TINWALD ANNUAL RACES.
The results of the four principal events at this meeting were published in yesterday's issue, and we now append details of the races decided after we went to press. Owing to a variety of circumstances the concluding items on the programme were much delayed, and the last event, the Hurry Scurry, was decided in tlie deer eat shades of evening. The Selling Hack Race was distinguished by one of the mo t flagrant cases of “ pulling" we ever witnessed. The rider of Brown Boy, a horse reported to be the notorious Pippen that has figured in similar escapades, had the greatest difficulty in preventing his mount winning. On returning to the paddock the jockey was hooted, and it was only the intervention of the police that saved the delinquent from more tangible indications of popular indignation. Constable Smart escorted the miscreant to the confines of the course, and recommended him to make the best possible use of the opportunity he had to escape a well merited retribution. The stewards met immediately after the race, and passed the following resolution :—“ That the rider of Brown Boy (Robert Boss) be disqualified for ever ; that all wagers on the race be declared off, and the totalisator money be returned to investors, less the usual commission."
