The Grand National:
Are you paying attention? … The Grand National horse race was “officially” first ran in 1839 ( there is a dispute about whether three races held nearby were actually the first, although they were not run at Aintree ) It is a National Hunt race and is the most valuable hurdle race in the EU with a pot of £1 Million at last years care (2014)
The race is run over almost two laps of Aintree and over 30 fences which in total comes to almost 4 1/2 miles or over 7kM. Among the fences are some famous ones such as The Chair, Beechers Brook, and Canal Turn. The race is very physically demanding for both Jockey and horse and many horses fail to finish or at least fail to finish with their pilot.
