The Grand National, held at Aintree Racecourse each spring, consists of a gruelling four-and-a-half mile race with 30 jumps, including the giant Becher’s Brook. The fabled horse race is a highlight in the sporting calendar and is the world’s most watched sporting event, with an extraordinary annual audience of over 600 million. The Grand National has made superstars of jockeys, horses and trainers over the years. Red Rum took the title three times between 1973 and 1977 – the only horse ever to do so.
As well as Aintree Racecourse, which has six other race days besides the Crabbie’s Grand National, there is racing at Haydock Park in St Helens. Haydock Park has events throughout the year including the Northwest Masters. The Northwest Masters offers a thrilling weekend package of top-class horse racing in November each year, divided between Haydock and Aintree.
