MISCELLANEOUS.

I would draw special attention to Hunter and Nolan's sale by auction on Friduy nexb ab 12 noon of the greab sprinter St. Clements. Those in search of a stallion for the approaching season should not overlook this son of St. Leger and Satanella. The *■ year-old gelding Torpedo, who shaped so well in the Victoria Handicap on Saturday laßb at Ellerslie, also goes up for sale at the same time. Both horses are for positive eale. Donovan and Wai-iti will also be BUmT'Morrin, the Wellington Park ebud master, can take credit unto himself for Seeding a really greab colt in Multiform. iTEf from V table in last. «•£> -Referee," giving tbe lisb of ™*m*%* year-olds of the season up to h-aß.er Tue.dTy, thab Multiform is ab bhe top of The tree with £2,761 13s to his credit. Thia ia the largest amounb won by a two-y.ar-3d ia bhe annals of New Zealand Sg and has net been beaten by a horse of any age since St. Hippo, as a *-WgJold, won £2,800 12. in the season of 1892----q*.

Weights for bhe firsb day's racing of the Takapuna Jockey Club Winter Meebing are due on 7th May. The A.J.C. Doncaster Handicap winner Superb ia described aßa good-looking son of Splendor out of Canary, by Lapidißb oub of Rosalie, by Peter Wilkins. He had no public form of any sort to recommend him for the evenb. He is trained by Mr James Chambers, of Cardigan fame. Tho jockey C. Wood, whoee license to ride was recently renewed, after having been wifihdrawn for nearly niae years, has been retained to steer the Irish-bred colt Galtee More in the English Derby. "Word comes from Bathuret (N.S.W.) to bhe effect bhab Fairfield, bbc champion show jumper of Ansbralia, broke one of hiß legs while fencing a few days age, and was deßbroyed. Fairfield was the winner of upwards of 100 prizes, and hiß labe owner, who recently gave £450 pounds for him, intended bhat be should compete in England.

The South Auckland Racing Clnb has a balance of £34 4s 6d in band over the last race meeting. The members are determined if possible to wipe off »11 liabilities due over the 1896 meeting, and Messrs Slade, Warbrick and Edgecumbe were appointed a Committee with power to deal with them and reporb ab bhe annual meebing of bhe club in August. " Spectator " writes :—Waiuku is by New Zealand'e crack sire, Sb. Leger, from Musket Maid, a daughter of Mulsket, whose dam was said to be by Dainty Ariel. She was a capibal harneaa mare, one bhab used to be kepb for hauling a water-cart in tbe little town in which Waiuku was bred, and from which he gebs hia name. Some breeders will havo their ideas ojf producing racehorses somewhat shaken when they look up their stud books for pedigrees of the winners of the C.J.C double, who are undoubtedly chance horses.

The figure of 1,150 guineas realised by Cocos — the yearling half-brother bo Camoola, and full brother to Cobbitty, Coolalta and Coil —at the Rand wick sales a few days back, is she biggesb paid for one of the same ago in New South Wales since bho days when four figure sales used to be effected under the Hobartville Oaks. Cocos was sbarbed ab 100 guineas, and after some very merry bidding by Messrs J. Cobb, T. Payten (representing Mr W. Bailey, the owner of the 1000-guinea c»lb Coil), and W. Leonard, 100 guineas and 50 guineas bids following each other in quick succession, the colb fell to the nod of Mr Payten for 1,150 guineas. He will be prepared at Randwick, in the same stable as Coil.

The English sire St. Simon brought his owner, the Duke of Portland, £16,000 for stud fees during the lasb two seasons. The demand for Sb. Simon's services are so greab that bis fee next season will be 500gs per mare.

So far the running of Mr S. H. Gollan's recenb purchase (Erl King) in England has been disappointing. The Victorian horse was backed ab 5 to 1 in a field of eeven for the Crown Handicap Hurdle Race at Windsor on March 3rd. He carriod list 71b and finished fourth, a long way from tho winner, The Ram, who waa favourite.

Among the visitors at the A.J.C. Autumn Meebing waa Mr T. Hales, tho "grand horseman " who piloted Abercorn, Grand Flaneur, Trident and many obher equine heroes of the pasb to victory. Mr Hales, who is well and hearty, now resides on his station, Haleswood, near Tallangabba, Upper Murray districb, Victoria, where he devotes his time to breeding blood stock.

On breeding lines (writea " Spectator ") Gold.pur is something of a chance horte, though he ia aboub the besb Rubezahl haa lefb, and hia dam Roseepur ia by Hotspur, a son of imported Honetiah from Ranee, the dam of Leo, winner of the Australian Champion Race of 1893. Ranee waa, however, of doubtful origin. Rosespur's dam, Rosemary, was by Elewick, from Myrtle, whose dam waa by an imported Arab horee colled Ackabar. He was purchased a few weeks prior to Christmaß for £14. Stroug efforts are ence more being mado to have the totalisator legalised in Australia. The Australian Jockey Club aro moving in tbe matter, and now comes word by cable thab tho V.R.C. Commibtee, by a large majority, docided to strongly support the introduction of the totalisator, and to aek for the co-operation of country clubs. By cable comes word from Adelaide that the stallion Neckersgab waa found dead in hia box ab Morpliatville ebud farm. Neckeragab waa goo by Talk o' bhe Hill from Miss Giraffe (imported, dam of Rapid Bay, Miami, King Tom, and Wild Eagle). He waa sire of Nawatead, Portsea, Dunlop, Sedibion, Maddelina, Destiny, Keera, Bruin, Quality, Anneelay, Montalto, Lord Hopetouo, Hortensius, and many others.
