The Grand National is the most famous race in the world.

Run at Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool over a distance of four and a quarter miles contested by forty horses over thirty fences with famous names such as Becher’s Brook and The Chair.

It was first run in eighteen thirty nine and won by the aptly-named Lottery and there have since been five winners at odds of a hundred to one.

During both the World Wars, the race was cancelled after Aintree was commandeered for use as a defence base.

In nineteen fifty six, the Queen Mother’s horse Devon Loch slipped whilst leading with the finishing line just yards away, costing him the race.

Her famous reaction was “Oh, that’s racing!”

In nineteen sixty seven, an incident at the twenty third fence allowed the hundred to one shot Foinavon to land an unlikely victory and the same fence was renamed in his honour.

In nineteen seventy three, the most famous winner of all time, Red Rum, won the race for the first time before doing so again in nineteen seventy and nineteen seventy seven.

The fastest-ever winning time was recorded by

Mr Frisk who won the nineteen ninety race in eight minutes, forty seven point eight seconds.

In twenty ten, jockey AP McCoy finally won the race at the fifteenth attempt aboard a horse called Don’t Push It.

The last two runnings of the race have been won by jockey Leighton Aspell, but will it be third time lucky in twenty sixteen?
