Tranquil Star was one of the hardiest and best performed Australian-bred Thoroughbred race-mares. She is the only mare to have won the double of the Caulfield Stakes, now known as the Yalumba Stakes, the Cox Plate, the most prestigious weight-for-age race in Australia. Tranquil Star won over distances ranging from 5 furlongs to 14 furlongs, she was inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame. She was bred by Messrs H. G. Raymond and H. B. Ranken at St Albans Stud near Geelong and was by the good imported sire, Gay Lothario, her dam was the non-winner, Lone Star, by a good sire in Great Star. Tranquil Star was a sister to the non stakes-winners, Sun Beau, Paringa and The Ritz, who were indifferent racehorses, she was a half-sister to Only Star, by Enfield, unable to win a race in 13 starts. Tranquil Star descended from Daffodils Dam through Lady Vivian, who were from the Bruce Lowe family 20. Tranquil Star was sold at Mackinnon and Cox's 1939 yearling sales and was purchased by the partners Messrs R. Cobden and T. G. Jones for 600 guineas.
She was owned by T. G. Jones in partnership with Arthur Cobden and trained by Ron Cameron during her racing career; as a two-year-old Tranquil Star had 13 race starts for two wins, in the V. R. C. Ottawa Stakes and Williamstown Juvenile Handicap, plus four seconds for that season. In her three-year-old racing season Tranquil Star had 15 race starts for wins in the V. R. C. Edward Manifold Stakes, the V. A. T. C. St George Stakes, VRC St Leger Stakes and in her only trip to Sydney, she took out the now graded Group one, A. J. C. Chipping Norton Stakes plus the Cumberland Plate, she was the only filly in the field when she finished second to Lucrative in the Victoria Derby and was second again when defeated by a neck in the VRC Oaks during the season. At her first four-year-old start Tranquil Star ran second in the, Underwood Stakes, followed this with a second to Lucrative in the Caulfield Stakes before again running second in the Moonee Valley W. S. Cox Plate to champion Beau Vite plus another second in the C F Orr Stakes.
She won VRC C. M. Lloyd Stakes and Moonee Valley Alister Clark was third in the Williamstown Cup, she finished the season with 21 starts for 4 seconds and 4 thirds. Tranquil Star won the Moonee Valley Quality Handicap defeated True Flight in the Caulfield Stakes, before winning the Caulfield Cup, the W. S. Cox Plate with K. Smith in the saddle and the V. R. C. LKS Mackinnon Stakes in four successive runs before winning the C. M. Lloyd Stakes. In winning the Cox Plate she became the only mare to win the Caulfield Stakes and the Cox Plate double. During the season she had 14 starts for 6 wins in major races, but was unplaced in her other starts for this season; as a six-year-old in 1943 Tranquil Star was beaten narrowly by Amana in the Caulfield Stakes, V. R. C. Melbourne Stakes and L. K. S. Mackinnon Stakes but Tranquil Star gained revenge on Amana in the St George Stakes by relegating him into second place. Tranquil Star placed second in V. A. T. C. Memsie Stakes and VRC C. M. Lloyd Stakes as well as placing third in the C F Orr Stakes and Underwood Stakes.
During her final start of the 1944 season Tranquil Star fractured her jaw so badly that it had to be wired. It was only the patient attention of her trainer and her iron constitution enabled her to survive this disaster, her tally for this season was 14 starts for 5 seconds and 2 thirds. In winning her second W. S. Cox Plate Tranquil Star became the first seven-year-old mare, the only one of two to win this prestigious race at that age. Winx was the only other one to accomplish this achievement, she won her second L. K. S. Mackinnon Stakes plus the C. M. Lloyd Stakes and the V. A. T. C. St George Stakes. Tranquil Star finished second in the Williamstown Underwood Stakes, J. J. Liston Stakes and Moonee Valley Glenara Handicap, she placed third in the Melbourne Stakes and Caulfield Stakes and in V. R. C. Essendon Stakes, her defeat in the Essendon Stakes was attributed by her trainer, Ron Cameron to the heat, as she had been beaten before under similar conditions. In her final season as an eight-year-old Tranquil Star won her third LKS Mackinnon Stakes, the six furlong weight-for-age William Reid Stakes and the Memsie Stakes.
She placed second in VRC C. B. Fisher Plate and VATC Eclipse Stakes plus thirds in the Caulfield Stakes in which she conceded weight to Bernborough at his peak, the Linlithgow Stakes. During her long and distinguished racing career Tranquil Star had 111 starts for 23 wins, including 9 wins at what would now be regarded as group one level, she scored 20 seconds and 12 thirds for a total of £26,690 in prize-money which made her Australasia's greatest stake-winning mare. Tranquil Star’s last public appearance was before a large crowd on 24 March 1946 at Olympic Park, Victoria. A. Breasley was her rider and her trainer Ron Cameron attended. Retired to stud Tranquil Star was a good brood mare that produced nine foals, of which seven were raced and three were winners, her progeny were: 1947 Chestnut filly, Tranquil Dawn by Dhoti, unplaced in five starts, became 5th dam of Calaway Gal 1948 Chestnut filly, Tranquil Dusk by Dhoti, two unplaced starts, dam of Ivanhoe 1949 Chestnut filly, Light O’Star by Dhoti, two unplaced starts 1950 mi
Eurythmic was a versatile Australian-bred Thoroughbred racehorse who had the ability to produce a brilliant finishing run in staying races and he won important sprint races, too. At four he won 12 of his 13 starts including the Caulfield Sydney Cup; when Eurythmic finished racing he was the greatest stake-winner in Australia. He was inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame, he was bred by the young breeder, Noel Thompson at the Yarraman Stud, west of Scone, New South Wales. Eurythmic was by the good racehorse, his dam was the good racemare and useful broodmare, Bob Cherry by the good sire, Bobadil from Ardea by Wallace, he was inbred to St Simon in the fourth generation of his pedigree. Eurythmic was sold to E. Lee Steere of Perth, he was taken to Western Australia and trained by John Kelly for his two- and three-year-old racing in that state. His first start was in the WATC Initial Stakes, but he was unplaced to the two-year-old Eragoon, to whom he finished third at his next start. At their next meeting in the WATC Nursery Handicap Eurythmic was in receipt of two stone in weight and defeated his former victor by five lengths.
This pair met again in the Karrakatta Plate over five furlongs, at equal weights, Eurythmic won by 1½ lengths. Eurythmic was unplaced in the Claremont Handicap and concluded his first season of racing by winning the WATC Sires Produce Stakes by 3½ lengths. Eurythmic won seven of his eight starts as a three-year-old, including the WATC Grove Handicap from a big field, the WATC Derby, three days dead-heated with the outsider Rivose in the Perth Cup; the pair covered the distance in 3:25, a record for the 2 miles. He won the weight for age C B Cox Stakes, WATC Osborne Stakes and finished the season with a win in the WATC St Leger, he had finished his three-year-old season as the undisputed champion of Western Australia. He was taken east at the beginning of his four-year-old career to be trained by Jack Holt in Melbourne. Eurythmic won the VATC Memsie Stakes, starting at 20 to 1, was installed as favourite for the VRC October Stakes, in which he beat Ethiopian by 1¼ lengths. During October he won the Caulfield Stakes, the Caulfield Cup, the Melbourne Stakes, his eleventh consecutive victory.
The following week he suffered his only defeat for the season, running fourth to Poitrel in the Melbourne Cup. Eurythmic won his next eight races: the CB Fisher Plate, Essendon Stakes, VRC Governor's Plate and King's Plate, AJC Autumn Stakes, Sydney Cup and the Cumberland Stakes, he finished the season with a tally of 12 wins from 13 starts. Eurythmic won his first five-year-old race, the Memsie Stakes, a race which he would win for three consecutive years. In the October Stakes Tangalooma defeated Eurythmic by a short half-head. Next Eurythmic won Herbert Power Stakes and the VRC Melbourne Stakes. In the Melbourne Cup he was pulled up. In the VATC St George Stakes he conceded the second place-getter, Harvest King, more than 2 stone, was penalised 20-pounds for his win when the weights were issued for the VATC Futurity Stakes, which he duly won carrying 10 stone 7 pounds. Eurythmic's prize money for this race led to him overtaking Carbine as the greatest Australian stake winner to that time, he was unplaced in the Newmarket Handicap field, won the C. M. Lloyd Stakes at, ran third in the AJC Autumn Stakes and in the Cumberland Stakes.
In his last season of racing Eurythmic won both the Memsie Stakes and Caulfield Stakes for the third year in succession, ran second in the Herbert Power Stakes, third in the Melbourne Stakes. In his final four starts he finished second in the VATC St George Stakes, VATC Futurity Stakes, VRC Essendon Stakes, C. M. Lloyd Stakes. By the time he had finished racing as a six-year-old he was the greatest stake-winner in Australia, with winnings of more than £36,000. Eurythmic stood his first season in Victoria and was relocated to Western Australia, he died there before the end of the spring in 1925, after spending less than two full seasons at stud. It was discovered that he had an enlarged heart, attributed to heart strain caused from exertion during his racing, his skeleton was displayed in the Western Australian Museum. Eurythmic was an indifferent sire. Two of his daughters were successful broodmares though: Eumilia, 1924, by or Eurythmic was the dam of two stakes-winners, King's Knave and Tapestry Soaring, 1924, was the dam of Ethyia and The Darter Eurythmic was inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame in 2005.

World War II
World War II known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. A state of total war emerged, directly involving more than 100 million people from over 30 countries; the major participants threw their entire economic and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China, it included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease, the only use of nuclear weapons in war. Japan, which aimed to dominate Asia and the Pacific, was at war with China by 1937, though neither side had declared war on the other. World War II is said to have begun on 1 September 1939, with the invasion of Poland by Germany and subsequent declarations of war on Germany by France and the United Kingdom.
From late 1939 to early 1941, in a series of campaigns and treaties, Germany conquered or controlled much of continental Europe, formed the Axis alliance with Italy and Japan. Under the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact of August 1939, Germany and the Soviet Union partitioned and annexed territories of their European neighbours, Finland and the Baltic states. Following the onset of campaigns in North Africa and East Africa, the fall of France in mid 1940, the war continued between the European Axis powers and the British Empire. War in the Balkans, the aerial Battle of Britain, the Blitz, the long Battle of the Atlantic followed. On 22 June 1941, the European Axis powers launched an invasion of the Soviet Union, opening the largest land theatre of war in history; this Eastern Front trapped most crucially the German Wehrmacht, into a war of attrition. In December 1941, Japan launched a surprise attack on the United States as well as European colonies in the Pacific. Following an immediate U. S. declaration of war against Japan, supported by one from Great Britain, the European Axis powers declared war on the U.
S. in solidarity with their Japanese ally. Rapid Japanese conquests over much of the Western Pacific ensued, perceived by many in Asia as liberation from Western dominance and resulting in the support of several armies from defeated territories; the Axis advance in the Pacific halted in 1942. Key setbacks in 1943, which included a series of German defeats on the Eastern Front, the Allied invasions of Sicily and Italy, Allied victories in the Pacific, cost the Axis its initiative and forced it into strategic retreat on all fronts. In 1944, the Western Allies invaded German-occupied France, while the Soviet Union regained its territorial losses and turned toward Germany and its allies. During 1944 and 1945 the Japanese suffered major reverses in mainland Asia in Central China, South China and Burma, while the Allies crippled the Japanese Navy and captured key Western Pacific islands; the war in Europe concluded with an invasion of Germany by the Western Allies and the Soviet Union, culminating in the capture of Berlin by Soviet troops, the suicide of Adolf Hitler and the German unconditional surrender on 8 May 1945.
Following the Potsdam Declaration by the Allies on 26 July 1945 and the refusal of Japan to surrender under its terms, the United States dropped atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on 6 and 9 August respectively. With an invasion of the Japanese archipelago imminent, the possibility of additional atomic bombings, the Soviet entry into the war against Japan and its invasion of Manchuria, Japan announced its intention to surrender on 15 August 1945, cementing total victory in Asia for the Allies. Tribunals were set up by fiat by the Allies and war crimes trials were conducted in the wake of the war both against the Germans and the Japanese. World War II changed the political social structure of the globe; the United Nations was established to foster international co-operation and prevent future conflicts. The Soviet Union and United States emerged as rival superpowers, setting the stage for the nearly half-century long Cold War. In the wake of European devastation, the influence of its great powers waned, triggering the decolonisation of Africa and Asia.
Most countries whose industries had been damaged moved towards economic expansion. Political integration in Europe, emerged as an effort to end pre-war enmities and create a common identity; the start of the war in Europe is held to be 1 September 1939, beginning with the German invasion of Poland. The dates for the beginning of war in the Pacific include the start of the Second Sino-Japanese War on 7 July 1937, or the Japanese invasion of Manchuria on 19 September 1931. Others follow the British historian A. J. P. Taylor, who held that the Sino-Japanese War and war in Europe and its colonies occurred and the two wars merged in 1941; this article uses the conventional dating. Other starting dates sometimes used for World War II include the Italian invasion of Abyssinia on 3 October 1935; the British historian Antony Beevor views the beginning of World War II as the Battles of Khalkhin Gol fought between Japan and the fo
Ladbrokes Coral Group plc is a British based betting and gambling company. It is based in London, it owned the Hilton hotel brand outside the United States, was known as Hilton Group plc from 1999 to 2006. In November 2016, Ladbrokes acquired its rival, Gala Coral Group, changed its name to Ladbrokes Coral; the company was listed on the London Stock Exchange, was a member of the FTSE 250 Index, until it was acquired by GVC Holdings in March 2018. The company was founded by Messrs. Schwind and Pennington in 1886, as commission agents for horses trained at Ladbroke Hall in Warwickshire; the name Ladbrokes was adopted in 1902 when one Arthur Bendir joined the partnership and operations were moved to London. Ladbrokes' first London offices were situated in the vicinity of the Strand moving to Hanover Square in 1906 and, in 1913, the firm graduated to Six Old Burlington Street, Mayfair. From 1913 to 1956, Ladbrokes' clientele was drawn from the ranks of the British aristocracy and upper classes, many of whom were members of the elite gentlemen's clubs in the St James's area of Central London.
Unusually for the times, Ladbrokes' principal long time representative on British racecourses was a woman, Helen Vernet. Having joined the firm in 1919, she was made a partner in 1928 and remained with the firm until shortly before her death in 1956, at the age of 80. Following the end of World War II, the fortunes of Ladbrokes were in steady decline, brought about by a combination of an austere postwar economic climate, a dwindling client base, reluctance to change the firm's specialised approach to bookmaking; as a result, in 1956, the company was acquired by Mark Stein and his nephew, Cyril Stein for a reported £100,000. In 1961, the government legalised betting shops under the Betting and Gaming Act; as managing director, Stein used profits from the traditional areas of the business to establish a chain of betting shops. The company first diversified outside of the betting business by taking a major stake in the Dragonara Palace in Malta, a casino and hotel which opened its first phase in 1964.
In 1967, Ladbrokes was floated on the London Stock Exchange. From 1967 to 1973, Ladbroke's retail betting business grew from less than 50 shops to 1,135, the company expanded its ventures to include bingo clubs, hotels under the Dragonara brand, casinos in London, holiday centres, real estate investments. In 1975, the company moved into racecourse management by purchasing Lingfield Park; this was followed with the acquisitions in 1976 of Perry Barr Stadium and Totalisators and Greyhound Holdings, which owned six greyhound racing stadia at Brough Park, Crayford & Bexleyheath, Gosforth and Monmore. Arthur Aldridge of the Greyhound Racing Association, joined Ladbroke as Racing Director; the company was rocked by scandal in 1979 with the exposure of illegal marketing schemes at its London casinos, including the bribery of a police officer to obtain information about high rollers at competing casinos. As a result, Ladbroke was forced to close its four casinos in London, which had accounted for 40 percent of the company's profits.
The company acquired Texas Homecare, a chain of DIY stores, in 1986. In October 1987, it acquired Hilton International from Allegis Corporation for £645 million, gaining 91 hotels, the rights to the Hilton brand outside of the United States. In 1989, Ladbrokes acquired Vernons Football Pools. Stein retired in January 1994, under pressure from investors because of the company's rising debts and losses. Under new management, Ladbroke undertook an effort to focus on its core areas of hotels and gambling, to divest other parts of its business. Texas Homecare was sold to J Sainsbury plc in January 1995 for £290 million. Ladbroke's extensive portfolio of commercial and residential real estate, valued at £1 billion in 1993, was sold off in pieces, by March 1997, was down to £70 million; as part of its redoubled focus on gambling, Ladbroke returned to casinos in September 1994, with a £50 million purchase of three clubs in London, which it stated was the first step in building an international casino business.
In September 1998, Ladbroke purchased Coral, a chain of betting shops with 891 locations, from Bass plc for £363 million. The UK Government, ordered the company to sell Coral after the Monopolies and Mergers Commission found that the acquisition was anti-competitive; the Coral business, except for 59 shops in Ireland and Jersey, was sold in a management buyout financed by Morgan Grenfell Private Equity for £390 million in February 1999. In March 1999, the company acquired Stakis Hotels for £1.3 billion, gaining 53 hotels and 22 casinos. That year, Ladbroke renamed itself as Hilton Group plc, to reflect its increasing focus on the hotel business, which had come to represent over 80 percent of the company's assets. In August 1999, Hilton Group decided to dispose of its gambling operations outside of Europe, due to disappointing results. Most of the assets, including racetracks and casinos in the United States and bingo and betting businesses in South America, were sold by 2001. In addition, the company sold its 27 casinos in the United Kingdom to the Gala Group in December 2000 for £236 million.
In February 2006, the company sold its hotel operations to Hilton Hotels Corporation for £3.5 billion, once more rebranded itself as Ladbrokes plc. In March 2007, the Vernons brand was sold to Sportech. Following the introduction of the Gambling Act 2005 in the United Kingdom and the subsequent relaxation of advertising laws for gambling companies in 2007, a television campaign by Ladbrokes, that included a host of ex professional footballers, was the first to result in complaints to the Advertising Standards Authority.
Flemington Racecourse is a major horse racing venue located in Melbourne, Australia. It is most notable for hosting the Melbourne Cup, the world's richest handicap and the world's richest 3200 metre horse race; the racecourse is situated on low alluvial flats, next to the Maribyrnong River. The area was first used for horse racing in March 1840; the Flemington Racecourse site comprises 1.27 square kilometres of Crown land. The course was leased to the Victoria Turf Club in 1848, which merged with the Victoria Jockey Club in 1864 to form the Victoria Racing Club; the first Melbourne Cup was run in 1861. In 1871 the Victoria Racing Club Act was passed, giving the VRC legal control over Flemington Racecourse; the racecourse is shaped not unlike a pear, boasts a six-furlong straight known as'the Straight Six.' The track has a circumference of 2.312 kilometres and a final straight of 450 metres for race distances over 1.2 kilometres. Races are run in an anti-clockwise direction; the course contains three grandstands.
The biggest attendance was on Victoria Derby Day in 2006 when 129,069 people saw Efficient win the Victoria Derby. The racecourse has undergone a facelift in recent years, with the opening of a new $45 million grandstand in 2000 and the opening of a new members' grandstand in 2018, it contains a bronze statue of the famous racehorse Phar Lap, donated to the Club as part of Australia's bicentenary celebrations in 1988. The Hill Stand, built in 1977, houses the artist Harold Freedman's seven panel mural which traces the History of Racing; the work was commissioned to mark the Australian bicentenary in 1988. Flemington Racecourse was added to the Australian National Heritage List on 7 November 2006, announced during the 2006 Melbourne Cup; the site is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register. Flemington Racecourse today hosts many of Australia's top races, including the Melbourne Cup, Victoria Derby, VRC Oaks, Mackinnon Stakes, Newmarket Handicap, Australian Cup and Lightning Stakes; the site has its own railway branch line, which operates on race days, bringing visitors to the adjacent railway station.
It was serviced by Salt Water River station, before, demolished in the 1860s and replaced with a station on the present site. Trains depart from platforms 8 and 9 at Flinders Street Station; the No. 57 tram from the City stops at the Epsom Road entrance. Car spaces for the disabled are available and taxi ranks are located adjacent to the main entrances. Shuttle buses run from Epsom Road to the main turnstiles of the racecourse.

Bernborough was an outstanding Australian-bred Thoroughbred racehorse who competed from 1941 to 1946. He carried heavy weights in 15 consecutive wins that included the Doomben 10,000 while carrying 10 stone 5 pounds. Bernborough was foaled at Rosalie Plains near the township of Oakey in the Darling Downs in Queensland; the bay colt was by the good sire Emborough from Bern Maid by Bernard, the paternal grandson of Gainsborough, winner of the English Triple Crown in 1918. Bernborough first raced under the ownership of A. E. Hadwin. A Queensland trainer, J. Roberts leased the horse, he came to prominence racing at Toowoomba's Clifford Park when ridden to his first six wins by Les Watterson. Bernborough only raced at Toowoomba in Queensland as he was barred from racing at metropolitan tracks because of ownership doubts, his racing colours were orange, purple sleeves, black cap. His trainer was Harry Plant; when he was six years old, he was moved to Sydney and following his sale to A. O. Romano for 2,600 guineas, his nominations were accepted.
He began a winning streak of 15 races. His wins included the Newmarket Handicap at Flemington carrying 9 st 13 lb and the Doomben Cup under 10 st 11 lb, he started 37 times for 26 wins, 2 seconds, 1 third. On 2 November 1946, Bernborough had his last race in the LKS MacKinnon Stakes. Challenging for the lead just after entering the home straight, he suffered torn sesamoid ligaments and had to be pulled up; the great mare Flight, who had finished second to Bernborough on many occasions, went on to win. After recovering from his injuries, Bernborough was sold for a large sum to movie producer Louis B. Mayer for stud duties in the USA, where he went on to moderate success as a stallion at Spendthrift Farm in Lexington, Kentucky. Here he sired the winners of more than $4,500,000 in prize money and was placed high on the Leading sire in North America list. Bernborough's progeny included: Berseem, champion American sprinter Bernwood, established a new world record, 1 min. 33.8 seconds, for a mile. First Aid, won the Whitney Handicap and $223,527 Hook Money, sire of Shandon Belle Bernborough was one of the five inaugural inductees into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame, alongside other turf notables Carbine, Phar Lap, Kingston Town, Tulloch.
He is commemorated in the township of Oakey with a life-size bronze statue located outside the Jondaryan Council chambers. In 1978, he was honoured on a postage stamp issued by Australia Post.
