GUINEAS HORSES WORK
GOOD EFFOKT IMPRESSES Special. WANGANUI, Tuesday. With the opening of the new racing season on this coast only three weeks off, track work is becoming increasingly interesting. A number of Wanganuitrained horses are to race at the Taranaki Hunt meeting on September 1, including Hulabaloo, Derryogue, Kilarney Boy, Red Chief, Good Effort and Stony Broke. The tracks were in good order this morning, although on the dead side after steady rain overnight. Hulabaloo was not asked to make time in a run over six furlongs, but he moved nicely and looks particularly well. However, he is a moody customer. Kilarney Boy sprinted three furlongs in 30s, hitting out freely. The Saleve gliding has built up nicely, and if he keeps right he should win a sprint race or two for Trainer G. Rayner, who also has Michael in his charge. The Guineas candidates Michael and Behave were associated in a working gallop over six furlongs. They were wide out, and going well within themselves to register 1.2-1, finishing together. Michael is improving with each gallop, and this son of Broieiort gives promise of proving useful. Behave is also going along well and may add to his winning record early in the spring. J.- Boyd, who trains Stony Broke and Good Effort, gave them a run over six furlongs, Which they left behind In 1.22, without being extended. Stony Broke looks better than ever, and a race should come his way early in the term. If appearances go for anything Good Effort is likely to play his part well among the three-year-olds. With a race on the first day at Wanganui, the son of Robin Goodfellow should have prospects in the Guineas. The two-year-old gelding by Gynerium— Lady Pym, in H. Benge's stable, has been named Mr. Pym. He had Court Crier as a companion in a sprint over two furlongs, which they cut out in 2(i l-ss, and doing it nicely. They are both to run In the Debutante Stakes at Wanganui, all going well.
ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS J.M. (Point Chevalier).—£2 2/6 and £ 1 4/6. INTERESTED (Parnell). —H. N. Wiggins won the Wellington Cup on Insurrection in 1922, at the age of 14.
