Aintree

Home to the Grand National, Aintree is one of the top National Hunt venues in the circuit. Despite various modifications to the National Course, the race still offers the ultimate challenge to both horse and rider and attracts a massive worldwide audience. Fences the like of Becher's Brook, The Chair and The Canal Turn have helped to capture the public's imagination of the race and have become household names in their own right. The Mildmay Course stages all but four of Aintree's races and is a flat, track with two long straights. It is imperative horses are fast and accurate at their obstacles at both courses.
