One For Arthur 'will bring new people to Scottish racing'

One For Arthur and jockey Derek Fox win the Grand National

Horse racing in Scotland is preparing for a boost in popularity after a first Scottish-trained Grand National winner for nearly 40 years.

Musselburgh Racecourse chief executive Bill Farnsworth expects new people to attend meetings after witnessing One For Arthur’s win on Saturday.

“We do expect some people who haven’t been racing before and watched One for Arthur win the Grand National on Saturday might think they want to go along and enjoy a day at the races,” he told BBC Scotland.
