Since the inaugural running at Aintree Racecourse in 1839, when Lottery had his name etched on the roll of honour, victory in the Grand National has been the pinnacle of ambition for owners, trainers and jockeys.

GRAND NATIONAL EVENT HISTORY

The history of the Grand National can be traced back to the early 1800s, when the first official races were organised at Aintree.

In February 1839, Lottery became the first winner of the Grand Liverpool Steeplechase, the race that would become known as the Grand National. Horses had to jump a stone wall, cross a stretch of ploughed land and finish over two hurdles.
