Part Two of this series now looks at the how Ginger McCain's influence enabled Red Rum to become the famous race horse that he became Ndamukong Suh Womens Jersey , and with an interesting training regime too.
Against All Odds His Potential Would Be Realised
Red Rum s association with Liverpool began long before his reign as arguably the most famous racehorse in Britain. As previously mentioned, as a two year old he made his debut at Aintree, ending in a dead heat with Curlicue. This was however on the flat course at Aintree and not the famous National Hunt course we all know and love.
Interestingly, watching the race that day was none other than Ginger McCain, who's name would be forever associated with the famous Red Rum.
Although Red Rum suffered with a debilitating bone disease in his foot, Ginger McCain saw the potential of the horse and felt it was a minor obstacle that could be overcome. For many horses and their trainers, this would mean the end of a racing career before it even began, but not Red Rum.
Ginger McCain trained Red Rum in the sand and shallow waters at Southport in Merseyside Ryan Tannehill Womens Jersey , not far from Liverpool. It is believed by many experts that this is the reason that Rummy was able to overcome his disability and race at an unprecedented world cl[censored] level.
History In The Making
Ginger McCain now believed that Red Rum was in his prime, and in 1973 the racing public saw Red Rum, benefiting from the training on the local Southport sands, winning what is considered the most exciting Grand National race of all time.
Having been at one stage more than 20 lengths adrift of the giant Australian horse Crisp, ridden by Richard Pitman, the great horse kept going, running the race to absolute perfection. With Crisp showing signs of tiring, Red Rum would steadily eat into his lead Jordan Cameron Womens Jersey , and push on as they reached the famous elbow at Aintree.
Crisp was exhausted at this point, having lead the race from the start, but could only watch as Red Rum pipped him at the post to win a memorable race. This is perhaps the moment that signified Red Rum s destiny to become the famous race horse that he became.
And Rummy would repeat the feat the following year. In 1974 s race, Red Rum was listed as third favourite at 11 1, however he secured his second Grand National with a near perfect run. By the Canal Turn second time round he was right up with the leaders and yet still on the bridle! With four fences left he had the lead and never lost it.
Winning the 1973 and 1974 meant that Red Rum was the first horse since Reynolds Town back in the 1930's to win successive Grand Nationals, and at this stage the experts were predicting he was a famous race horse in the making.
In fact 1974 was arguably Red Rum's best season, as in addition to winning his second Grand National at Aintree he landed the Scottish National as well, and only narrowly lost out to Red Candle in the Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury.

I first learned of quinoa (KEEN-wah) from a woman who was a personal chef. She was from South Arica and we got chatting about food, one of my favourite topics.
She told that quinoa was a very popular food and especially amongst those concerned about health and in particular, about eating healthy grains. Quinoa was very popular among the Incas and is known as the only whole grain that contains all the essential amino acids. It is often referred to as the plete protein.
It is a very good source of iron, magnesium, vitamin E, potassium and fibre and many vegans and vegetarians choose to eat quinoa because it is gluten-free and relatively low in carbs pared to rice, pastas, millet and other starchy foods.
She told that there were a few different types of quinoa including white Cameron Wake Womens Jersey , black, and red. She told that red quinoa is considered the easiest for the body to absorb.
Think of cooking quinoa like you would rice. Although plain in taste, most people cook quinoa using the boil and simr thod using a broth to add flavour. Using a ratio of 1:2 quinoa to liquid, it will take about 25-30 minutes to cook. The quinoa can be pre-soaked or rinsed to clean and soften before cooking although most varieties sold in stores have undergone a cleaning process already.
To cook quinoa quickly, use less water, bring to a steady boil, and cook for fifteen minutes on high heat while keeping an eye on it so as not to burn as the water evaporates.
To bring out so of the nutty flavour, you might try toasting the quinoa. In a pan Larry Csonka Elite Jersey , bring to heat then add a small amount of oil. Add the quinoa and cook for a few minutes only, then boil like normal.
Quinoa is often eaten cold as a salad, mixed with lentils, chick peas, or any other legu or bean. Iíve even added frozen vegetables to the the last 5 minutes of cooking ti to add flavour. Because it is quite plain, sotis lemon juice, tangy vinaigrette, or a sweet sauce can add life to the quinoa.
One of my favourite ways to eat quinoa is to add a tin of salmon to it Dan Marino Elite Jersey , thereby adding another texture to the otherwise crunchy di.
If you want to discover sothing different to eat, and the rice, pastas, and other starches have run their course, give quinoa a try! Another grain in the pantry caní.
