The 2015 Grand National carnival begins today at Aintree racecourse and will run for 3 days, from Thursday 9 April to Saturday 11 April.
The highlight race, the Grand National, has been taking place since its inaugural run in 1839, and today it holds top billing as the most valuable and well-known Chase race in the entire world.
A crowd of over 150,000 visitors are expected to converge on the Aintree racecourse over the next 3 days, and the feature race of the carnival is expected to draw a television viewing audience of over 9 million people.
The course itself is well-known and loved amongst both racing aficionados and the general public, with its 30 famous fences garnering names such as Becher’s Brook, Foinavon and The Chair, and many of the races’ winners writing their name into the history books – such as Record Rum, which holds the record for Grand National wins with 3 victories.
Apart from the feature race there will be many other highlights to be had and seen at the Grand National carnival being hosted at Aintree, so stay tuned to us here at www.racebetter.co.uk where you can expect to be provided with full carnival tipping for each and every race before they take place.
