JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, sports
Have you got your bets in for the Grand National Winners 2018 yet? To help you keep your knowledge of the race in check, we've got this awesome infographic on the now infamous 1990 Grand National Event. The national is an annual horse race held at Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool, England and is attended by over one hundred and fifty thousand people every year, with over an eye watering 600 million viewers tuning in to watch the event across the planet. The 1990 event went down in history due to an amateur jockey by the name of Marcus Armytage setting a world record for the course by completing it in under 9 minutes, at a time of eight minutes and 47.80 seconds. This is the fastest finish in the races history and beat the previously long held record set by now infamous Red Rum.
