Grand National

Arguably the biggest individual race in the horseracing calendar, the Grand National has for years captivated the thousands in attendance at Aintree Racecourse and the millions of viewers watching on TV at home throughout the UK.

The National has been a permanent fixture in the sport since 1839. Every year, 40 different horses trained by some of the finest trainers, including Paul Nicholls and Nicky Henderson, and ridden by some of the world’s most famous and talented jockeys make up the field in the hope of having their name etched into Grand National history. Throughout the years, more than a few longshots, including 100/1 shot Mon Mome back in 2009, have won.

Today, the National race itself is the centrepiece of a four-day event at Aintree. It’s Europe’s most lucrative jump race, having a prize fund of close to £1m. Attendances over the festival usually top the 150,000 mark, making it a key meeting in more ways than one for the sport.
