The grey horse Grey Salute, which scored a belated win in the Woburn Handicap on the opening day of the Wellington meeting, and finished third to Leybourne and Royal Duce in the Seatoun Handicap on Saturday last, is to be tried as a hurdler. He is a solidly-built customer by Theio from Queen's Salute, and is owned by Mr. W. S. Goosman. His efforts on the fiat have been distinguished by consistency, with more than the ordinary amount of courage, and his trainer, J. L. MUir, of Te Rapa, formerly a very successful rider over hurdles and big country, is just the man to develop him in his new sphere of activity. Another runner at Wellington whose attention is to be directed to hurdle racing is Ring Scarf, a five-year-old son of Ringmaster, and Scarf Dance. He was purchased on 'Friday last by Mr. C. Ferguson, a southern sportsman, for £200, and the following day finished second to Ganges in the Kia Ora Handicap.
