The course at Aintree will once again host the Grand National, England’s most famous race.

Aintree is unforgiving. 40 horses lining up … 4.5 miles, 30 fence jumps.

Is this the toughest, most demanding course in the world, as some people think?


The race’s history is responsible for some of the true horse racing greats and everybody who has ever witnessed a Grand National has a story to tell. And a memory that will last a lifetime.

As I look at my record book, I’m seeing names of famous winners like Bindaree, Hedgehunter, Miinnehoma, Party Politics.

Big Fella Thanks?

Anything can happen in the National. Last year, 100/1 shot Mon Mome landed last year’s renewal.

I’ll keep my eye out for more information tomorrow. So check this site out. I’ll comb the web for more information. And put more feelers out to my UK contacts.

If you are reading this in the UK…would love to hear your thoughts. And predictions.
