WATCH: Tiger Roll living up to his name and already enjoying retirement after Cheltenham
Legendary Irish racehorse and two-time Aintree Grand National winner Tiger Roll is already enjoying retirement back in Meath.
The Gordon Elliott-trained 12-year-old received a rousing send-off at Cheltenham on Wednesday where he finished second behind stablemate Delta Work in his final race, the Cross Country.
Tiger Roll was going for a record-equalling sixth Cheltenham Festival win but was denied by less than a length, prompting pantomime boos from the 60,000-strong crowd.
He was already back at Gordon Elliott's Cullentra base on Thursday morning and it's fair to say he's already enjoying his retirement having a roll in the mud. Check out the clip the trainer shared on social media below:
