2/1 favourite in the Grand National! Sounds incredible, and to date it is the shortest priced favourite in the history of the race.
Yet this was the price that punters flocked to back Golden Miller at.
Sadly for the betting public Golden Miller and his jockey Gerry Wilson parted company at the second fence.
An audible groan stretched across the racetrack and thousands of betting tickets were thrown to the floor.
The decision was taken to race Golden Miller in the following day’s Champion Chase, “the Miller” started at even money, but once again unseated his jockey.
A furious Dorothy Paget subsequently removed all her horses from her Trainer Basil Briscoe!
The 1935 race went to Reynoldstown, who returned 22/1,
The jockey of the runner up (Blue Prince) Billy Parvin had to contend with a slipped saddle, and history might have been different if a buckle had been done up tighter!
