' TURF TALK FROM THE SOUTH. {By Telegraph:—Special to "Star.") CURISTOHUROU, this day. The local New Zealand Cup horses may be said to be going oa satisfactorily. There is a payment on lmday, when the following names Will probably be absent troin the list:—True Kuignt, Grand Hose, XignUiglit,' and Lovelorn, tor their prospects of success in a race of this description, appear very remote. At Sir George Clifford's Stonyhurst Stud Brave Heart, by Chinrauald—Safeguard, hae foaled a colt to Elevation, and Uold iie&E, by Stonyhurst—Golden Crest, a nlly (dead) to Treadmill. The popular Yaldhurst trainer, X: J. Mason, has been laid aside wits illness since the Grand National Meeting, but he Is making a good recovery, and ahou<d be able to resume his duties again iJi the near luture. Two Riccarf.on trailers, I\ MeGrath and H. C'utts, are coiiiiued to their rooms with the prevailing complaint, influenza. Arinamento waij given v schooling "task over the pony hurdles on Wednesday, and performed very creditably for a novice. The son of Lord iiossiyn changed hands during the week, his new owner being J. Lorgeliy. A six-year-old mare, by St. Paul—lrousiue, purchased by Mr. R. Fleming from amongst liie ijst of horses that J. It. Coxrigan, had here for sale during the National week, is the latest addition to H. Thomson's team. liurus and Ratepayer nave been, sent home to their owner's station at Leslie Hills, and the grey gelding King Gama, by Stronghold—Female Franchise, has taken their piace in W. Clarke's stable. King Uama was in training last summer, and ran successfully in a two-year-oid handicap at the Christchureh Haclng Club's Summer Meeting. Prior to being sent back to his i owner's station, tlie son of Stronghold had I failed to show any promise wormy of hte breeding, and it will be interesting to see whether age will do anything for him. Mr. F. Nelligan was on the Kiccarton course on Friday to see his two-year-olds, Kilcheran—Poltava nliy and the Stepniak— Tempest colt, sprinting. The nrst-uained, which is a leggy, raki'ug-looking filly, showed to most advantage, and she promises to have a fair turn of speed. D. Roberts has been keeping his four three-year-olds, aiumura, Perm, Puaka, and iSusa, busy during the week. The quartet I are looking well, and have furnished up nicely during the winter months, especially Mumura, which has thickened out sp.eudidly. This son of St. Ambrose—Fiame showed a lot of waywardness on the tracks last season, and he was not seriously persevered with, it being his owners intention to have him , emasculated in the- autumn. However, the operation could not be performed, so he remains an entire, and his trainer (Roberts) is so satislied with the improvement that the colt has made that he is better pleased the operation did not take place. Mumura should develop into a decidedly useful colt. The disqualification for six months imposed on (i. J, Pine by the Dunedin Jockey •Ciub at Its Autumn Meeting expired during the week, and Pine took his ttrst opportunity of renewing his acquaintance with the pigskin. His services for work-riding have been eagerly sought after. The opinion has been freely and emphatically expressed by local sportsmen who witnessed tne racts in which Pine was alleged to have caused the interference that he was unjustly accused of the offence, and other riders in the race are credited with making a similar , statement: Sajpieuce has rejoined F. Holmes , aitlve brigade, and is looking well after his respite. The disappointing Royal Lucia is the latest addition to that- mentor's division. . Lady Disdain and Naiates are booked to visit Martian this season. Stepdancer, which has not yet foaled to the English-bred sire, is to visit Mmagain. Baringdale, the colt that Mr. W. T. Haziest paid a big price fox, ds reported to be coming on satisfactorily under training in the South. He is already sprinting as part of his ordinary work. Mr. Middleton Melrose is said to have refused a tempting offer for his unlucky Merriwee mare Truganini. Lord Kelvin, a stable companion of Truganlni, is said to have grown into a nice colt. A Palmerston North correspondent states that the Cup candidates John and Roosevelt are being given strong work. The former is very forward, but Roosevelt is on the big side. Nero, which was very lame after the Grand National Meeting, anfl was left in R. Derrett's care, had recovered sufficiently to be shipped home last Thursday. Bonny Glen, which struck himself recenUy, and had to be eased In his work, is all right again. It is understood that the son of Stepniak—Crest will be given a few mares this season, among them being Gipsy Maid, the dam of Martine. Fasnaiyle, which has Deen spelled on account of a burst foot, has rejoined Thompson's active brigade at KiccaTtofl.

ENGLISH RACING. c DEAD-HEAT FOR £10,000. Says my London correspondent: — The race for the Eclipse Stakes — the only race worth £10,000 now run for In the Old Country — at Sandown Park, resulted in a dead-heat between Mr Fairies Lemberg, the winner of the Derby, and Lord Rosebory's Two Thousand Guineas victor, Neil Gow. So the nmch-discussed question as to which of these two "horses of the year" j le the best, remains undecided. ■

Few racegoers can remember anything so exciting as this year's rivalry- between' these three-year-olds. They met as" two-year-olds, and Heil Gow beat Lemberg 'at Doacaster, but Lemberg proved, himself so great in other races, that throughout the winter he was' a firm favourite t(Jr the Derby, 'i'hey met in the Two Thousand Guineas, in April, when Neil Gow beat Mr Fairies crack by a head. " Every one then ....looked forward to a thrilling race for the Derby. The entire racing world was divided into t>vo camps. One party swore by Lord Kosebery's colt and the other by Mr Fairies. Unfortunately, a few days before the great Epsom race, Neil Gow threw out a curb, and though he took part in the Derby, and was confidently supported by his adherents, he was never in the race, so far as winning prospects were concerned. Thereafter, however, tbe Lembergera boasted of the superiority of their favourite to Neil Gow, and in" spite of Lemberg's failure in the Grand Prix de Paris, they would not hear of' his being beaten at Sandpwn by anything, least of all by Neil Gow. Onthe other band, the admirers of lord Rosebery's colt and "the stable," were confident that Neil Gow would turn the tables on the Derby winner, and backed their fancy heavily. There were v' x horses in the race — a miserable field with such a prize at stake — but there was practically no money for anything, save Lemberg and his old rival. The race produced one of the. most sensational finishes seen for some time. Both Neil Gow and Lemberg were troublesome at the post, but the start was excellent. Lem« berg had the lead entering the straight. On his left was Plaeidus, with Neil Gow at the latter's heels. Half-way up the saraißht. Maher sent Neil Gow up between the pair, and at the distance nearly drew level with Lemberg. Dillon cast a glance at his rival, aud then began «t determined fight between the favourites. Both Jockeys used their whips freely, and CO yards from home Neil Gow hnd drawn up. Tooth and nail they fought out the issus, and though Lemberg got his head in front again, Maher managed to close up in the last stride and make a deadheat of It There was vigorous cheering all round when the decision was given, and, as wns expected, the states were divided. Lord, Roseberv and Jlr Fairie share £10,000, less £115, which Mr TVigan receives as the owner of Placidus, ..who finished third. Lemberg has won £13,840 in stakes, and Neil- Gow £11,035.
