Ginger McCain

I was very sad to hear the news that Ginger McCain had died at the age of 80.
Mr McCain was responsible for me having my first betting experience. In 1973 my parents put a £1 bet on Red Rum for me for him to win the Grand National and I actually won and my love affair with Red Rum began. I also put a pound on him in 1974, 75,76 and 1977 when he won for the third time. The only other time I put a pound on a horse was when Minnehoma, since then I have not bet on another thing. Mr McCain was a fantastic trainer and he will be sadly missed.
