Red Marauder, Irish racehorse, Died at 26


Red Marauder was foaled on March 4, 1990, and died on November 22, 2016

He was an Irish racehorse

Marauder won the 2001 Grand National at 33/1.

There were only four horses completed the race successfully – two of which was 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.

Smarty and Red Marauder 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.

Which had been the slowest time recorded for a Grand National for one hundred and eighteen years.

But, 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.

The trainer Richard Guest was also the jockey that day and was in possession of the retired horse until its death.

Red Marauder passed away at 26 years old.
