Highlights of the 1952 Grand National (British Pathé)

The 1952 Grand National was the 106th renewal of the Grand National horse race that took place at Aintree Racecourse near Liverpool, England, on 5 April 1952.

The race went off ten minutes late, after the field breached the starting tape, prompting a false start. It was won by Teal, a 100/7 shot ridden by jockey Arthur Thompson and trained by Neville Crump. Thompson and Crump were victorious in the steeplechase in 1948 also, with Sheila's Cottage, at odds of 50/1.

In second place was Legal Joy, third was Wot No Son, and Uncle Barney finished fourth.

Forty-seven horses ran, and all but one returned safely to the stables. Skouras had to be euthanised after incurred a cervical fracture falling at Becher's Brook.
