The famous fences of the Grand National by Gen Wright

The Grand National is a four mile and four furlongs course with 30 fences, which has no more than 40 horses racing. This is a lot of horses going over fences at pretty much the same time! Winning the Grand National is a huge aspiration for all horse breeders, trainers, jockeys and the first place winning prize of 506,970 is not least of the race's appeal. The most famous fences of the Grand National are fence 15, fence 16, fences 9 and 25, fences 6 and 22, fences 7 and 23, and fences 8 and 24. But why are these the most famous fences of the great race?

Fence 15 is known as The Chair and is one of the only two fences of the race to be jumped twice, alongside the Water Jump. The Chair is the biggest fence of the course at 5 foot 2 inches and also the widest at 3 foot. Fence 15 is named The Chair as a chair was situated next to the fence, where a judge used to sit to see if any horses had been beaten by a distance. Sounds pretty dangerous!

Fence 16, known as the Water Jump stands 2 feet, 9 inches high and has a 9 foot, 6 inch expanse of water directly after the fence. The Water Jump is the shortest fence on the course, and jockeys perceive it to be the easiest obstacle on the course. Having said that, four horses came down on the Water Jump in 1968.

Fences 9 and 25, the Valentines as it is known, requires a near faultless jump and is named after Valentine who attempted to pull himself up at the obstacle, only to pirouette over the fence and brook!

Fences 6 and 22 is named Becher's Brook after Captain Martin Becher, the first rider to come off horse Conrad into the brook in the first Grand National in 1839. Becher commented afterwards that the water should not be ingested without brandy or whisky! Over the years the fence has been modified to cover the brook and the landings side raised so is not quite the test it used to be but is still considered by jockeys to be one of the most difficult of the course.

Fences 7 and 23 Foinavon are so named after his surprise win by 15 lengths at odds of 100/1. The riderless Popham Down veered across the whole field , bringing down virtually all the remaining runners of the 44 starters, allowing jockey John Buckingham to steer Foinavon around the pileup and jump the fence!

Fences 8 and 24 are a 5 foot jump which usually causes problems due to the 90 degree turn after the Canal Turn and is especially devastating if there are loose horses nearby. New screening at the Canal Turn prevents the horses from being able to see the sharp left hand turn and encourages jockeys to spread out along the fence, rather than take the tight left side route, thereby minimising the risks to both the horses and the jockeys.

Did any horses die during this years aintree grand national?

I know 4 died in the 2 days before but did any die in the Grand National?

No, thankfully all the horses came home safe and well.

It's a sad fact but horses don't just die in the Grand National, it happens in smaller races all over the country every day of the year, in fields and out on gallops.

If you are truly concerned about horse welfare, don't listen to the mischief makers who raise their voices about a high profile race such as the Grand National to gain support, join a group of people making the world a better place for horses everywhere, not just in racing, like World Horse Welfare formerly knows as the ILPH (International League for the Protection of Horses)
Here is the link:-
http://www.worldhorsewelfare.org/

The fact that no horses were injured this year shows that the safety measures that Aintree racecourse are putting in place, like filling in the dreaded ditch the other side of the jump known as The Chair which has claimed many horses are in fact working.
It's a black day for racing when any horse dies or jockey gets injured and I find it difficult to come to terms with, but up to that point those horses have been loved and cared for unlike some poor creatures left starving in a field without shelter or water, or shut in a dirty stable with no veterinary care or attention...Jac x
