Hi All,

Grand National—

1887 Gamecock [4 miles, 1000 yards] — 10 mins 10 1/5 secs

1888 Playfair [4 miles, 880 yards] — 10 mins 12 secs

1889 Frigate [4 miles, 856 yards] — 10 mins 1 1/5 secs

Statistics from the Sheffield Independent, 1st April 1889.

Mathematics is not my strongpoint, so I'll leave it to someone else to work out which was the fastest race.

Happy New Year,

Simon
