Grand National Steeplecase

The Grand National Steeplechase Association will run the 118th rendition of its race meet on April 17, 2021, at 50% capacity. The Race Committee expects that State of Maryland and Baltimore County regulations related to COVID-19 may change approaching the race date. As such, all communication concerning ticket availability, attendance and race terms and conditions is subject to change. Further updates will be posted on the race website as more information becomes available. We would like to thank our public services, medical professionals, volunteers, loyal supporters and participants for their dedication to the Grand National Steeplechase. We hope to see you in Butler on the second-to-last Saturday in April!

Owing to the United States Postal Service’s mailing delays, race day parking/security personnel will have updated lists of paid patrons for each parking area at the entrance at 2838 Butler Road. Patrons will be required to show an I.D. corresponding to the purchaser for entry onto the race grounds. We thank you for your understanding.
