Best Course Winner

The most successful horse to run the Aintree racecourse is Red Rum, winning the Grand National on this circuit in 1973, 1974 and 1977. He also managed second place in the race in 1975 and 1976.

It was Donal McCain who trained Red Rum, running him along the beach at Southport, building up his stamina and getting him in to the shape that made him a great victor.
