GALTEE MORES SUCCESSES.
The Irish-bred colt Galtee More continues his winning career in England, his latest achievement being gained in the Doncaster St. Leger run on the Town Moor on Wednesday last. By winning the St. Leger in addition to the Two Thousand Guineas and Derby in the one season, Galtee More takes rank with West Australian (1853), Gladiateur (18G5), Lord Lyon (18G6), Ormonde (1886), Common (1891), and Isinglass (1893), who each won the "triple crown." As a two-year-old Galtee More won four out of the five races lie started for, including the Middle Park Plate, and this season he has not tasted defeat, so that he must be an exceptionally good colt.
