- Description: Red Rum (bay gelding, May 3, 1965 - October 18, 1995. Sire: Quorum, dam: Mared) was a racehorse who achieved an unmatched historic treble when he won the Grand National in 1973, 1974 and 1977. In 1973 he beat the great Australian chaser, Crisp who carried 23 pounds more than Red Rum. Red Rum just beat home the champion after Crisp tried to lead all the way. It is considered one of the greatest Grand Nationals in history. He came second in 1975 and 1976. In his first two victories, he was ridden by Brian Fletcher. However in 1975, when L'Escargot was victorious, Fletcher was blamed for costing him victory by holding him back. In 1976 Tommy Stack replaced Fletcher, but was held off by Rag Trade. The following year Stack rode him to his triumphant third Grand National, considered one of the greatest moments in British sporting history. Not surprisingly, Red Rum became one of the best known and most loved racehorses in both the United Kingdom and Ireland.
