In early April each year, the world and its media descend upon Aintree Racecourse for three of the biggest days in the British sporting and social calendar, the John Smith’s Grand National, which in 2014 will take place from Thursday 3rd – Saturday 5th April.
A British sporting institution, the Grand National attracts over 154,000 racegoers for three days like no other, which includes Grand Opening Day, Ladies’ Day and a day which needs no introduction, John Smith’s Grand National Day.
Over 11 million viewers tuned in to watch the 2012 race on the BBC and were witness to many firsts; a photo finish deciding the winner and a first Grand National victory for champion trainer, Paul Nicholls. Neptune Collonges victory over Sunnyhill Boy also added Neptune Collonges to the history books as only the third grey to have ever won the race in its rich 165-year history.
Are you looking to entertain guests in style or are you looking for that something special to treat a loved one to this year?
In order for Aintree Racecourse to host the Event of the Year a lot of hard work, dedication and commitment is needs from the team at Aintree. Without our annual sponsors support this historic event could not be possible.
Aintree would like to thank all the Official Sponsors of the 2013 John Smiths grand National.
