The 1939 Grand National was the 98th renewal of the world-famous Grand National horse race that took place at Aintree Racecourse near Liverpool, England, on 24 March 1939.

The winning jockey was Irishman Tim Hyde, riding 100/8 shot Workman.[3] Workman was trained by Jack Ruttle, for owner Sir Alexander Maguire. MacMoffat finished in second place, Kilstar was third, and Cooleen fourth for the second consecutive year.
