Golden Miller (1927–1957) was a Thoroughbred racehorse who is the only horse to have won both of the United Kingdom's premier steeplechase races - the Cheltenham Gold Cup and the Grand National - in the same year (1934), setting a new course record for Aintree in the National. The 1934 win was the middle of five consecutive Gold Cup victories, a Gold Cup record. He was trained by Basil Briscoe in Longstowe, Cambridgeshire and retired in 1939 with a record of 28 wins from 52 races. He was owned by the very eccentric Dorothy Paget. He is buried at Elsenham Stud, a working farm in Elsenham, West Essex.
- A coach operator, Tellings-Golden Miller, operating in South West London, is so called because its founder, on the brink of bankruptcy, wagered his remaining savings on the horse and won. Many of the firm's coaches have a portrait of the horse on the front or side of the vehicle.
- The village of Longstowe, Cambridgeshire used to have a public house called the Golden Miller, renamed from The Three Horseshoes in honour of the racehorse who was trained at Longstowe Hall. The pub closed in 2001.
