L ; : I ; . LIVERPOOL GRAND NATIONAL STORY OF THE MOST FAMOUS JUMPING RACE, ITS HIS- ■, TORY, 1922 ENTRIES, THEIR OWNERS, PEDIGREES AND HANDICAP WEIGHTS In the domain of steeplechasing the Liverpool Grand National holds practically the same rank and fame as that attaching to the Epsom Derby in flat racing. It is annually contested over the longest and most difficult course in the world. To even traverse this course successfully, to say nothing of winning the race, calls for the display of endurance of an extraordinary character. In fact, so trying are its obstacles that it is of yearly occurrence that the majority of its contestants fall and lose any chance to reach its coveted finishing point in safety. Without exception the horses starting in this great race have gone through a long preliminary educa-tonal course in steeplechasing over shorter distances, but sufficiently long to develop whatever a natural aptitude they may possess to the highest point of efficiency. In this country our most t important steeplechases are of less than three miles, but in England and Ireland races over that o distance are frequent and common throughout the winter jumping meetings. Few days at any J, of these meetings pass without a steeplechase at three miles, and not infrequently at three and t a half miles. Since these meetings begin each year as soon as the flat racing season ends in Jj November and continue throughout the winter and early spring it results that the pick of the t hundreds of jumpers in action are of high class in their line and of a number of which we have had no experience in American racing. Moreover, their best seem to hold their form . better and longer than our best. The famous Manifesto started in eight Grand Nationals, of a v»hich he won two and was third in three. Other examples of well retained form were furnished I by Frigate, Game Cock, The Liberator and Why Not, each of which started in seven renewals of J the race. Peter Simple, Alcibiade and Regal each started in it six times. The first horse to win the race a second time was Abd-el-Kader 1850-51. Others to i complete the "double" have been Peter Simple 1849-53, The Colonel 1869-70, The Lamb 1868-71 and Manifesto 1897-99. The latter was also placed in 1900, 1902 and 1903; then , completed the full course behind Moifaa 1904 when sixteen years old. I All classes of turfmen have sought National honors, and its winner in 1900, Ambush, was the property of the then Prince of Wales, afterward King Edward VII. The fastest time in which the four miles and 856 yards of the race was covered was i recorded by Ascetics Silver in 1906, when he won in 9:34%. Below is a map of the Grand National course at Aintree, with an enumeration and description of the obstacles in the race to be run Friday, March 24. The drawing was made i this year and shows the present course with exactitude. The description of the jumps also is j accurate. ffi: — »JL" E5EO Jv-v DESCRIPTION OF ALL THE GRAND NATIONAL FENCES.

The description of the obstacles in the course at Aintree gives some idea of the reason why high value is placed on the horse that can carry big weight over them and race through plowed fields and various other kinds of footing at a slashing pace from end to end of the journey. GRAND NATIONAL CONDITIONS, ENTRIES, BREEDING AND WEIGHTS The condition of the big race and its present eligibles, with their owners, breeding and weights, are: Grand National Steeplechase handicap, 50 each, 50 forfeit or 5 only if declared, with 5,000 including a trophy, value ,000 added; second ,500, third ,500 and Continued on eighth pace.
