Venue: Aintree Racecourse

With a purse of US$1.55 million, the Grand National ranks as the most prestigious handicap steeplechase events in all of Europe. Combine that nearly 2 centuries of storied racing history, and it’s easy to see why spectators from around the globe arrive in Liverpool aboard the best private jets to witness the action.

Known as the ‘ultimate test of horse and rider’ the four-mile track at Aintree Racecourse is as fearsome as it is famous. The fences used for the Grand National are much larger than those found on other national hunt tracks. Some even have earned their own nicknames:

  • Becher’s Brook
  • The Chair
  • Canal Turn
  • Foinavon
  • Valentine’s

Horse and rider must complete two laps of the track, negotiating 30 jumps along the way. It’s estimated that up to 600 million people from 140 countries watch the annual event. Last year’s winning team included:

Horse: Many Clouds

Jockey: Leighton Aspell

Trainer: Oliver Sherwood

Owner: Trevor Hemmings
