becher Chase and the Grand National itself. It was the 2021 Grand National where we saw him on the biggest stage, completing the course and finishing in 12th position behind Minella Times.
Hogan’s Height Early Years
Hogan’s Height began his racing career placing in two Irish point-to-point contests before moving over to the UK and the Jamie Snowden team. He ran in one bumper, finishing fifth but was quickly switched to hurdles, as he needed to run over further.
He didn’t win over hurdles but came to life when he got the hang of chasing. He won three in a row, his third, fourth and fifth starts over fences, and two novice chase races before winning a novice handicap, to really kick-start his career.
Hogan’s Height Big Race Wins
With no wins at graded level, the biggest win of Hogan’s Height’s career came at Aintree, over the big fences, in the Grand Sefton Chase. This was an excellent handicap win, and he did it in style, demolishing the field to come home and win by 16 lengths, a really impressive performance.
