Hollywood at the Races

Discovered while performing red-hot Spanish dance numbers with her father at Agua Caliente, Rita Hayworth would become one of Hollywood’s most prominent movie stars and sex symbols. Her roles in Gilda and TheLadyfromShanghai and her dance partnership with Fred Astaire in YouWereNeverLovelier and You’llNeverGetRich showcased her dual talents as actress and dancer. But when Rita met Prince Aly Khan on the Riviera in 1948, she was swept off her feet by his charm and good looks. The son of the Aga Khan, Aly was one of the world’s leading Thoroughbred owner-breeders. When they married, Aly gave Rita several horses, including Double Rose, who finished second in the 1949 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. The marriage quickly unraveled, and Rita returned to Hollywood and her adoring fans.
