John Pinfold comments that a racecard he most covets is from 1897 or 1899 as he is a great fan of Manifesto and his jockey George Williamson (still the only man to have ridden the winner of both the Grand National and the Velka Pardubicka). He further comments that one can see Manifesto's skeleton at the University of Liverpool's Victoria Museum.
I am very grateful to John Pinfold for the picture shown below. I can recommend Gallant Sport and An Aintree Dynasty, both written by John Pinfold. To purchase a copy of either book go to the Amazon Grand National store shown below.
