The Grand National is set for April 10, 2021 at Aintree Racecourse, Liverpool, England.
Inaugurated in 1839, the Grand National is a handicap steeplechase in which FORTY horses run on turf over a distance of 4 miles, 514 yards, with 30 fences and a purse of £1 million (approximately 1.3 million USD). This marathon of a race is famous around the world as one of the most grueling challenges for any jockey and is the climax of Liverpool's Aintree festival, which comes just a few weeks after the Cheltenham Festival.
Over half a billion people tune in to watch the Grand National each year and it is considered a “must see” event in the United Kingdom, even for people who do not wager on horses.
The leading horse of all time at the Grand National was Red Rum (no, we are not talking about what that little kid said in “The Shining”). Red Rum won the Grand National three times - in 1973, 1974 and 1977. Tiger Roll having won the race in 2018 and 2019 now has the chance to equal that incredible hat-trick.
