America’s richest steeplechase race, the $300,000 Grand National (Gr. 1) on Saturday, Oct. 17, took on a decided international flavor when a phalanx of overseas-based horses was nominated to the featured race of the 95th annual Far Hills Races in New Jersey. The 2 5/8-mile Grand National attracted 13 nominees, and five of them made their most recent starts overseas.
