"I don't feel male or female right now. I don't even feel human."
Those were Rachael Blackmore's word while she was still onboard Minella Times.
She had just become the first female jockey to win the Grand National.
It followed Blackmore's red-hot run at Cheltenham during which she had guided six winners home.
Balko Des Flos was second ahead of Any Second Now and Burrows Saint.
There were no fans at the event, but still plenty of cheers for Blackmore when she reached the winners' enclosure.
