Jury Duty leads home Irish 1-2 in Grade 1 $450,000 American Grand National

The 13-10 favourite Jury Duty gave Gordon Elliott and Robbie Power a famous victory in the Grade 1 $450,000 American Grand National at Far Hills, New Jersey, on Saturday evening, leading home an Irish 1-2 in the race.

The Emmet Mullins-trained Tornado Watch, who battled with the eventual winner down to the last fence, was three-and-a-quarter lengths back in second, with All The Way Jose in third.

Among Jury Duty’s rivals for American National Hunt racing’s biggest prize were his stablemate Clarcam, Ben Pauling’s Jaleo and Charlie Longsdon’s Hammersly Lake and Hinterland, along with Days Of Heaven, formerly trained in Britain by Paul Nicholls and Nicky Henderson.

The Co. Meath trainer has already won the Aintree Grand National with Tiger Roll and the Irish Grand National with General Principle this season.
