The Stepniak colt Sir Artegal Is being prepared for his A.R.C. autumn engagements by T. A. Williams. The Explosion horse Pohutu fell on the road at Walpukarau last Friday, and injured both knees badly. Two boxes have been engaged at Green Lane for two of Mr G. P. Donnelly's horses, but J. Rae Iβ not expected to arrive with the pair until Thursday next. It is reported from the South that the Hawke s Bay Guineas winner Kopu went amiss a few weeks ago, and it is doubtful if he will be seen at his best at the Hawke'3 Bay Cup meeting in May. Bookmakers wishing to obtain licenses to bet at Ellerslle during the forthcoming A.R.C. Autumn Meeting must send in their applications accompanied by the necessary fee on or before Monday next, the sth Inst at 12 noon. A private cablegram received in Wellington states that Artlllerie is not likely to start in the Doncaster Handicap, but is being supported for the Sydney Cup. Artillerie is reported to be going exceptionally well In her work. Nominations for all events at the Manawatu Racing Club's Autnmn Meeting which takes place on the 2Sth and 29th April, close with the secretary, Mr J. M. Johnstone, Box 52, Palmerston North, on Monday nest the sth Inst., at 10 p.m. Particulars to hand show that the Soult colt Snowfoot was sent on a warm favourite for the Juvenile Stakes at Kosehlll, In which he was weighted at 8.4. Snowfoot, which was ridden by A. Oliver, did not begin well and eventually finished eighth. Mr W. Ryan is in receipt of advice from F. McGrath that Cachuca is standing up to his work in good style, and should, all going well in the meantime, be ready to take his part in the big Australian jumping events when the season rolls around. The "Weekly Press" devotes nearly a column to a criticism of the two steeplechases run at the recent Ohinemuri Meeting, and suggests that the stewards should give some explanation as early as possible for altering their decision in disqualifying Whale and Wilson. Probably the A.R.C. Metropolitan body will ask the question. A. Oliver, the New Zealand horseman had n. ride in five out of the six races at the repent Rosehlll (Sydney) meeting, but was only successful in once gaining a place. Oliver was on the back of Merel In the Trial Stakes. In which race the big smash np took place, which resulted in the death of poor Clayton, but, fortunately, he was on the outside of the field, and so escaped a nasty falL The proprietors of the Brisbane Newspaper Company, the publishers of the Brisbane ''Courier," whose sporting writer, "Sirdar," was recently warned off the Eagle Farm course, as the result on an Inquiry Into alleged corrupt practices on his part, have adopted a sometrhat original method of affording their representative opportunity to take observations. The company, or its sporting representative, has leased an allotment of land abutting on the boundary fence of the Brisbane racecourse, and close to the seven-furlong post, for strategic purposes. On this allotment Is a cottage, whoso back premises, commanding a view of the course and training tracks, serve admirably as a conning tower. There on Saturday the representative of the leading dally had to take his notes of the racing, and there he will have to note for a term both the morning gallops and the racing at Eagle Farm, the gates of which are closed against him. The allotment has been taken on a lease, which runs synchronously with the two years' term of the lessee's exclusion from the farm.
Mr G. F. Moore's private trainer. J. Hay, returned from Sydney by the Moeraki on Wednesday with Slgnor and Carlsslma. The former, it will be remembered, had to be withdrawn from his A.J.C. engagements ou account of having gone wrong. In conversation with Augur, of the "New Zealand Times," Hay stated he did not anticipate that the sterling little son of Pilgrim's Progress would have to be permanently retired from the track. It was only on his second appearance at Randwick, after his Flemington campaign, that- Signor went amiss. A tendon filled, and Hay deemed it wise not to persevere any further with his charge, whom he intends to blister, and hopes to have rea<ly for the fray again, next spring. Regarding the running of Signor in the Champion. Stakes on -the concluding day of the V.R.C. fixture, Hay stated that the going was very soft and slushy at Flemington, and, as after the Australian Cup Signor coughed a good deal, it was decided to keep him out in front in the Stakes, and thus avoid being freely bespattered with mud, with which, moving as he does with his head close to the ground, he got freely peppered when In behind anything Hay did not care to discuss the "flag incident" further than to say that be thought the Australian Press gave a rather exaggerated account of It. Hay's other string, Carisslma only started once, at Sandown Park. The company at the Melbourne suburban meetings was a good deal more formidable than the New Zealand mentor expected to meet

TURF TALK FROM THE SOUTH
(By Telegraph.—Special to "Star.") CHKISTOHURCH, this day. So far training operations at lUccarton have been confined entirely to local horses,, and, the tracks being heavy, work has not been of an instructive nature. Of Cutts' large team, FUtawny has been responsible for the most attractive gallops, and she Is finishing up her tasks much, better than was her wont. Husbandman has g,ot through a solid preparation, but there has been nothing particularly attractive about his work. prob-» ably from the fact of his having seldom bad <a companion. Glenculloch was galloping much better than the Derby -winner till Friday morning, when he went ellgihtly amiss. Broadsword has brightened up a lot of late, and Is now striding along much better than before the summer meeting. Others that have got through attractive tasks are Sea King, Tikltere, Sharpshooter, Thistledown, Orslno, I/ady Disdain and Zemlia. There is great dearth of Jumpers at Riccarton at present, and It looks as if local stables will be poorly represented at the Winter meetings. Pedometer, the two-year-old daughter of Stepnlak and Demeter, has been suffering from kidney troubles of late, which may explain her poor showing at the South Canterbury meetlnz. Valdlmar has been a trifle sore of late, but his two stable companions, AH Guns and Cymblform, have been getting through their tasks most pleasingly. The first of visiting horses to put in an appearance were Gold Thread and Gold Treasure, who arrived on Thursday in oharge of J. Rao. They are quartered at Yaldhurst Hotel stables. • Padua, a gelding 'by Telemeter, won both the principal events at the Kangitata meetIng on Thursday. A large number of visiting horses are expected to arrive next week, and their advent should Infuse a little life into training operations at Biccarton. By reason of her victory in the Farewell Handicap at the South Canterbury meetlus Passion will have to carry a olfcs. penalty In the Great Easter Handicap.
