    Description:

    Portrait of Henry Byron Moore.

    On 17 June 1881 Moore became secretary of the Victoria Racing Club, retaining the post until 1925. He saw the value of acquiring land at the back of Flemington, bought it himself when the committee refused, and willingly resold some at his purchase price when later required. His surveying knowledge helped the club to plan four new grandstands and create spacious lawns and gardens, especially of roses, making Flemington a world-class course. He developed the club in Australian racing eyes, made the Melbourne Cup a major annual occasion with complimentary tickets to entice celebrities, and helped racing generally by suggesting the registering of bookmakers. Seeing himself as a manager only, he missed no meetings but rarely watched a race and never placed a bet.

    From the original edition of the Australasian Sketcher.

    From the original edition of The Graphic.

    The Hackney Horse breed was developed in the 14th century in Norfolk when the King of England required powerful but attractive horses with an excellent trot, to be used for general purpose riding horses. Since roads were rudimentary in those times, Hackneys were a primary riding horse, riding being the common mode of equine transportation. The trotting horses were more suitable as war horses than amblers with their pacing gaits. As a result, in 1542 King Henry VIII required his wealthy subjects keep a specified number of trotting horse stallions for breeding use.  In about 1729 a Norfolk Trotter stallion and an Arabian stallion contributed to the foundation stock for the modern Hackney Horse. The resulting Norfolk Roadster, as it was known, was a heavily built horse that was used as a work horse by farmers and others. It was also a fast horse with good stamina.
