The last woman to triumph was Nina Carberry won the prestigious race aboard Organisedconfusion in 2011, and the only other woman to claim National glory was Ann Ferris, who won the 1984 event with Bentom Bay.
According to The Irish Times, Thunder and Roses was a 20-1 chance of winning the National, claiming a tight win ahead of Rule the World and Sizing Coal.
In what was a chaotic race, five horses did not clear the first fence, while just nine of the 28 runners completed the race.
Thunder and Roses trainer Sandra Hughes said the win was emotional following the passing of her father, Dessie.
“Thunder And Roses stays all day. I was a little disappointed with him at Cheltenham but he came out of it fine so we took our chance,” Hughes is quoted as saying by the BBC.
“Someone above was helping us out. Dad always loved this race and to do it for him is wonderful.”
