ENGLISH RACING STATISTICS.
Mr Leopold de Rothschild, with £30.207 10/, heads the list of winning owners for the past .English racing season, as a result of winning 53 racer. The Duke of Westminster, with £16.295 10/, comes second, a considerable dista.nce from the first. Sir J. Blundell Maple occupies third position with £12.313 10/. nearly £4.000 below his Grace of Westminster. Had Nun Nicer turned the tables upon Airs and Graces in the Oaks Sir Blundell Maple would have stood much higher, and it was considered a vary unfortunate miss, as on previous performances of the two fillies Nun Nicer appeared on paper to have the race safe. Mr Larnach, with £11,527, is the only
other owner to reach five figures, a
result due in a large measure to the success of Jeddah and Victoria May.
The list of winning sires in England had just been compiled when the latest* files were posted. The premier position for 1898 is held by Galopin. with a score of £21,G98. Galopin is now 2G years old. Nearly one-half of the above total was contributed by Goletta. Bonavista, the sire next in order, has £17.510 to his credit, of which amount no less than £14,563 was won by Cyllene, and this notwithstanding the fact that his owner, Mr Rose, unfortunately for him, omitted to enter the colt for the classic events. Ayrshire, the sire of Mr W. T. Jones' filly, Airs and Graces, the winner of the last Oaks, stands third
with £15,973. Fourth comes Gallinule.
whose stock won £15.908, represented by 26 races —the largest number to the credit of any single sire for the past season —including the St. Legei\ won by Wildfowler.
