We have been busy putting together a collection of past and present Grand National videos. Some feature lengendry races like Foinavons surprise success in 1967, whilst others tug at the heartstrings like Bob Champions victory in 1981 and who can forget Devon Loch snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, even if you watch it one hundred times you still won’t believe your eyes.
Of course it’s not just clips of old races, we’ve also included funny videos like the ‘Gangnam Style’ parody from a few well known jockeys! Plus you can have a chuckle at those Paddy Power adverts – I can promise you won’t see them on TV anytime soon.
The first video shows the story of how steeplechase racing began. This Channel Four promo for the Grand National highlights the long history behind the original extreme sport!
