A lamentable incident is reported by an exchange to have occured at Flemington. Just as Dreadnought landed a winnei- for the Australian Cup an elderly man was observed to drop dead on the course. He was identified as one Fox, a tile layer, who resided at Caulfield. He had backed the double of Churchill and Dreadnought for £200, and the excitement of winning was too much for him. He had been under the care of a doctor for an affection of the heart, and had been warned against exiting himself.
