Work was resumed on Thursday morning m a paddock below the Winchmore Homestead, and the Club were more fortunate m finding puss m greater numbers than the day before. In the early part of the day there was a rather nasty north west blow, which, however, fell off towards afternoon, and was succeeded by a cold temperature and slight rain. The arrangements were the same as on the previous day, and quite as satisfactory. In the All-aged Stakes the [ second round was got through, and the first round of the Sapling Stakes left incomplete on Wednesday was finished, and the second round got through. The following are the results :— ALL-AGED STAKES. 11. Pride of Erin beat Magic 11. Smoko beat Flying Spur. Aime'e beat Bishop Julius. Zara beat Strike a Light. Plato 11.a bye. Many pinned their faith on Bishop Julius, but he was put out by Mr McCann's clever little bitch, and Magic II. 1 also somewhat of a favorite, had to lower colors to Pride of Erin. The Dunedin crack Smoko was coming through his dogs with a run, and bade fair to land his backers' money, while Zara had a good chance to see the final. Sapling Stakes. I. (Continuation.) Mr •>• Dineen's brd d John L. (Three Springs —Minnie), beat MrW. Patching's blk and, w*b Jubilee (Ringwood—No
Name), Mr Lewis' blk and w d Sou' wester (Ringwood—Seabreeze) beat Mr H. Lee's blk and w b Countess (Forest Lad—Tell Tale II.) The meeting was continued yesterday m fine coursing weather, and the results were quite unexpected to many. The Christchurch bitch Pride of Erin, which had run a good dog m both first and second rounds, but had not attracted much attention, was not to be denied m the third round, putting out Smoko all the way. Plato 11. leashed with the local slut Aime'e, proved too heavy metal for her, and Zara ran a bye. In the fourth round Zara was drawn, and Plato 11. and Pride of Erin both ran byes. Then came the final; m which Plato 11. beat Pride of Erin and won the stake. Recapitulating, the card is as under :— All-Aged Stakes. 111. Pride of Erin beat Smoko. Plato 11. beat Aime'e. Zara a bye. IV. Zara withdrawn. Plato 11. an accidental bye. Pride of Erin a bye. FINAL. Mr J. Holland's f d Plato 11. (Salamandor—Fly) beat Mr A.
