Under the late March sky of Liverpool, 20 horses lined up for the start of the 77th renewal of the Grand National. An annual steeplechase race, the Grand National was first run in the 1830s. The course involves two laps totaling more than four miles of track and 30 harrowing obstacles, which the winner usually traverses in just under 10 minutes. Of the 20 horses that set out in the 1915 Grand National just nine would finish, with the 5-year-old Ally Sloper emerging victorious.

Ally Sloper, sired by Travelling Lad out of Sally in Our Alley, claimed a second Grand National victory for trainer Aubrey Hastings while also establishing Lady Margaret Nelson as the first female owner to win the race.
