Jett Grand National Wins

Jett has never won the Grand National.

Their best finish to date was in 2021 where they came 8th. They were ridden by Mr Sam Waley-Cohen and trained by Mrs John Harrington.

Jett had himself a long and positive racing career, racing almost 50 times under rules for three different trainers, including for his owner Robert Waley-Cohen.

Foaled in 2011, he began life running in two-mile national hunt flat races and eventually worked his way up to running in the four-mile two-furlong Grand National over the biggest obstacles used in British racing.

His run in the Grand National came in 2021, a solid effort to finish eighth behind Minella Times, wearing the silks of Robert Waley-Cohen, and ridden by his son Sam Waley-Cohen to make this a family affair.

Jett’s Early Years

Jett began his racing career in Ireland, under the care of Jessica Harrington, and started off by running in national hunt flat races. He ran in four without success before moving to hurdles, and that switch proved to be an instant winner, as it was the race which landed him his first career success.

He won a maiden hurdle at Leopardstown before going up in grade and finding things very tough. A year later, he went chasing but didn’t initially take to that in the same manner. He would have to wait until his sixth chase start before he got a win over the bigger obstacles.

Jett’s Big Race Wins

Jett won twice in graded company, both of those came over the bigger obstacles, and while these were not huge races, they are the biggest wins from his career. The first of those was a Grade Two success at Fairyhouse in April 2019, winning the Devenish Chase by a winning distance of almost five lengths to land a nice prize.

That was followed up by a Grade Three success in October 2019 at Punchestown, where he landed the Irish Daily Star Chase by a short head in a thrilling finish.
