Prince William and Kate send a special message to Grand National 2022 winner Sam Waley-Cohen.

On Saturday, April 9, Sam Waley-Cohen rode to victory on Noble Yeats at the Randox Grand National at Aintree. Taking to social media the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared a special message. They congratulated their close friend on his win. Soon after the race jockey Sam announced his retirement.

On social media, Kate and Prince William commented: “Huge congratulations to @swaleycohen for winning the Grand National.”

The royal couple went on to add: “What a way to retire!”

Speaking after the race Sam stated: “He ran for me! He couldn’t go the early pace and I just found a pocket to give him a bit of space to run into. As soon as I asked him, he went.”

The jockey thought he had made his move too early and revealed: “I’ve gone too early! When I pulled him out and asked him he gave me way more than I expected. As soon as he picked up I thought: ‘he’s gone, he’s got this!’.”

Sam went on to add: “It’s ridiculous. I have to say thanks to Dad as he’s supported me unwaveringly and lovingly when others said: ‘put someone else on’.’ It’s a day Liverpool comes out and shows its love and I travelled on goodwill.”
