Gloaming and Tbe Hawk carried un ihe running for the greater part of the distance, and It was mainly due to the pace they sol that an Australasian record was established, the mile being covered In 1.30 3-5. Tbe Hawk has been right at the top or his form during lite last row months, and if he is nt and well next Saturday as he lias been in Australia recently, be will take some heating, lie holds the Australasian record or 1.301 ftir ihe mile.

It must have boon very pleasing lo the Hon. I-:. W. Alison to see the success of .--aucy Sue in the (mc Thousand Guineas at \ewmurket last week. Saury Sue is by Swynrord. sire ~r llansovino, which won the Knglish Herbv last year, from Good and Gay. the dam or Tea Tray. Tea Tray Is by the well-known sire.

Three Australian-bred yearling.' have arrived at llawke's Bay. and Ihev are to b" kept there until It Is,time Tor 'them to be raced. Their Australian owner lias been more or less persuaded that the llawke's Hay climate and the grasses in thai district are greatly conducive to Ihe well
' ---ii'iL-siep. a ,,(l next season they are to bo,-.taken buck to Australia with ail eye to the rich lwo-vear-obl clas-ic-. Tlie trio consists ~r a llliv by Kilbronev— Aquila by Harrow-, a colt by Clu-vsolaus— Soi-nette by Ti-ossldy. and a gelding by Magpie—lialTodll On.'en. by I.inacre. Evidently ihe experiment lias been brought about by the success that has attended the yearlings sold in Australia by Mr. W. G. Stead—Poetaster, l.os tlntos. Horoscope and others. The owner appears to thl»k that I here is something In tbe climate and reeding or yrninirslors in the Dominion that makes them route to hand early. II will be most interestiiur to see bow the experiment gels on. ir It Is successful, llawke's Hay will become a very popular place with wealthy Australian owners. Discussing this question the Sydney "Sun" says: "\ithoiigh be settled in Svdni.'v because or the greater opportunities It offers, it Is not surprising mat trainer <;. Price uiinics that his native land. New Zealand. Is specially suited ror Ihe raising ~r thoroughbred horses. He is not alone in that belief, which he holds very strongly Price winie cot,lending thai, the natural grasses ol the country and the limestone in the soil have much to do with the excellence or the stock, thinks that tbe more rigorous climate has a great deal to do with making the horses hardy. Without labouring Ills argument. Price points out that many Australian-bred horses have been taken to nn- Dominion, aud have raced siieces.sruily over longer distances man stock by the same sires run In the Con, monwealth. with the object or testing rrice s ideas the gentleman who as Mr c ~n, V," race " Col "»eol Purchased re°yjL l --'„T • v,, « l '"ng s by an-ysolaus.
