AUCKLAND TROTTING CLUB'S AUTUMN MEETING.

The-concluding, day's racing in connection With the. Auckland Trotting Club's Autumn ■Meeting took place at Alexandra Park last Saturday. The weather was not'altogether favourable, several showers falling during the afternoon, which made the track greasy and against fast times. The'attendance was probably a record one for an antumn gathering. Mr. Ike Hill officiated as judge, Messrs. F. W. Read and Geo. Read as timekeepers, and Mr.' C. O'Connor as starter, the latter gentleman. being, in good form. As on the two previous "days, the conduct of the sport by the various officials, under the secretary. Mr. C. F. Mark, left nothing to be desired. - ■ ■'■ THE TOTALISATOR. With a good attendance; lt was naturally to be expected that speculation would be brisk, and in this there was no disappointment, as duMng the afternoon the staif of Messrs. W. Blomfleld and Co. handled the sum of £3426, which ls an increase of £736 on the corresponding day last year. The total for the gathering was £8392 10/, an increase of £660 10/- on the amount handled at the autumn gathering of 1908. Fifteen bookmakers were licensed on Saturday, 'the fees from this source amounting to £112 10/. " THE RACING. The racing was probably the finest yet seen at Alexandra Park, and there is no doubt that trotting ls making great headway in Auckland, aud ft ls only a matter of time ' when lt will be as popular as it ls lv Canterbury. One or £w0 matters, however, require stricter supervision by the stewards, the most particular being a stronger enforcement of the rule relating to riders and drivers talking to spectators nfter they leave the paddock. There may he uo harm ln 'this, but it looks suspicious to see a large crowd hanging about on the course, apparently, waitlug for information, and it should be put down with a firm hand —ln fact, the "mailed Some of the results on Saturday were appropriate for Easter time.

The features of Saturday's racing were undoubtedly LoM Elmo's attempt for the two' mile record and the race for the Highclass Trot. In the former, the Southern crack made a great attempt to get the time, but the sodden track was against him, and when the watches were stopped he was 4 3-5s outside the stipulated figures. In the attempt he was clocked to trot the flrst mile iv 2.17 2-5, but it has to be remembered that starting froni the two mile post he had only to breast the hill up the straight, once, whereas from the mile post he has to take lt on 'twice, which makes a big difference. After the two mile attempt the stewards met and decided tr# allow the horse another opportunity to secure the purse offered for the mile record, and he was started In the High-class Trot, which produced the best field from a class polut of viow we can recollect seeing at Epsom, and which included Lord Elmo, Specialist, aud Prlncesß Ena, a trio of exceptional brilliance. Lord Elmo again failed In his task, the watch showing 2.23 2-5, Princess Ena winning, after a good Aght up the straight with BarmegUie, in the goocf time, of 2.26.
