The Grand National is a historic race, a keystone in the UK thoroughbred steeplechase racing. At four and a half miles over all the jumps, and on what is usually a tiring turf course, it is an incredibly demanding race. Horses 6 years old and up are eligible compete under handicap provisions.

This means that the racing secretary assigns slightly varying weights that each horse must carry. based on past accomplishments and recent form. The race officially dates back to 1839 in name, although it truly began in 1836.

Covering that span of time and selecting several horses as the greatest winners is daunting, and is subject to criticism by racing fans. Some good candidates are obviously those that were repeat winners, such as Abd-El-Kader in 1850-1851, The Colonel in 1869-1870, Poethlyn in 1918-1919, and Reynoldstown 1935-1936.

Lastly among these group, but certainly not least, there was Red Rum who repeated wins in 1973-1974, then performed an incredible feat by coming back to win 3 years later in 1977. Red Rum’s 1974 victory was achieved while carrying a full 12 stone, a feat that had not been accomplished since Reynoldstown’s victory carrying 12 stone and 2 in 1936.
