Red Marauder

Red Marauder is a Thoroughbred race horse that won a dramatic 2001 renewal of the Grand National. Only four horses completed the race successfully - two of those having been remounted - due partly to the desperate conditions at Aintree and mainly thanks to the loose horse Paddy's Return causing mayhem at the Canal Turn.

Red Marauder and Smarty had the race to themselves for much of the second circuit before the former surged clear of his tired rival from two out to record a distance victory.

The Grand National win was a first for Sunderland based horse owner Norman Mason who had entered Red Marauder in the previous year's race where he fell.

Trainer Richard Guest was also the jockey that day and is currently in possession of the retired horse.
