The Grand National Festival is unique – the race of dreams and creator of legends. Therefore, it is no surprise that the Grand National receives more attention around the world than any other horse race.
Since the inaugural running at Aintree Racecourse in 1839, when Lottery had his name etched on the roll of honour, victory in the Grand National has been the pinnacle of ambition for owners, trainers and jockeys.
It is the most famous chase in the world and one of the biggest tests for racehorse and rider who have to complete two circuits of the iconic Grand National course – with 30 fences to be jumped as four miles, three furlongs and about 110 yards are covered. Famous landmarks around the course are an integral part of the Grand National experience; with the fences such as Becher’s Brook, the Canal Turn, Valentine’s and the Chair so well known.
With so much happening both on and off the circuit, The Randox Health Grand National Festival 2018 promises passion, thrills and drama like nowhere else.
The curtain will rise on Grand Opening Day, when the racing action will be followed by sensational live music and entertainment.
Day two of the festival is when Aintree sees the ladies take the stage. As well as the breathtaking action on the racecourse, Ladies Day will include the search for the most stylish racegoer.
And then, the day of the grandest show there is. The world will watch on Grand National Day.
