The Grand National is a competition run at Central Park greyhound stadium over 480m and it attracts some of the leading hurdlers in the sport, and over three rounds the event will take place in the early part of October, and the final is usually shown in front of the Sky Sports cameras along with the Kent Derby and is often regarded as one of the most eagerly-anticipated races in the latter part of the greyhound calendar.
Attracting a smart list of hurdlers which have often run in the Champion Hurdle or the Springbok during their hurdling career, this Grand National event has seen some smart winners throughout its history and amazingly there have been two dead-heats in the final of the event, with Ideal Man and Ballycarney Dell going across the line together in 1991, while in 1999 there was a dead-heat between Hello Buttons and Pottos Storm in another memorable renewal of the event.
More recently, the event that moved to Central Park (Sittingbourne) in 2012 from its previous location at Wimbledon has seen some smart winners of the race and Mark Wallis trained a fine winner in 2014 as Cornamaddy Jumbo bagged victory, while Mo's Bullet stormed to glory in the 2015 competition to etch his name in what is often an eventful competition in the few weeks it takes place.
