Not sure what happened to posts....... but I think Ginger McCain deserves a mention so here are some comments from various presenters etc
Horse racing presenter Clare Balding:
Ginger McCain was 3 days short of his 81st birthday. He was an old-fashioned type & said what he thought but he was a character alright. Whenever I approached Ginger with a microphone it raised the heart rate. He might swear, say something offensive or be pertinent & funny ... Very sad for Beryl, Donald & the rest of the McCain family.
Sir Peter O'Sullevan, who commentated on all of Red Rum's Nationals for the BBC:
It was a career of remarkable achievement. He will always be remembered for Red Rum and rightly so because he and the horse appeared absolutely at the right time and were very much instrumental in saving the National at a period when it was very much in peril. Red Rum had a remarkable record. Five runs in the National, three victories and two seconds – unbelievable. And then he won it again years later with Amberleigh House. It was nice for Ginger to have the opportunity to show he wasn't just a one-horse trainer. He was a professional curmudgeon and he goes behind leaving very good memories.

He was a great man to talk with.
I met him a few times at Aintree. He bought me a pint once at the racecourse and we had a real good chat. I have fond memories of him, and of course thank him for Red Rum.
