Grand National (1983)
In December 1982 the seven-year-old Corbiere won the Welsh Grand National and was then aimed at the 1983 Grand National. At Aintree he carried 158 pounds and started at odds on 13/1 and was ridden by Ben De Haan. Corbiere was always among the leaders and went to the front after Valentine's Brook on the second circuit. He was strongly challenged by the Irish horse Greasepaint in the run-in but held on to win by three-quarters of a length. His victory made Pitman the first woman to train a Grand National winner.
