PACER DOING WELL
GOOD PROSPECTS PREDICTED The South Island pacer, Indian Clipper, is reported to be training well for W. R. Butt, and capable of playing a big part in important handicap events at the spring meetings, states a southern writer. Last season he won four races, one foi' his breeder, T. Gleeson, and three under M. Holmes for his new owner, Mr. E. Laurenson, including the Easter Handicap and the Champion Pacing Free-for-All. On performances he was regarded as a future Cup winner, but early in the present season he became unreliable at the start, and was unplaced in his next six attempts. During the autumn he was transferred to W. R. Butt's stable, and in his only start for him Indian Clipper failed to leave the mark properly.
