    He didn't win at the Derby, he won the Derby.

    1981.

    The year Aldaniti (a horse famous enough to have a flim made about his nd his Jockeys stories) won the Grand National.

    Shergar is more famous though, for what happened next. You obviously know nothing about horse racing.

    The Wayne Murty theory was pretty interesting. No mention of the Wayne Newton theory though...
