About John Smith’s Grand National:
This National Hunt horse race is held annually and is a handicap steeplechase run over a distance of 4 miles and 4 furlongs with horses jumping 30 fences over two circuits of Aintree’s National Course. This steeplechase is the focus of a three-day meeting and is the most recognized National Hunt event in Britain. With prize money totalling £975,000 in 2012, this race is popular amongst many people who do not normally watch or bet on horse racing at other times of the year. Not only do die-hard horse racing fans want to study the form, but the tradition of the race means that other people less familiar with horse racing betting also attempt to pick the winner. Whether you bet on your favorite color horse, favorite color jockey outfit, or just the name… it’s a fun way to socialize and cheer on “your horse”. Ladbrokes is a great place to learn the horses, jockeys, and pick your winner.
Ladies, get ready because this is an equestrian affair not-to-miss! Ladies’ Day
