About Aintree racecourse
Aintree is the home of the world’s most famous horse racing, the Grand National. There are two distinct tracks at Aintree, the Mildmay course and the National course itself, which is a triangular, left-handed course at around two and a quarter miles in length. The inside Mildmay track is used more often for regular races and is an altogether more easy track to negotiate.
Completely flat with fairly sharp turns, it is a fair platform for the best jumping talents around to showcase their ability on the big stage.
