Grandstand Finish To The British Flat Racing Jockey���s Championship

Aintree .

The first official races at Aintree were organised by the owner of Liverpool's Waterloo Hotel, Mr William Lynn. Lynn leased the land from Lord Sefton, laid out a course, built a grandstand and staged the first Flat fixture on July 7, 1829.

On Tuesday February 26, 1839, Lottery became the first winner of The Grand National. In those days the field had to jump a stone wall (now the water jump), cross a stretch of plough land and finish over two hurdles.

Now its totally different and over four miles long. The 2004 National had 133 entries declared with as many as 40 places up for grabs.
