Mon, 11 Apr 2011


The Island's bookmakers have been counting the cost of the Grand National.


Ballabriggs - owned by Isle of Man based businessman Trevor Hemmings - took first place in the Aintree race on Saturday.


Bookies on the Island have reported paying out more than normal, as Manx punters were drawn to the Isle of Man connection.


It's the second time one of Mr Hemmings' horses has won the National.
