Cores do Grand National 2018
April 14, 2018 -- A 171ª edição do Grand National, a mais longa, mais dura e mais histórica corrida de obstáculos do mundo, tem lugar na Aintree Racecourse, Liverpool, Inglaterra. A cobertura do Grand National, disputado por 40 cavalos com 30 obstáculos ao longo de mais de quatro milhas e um quarto, é seguida por 600 milhões de pessoas em todo o mundo.
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.
