The second longest Steeplechase in the country at 4 miles and 1 1/2 furlongs, the Betfred Midlands Grand National is a true test of stamina and courage for both horse and jockey. Since 1969 this prestigious fixture has been a firm favourite in the racing calendar and with an increased prize fund of £130,000 it’s no wonder that top jockeys, trainers and owners all want to win this BIG race.
Taking place on the 19th March 2016 the Grand Midlands National attracts some of the best chasers in training and previous runners have even gone on to victory in the Aintree Grand National and the Cheltenham Gold Cup.
The Betfred Midlands Grand National truly captures the very essence of Great British horse racing – the passion, the excitement, the anticipation!
