Tiger Roll wins back-to-back Grand Nationals to emulate Red Rum

(CNN)Tiger Roll may have been the pre-race favorite at the Grand National but not since 2005 had the favorite won what is arguably the world's most famous jump race.

Fourteen years later, though, the nine-year-old -- the smallest horse in the field -- came through with a late burst at Aintree to emulate the legendary Red Rum's achievement of 45 years ago.
"Hard to put into words," legendary jockey AP McCoy, who rode more than 4,000 winners, told ITV.
"What an amazing little horse. He has such an amazing heart and has an amazing will to win."
