This information has been carefully compiled but you are advised to double check the data with printed sources as the Museum cannot be held responsible for any errors or omissions. Please note that, for example, Edward VII is always listed with this title (for cross referencing purposes) even though at the time of some of his wins he was still the Prince of Wales - this applies to several individuals who inherited or were given titles in the course of their racing careers.

Grand National
First race: 1837
Usual location: Aintree
Current distance: 4 miles 856 yards

There is some discussion as to the first actual winner of the Grand National, some quoting The Duke (1837) and some Lottery (1839). The latter was the occasion on which a crowd of about 50,000 saw Captain Becher fall into the brook which bears his name.

The early Nationals were somewhat robust, emulating the cavalry's dare devil skill, and public outcry was immediate. The course, prize money, training and administration were all thankfully improved. The early years saw many gentlemen riders - often the trainers are not completely identifiable. The later years saw the extraordinary achievement of Red Rum, with three Nationals and two second places within five years. This feat will surely never be equalled, even though the course has continued to be made safer.
