TOPICAL COMMENT

NOW OWNS JACK DALY

An Auckland sportsman, Mr. R. H. Kennedy, who races two useful horses in Indian Arrow and Belhall, lias a promising young trotter in Jack Daly. T.ne latter 'is by Worthy Belwin from Kewpie's Guy, the dam of Poi taclown and the promising Mourne Spring. Kewpie's Guy is by Blue Mountain King from Kewpie, the first nine of whose progeny all won races. TO RACE NEXT MONTH Aerial Scott, which created a big impression when he won the three-year-old trotting classic at Adclington earlier m the season, is being kept up to the collar by B. Jarden and present intentions are to take the U. Scott trotter to Addington again next month. The experience he gained this term is certain to prove very beneficial and many good judges will be astray if he does not develop into a good winner later on. RETIREMENT ANNOUNCED Two of the Dominion's best performers this season in Pacing Power and Sea Max are to be retired. Pacing Power was never a lucky pacer, but he won some of the best handicaps and finished third in the New Zealand Trotting Cup on two occasions. Sea Max came right into her own as a trotter .this term, but she has worked herself back to a particularly tight mark and as her opportunities are restricted her owner has retired her to the stud. LAWN DERBY'S RECORD In 1938 the Australian pacer Lawn Derby was sent against time over a mile and succeeded in becoming the first horse to break 2.0 in the Dominion by registering 1.59 2-5. Many have been the attempts in the interim, but Lawn Derby's record still stands. He was a truly great pacer, but a southern writer expresses an opinion that, specially trained. Van Derby would have covered a mile in record time. Van Derby and Lawn Derby measured strides in a special match at Epsom and the former won comfortably after coming from behind.
