Lucinda Russell awarded OBE in Queen’s Birthday Honours List

News of honour came as a ‘shock’

Up to £40 in bonus funds

Trainer Lucinda Russell has been awarded an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

Russell, who won the Grand National at Aintree last year with One For Arthur, gained the title for her services to horse racing.

Based at Kinross, near Perth in Scotland, Russell admitted she was taken aback when told of the honour.

“It did come as a shock, but it’s really nice to think that horse racing has been recognised, so the horse racing world has earned it,” said Russell.

“I just think it is nice to have racing on a public honours list, I think it is a measure of how far horse racing reaches out among the general public.

“It’s not just that race, I think it heightened awareness of racing in Scotland – we’re undergoing bit of a resurgence, which is nice.”

Among Russell’s other big-race wins are Brindisi Breeze’s success at the Cheltenham Festival and Silver By Nature twice landing the Grand National Trial at Haydock.
