when was the last time knowing that Henry the 8th had six wives fed anyone other than the teacher?

We don't all spend our leisure moments down the bookies.
There was a filly sired in 1972, whose dam was a mare called Seventh Bride, who was rather cleverly named One over Parr (geddit?) and who won several races including the 1975 Lancashire Oaks.
So I was able to make use of my knowledge that Henry VIII had six wives at the same time as spending my leisure moments down the bookies.
