Scottish Grand National Winners since 1966

Ayr Racecourse began hosting the Scottish Grand National in 1966. Before this time, the race was held at the Bogside.

In 1974, Red Rum performed an as yet unmatched feat when he won the Grand National at Aintree and then went on to win the Scottish Grand National of the same year.
