DOOMBEN SENSATION

STARTLING CUP INCIDENTS BRISBANE, July 22. Following his head defeat in the Doomben Newmarket the previous Saturday, Repshot yesterday won the Doomben Cup after a series of incidents which made the race one of the most sensational ever held in Brisbane. The pre-post favourite, Brumond, was nearly thrown over the rails at the mile post and received a gash on the offside flank. Brumond's jockey, D. Long, had his boot almost torn off and his toes severely lacerated. Before the race, the saddles of the jockeys were searched by the stewards for batteries. Two horses were injured in a float smash and were unable to start. Before the Cup was run C. Doyle, trainer of Brumond. told the stewards he had received warnings that an attempt would be made to prevent his horse from winning. Repshot, which started favourite, never looked like losing the race, and won with a lot in hand.
