- While at the Cheltenham Races, Grace Burgess pretended to be 'Lady Sarah of Connemara'.
- The Peaky Blinders stop the Lee Family from stealing money from Billy Kimber's men.
- Black Star Day: Because of Billy Kimber and his rivalry with the Peaky Blinders, the Lee family take over the Worcester Races and are able to take all the pitches successfully.
- Grace's Secret: a grey horse bought by Thomas Shelby. Cared for by Curly, Charlie Strong and May Carleton
- The auctioneer mentions that Grace's Secret is sired by The Tetrach from the mare Lady Josephine. Interestingly, a grey filly with the same breeding was born in 1921. Named Mumtaz Mahal, she went on the fastest two-year-old of all time.
- The Peaky Blinders confiscate the takings of Sabini's men and burn all his licenses at gunpoint. Usually bringing a rifle to a race is worthy of a 20-year jail sentence, but on this day Thomas Shelby distracts all the coppers, allowing them to bring the weapons without getting into trouble with the police.
- Location of the assassination of Field Marshal Henry Russell
