Blackwooi) Abdallah —by Homer, entered by Mr Max Friedlander, is also like the "good wine" that "needs no wish." He appeared m the very pink of condition. He is a splendid-tempered horse, as quiet as a sheep, a strong recommendation m a sire. His popularity is evidenced by the fact that his list for the season is already very nearly full. Duncan Abdalcah, by Blaekwood Abdallah, dam Fanny, by Shales, also entered by Mr M. Friedlander, is a good all-round colt rising two, coal black, with white hind feet, of capital action, and having all the makings of a big strong horse, already measuring an inch over fifteen hands.
