Where all that hard work comes to an epic conclusion. The stars and their jockeys turn up and race at an event where hundreds and thousands of pounds are won and lost on "long-shot" and last minute bets. However those long shot bets generally pay off an its often rare that favourite at the grand national wins. The Grand National is the most famous, exclusive and highest valued national hunt race in the United Kingdom. It's total prize money is £950,000.
In 2011 the Irish horse Ballabriggs won the race, securing the prize money of £535,000. The trainer often gains the credit, as it is them who spend hundreds of hours each year maintaing the horses and making sure they are race ready. It was a first win for trainer Donald McCain Jr and even more importantly they set the second fastest time in Grand National history, a total of 9 minutes and 1.2 seconds.
We refrained from placing any bets as our team were dedicated to working constantly offering the best possible service. It was made easier with the use of the Avid ISIS 5000 Network Shared Storage and the Apple Final Cut Pro (Mac). We we're there in advance to set-up and have everything prepared, as well as being on-site maintaining the equipment and supporting the production crew.Kit List:
