2017 Grand National winner One for Arthur to miss jumps season

One For Arthur

The 2017 Grand National winner One For Arthur is to miss the whole of the upcoming jumps season with a leg injury, says trainer Lucinda Russell.

He became only the second Scottish-trained winner of the race as he was ridden to victory by jockey Derek Fox.

But the eight-year-old is now suffering with a tendon problem in his right fore and will not attempt to repeat his Grand National success next April.

“It’s not a big injury, but it’s enough for us to stop with him,” said Russell.

“It’s obviously a shame, but hopefully we can get him back to full fitness.”
