TRAINING AT HAWEItA Special to Star. HAWERA, Tuesday. There was a big improvement In weather conditions on the local track at the week-end, and a lot of useful work was performed by Hunt Club candidates, although there was little galloping. The sand track was mainly used.
El Tiger, Golden Acre, Golden Ash and Vermette were the early workers, the last-named sprinting the last two furlongs of his work in 2GJs. Vermelte is working as well as ever and Golden Ash and Golden Acre are in excellent order to be speeded up for early engagements.
A capital working gallop over a mile was accomplished by the hunters Barras (Dombroski) and John Playfair (Potroz), the pair running their last live furlongs in 1.12 and finishing up strongly over the last three in -12s.
Corday (Holland) went attractively over half a mile in 5215, the last three furlongs in 395. The three-year-olds Paper Bill (French , ) and Peter Theio (Moore, sen.) had their first fast work, sprinting a couple of furlongs in 25 4-ss. Both youngsters shaped pleasingly. Ti Tahi (Moore) did a couple of rounds of solid pace work, finishing his last two furlongs in 28s. Abo Star and Lumond did pace work.
Black Plato made his reappearance on the tracks this morning, looking much refreshed by his short let-up. Looking more solid than when racing, Drambuie is getting through her steady pace work satisfactorily.
