Journalists were still baffled last night as they tried to understand how the UK's top horse race - the Grand National - was won and lost.
As usual, there was terrific interest in the greatest event in the horse-racing calendar.
The race lived up to its reputation for suprises as the 14-1 shot Ballabriggs, ridden by Jason Maguire and trained by Donald McCain, led the field from the start and won.
But reporters waiting to interview the victorious jockey were left non-plussed when they asked Maguire about his tactics.
EIF News & Features racing correspondent, Forbert Stable, said: "He was just asked how he decided to run the race and all that came out was this drivel! I couldn't make head nor tail... it was like he came from another world...
"That's it... Maguire comes from Mars, or at least Proxima Centauri 3. My God! Do the authorities know?"
(Stable has been sent for a lie down. We accept that Mr Maguire is not an alien ... he's Irish and we can't understand a word he says. - Ed).
