Scottish Grand National

Ayr Racecourse
A Brief History Of Scottish Grand National
The Scottish Grand National is a Grade 3 National Hunt horse race for five-year-old and above horses run over a distance of 4 miles 1 furlong (6,639 metres) at Ayr Racecourse in April.

It is a handicap chase, and is often contested by horses which ran previously in the Grand National at Aintree. There are twenty-seven fences to be jumped in the race.

The race moved to its present venue in 1966 after the closure of its original venue, Bogside Racecourse, where the race had been run over a distance of 3 miles 7 furlongs (6,236 metres) since 1867.
