About this product
- DescriptionRed Rum's classic win in the 1977 Grand National is the stuff of sporting legend. Red himself became a national treasure, and his charismatic trainer - the redoubtable Ginger McCain - became a sporting hero. While the public adored Ginger, there were those who sniped that he was a one-horse trainer. All that changed 27 years later when, in a thrilling race, Ginger won his fourth National with Amberleigh House, equalling the record of Fred Rimmer. Once again Ginger had taken the sporting world by storm. In the 70s, the popularity of Red Rum and Ginger almost single-handedly saved the great race when there were plans afoot to turn the track into a housing estate. Ginger himself is a remarkable individual - charming, forthright, t afraid to speak his mind and a hugely entertaining raconteur. This is his story, at times funny, sad, exciting and always captivating, told in his own inimitable style.
- Author BiographyGinger McCain - real name Donald - was born in 1930 and began his career as a trainer in 1952, with a small stable behind a second-hand car showroom in Southport. He trained the legendary Red Rum to three Grand National victories in '73, '74 and '77 and to two runner-up places. Red Rum died in 1995 but nine years later, Amberleigh House gave Ginger a record-equalling fourth National win. He now operates from a stable complex in Cholmondeley, Cheshire.
