A juicy 50/1 was the price chalked up about Forbra when it won the 1932 Grand National. Nice odds!

Forba was owned by a retired Bookmaker by the name of William Parsonage, and was ridden by experienced jockey Tim Hamley. The winner was by Foresight, and out of Thymbra.

The early part of the race was largely incident free until Beechers Brook where several departed the race and a pile up ensued.

After a spate of fallers four were left clear, these being Near East, KGB, Forba and Egremont. The race developed into a contest between Egremont and Forba, with Forbra eventually triumphing by three lengths.

Sadly Forbra would go on to lose its life at the track, breaking a leg at Newbury in 1934.
