About Aintree Racecourse
Home to the greatest steeplechase in the world, the Randox Grand National, Aintree is at the heart of Liverpool’s community.
Part of The Jockey Club – the largest commercial group in British horseracing – Aintree stages eight fixtures each year (soon to be nine in 2023), is a hugely popular location for conferences and events and its Equestrian Centre hosts the annual Retraining of Racehorses UK National Championships.
However, it is the Randox Grand National - for which Aintree is best known.
The highlight of the three day Randox Health Grand National Festival, held in April each year, was first run as the Liverpool Grand Steeplechase in 1836 and is now one of the most watched races across the globe, with over 500 million people consuming the Grand National annually.
