It appears that bookmakers will be counting the cost of One For Arthur's Grand National win this Saturday, as Scotland gains its first Aintree champion stud since Rubistic in 1979.
The Lucinda Russell-trained, Derek Fox-mounted horse overtook the heavily-backed 8/1 favourite Blaklion in a dramatic finish that left Cause of Causes (16/1) second and Davy Russell's Saint Are (25/1) in third.
"That was wonderful, I'm tearful but it is fantastic", Russell, whose partner and assistant at their Arlary House Stables in the Kinross countryside, is former champion jockey Peter Scudamore.
"It was an fantastic day and a unbelievable experience for me as an amateur".
"There will be injuries and, occasionally, unfortunately there are fatalities, but the care and attention bestowed on these horses is absolutely second to none and in Britain we do it better than anywhere else". "We can't have any complaints and we just bumped into one on the day". Those numbers have won a total of eight Grand Nationals over the period, four each, with Neptune Collonges being the latest horse to win with either number (4). He is up 3lb today but two of the horses behind him last time were winners on their next start and Nathan Evans gets a useful 3lb allowance.
SCOTTISH racing fans were enjoying a betting bonanza last night after the country's first Grand National win in 38 years.

He said: "It was quite a good result for us in England, but we are pretty sure it's not going to be a good result for us in Scotland".
Fox returned to action only on Wednesday, three days before the National. I said it's for Scotland, but it's really for the team and the yard. He just jumped so well and never missed a fence.
"I had a tinge of envy when AP McCoy finally rode a National victor (Don't Push It in 2010) but life goes on", said Scudamore. For a brief moment I took a pull.
"He [One For Arthur] won't run again this season, I'm hoping Kelso will put an open handicap on in October then it will be the Becher and back to Warwick I'd imagine".
He added: "The racecourses here in Scotland, they are the best administered, the best racecourses I've ever come across". Arthur just cruised that race, Derek rode so well and I'm just a bit lost for words really. He's only 24. He didn't get flustered - he's got a great attitude.
