LEGENDARY Grand National winning trainer Ginger McCain has died this morning (Monday, September 19) aged 80.
McCain, of Cholmondeley, who guided Red Rum to three victories at Aintree in 1970s, had been battling cancer.
He won the world’s greatest steeplechase for a fourth time with Amberleigh House in 2004.
In 2006 he handed the reins to son Donald who won the Grand National with Ballabriggs this year.
