RIDING IN GOOD FORM
j S. GREEN'S THREE WINNERS The Waikato lightweight horseman, S. Green, who is attached to J. L. Muir's stable at Te Rapa, was the most successful rider at the Wellington meeting where he won three races, the Te Aro and Kia Ora Handicaps on Ganges and the Woburn Handicap on Mr. W.-" S. Goosman's Grey Salute. The latter won very narrowly from Leighon's Glory, and his victory was due in no small measure to Green's vigorous riding. Thij, was Grey Salute's first will since March 25 of last year, when he took the First Trial Handicap at the Bay of Plenty meeting at Paeroa. The only other jockey to ride more than one winner was A. Midwood, who was seen to advantage on Abdicate in the Vittoria Hack Hurdles and Master Meruit in the Wellington Steeplechase. Midwood might have done even better only for being involved in a motor accident which prevented him riding on the final day. Leading horseman W. J. . Broughton had one winner, Royal Heir in the Stewards' Handicap, and others to succeed were K. Thomson (Tenorinan). W. Elisor (Brantome), J. Campbell (Rarnicourt), J. Chaplin (Shepherd's Mate), J. McParlane (Master Robin), P. Hain (Good Armour), W. Connor (Leybourne). W. J. Stevens (Kilmanagh), J. Williamson (Flying Tor), and R. B. Ireland (Peter Gregor).
