The Grand National at Aintree has been a British sporting institution since 1839, when a horse called Lottery won the first Grand National and Captain Becher parted company with his horse at a now famous brook.

The Grand National is a race synonymous with a horse called Red Rum, the horse who captured the nation’s hearts and was trained on the beaches of Southport and went on to win 3 Grand Nationals.

The Festival is 3 full days of stories and wonder and the highest quality jump racing in the UK. Starting with Liverpool Day on April 12, followed by Ladies Day on the 13th and

The 2012 Grand National on Saturday the 14th April.

What makes the Grand National horse race so unique is the distance of the race combined with the difficulty of the Grand National fences and the volume of runners, normally 40 horses.
