Blackmore became the first female jockey to win the Grand National while Henry de Bromhead won the race for the first time as a trainer.

Due to the Covid pandemic, the racing classic had to take place behind closed doors for the first time in its history.

But fans will be back at Liverpool’s famous racecourse this year.

Grand National 2022 Date and Start Time

The flagship race takes place on Saturday, April 9th

It starts at 5.15 p.m. with 40 registered horses.
