WELLINGTON RACES. Wellington, Jan. 31. Some good work was done on the racecourse this morning. Luna did a sweater twice round, finishing well. Dan went two miles nicely, making friends by his resolute style of going. Lady Emma went by herself a fair gallop, and the two" year-olds, Legerdemain and Gitana, had a spin together. Randwick, who looks strong and well, went once round in sweaters, and was then joined by Badsworth went twice lound, finishing at a good pace. Grey Morans had a striding gallop of two miles. He looks all the better for his rest. Astronomer, while taking a canter, came to grief. The bandage on his off fore leg came undone, and the horse treading on it fell heavily, throwing Ray’s boy, who was on him. Fortunately, neither boy nor horse was severly hurt. Clarence did two miles very nicely, as did also Miss Domett. Libeller, with Wattie up, did an excellent two miles. Natator was the last to show up, and was sent two miles and a half in clothing.
