The Grand National: Racing, Betting and Style!


As someone who's always on the lookout for new events that showcase the best of fashion and seasonal style, I've recently been getting excited about the beginning of the international horse racing schedule—and more specifically, the coming Grand National in Liverpool. Now, this isn't exactly a "new" event; actually, the Grand National has been going on since 1839! But nevertheless, it's a unique event to look at from a fashion perspective, as major horse races tend to bring out some of the wackiest, most vibrant, and most inventive looks of the year. I, for one, can spend hours leafing through old photos from America's Kentucky Derby!

Before I get into some of the style you may see at an event like the Grand National, however, I thought it might be a good idea to offer a preview of the actual competition, which essentially means going over what it is and how you can bet on it. After all, the races and the wagers make up the action at the Grand National—the style just makes up the atmosphere!

The actual horse race at the Grand National is held at the Aintree Race Course as part of the National Hunt horse race. It's classified as a steeplechase race, lasting 4 miles and 3.5 furlongs (or just over 7,000 metres). There are 30 fences for the horses to jump along the way, which really means that there are few spells of uninterrupted sprinting, with the race broken up consistently by some pretty ambitious leaps.

As for betting activity at the Grand National, there are plenty of options for spectators who want to place bets, and really even placing a small bet helps you to enjoy the experience more—it's almost like tradition. But rather than just learning where to bet, it's also important to go about the process in a way that will help you to make good decisions! Online sports platform Betfair provides a wealth of tips in this regard, with a section devoted to updates on the popular horses at the Grand National. You can also place bets based on the latest odds, which will give you a better idea of which horse is expected to win the event.

Having a stake in the races, even a fairly insignificant one, adds a thrill and makes the experience more complete. But what really rounds out the experience, in the end, is the fashion of it all!
