ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. J.P., Karaka Street,. Newton. would take too much valuable time to make the necessary research. PARAPAItA ( Raetlhi). —Soult—Dreamland. " Thrace figures as an entrant for* the Hawke's Bay Hurdles. Fabriquettc was given a solid five furlongs on the same morning. Harold Dillon has sired 57 winners this season, and Wildwood Junior 30*. The Wellington Racing Club's new totehouse is expected to he ready for the i coming meeting at Trentham. An unnamed six-year-old brother to Auilax is doing well under Stewart WaddeU at Greeumcadows. The Nut, sire of Spanner, Talami, and Co., is to be located on the Hunter River, N.S.W., next season. i Master Lupin has been erroneously reI ferred to as a chestnut in a Wellington ! paper. Demonstrate, who is, as the name suggests, a sou of Demosthenes, is from a mare called Tc Awahou Notability is a fancied candidate for the Ladies' Bracelet to be run at Claudclands on July 5. He has top weight, 12.0. Dr. Grant is a regular attendant nt Ellerslie. and is pure to be seen in the saddle at the Waikato Hunt Meeting.

Ohorcre is the name by which the halfsister to Wonder, in J. McLaughlin's stable, at Trentham, is to tie known when she races.

Thrace, who is amongst the horses nominated for the Hawke's Bay J.C. Meeting, continues to progress satisfactorily in his work.

The Absurd Lady Etta colt and Absurd Condaniine filly, coming two-year-olds, sprinted a couple of furlongs nicely on Thursday morning.

The Marton Jockey Club, which some time ago decided on erecting 40 boxes on newly-acquired property, has now let the contract for the same.

M. Connell, the well known Australian jockey, won his thousandth race on Nautch Girl, a two-year-old, at Moorelield on June 3, and rode the winner of the Carlton Mile the same afternoon. thus starting off on his second thousand well.

George, a coming ten-year-old, in J. H. Prosscr's stahle, raced at Otaki, after a year off the scene, and hopes are entertained that he will win another race or two.

Master Strowan on Monday met with an accident while schooling at Fox ton, and, as he was in rather a had way next day. it is feared that he will not foe able to race at the Trentham meeting next month.

[ The Durban (South Africa* Turf Cluo gave £52,856 in -stakes last year, equal to the gross amount received from the totalisator in 27 days. The tax on the bookmakers during the same period was _16,16_.

Ohlnewairua was not ridden in the race she won at Napier i'ark by Gray, but she got there Just the same with P. Brady up, and beat Gray's mount, Tiranga, who came with a good finishing run and arrived just too late. Ohinewairua paid a good price.

Multive and Master Webster were the only two first favourites to win at Napier Park yesterday, and their wins were over the obstacles. The last-named carried top weight. He is a good medium-sized geegee, and his long spell off did him good.

The 'chaser Loch Fyne is dead. He came by his end at Te Aroha. where he was pensioned off by Mr. T. O'Connor, for whom he won a lot of races over fences. He was bred l>y the late Mr. Donald MuKinnon.

There was little hunting in Victoria during the war period, but the old-estab-lished Melbourne Hunt Club is again in going order, and Mr T. A. Creswick, a wellknown horse owner and breeder, has been elected master.

.1. 11. Prosser, the Porlrua trainer, has half-a-dozen coming two-yea in hand, in addition to about the same number of older horses and three three-year-olds. Five of the two-year-olds are by Bezonian and one by Demosthenes.

The Sunny Lake—Oranee Pippin colt foal purchased by Mr. W. Foss at the Elders!ie Stud sale, and for some time past located at Green -Lane, claims relationship to Grand Parade, winner of the Derby, whose grandam is a sister to Orange rippin.

•Stan Reid is said to have been schooling Sr.nl) at Canlfield, and it is understood that he will be a runner for the V.R.C. National Hurdle Race on July 5. Beltane, the exAucklander, by Elysian from Lady Hester, has been ridden by Reid in some of his essays in private, and he, too, is engaged in the same race.

During the present racing reason the Tasmanian Racing Club has held seven days' racing, and put through the totalisator £59.315 10/. Trotting races have accounted for £11,054 10/. and gallops for £48.201 5/. These figures show an increase of _<"501 10/ over those for a similar number of meetings last .season.

"Looker-on," referring to Mr. G. D. Greenwood's team at work at R'.ccarton last week, Haiti: —"All three moved well, but Karo did not look as if she is going to carry the condition that it has taken her trainer some months to build up. Gloaming shows no lameness, but the fall he hadat Trentham has left the Welkin gelding with an enlarged or displaced muscle on his near hindqnarter.''

J. N. McGregor, the one-time New Zealand cross-country rider, was in hospital quarters after the recent Ballarat meeting, owing to a fall in the Brush Steeplechase there. No horseman has had so many bad fulls as McGregor, so far as we know. It Is surety about time he was prevailed upon to give the game up. If ever a horseman deserved a pension he does. A gamer rider never crossed a horse.

The London "Sportsman" mentions that the -Belgian Steeplechase Society is endeavouring to encourage the Importation of foreign lilies and mares. Special conditions were to be offered in races, for which one of the qualifications would be that they should remain in the country, to be entered in the Belgian Stud Book, and not to be sent out of Belgium, save with the consent of the and for the express purpose of taking part in some race for which they might have become qualified.

Pilot has compiled the following list ' showing amounts of £1.000 and over won at ! Randwick this season:—Poltrel, £3.711; , Gloaming, £5.411 'Kenuaquahair. £3.353; | Inn 'Or, £4.139; Millieme. £4.094; Arch Marella, £3.303: Rebus. £2.980: Bigaroon. ! £2.412; Hem. £2,309 5/; -Pinmark, £2.373 ! 10/: GTeenstead, £1.952: Cetigne. ■ £1.0*9; j Wolaroi. £1.3-4 a/; Bundella. £1.450; Sue. £1.441: Alms.iriver. £1.422: Aries, £1.339: I Estland. £1.336: Braille. £1.225: The Fortune Hunter. £1.190: Balaranz, £1,194: | Wedding Day. £1,185: Publican. £ 1.0GB; 1 ■Sweet Rosaleen. £1.037 5/; Carbern, i £1,009; Night Watch, £1,000. j The Poverty -Bay meetings were remark- . able for the successes of horses got by imported Gazeley. who. as a sire, has been ■ a decided success there. When we come to think of the few advantages horses get in some parts of the Dominion it is re- ! -markab-le how the average standard is maintained. Many good horses never really meet mates their own class, and yet breeders expect to get something better than they do. and, moreover, expect mares I that were not of any account to speak of as youngsters to breed something to come 1 oat and *;iu. earls' for them. _

__. Bracken's fees for winning Tides at the recent Randwick meeting came to over £400. G. Henderson had Waimai on the course at Ellerslie on Thursday, and rode him work of a useful kind. Swastika was schooled by Fred Speakman, who has just got ont of khaki and resumed his former occupation, on Thursday morning. ■Hessian and Scottish Knight -were given a rough-up over five furlongs on the sand on Thursday, and both seem well for the coming Waikato Hunt 'Meeting. J. Williamson is not allowing Troublesome, No Surrender, and Garry Owen to be idle. They are meant for early business elsewhere. Harold Dillon's progeny ror this season have won £11,342. Four Chimes, with £4939, and Wildwood Junior come next with £4624. The highly-bred Empire, which has not raced up to his breeding on the tracks, is now being used as a tradesman's hack in Te Aroha. Q. . The Advance filly Forward Lady, from the Stepniak mare Oka, sister to Orloff, is a visitor to the tracks, and is a nicelyturned young lady. Canowindra, who is a gelding two-year-old of good size, is quite dwarfed by the big and angular Tesso. They worked out a sound mile on Thursday on the sand. Pcnona, Independence. Seville, Lilansannor, Ulneamaru. Meltchlkofr. Multiplane, La Blanche, Koura, and 'Mistress Biddy were some that were worked usefully at Ellerslie on Thursday morning. There were only four acceptors for the Nottingham Handicap, worth 400sovs and "The Baron," in "Lloyd's Sunday News," said that sum was probably above the value of any one of them, in referring, to the fact. Albert Hill is making good progress with the work of Improving the course proper near the old mile post at Ellerslie. About ten men and a team of horses have been kept on the job since it was fairly started, and the weather has favoured operations. There appears to have been quite an epidemic of burglaries of late In different parts of New Zealand. The one at Alexandra Park, Epsom, occurred during the absence of Mr. Jas. Mitchell, the Auckland Trotting Club's caretaker, who was away I for a few days. I .lack Delaval, winner of pony races first, 1 and later of the A.11.C-' Easter Handicap I and other good races, broke bis leg the other day while galloping about his owner's farm at Pukekohe, where he had been sent to end his days in retirement. He was a good friend to his breeder-owner. Fred Stenuing, who had pensioned him off. The King's -colours were carried more than once this season before the colt Viceroy carried them successfully in the Stewards j Handicap. Soap Bubble in March was the \ first I have seen mention of, and then on , April 12 came Tesaro, in the Greenham Handicap at Newbury. A writer iv the "Sunday Pictorial" said it was pleasing to see the son of Bayardo and Persepolis there, as it aroused memories of the late King Edward and Miuoru. i There will he a very strong vote cast for j the starting of all trotting races by the yards system when the delegates to the New Zealand Trotting Conference meet. The I wonder i_ that it has been so slow in | coming. Its fairness to all concerned is , one of its strongest recommendations, hut i there are so many reasons why it should he established that they outweigh all others. Trainers must educate their horses Ito start from a stand. Some day we shall j have races for free-legged pacers, and I fewer races for horses almost hidden with I straps or trappings of one kind and another as is the case at every meeting one attends nowadays.

Mr. T. n. Lowry has been selecting names for some of his young horses. It was mentioned in our last Issue that the coming two-year-old full-sister to Desert Gold was to be known as Acacia. It appears that there is a coming three-year-old fullsister also, and she is to be known as d'Oro. Evidently this one did not showearly promise like Acacia. Island is the name .elected for the Finland All's Well full-brother to Grand Duchy, who is at last beginning to win a little in the South Island. % There ls a place on tbe coast in Hawke's Bay known as Blackhead, and All Black s son from liobrikoflTs dam (Gossip) has been so called. A colt by Merry Moment from Bobrlkoff's full-sister En Parole is to be known as Right and Left, and the half-sister to Ohiwia. by the Australianbred sire Wolawa. will he known as Canyon Ohiwia is by Elysian from Walrakau, who was bred by Mr. James McNlcol at Te Ardha. War Cry is the name sought for a filly by Finland from War Talk.

At the coming conference of N Z Trotting Clubs to be held in Wellington Mr. C. F. Mackay, chairman of the Wanganui Trotling Club, will propose: (1) That the Government he asked to reinstate the double totalisator; (2) that in the opinion of this conference the present systems of conducting inquiries and appeals is unsatisfactory ; that in the opinion of this conference such Inquiries and appeals should be open to the Press, except when there are the strongest reasons to the contrary; that the Government be asked to introduce legislation to remedy the existing defects by giving (a) adequate protection to witnesses and others attending such inquiries and appeals, and (b) adequate powers to those conducting such inquiries and appeals that all available evidence is forthcoming. Mr. Mackay should have a good deal of support. He is sure of it from a number of clubs who already admit the Press representatives to their inquiries.

At Ellerslie this morning All Talk, with Erk-kson up, jumped the pony hurdles nicely. The same rider put Munster over several of the bis ones. La -Blanche went a circuit with Keepa up. A number of horses were intended to be schooled, but heavy rain falling the steeplechase course was closed by the caretaker, (Mr. Hill. Comedy Prince carried Lady Energy along over a sand half-mile in brilliant style. A. J. MoFlynn was on Blue and Black, and gave Forward Lady a testing over a few furlongs. Hineamaru and Canzonet galloped five furlongs fast. Troublesome worked out two sonnd circuits of the sand. Swastika ran a solid sand round. Penella and Hessian covered four furlongs, keeping together. Independence alone covered the same ground a little faster. Glucian sprinted haif-a-mile very well. Middle Mark, Llansannor .Tabasco, Bridgie, and Monocrat each worked Usefully. Salvatesa did barrier exercise, and then galloped six furlongs fast, and Fabriquette ran about the same distance, brushing home well.

The death of Mr E. Lyons, who will best lie remembered by his old friends as | "Manny" Lyons, is reported from Melbourne. The veteran was a prominent j owner, and, until the totalisator became | established, a bookmaker in New Zealand. IHe owned First Dord. and was interested, ! with the late FI. Goodman, in Somneil, j who was a contempora,-y of Carbine at two years old, and a pretty good one. Always spick and span, the writer remembers, some years after Mr Lyons had retired, seeing I i. him standing at the ring side with a ! button-hole in his coat, while the late Mr ;F. Pyne. of Cbristchurrh, was trying to • extract bids from a non-buying crowd for a ! useful-looking colt. Mr Pyne knocked the I colt down at 200 guineas. naming Mr j "Manny" Lyons as the buyer, whereupon I that sportsman disclaimed having bid at I all. "I'm sorry," replied Mr Pyne, "at 'the precise moment you looked quite 200 guineas." Manny Lyons was a real good I sort, as many Southern racing folks can 1 recall. He had resided in Australia for ! over a decade.

Racing aad trotting clubs are seeking permits hitherto withheld from them, and new clubs are being formed. "Glencoe," in the "Dominion," has the following on the subject:—"ln view of the fact that new racing and trotting clubs are being formed in many parts of the Dominion, it will be interesting to note how the racing authorities -view the requests of the new clubs for totalisator permits. Will the new clubs be turned down, or -will permits that are already allocated be given them or will Parliament be approached and asked to sanction more race days? When spoken to on the question recently some members shook their heads as if to indicate that Parliament as at present constituted cannot be expected to do anything, at least not this year. No doubt the president of the Conference -will touch on the matter In his address to members at the annual meeting next month. Many people think that a private bill should be prepared and the Conference should insist on it beindebated this coming session, so that a reliable idea could he obtained as to how the legislator. viej_ the matter.'*

Waimai is likely to appear next at Trentham, all going well with him In the In- : terval. Some' of the sporting and other clubs In ! London are in great difficulties with their , wine or, rather, without it. There is an • appalling shortage, and the cry goes up: "Let the Hun begin by paying his bill in good Rhenish." (At the June meeting of the Menangle Park Racing Club, N.S.W., the large sum of £327 15/ was put through the totalisator. '■ There were seven races, but for one there was a walkover.. In the other races the fields were good. The tote docs not take at Menangle apparently. The Newbury Cup, won by Lord Durham's Callander, which beat Rivershore and Sir Berkleythe first-named by a head only— . was worth 1250sovs. One English writer refers to the last-named as "the big awkward Sir Berkley." We have the fact kept before us that the late Fred Archer twice rode six winners in : one day, and George Fordham equalled that performance once under Jockey Club Rules , in England. Joe Conquest won six races , and rode one second and once unplaced at , Rotorua in February, 1317. One of the horses won two of the six races. That afternoon's performance has not been equalled at a totalisator meeting in New Zealand so far , as we can remember. The late Albert c Whittaker nearly won the programme at a no tote meeting at Huntly, and quite a num- , ber of cases of the kind have been known in different parts of New Zealand at coun- i try meetings. The much-travelled L. H. Hewitt has probably the best record for metropolitan meetings that any horseman in i New Zealand can show, and certainly the best as regards the number and importance and value of the stakes. He had eight winning rides at Randwick at the Spring Meeting of 1.03, aud at the Spring Meeting of the Canterbury Jockey Club of 1904 won 14 : races, was beaten a neck in one race, was third in -another, and rode six times unplaced, thus having 22 mounts during the meeting. There were six races, including four hurdle races, that he could not ride in, one being for gentlemen riders and another for apprentices, so that he put up a great record to win fourteen times. His winning mounts were: Golden Knight, Maiden Plate; Grand Rapids, New Zealand Cup ; Munjeet, Welcome Stakes ; Shorts, King's Guest; Epsom Welter, Quarryman; Derby, Nightfall; Spring Nursery, Delaware; Canterbury Cup, Martian ; Avon .Welter, Golden Vein : Oaks, Nightfall ; Electric Plate, Machine Gun ; Cressy Welter, Golden Vein ; Members Handicap, Savoury; Randolph Handicap, Ma-chine Gun, the last-named carrying 11.5, winning by a neck, and covering the five furlongs in 08s, a record which stands, and is likely to do, for some time. NOTES ON ENGLISH RACING. Since about the year 1840 Ascot Heath : has been favoured by Hoyal patronage. The cable Informing us of the revival of pre-war splendour there would not occasion any surprise to those who follow English racing at all closely. It is there that the Ascot Cup is run for and the Ascot Stakes, the firstnamed a great historic event, while , the Royal Hunt Cup, which was run on Thursday, is next only in importance as handicap I races go to the Cambridgeshire Handicap, and has been established since soon after the late Queen Victoria and her consort, the Prince Albert, first lent their gracious pat- / ronage. The first event was in 1843, so the race is 70 years old. It has almost Invariably been won by pretty good horses, and has brought together large fields. One horse ■ that can be specially mentioned in connecI tion with the race, because his name—and Ihe won in IS69—appears in the pedigrees of a number of good horses who found their way to New Zealand, Soult being the most conspicuous. The race is 74 yards short of a mile, but that does not make It a sprint event by any means. Though it takes speedy horses to win it, stamina to run the distance from end to end is needed. THE ROYAL HUNT CUP. The win of Irish Elegance on Thursday must be regarded as nothing short of a great performance. He carried the topweight (9.11), and that fact was considered specially worth cabling, for the reason that it would enable racing men on this side of the world to fully appreciate it. Nine-eleven is a big weight for this particular race, even for a four-year-old, who was good at I three years old. . Long Set won with 101b less in 1913. and we go back to 1881, when that extraordinary horse Peter, a five-year-old, carried 9.3, and, after stopping to kick, with F. Archer up, then came and won. In 1849 a six-year-old named Colllngwood won with 9.7, and they were the only instances of over 9.0 being carried successfully. The performance of Irish Elegance therefore stands out as a record one from a weight-carrying point of view, but it was that of a high-class horse beyond any doubt. By Sir Archibald, sire of Archiestown, imported last year by the racing clubs of the Waikato. there Is something of especial Interest in this horse's performances which are particularly good. He beat a big field of 25 others, and the pair that followed him homeArion. a recent winner, and Dansellon both excellent performers, the lastnamed especially last season. This horse's breeding we are also interested in, as he is by Chaucer, a leading sire In England, and sire of Arrowsmith, who is expected to reach Auckland next weeß. and is to be raced first and then to go to the stud in New Zealand. ASCOT GOLD CUP. Following the success of Irish Elegance In the Royal Hunt Cup came the result of the Ascot Gold Cnp. which By Jingo, twice winner pt the Manchester Cup and the ninner-np in that race two years ago, won, this being his most important success to date, though there is reason to believe that he carried 9.2 to victory in his last essay. By Jingo's performances were referred to at the time, and need not be repeated. Air Raid, who finished second, was got by that great stayer, Wlllonyx, winner of the Chester Cnp, Ascot Gold Cup and Cesarewich Stakes, and last year won the Somerham Plate, Payne Stakes. Marston Plate, walked [ over for the Berkshire Stakes (one mile | seven furlongs), and won the Cesarewitch ' Stakes (two and a-qnarter mile), beating a ' big field. He finished up by running fourth .in the Limekiln Stakes over a mile and aquarter to Dansellon. Polyscope and Callandar being second and third. He led for part of the Journey in the Derby. Some idea of his class can be gathered from the ; fact that Air Raid recently changed hands for 4000gns. Roamer, who was third In the race, is n three-year-old by Prediclateur X as Two Sticks, and he ran twice unplaced and won the Linton Plate last year in a field ', of twelve. The success of the King's colt Viceroy, by The Tetrarch from Sweet Vernal, following . his Stewards' Stakes win at Epsom, is pleasing reading to all good sportsmen, and i will be especially so to Mr. Hazlett. a South- : land breeder and sportsman, who purchased , at the dispersal sale of Mr. J. B. Iteld at lOamaru some close relatives to that colt.

The Gold Cup at Ascot has been won by some of the greatest horses the Turf has ever known. The course is circular, sixty yards short of two miles, with rises anil falls in the course and an uphill finish, a severe test, and more often than not the ground is very hard, and good horses have often broken down racing on it. The value of the prizes at Ascot are a great attraction for the owners of the cracks, and they are always good. The distance of the Ascot Cup extends to two miles and a-half. The race on Thursday won by By Jingo by three parts of a length was Its fiftieth anniversary, but during the war period. 1915 to 191 S. there was no race. Only two aged horses have won it. and they were Bachelor's Button, in 1906 (and he also won the Manchester Cup) and the Australian-bred Merman, in 1900. Only one six-year-old succeeded, and that was the French horse Mortiemer. in 1871. the sire of Apremont, who was imported by the Canterbury Middle Park Stud Company. The five-year-olds to win were Doncaster, Apology. Isonomy. Tristram Bird of Freedom, La Fleche, Isinglass. Elf 11.. Throwaway. Zinfandel. The White Knight. Prince Palatine, Allepo and the latest winner (Irish Elegance,. Prince Palatine. The White Knight and Isonomy being winners also at four years, at which age the other winners were Henry, Cremorne. Boiard, Petrarch. Verneuil. Robert the Devil. Foxhall. St- Gatien. ! Althorp, Timothy. Trayles, Gold, Morion- | Buccaneer. Persimmon. Cyllene (sire of Hymettusl. Santoi. William the Third (sire ! of Cynic). Maximum 11., Bayardo and Willonvxand what a grand lot of four-year-j olds they were. Then there were the three-vear-olds. Sabiuus. St. Simon. 'Ma rcion. Love ; Wisely and Bomb.i. St. Simon standing out 'as the greatest sire of the last third of a century. and to which the colonies are so much "indebted for racing material. In ; j Soult New Zealand got a sire by him of great vitality, and we are all more or less keenly interested in seeing how the blood comes out in succeeding generation-. The foregoing list shows what stout-blooded horse, have won the longdistance race, and it does not impose a heavy strain on the memories of students of breeding to recall what an immense service some of the horses named have done and are doing for the j ; colonies. J

Lord 'Basil, who was placed In the Newmarket Stakes In England last month, Is a half-brother, " 'by Bayardo, to imported Magpie, one of the best horses in Australia at weight-foir-age, whose dam. Popinjay, was got by St Frusquin from that good mare Chelandry from Illnminata. .T. Bryce, with 25, and A. Fleming with 21. winners, are the leading trotting and racing horsemen in the Dominion for the season. E. McDermott and A. Pringle follow with 16 and 15 respectively. J. Bryce has trained 31 winners and A. Fleming 17_. WAIRARAiPA NOTES. (By Telegrapn— tc "Stir.") MASTERTON, this day. The Masterton Racing Club is making application for the day It was deprived of as the result of the Racing Commission's report some years ago. Hydros is 'being put to the jumping game, and the H-ymettus gelding Is shaping very well over the sticks. He will make his first appearance as a hurdler at the Hawke's Bay meeting. The steeplechaser Negambo has been purchased in Australia by 'Mr. W. R. Kemball, of Masterton. The price paid is Bald to be 500 guineas. The Masterton -Racing Club has decided to remove one of the grandstands at the Opoki racecourse some distance in a northerly direction, and also to make long overdue Improvements to the totalisator house. Kilrush has been turned out until the spring. The Kilbroney gelding won £650 In stakes during the season for Mr. A. McAulay. of Tauherenikau, who owns and trains him. -thrdee is improving over the hurdles since he ran at Wanganui. He will be given another run at the Hawke's Bay Meeting this month, and with ordinary luck should get a place at least. ■■-, Torchy is doing capital work over the steeplechase course at Opaki, and should be in good trim for the Hastings meeting. Merrie Poto appears to be doing better work on the track just now than he has done for some time. The Maniapoto gelding, however, will require to show much improved form still before he can hope to land a-stake at the Trentham Meeting, where he will compete. Tutlccrn, which is now In charge of J. Gravestock, is being given a special preparation for Hastings, and it is freely whispered that he is capable of capturing a stake. NAPIER PARK MEETING. OPENING DAY'S RACING. NAPIER, Friday.
