Aintree publish a roll of honour in their racecards each year based on a list compiled largely from the fading memories of aging racing enthusiasts sometime around — Aintree officials concede that their honours record prior to is notoriously inaccurate, therefore the British Horseracing Board 's records taken from the press accounts of the time have been used as a more reliable source for the connections of winners prior to The first official running of the "Grand National" is now considered to be the Grand Liverpool Steeplechase.
There had been a similar race for several years prior to this, but its status as an official Grand National was revoked some time between and For three years during World War I , the Grand National could not be run at Aintree, and so a substitute event was held at another racecourse, Gatwick.
This venue is now defunct, and it is presently the site of London Gatwick Airport. The course was modified to make it similar to Aintree, and the races were contested over the same distance, with one fence fewer to be jumped.
The running was titled the Racecourse Association Steeplechase and for the next two years it was known as the War National. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

We'll get back to you shortly. There was a problem sending your message. But by he had recovered and was passed fit to ride in the Grand National.
He rode Aldaniti , a horse deprived in its youth and which had only recently recovered from chronic leg problems. From to , Seagram sponsored the Grand National.
The Canadian distiller provided a solid foundation on which the race's revival could be built, firstly enabling the course to be bought from Davies and to be run and managed by the Jockey Club.
It is said that Ivan Straker, Seagram's UK chairman, became interested in the potential opportunity after reading a passionate newspaper article written by journalist Lord Oaksey, who, in his riding days, had come within three-quarters of a length of winning the National.
Coincidentally, the race was won by a horse named Seagram. The result of the Grand National was declared void after a series of incidents commentator Peter O'Sullevan later called "the greatest disaster in the history of the Grand National.
While under starter's orders, one jockey was tangled in the starting tape which had failed to rise correctly.
A false start was declared, but due to a lack of communication between course officials, 30 of the 39 jockeys did not realise this and began the race.
Course officials tried to stop the runners by waving red flags, but many jockeys continued to race, believing that they were protesters a group of whom had invaded the course earlier , while Peter Scudamore only stopped because he saw his trainer, Martin Pipe , waving frantically at him.
Seven horses completed the course, meaning the result was void. The first past the post was Esha Ness in the second-fastest time ever , ridden by John White and trained by Jenny Pitman.
The Grand National was postponed after two coded bomb threats were received from the Provisional Irish Republican Army.
The course was secured by police who then evacuated jockeys, race personnel, and local residents along with 60, spectators.
Cars and coaches were locked in the course grounds, leaving some 20, people without their vehicles over the weekend.
With limited accommodation available in the city, local residents opened their doors and took in many of those stranded.
This prompted tabloid headlines such as " We'll fight them on the Becher's ", in reference to Winston Churchill's war-time speech.
Hedgehunter , who would go on to win in , fell at the last while leading. In John Smith's took over from Martell as main sponsors of the Grand National and many of the other races at the three-day Aintree meeting for the first time.
The victory was also the first for trainer Venetia Williams , the first female trainer to triumph since Jenny Pitman in The race was also the first National ride for Liam Treadwell.
In the National became the first horse race to be televised in high-definition in the UK. In August Crabbie's was announced as the new sponsor of the Grand National.
In March it was announced that Randox Health would take over from Crabbie's as official partners of the Grand National festival from , for at least five years.
The race was not run owing to the coronavirus pandemic ; in its place, a virtual race was produced using CGI technology and based on algorithms of the 40 horses most likely to have competed.
Its winner was Red Rum by less than a length, having just passed Manifesto. The Grand National is run over the National Course at Aintree and consists of two laps of 16 fences, the first 14 of which are jumped twice.
The Grand National was designed as a cross-country steeplechase when it was first officially run in The runners started at a lane on the edge of the racecourse and raced away from the course out over open countryside towards the Leeds and Liverpool Canal.
The gates, hedges, and ditches that they met along the way were flagged to provide them with the obstacles to be jumped along the way with posts and rails erected at the two points where the runners jumped a brook.
The runners returned towards the racecourse by running along the edge of the canal before re-entering the course at the opposite end.
The runners then ran the length of the racecourse before embarking on a second circuit before finishing in front of the stands.
The majority of the race, therefore, took place not on the actual Aintree Racecourse but instead in the adjoining countryside.
That countryside was incorporated into the modern course but commentators still often refer to it as "the country". There are 16 fences on the National Course topped with spruce from the Lake District.
The cores of 12 fences were rebuilt in and they are now made of a flexible plastic material which is more forgiving compared to the traditional wooden core fences.
Some of the jumps carry names from the history of the race. All 16 are jumped on the first lap, but on the final lap, the runners bear to the right onto the run-in for home, avoiding The Chair and the Water Jump.
The following is a summary of all 16 fences on the course:    . The drop on the landing side was reduced after the Grand National.
It was bypassed in on the final lap, after an equine casualty. The second became known as The Fan, after a mare who refused the obstacle three years in succession.
The name fell out of favour with the relocation of the fences. In the 20th became the first fence in Grand National history to be bypassed on the final lap, following an equine fatality.
Height: 5 feet 1. It was bypassed on the final lap for the first time in so that medics could treat a jockey who fell from his mount on the first lap and had broken a leg.
Becher's has always been a popular vantage point as it can present one of the most spectacular displays of jumping when the horse and rider meet the fence right.
Jockeys must sit back in their saddles and use their body weight as ballast to counter the steep drop. It takes its name from Captain Martin Becher who fell there in the first Grand National and took shelter in the small brook running along the landing side of the fence while the remainder of the field thundered over.
It is said that Becher later reflected: "Water tastes disgusting without the benefits of whisky. Before the First World War it was not uncommon for loose horses to continue straight ahead after the jump and end up in the Leeds and Liverpool Canal itself.
It was bypassed for the first time in on the final lap as vets arrived to treat a horse who fell on the first lap.
A grandstand was erected alongside the fence in the early part of the 20th century but fell into decline after the Second World War and was torn down in the s.
The runners then cross the Melling Road near to the Anchor Bridge, a popular vantage point since the earliest days of the race. This also marks the point where the runners are said to be re-entering the "racecourse proper".
In the early days of the race, it is thought there was an obstacle near this point known as the Table Jump, which may have resembled a bank similar to those still seen at Punchestown in Ireland.
In the s the Melling Road was also flanked by hedges and the runners had to jump into the road and then back out of it.
Despite some tired runners falling on the 30th and appearing injured, no horse deaths have occurred at the 30th fence to date.
On the first lap of the race, runners continue around the course to negotiate two fences which are only jumped once:. The fence was the location where a distance judge sat in the earliest days of the race.
On the second circuit, he would record the finishing order from his position and declare any horse that had not passed him before the previous runner passed the finishing post as "distanced", meaning a non-finisher.
The practice was done away with in the s, but the monument where the chair stood is still there. The ground on the landing side is six inches higher than on the takeoff side, creating the opposite effect to the drop at Becher's.
The fence was originally known as the Monument Jump, but "The Chair" came into more frequent use in the s. Today it is one of the most popular jumps on the course for spectators.
The Water Jump was one of the most popular jumps on the course, presenting a great jumping spectacle for those in the stands and was always a major feature in the newsreels ' coverage of the race.
As the newsreels made way for television in the s, so, in turn, did the Water Jump fall under the shadow of its neighbour, The Chair, in popularity as an obstacle.
On the final lap, after the 30th fence, the remaining runners bear right, avoiding The Chair and Water Jump, to head onto a "run-in" to the finishing post.
The run-in is not perfectly straight: an "elbow" requires jockeys to make a slight right before finding themselves truly on the home straight.
When the concept of the Grand National was first envisaged it was designed as a race for gentlemen riders,  meaning men who were not paid to compete, and while this was written into the conditions of the early races many of the riders who weighed out for the race were professionals for hire.
Throughout the Victorian era the line between the amateur and professional sportsman existed only in terms of the rider's status, and the engagement of an amateur to ride in the race was rarely considered a handicap to a contender's chances of winning.
Many gentleman riders won the race before the First World War. Although the number of amateurs remained high between the wars their ability to match their professional counterparts gradually receded.
After the Second World War, it became rare for any more than four or five amateurs to take part in any given year. The last amateur rider to win the race is Marcus Armytage , who set the still-standing course record of Frisk in By the 21st century, however, openings for amateur riders had become very rare with some years passing with no amateur riders at all taking part.
Those that do in the modern era are most usually talented young riders who are often close to turning professional. In the past, such amateur riders would have been joined by army officers, such as David Campbell who won in , and sporting aristocrats, farmers or local huntsmen and point to point riders, who usually opted to ride their own mounts.
But all these genres of rider have faded out in the last quarter of a century with no riders of military rank or aristocratic title having taken a mount since The Sex Discrimination Act made it possible for female jockeys to enter the race.
The 21st century has not seen a significant increase in female riders but it has seen them gain rides on mounts considered to have a genuine chance of winning.
