Mister Malarky Grand National Wins

Mister Malarky has never won the Grand National.

They have never finished the race.

Mister Malarky spent the majority of his career under the care of Colin Tizzard, though he has moved across to be with Richard Bandey for the final part of it. He’s been involved in one Grand National, the 2021 running of the race in which he was pulled up at the 17th fence, a race he was never really travelling too well, and looked as though he didn’t really enjoy the experience of Aintree.

The horse was foaled in 2013 in Great Britain and went straight to the Colin Tizzard team, where he would begin his career. Chasing is where he really took his game to the next level and where he won the biggest prizes of his career.

Mister Malarky’s Early Years

Mister Malarky ran in national hunt flat races to start his career, making his debut at Exeter in January 2017. He would run in three of these races, failing to win any, showing that the trip of two miles was not really far enough for him to get involved.

The following season he would go hurdling, and eventually, on his third start, sixth overall under rules, he would get a win on the board, winning a Kempton novice hurdle. Further attempts would fall short, and the horse would not record another victory until going novice chasing in November 2018.

He won his first chase race, a novice handicap, and landed three of his first four starts over fences, he really took to them and thrived in that sphere. The final of those was the first big race win this horse would record.

Mister Malarky’s Big Race Wins

In February 2019, Mister Malarky would record his first big race win. This was a Grade Two novice chase at Ascot, the Reynoldstown Novice Chase, one of the biggest pre-Cheltenham novice chase races on the national hunt calendar, a race that many horses target.

He would head to Cheltenham after, finishing a good fourth in the RSA Chase, a Grade One often won by future Gold Cup horses.

His second big race win would come in February 2020, when Mister Malarky won a Grade Three handicap chase at Kempton en route to Cheltenham again, this time, he went to the Ultima Handicap Chase but was pulled up.

In December 2020, Mister Malarky would win his final big race, taking the Ascot Silver Cup, a listed handicap at the course, a staying test on bad ground over three miles which would eventually set him up for his shot at the 2021 Grand National.
