And I thought the Belmont Stakes enjoyed a long history.

Tomorrow marks the 241st running of the Epsom Derby.

The race originally was scheduled for June 6 but pushed back to July 4 due to COVID-19.

nobody on the inside has won in over 100 years.

this is not true, its something they say to point out that the 1 hole is historically not good at all in the Derby...but there has been winners

Whatever way you slice it, English King's draw of stall one is a headache rather than a hindrance for Frankie Dettori.

Oath in 1999 was the last to win from there. Since no horse has come from stall one to finish better than fourth and that horse was 4-5 favourite Saxon Warrior.

In the last ten years Main Sequence (stall three in 2012) and Kingston Hill (stall two in 2014) are the only horses to finish in the first three from lower than berth five.

Re: Official Thread of the Epsom Derby DERBY. Live in play



both historic and popular events. ive done Ascot two days a couple years ago. was invited by many I met to join them for Grand National meet. Big difference. ASCOT is about beauty, fashion, royalty, great throughbred racing, sophisiticaed food, high prices, drinks celebrities,

Grand National is about debauchery, let your hair down, drink heavy, party with your buds.

its sort of Opera vs Nascar but buth have much to like.

The Grand National is a National Hunt horse race held annually at Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool, England. First run in 1839, it is a handicap steeplechase over 4 miles 514 yards (6.907 km) with horses jumping 30 fences over two laps.[2] It is the most valuable jump race in Europe, with a prize fund of £1 million in 2017.[3] An event that is prominent in British culture, the race is popular amongst many people who do not normally watch or bet on horse racing at other times of the year.[4]


The course over which the race is run features much larger fences than those found on conventional National Hunt tracks. Many of these, particularly Becher's Brook, The Chair and the Canal Turn, have become famous in their own right and, combined with the distance of the event, create what has been called "the ultimate test of horse and rider".[5][6]


The Grand National has been broadcast live on free-to-air terrestrial television in the United Kingdom since 1960. From then until 2012 it was broadcast by the BBC. Between 2013 and 2016 it was shown by Channel 4; the UK broadcasting rights transferred to ITV from 2017.[7] An estimated 500 to 600 million people watch the Grand National in over 140 countries.[7][8][9] It has also been broadcast on radio since 1927; BBC Radio held exclusive rights until 2013, however, Talksport also now holds radio commentary rights.[10]


The most recent running of the race, in 2018, was won by Tiger Roll, ridden by jockey Davy Russell for trainer Gordon Elliott. The next Grand National meeting will start on 4 April 2019 and finish on 6 April 2019. As of 2017, the race and accompanying festival are sponsored by Randox Health.

Opera versus NASCAR, good line, Try3.
