Twohill took Lady Clare and Rookby back to the Thames yesterday. There is a probability of his ■ fetching Princess of Thule to Auckland next week to finish her preparation for the A.R.C. Snmmcr Meeting. Eoyal ShPil knocked himself about a lot ■when he fell at the last fence in the Maiden Hurdles on the opening day of the Takapuna Spring Meeting.

The Sgaruawahia Racing Club nold thelt annual meeting on the 13th Inst, at JNgaruawabia. A special excursion train has been arranged for and the club can confidently expect a large attendance. Leolantis was the most successful sire at the recent Takapuna meeting, with three winning representatives; Soujt, Seaton Delava], and Tasman had two each, and Qjrenian, Insomnia, Catesby, Medallion, Ben Godfrey, Brigadier, and Explosion one each. — > When the field jumped oft itl the Va.nxhall Handicap at Tatapnna, last Wednesday, one of the competitors chopped right across the field, nearly bringing several of them down. It was lucky that at least two »f the runners were not thrown over the raiJs. The K.Z. Loan and Mercantile are holding a sale of racehorses at the Harp of Erin stables next Thursday, when the following highly-bred horses in training will be offered: Sweet Alice, Austerlitz, Sonoma, Kilderkin, Forth, Lady Farrington, and Apologne.

Mr B. Armitage, owner of Lady Annie, Informs mc that his mare met with a slight accident last Thursday and has been under the car? of the veterinary surgeon since. Mr Armitage was expecting the vet.'g report before accepting with the mare, but as he was unable to get it before the acceptances fell due he accepted on the off-chance. Mr Armitage wishes this fact to be made public, as there is a big probability of the mare being a non-starter in the Railway Handicap.

The longest flat race of the season in i France was run at Paris last month. This ■was the Prix Gladiateur, 3 miles 7 furlongs, at weight foe age. There were only lour runners. M. Edniond Blanc being represented by Gouvernant and Caantaan and M. J. de Bremond by Maximum and Toast. Odds of 100 to 30 were laid on M Edmond Blanc's stable, but backers went «own, as Maximum fairly outstaying Gouvernant, beat him home by eight lengths In 7.40 3-5, the other two finishing a lone way back. The prize money was 1200 sots added to a work of art of the value of 400 sots. In the Champion Stakes, U mile a t Newmarket, on the 17th of last month that great mare Pretty Polly simply made a hack of Hackler's Pride, for whom Sir T. Sykes recently gave 5000gs. Backers sent Pretty Polly out at 5 to 2 on. and sh? never gave them any anxiety. Hackler's Pride must have been in good form, too as on the following day she beat Nabot and Evergreen as she Jiked in a mile weieht for age race. On the day that Pretty Polly disposed of Hackler's Pride, the former's sister Adula was sent out at 11 to 10 on for the Newmarket Oaks, in which she was in receipt of 01b from Cherry Lass. The distance, 1J mile, was supposed to be somewhat against the latter, as In the St. Legcr she did not shape like a genuine stayer However, she stayed too well for Adula •whom she beat in a canter, and it is now reckoned that she must have been off colour when Challacombe and Polymelus gowned her in the Leger.
