Miinnehoma (1983 – July 2012) was an Irish bred and British trained Thoroughbred racehorse most famous for his victory in the 1994 Grand National at Aintree, ridden by Richard Dunwoody, trained by Martin Pipe and owned by Freddie Starr.[1][2][3]

Miinnehoma also won the 1992 Sun Alliance Chase and finished third to Master Oats in the 1995 Cheltenham Gold Cup at the age of twelve.

After retirement he spent the rest of his days at the stables of Martin Pipe until his death at the age of 29 in July 2012.[4]
