The Grand National is the biggest race of the year but unfortunately the 2020 renewal was cancelled. The race was scheduled to take place in early April and despite talk that it could have gone on behind closed doors, this, in the end, wasn’t an option.
The National is the most viewed race of the year and always has the most betting turnover so was a massive miss to the industry. Along with the National, the entire three-day meeting was cancelled, which included several Grade One races.
With no jump racing until July, the race wasn’t rescheduled but will be back in 2021, as Tiger Roll seeks a hat-trick of wins.
