croft Raceway toppled onto the
track less than 80 yards from
the finish line as the crowd of
12,000 gasped.
Other drivers in the first heat
of a free-for-all pace sharply
swerved their horses to avoid
striking Mr. Miller’s body. As
his wife, the former Alice Vir

watched, a doctor hastened to
the stricken man’s side and five
minutes later pronounced him
dead of a heart attack.
Race All But Won.
Mr. Miller was driving his
mare Josedale Alate, bought for
$13,000 at auction four months
ago, in the day’s third event.
The race appeared to be all but
won when, coming into the
stretch, another driver saw Mr.
Miller waver and decided he was
in trouble.,
Britt Holloway, the track’s
secretary-manager, said Mr. Mil
ler was so sac out in front he
undoubtedly would have won.
Ninety-five degree heat was
believed to have contributed to
the tragedy ending nearly 50
years of racing for the veteran
turfman who won the first event

old Brightwood track here. Like
yesterday’s closing chapter, it
was a free-for-all pace.
Ever since 1907, he has been
driving harness racers and
breeding them. He has often
been acknowledged the Nation’s
consistently top driver. In 1949,
i when he was 70, he waS Amer
ica’s leading driver, with 105 vic
tories to his credit that year. He
had his best day in 1951 when
he won seven out of eight races
at Freehold, N. J.
His interest in harness racing
led in 1949 to his founding of
the $1.3 million Rosecroft Race

had a farm also called Rosecroft. i
Mr. Miller lived at 6025 Brink

His efforts at breeding the
harness horses were consistently
successful, and the breeding
farm on his estate was consid
ered to be the third largest in
the United States.
When, only a few years ago,
harness racing became a sport
involving millions of dollars, Mr.
Miller decried the scandals that
touched it. He stressed that the
racing itself was never to blame
but that whatever scandalous
action came about, was caused
by unethical Individuals who, es
pecially in the East, rose to the
management and operation of
the tracks.
Barred From Own Track.
Bearing the good of the sport
in mind,. Mr. Miller accepted a
decision by the Maryland Racing
Commission, which stated that
he could not compete in harness
races on his own track.
On March 29, Mr. Miller cele
brated both his 75th birthday
and his 50th wedding anniver
sary. That day he worked out
22 horses.
He used to point out that age
had nothing to do with harness
racing, because once in the
blood, the thrills of the sport
never left. One employe said of
Mr. Miller: “Never saw anything
like him. He goes at top speed
from 8 o’clock in the morning
until 8 o’clock at night, and in
between he wonders why there
isn’t more daylight.”
