The 2009 Grand National steeplechase will be running on April 4th from Aintree.
Does anyone know if this will be on TV in Canada? Does anyone carry steeplechasing on TV in Canada at any time?

It will be on TSN, live April 4 at 10:45am ET, the broadcast will run until Noon. I don't think I remember any Canadian network airing steeplechase racing in recent years, and I've never seen a race. I don't know when TSN got broadcast rights, or if it included any more races. I was quite surprised to see that they will be airing it though.

That is good to hear. I have recently moved to Toronto and was wondering about being able to see the race.

WOW, that is great news. The National was an absolute must watch when I lived in the UK. I can't believe it's taken so long to have the best jump race in the World finally arrive in Canada.
