About Grand National

 

Held annually in the land of United Kingdom, the Grand National is a national hunt horse race that has attained the stature of a cult and is celebrated with joy and fervor. The race saw its beginning in the year 1836 when it was brain childed by William Lynn, proprietor of the Waterloo Hotel.

It is a handicap chase that runs over a distance of 4.8 miles. The course at Aintree near Liverpool consists of two circuits of sixteen fences. The first fourteen fences are jumped twice. The race also deserves mention for having arguably one of the longest runs from the final flight of any steeplechase.

Designed as a cross country steeplechase when it was first started, the Grand National, in present times is one of the biggest horse racing events in Europe. The respect and honor associated with it is evident from the fact that, recently the prize money of this race has been hiked to 975,000 pounds.

Further, it enjoys the designation of being one of ten events reserved for live broadcast on UK terrestrial TV. The numbers show that the viewership of Grand National worldwide is a staggering 600 million viewers. Be here during the event and see for yourself the power and passion associated with the race. The mares and the jockeys toil hard to make through it providing you a befitting entertainment on your vacation in United Kingdom.
