April 14, 2018 -- The 171st edition of the Grand National, the world’s longest, toughest and most historic steeplechase, takes place at Aintree Racecourse, Liverpool, England. Raced by 40 horses over 30 fences and more than four and a quarter miles, the Grand National is followed by up to 600 million people worldwide.

The first official Grand Liverpool Steeplechase, in 1839, was won by the aptly named favourite Lottery, while Captain Becher ensured his immortality when he parted company with his horse at the now world famous Becher’s Brook.

Aintree legend Red Rum is the most successful Grand National horse, coming home first three times, in 1973, 1974, and 1977. Red Rum was trained by another of horse racing’s great characters, Ginger McCain, who went on to claim another victory in the race with Amberleigh House in 2004.
