The History

The Midlands Grand National first ran in 1969. It runs over a distance of 4 miles and 2 furlongs (though the distance has been altered many times over 50 years) and 24 fences are jumped throughout.

In 1969, winner Happy Spring was coming  to the end of a fine career of which had seen him be one of only six horses ever to 
have beaten the legendary Arkle. Happy Spring and jockey Ken White galloped into the record books by becoming the first ever winner of the Midlands Grand National.
