2019 Grand National prize money: Purse, winners share

 Grand National 2019 prize money: Purse, winners share for Every runner.






The 172nd annual running of the Grand National horse race at Aintree Racecourse remains the people's race and in the First week of April every year 40 runners List to tackle 30 fences in the world's most famous steeplechase.

 £1 million in prize money will be at stake on Saturday, April 6 at Aintree for the 172nd edition of the race.

Aintree recently confirmed that this year's prize money is the same as last year with a £1 million purse and the top-10 finishers receiving a cheque:


 With 40 runners, this means only 25% of the horses will get prize money. But going down to 10th place is much further down than any other race on the racing calendar.

 The winner receives a cool £561,000.
There is a £350k difference between finishing first and second, that is £211K.
 Third takes home just over £100k, while 4th pockets £52k in cash, with 5th netting £26k –


 The jockeys receive a fixed fee for every National Hunt race they ride in, but the leading jockeys will have arrangements with owners who sometimes pay them reasonable.

 They will also have an agreed percentage of any prize money, much like a professional golfer arranges with their caddie, of around eight percent.

 That means riding a National winner could be worth an additional £45,000 in earnings.

1 -  £561,300
