The Grand National, called the “ultimate test for horse and rider” takes place on the 8th April at Aintree. If you want to be there in a corporate entertaining capacity, then don’t delay because places and opportunities are selling quickly.

April may seem like a distant month but it’s not as far away as you might think. Don’t procrastinate or you may be disappointed.

Horse racing hospitality takes place at all the legendary race courses but arguably it’s the Grand National and Aintree which hold the public’s imagination.

The Grand National is the one race in the sporting calendar in which non-gamblers place a bet, just because it’s the Grand National.

People may choose to watch the race at home or in the pub, perhaps the more dedicated race goers will be watching from a position around the course but horse racing hospitality at Aintree offers the best views and the finest facilities.

The event has made household names of horses and jockeys and the festival, of which the Grand National forms the greatest moment, has earned a few records. Interestingly, it’s the 9-year-old horses who have achieved most wins.

  • Of the 168 races run, 44 of them have been won by 9 year olds.
  • Recently it’s the 11 year olds who have excelled by winning in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
  • The oldest winner in history was a 15-year-old, back in 1853.
  • The youngest victors were only five years old, in 1865, 1876, 1877, 1880 and 1909.
  • This record will never be broken because since 2012 only 7 years and older may compete.

Personality, fashionable colours, vibrancy and sporting legends await when you explore Aintree. It’s the place to be seen and to watch an iconic race.

Go on, make 2017 the year that you beat your corporate entertaining records in terms of excellence and excitement.
