Since 1969 the Betfred Midlands Grand National has been the jewel in Uttoxeter Racecourse's horse racing crown. To celebrate 50 years, we are proud to announce a significant prize fund increase with a total pot of £280,000 on offer across the race card. The atmosphere is always one of excitement and anticipation as the runners and riders thunder towards the finishing line.
One of the most colourful and spectacular sporting days out on the region's calendar, the Midlands Grand National remains a major highlight of the horseracing world. This top-class Listed Handicap Chase has a long history and always features some of the best chasers in training with several of its previous winners and runners having gone on to achieve glory in top steeplechase races such as the Aintree Grand National and Cheltenham Gold Cup.
