Red Rum- The 1973 Grand National (Aintree)

Red Rum is perhaps the world's most famous racehorse. Red Rum's 1973 comeback victory from 30 lengths behind is often considered one of the greatest Grand Nationals in history. Red Rum beat the Australian chaser Crisp, carrying 23 pounds more, in what was a new record time of nine minutes, 1.9 seconds. The jockey on the historic day was Brian Fletcher and the horse was trained by Ginger McCain.
