Sir Alex Ferguson brags 'always nice to win on Merseyside!' after £140,000 Grand National Festival winner

April 7, 2022

MANCHESTER UNITED legend Sir Alex Ferguson celebrated an epic win on Merseyside as his horse won at Aintree.

The former Red Devils boss, 80, was celebrating after his horse Clan Des Obeaux claimed victory in the Betway Bowl.


And the 13-time Premier League winner could not resist a pop at United’s former rivals Liverpool as he basked in the 13/2 victory afterwards.

He said: “We couldn’t believe the price!

“It's a fantastic performance, well done.

“The King George… the ground was too heavy, really slow. He’s always been a good horse.

“We're delighted. It’s always good to win on Merseyside!”

Fergie, who enjoyed plenty of victories at both Liverpool and Everton during his days at Old Trafford, and his fellow owners Ged Mason and P K Barber, scooped a £140,000 prize after Harry Cobden rode Clan Des Obeaux to the win.

Remarkably, it comes just a year after the Scot enjoyed another whopping opening day of the festival.

He celebrated his best treble since 1999 after landing a massive £169,000 payday at the Grand National Festival.
