A tribute to Hollywood Park.

Only three fillies or mares have ever won the Hollywood Gold Cup. Name the horses and the year they won.

Time's up!

Answer:
Happy Issue was the first in 1944, followed by Two Lea in 1952 and Princessnesian in 1968. Sadly, these will remain the only three!

So far, nobody has an answer to my trivia question:

Name all fourteen prestigious horse races in the Emirates World Series Racing Championships between 1999 and 2005 in chronological order, the Emirates World Series is a series of prestigious international horse races from different countries or places worldwide.

The number of races included in the series didn't always include 14 races, so it's sort of an unanswerable question.
