Mr J. Gubbins, owner of Galtee More, heads the list of winning owners in England for the past season. He had two winners, who accounted for eight races, valued at £22,739. Of this amount the " triple-crowned hero " earned all but £102, the latter sum being the winnings of his stable companion, Holy Cross. Mr Leopold de Rothschild won 32 races, worth in the aggregate £17,484, and the Prince of Wales is third on the list with £15,770, to which sum Persimmon was the chief contributor. Then follow Lord Rosebery (£15,574) and M. R. Lebaudy (£13,680). Galtee More, the hero of the past racing season in England, was not far short of winning twice as much money in stakes as the next best performer, for while his share of prize money totalled £22,037, Persimmon, who was second, Avon the Prince of Wales', £12,665. Velasquez was third, with £9,107 ; and there was a further great drop to Goletta (fourth), there being £5,796 opposite her name ; while Orzilwon £5,036.

Darling, with a total of £29,237—0f which Galtel Nore is responsible for £22,627 — the result of his successes in the Two Thousand Guineas, Newmarket Stakes, the Derby, the Prince of Wales Stakes at Ascot, the Sandringham Cup at Sandown Park, the St. Leger, and the Sandown Park Great Foal Stakes.
