The Akaroa Mail TUESDAY. MARCH 3, 1914. AKAROA COUNTY RACES.
Tub annual fixture of the Akaroa County Racing Club will be held at Motukarara on' Thursday. The entries are record ones, and, given fine weather, the races should be most meoessful. The club bas been to lome expense to get the track in really good order, and some interesting contests should be witnessed. One advantage of having tbe races in the Domain is the way in which the park lends itself to a day's picnic. Many Peninsula people regret tbe removal of the races from Little River, but really as long as a conveyance can be had to the River the train service is very convenient, and a start can be made from Little River on the way home at 5 50 p.m In the Waihora Park Trot no less than twenty seven horses have accepted, and in tbe Wairewa Trot Handicap twenty five horses, Eleven bosses have accepted for tbe Peninsula Onp—the popular race of the day— and all the other gallops are we I filled. There is no doubt that all vb.o travel to Motukarara will have c
day's first class sport, and we hope the officials, who have made every arrangement for the convenience of racegoers, will have a thoroughly successful day.
