The greatest Grand National horse of all time, Red Rum ran in the race five times in consecutive years, winning three times and coming second twice (1975 and 1976), a record it is inconceivable can ever be equalled. His first victory, beating Crisp in a new record time, is widely regarded as the greatest Grand National of modern times. Red Rum is buried by the winning post at Aintree
