JOCKEY'S WINNING WAY
i j (Rec. 9.30 a.m.) SYDNEY, this day. I The jockey Darby Munro rode the winners of the three principal races at the Warwick Farm meeting at Raudwkk yesterday. They were the Derby colt Henchman, who won the Three-Year-Old Handicap, the Epsom candidate Session, who I was successful an the Flying Handicap, and j the Metropolitan candidate Katanga, win- | ner of the Greenhilla Handicap. ■ SUCCESSFUL TRIPS Xew Zealand horses or horses -bred in j Xew Zealand have done well in the Epsom I Handicap in the last 11 years. In that I period winners have been Nightiiim-ch. j Antopay, Silver Ring, Synagogue, Gold I Rod and High Caste. In the last few I years successful Metropolitan runners were j Waikarc. Sir Regent, Royal Chief and I Beau Vite. Accepting the betting market ! as a guide, the visitors will again be heard 1 from in Sydney and Melbourne this year. i ENGLISH ST. LEGER WINNER 1 The English St. Leger winner Sun Castle was described as one of the best looking yearlings of 1939. When The Done-aster yearling sales were cancelled Lord Portal took a half share in him with his breeder, Lady Chesterfield. He had two races late in his first season, and, although he did not win, be was rated fourth in the Free Handicap, being awarded 9.2, compared with 9.7 to the top-weighf, Poise. Sun Castle was one of the favourites for the Derby in June, but he could finish only siSteenth in a field of 19. BACKING OF ALGERIAN Algerian, a poor performer in Xew Zealand, has been backed to win the EpsomMetropolitan double for approximately £12,000, although, as long odds were available, the outlay -was comparatively small, says a Sydney writer. Algerian, a five-year-old bay gelding, is by Beau Pere from Zarene. In Xew Zealand he has won four races, one at five furlongs and a half, two <at six furlongs and one at nine furlongs. The commissioner was acting for the owners who at the moment -would appear to be optimistic. The ffeldiriß, who has 7.5 and 7.2 in the Epsom and Metropolitan, has yet to race in Sydney.
