, The weights for the forthcoming Hawke's | Bay racei came to hand yesterday (1 burs- : day), too late for review this week. In the race for the Ascot Gold Vase ' (writes my London correspondent), Lord Bradford's Chippendale, who won the Cesarewitch in 1879, and this same race in 1880, was opposed by Mr Lefevre's Tristan, a much improved four-year-old by Hermit J out of Thrift, who ran Foxhall to a bind in the Cambridgeshire last autumn, and subsequently won the Jockey Club Cup. Plungers laid 3 to 1 on Tristan freely, and the odds were never in doubt, for he won easily by halt-a-dozen lengths. The Canterbury Tatter-alls have issued a list of defaulters pested at that institution, A copy may be seen at the office of the Auckland Racing Club.
Says "Sir Launcelot": "We were treated to a look at several twn.year-olds in the saddling paddock on the occasion of the Hunt Club Steeplechases. Vanguard was not out, but Cheviot was accompanied by Grip, Lis, and the two newly named yearlings, "Barnaby" by Korari—Awatea, and "Uudcis" by Albany—No Name. The son of Idalia was in clothing, but from what I saw of him, I should say he was particularly forward. Messrs Mason and Vallance had Turquoise down, but the son of Tubal Cain was very much in the rough, and of the others parading the paddock I was the most pleased with Mr G. Bate's (illy Minerva, who is a full sister to Chan, cetlor. Her contemporary and stable companion The Jilt, who is a full sister to Fleur-de-Lys, is also very promising, and in these two young ladies the white jacket aud blue cap will, if good looks go for anything, have two very formidable representatives during the season now soon to coaimenec." Mr Walters has at last decided on naming his young stock. The Hippo-campus-Slander filly has been named Hippodamia, aud the Hippocampus—Yattuiiua lilly, Hippporiua. Musketeer and Fusilecr are the names of the promising colts by Musket out of Yatterina, and their half-brother out of Fanny Fisher has been christened Torpedo, The two sons of "Xattendon and Peeress have the appropriate handles of Herculaneum and F itz Hercules. Tho aggregate value of the stakes run for this "year at Ascot exceeded £25,000, shewing the splendid average of £9-7 for each race. 'J he principal winner was Lord Bradford, 5,98550v5., of which Quicklime contributed 2,52550vs ; Retreat, I.7Go.sovs ; and Battlefield, 1,700-:ovs. Mr J. H. Houldswortb, with his two sisters, Rozelle and Ad.iana, secured 3,490<0vs ; aodM. Lefevte, 3,718-Ovs. with Tristan, the winner this year of seven races off the reel.
