The 1982 Grand National at Aintree racecourse, Liverpool was won by Grittar ridden by amateur gentlemen jockey, Dick Saunders. He was 48 years old at the time. He remains the oldest jockey ever to have won this most challenging of horse races. Silhouettes of thoroughbred horses charge over Aintree's iconically high hurdles in this quinessential image of a tradition British sporting event. Almost close enough to touch the horses as they flash past, Mason grants us an exhilarating perspective on the race, almost as if we are galloping alongside them. The only question remains- who is going to win?
