Everard Firebrace Darlot (1860–1937)

from Sunday Times

The death occurred in Perth on Friday of Mr. Everard Darlot, one of the State's best known pastoralists and a member of the W.A.Turf Club committee. Hailing originally from Deniliquin, New South Wales, deceased came to this State in the early 80's and took up pastoral property on the Murchison, where he was joined a little later by his brother Leonard, who survives him. Under the nom de plume of "E. Firebrace," deceased raced many horses on local courses, as did also his brother, who used the name of "L. Hawthorne." The most notable of the horses to carry the red and white hoops of Mr. Everard Darlot was Limber, whose wins included the W.A.T.C. Railway Stakes and Kalgoorlie Cup, and whose minor places included a second in the Perth Cup and a third the Australian Cup. Other horses which deceased raced, or was interested in with his brother, were Keston and Culroy (two of the three dead heaters for first in the 1904 W.A. Derby, the run-off of which was won by Keston), St. Ives (a W.A. Derby winner), Wairiri (another W.A. Derby winner and third in the V.R.C. New- market. Handicap) and Lucky Dog. The funeral takes place at Karrakatta to-morrow (Monday) at 10.50.
