The Coral Scottish Grand National, Class 1, Grade 3
The Coral Scottish Grand National is not only the richest jumps race run in Scotland but also one of the most prestigious contests on the National Hunt calendar.
To further underline the importance of this race it is the fourth biggest in the UK in terms of betting turnover and was watched on television by a massive 1.2 million viewers in 2019.
Run over 4 miles, with a field of up to 30 horses negotiating 27 fences this exciting spectacle has produced some historic winners.
The most famous past winner of the race was Red Rum who in 1974 became the first horse ever to win the Grand National at Aintree and the Scottish Grand National in the same year.
The magnificent trophy was kept in the north in 2019 when Takingrisks, trained by Nicky Richards and ridden by Sean Quinlan, bravely won after recovering from a first fence blunder.
