A day at the races?
It is the most famous chase and one of the biggest tests for racehorse and rider who have to complete two circuits of the iconic Grand National course – with 30 fences to be jumped as four miles, two furlongs and about 74 yards are covered.
Familiar phrases of commentators such as “crossing the Melling Road” are built into people’s subconscious, while there is the ‘elbow’, with the winning post in sight.
Betting slips or thoughts, carefully clutched or pondered on, are not to be fully celebrated until the result has been officially announced. Replays are avidly studied to determine what happened where to each of the runners and riders.
Bookmakers estimate that some £500 million is wagered in Britain on the day, with the Crabbie’s Grand National accounting for the bulk of that.
Now you and your group can saver the moment of the race up close, see the winners and revel in the occasion which has to be the ultimate horse race of the year. Travel in style in an executive coach and gain admission at discounted prices. One call does it all.
If you fancy impressing colleagues and clients, you can also book Aintree as a private hire.
