BRED TO STAY

FORM OF FLYING TOR (Special) PALMERSTON N., Tuesday. Flying Tor concluded his racing for the season with a win in the Parliamentary Handicap which was so impressive that his connections have decided that he is not really a miler. As the result he is not to be taken to Riccarton for the Winter Cup, and will now be given a short let up before beginning a preparation for the spring handicaps. Flying Tor, which has been showing brilliant speed in the middle of his races, takes too long to find his feet for select mile company, but at Awapuni, and again at Trentham last Saturday, he ran on generously under pressure, and a race like the Mitchelson Cup might not be beyond his compass.

It is interesting to note that the stock of Leighon were not tried beyond a mile prior to the Manawatu winter meeting, when both Flying Tor and Leigh Hark won over ten furlongs, but Flying Tor traces back to Nightmare, ancestress of Wakeful, Noctuiform, Bon Reve, Talking and other fine stayers.
