There are things that are better to be seen once than told ten times. Grand National is definitely one of those. Grand National is an annual Horse Race that takes place since 1839 and considered as one of the most important horse racing events in the world. We went to the Liverpool area, more precisely to Aintree, to participate in this massive action accompanied by our friend, Keith Mercer, ex-jockey who used to ride here himself and even finished fifth several years ago. He was our official guide through the whole day.
Grand National consists of three days of competitions, and we chose the second one, which is called Ladies Day, for two reasons. The first one is that during this day, there are up to seven races, and not just one, and the second one was our insisting curiosity to find out what exactly Ladies Day meant. Now let us share with you all the striking observations we made.
