SEVERAL SIHES REPRESENTED Te Rapa stables will be freely represented in juvenile racing this season, and quite a number of youngsters are already moving along freely in their early education. Several sires are represented, and the contingent as a whole looks decidedly promising. Mrs. E. M. Sloane. a very successful trainer, one with the happy knack of placing her horses to advantage, has an attractive trio in work, comprising Swift Robin, a well set up bay colt by Robin Good fellow from Twinkle Twinkle, a three-quarter sister to Star Stranger. He is being prepared for Mrs. Ann l'owell, a well-known Auckland sportswoman, who is also represented by a brown colt by Foxbridge from the Catmint mare Speed Mint, for which she paid 1025 guineas at. the last National Sales at Trentham. This colt is a full brother to Shining Light, winner 6f eleven races, including the A.J.C. Sydney Handicap, and £K(>24 in stakes. The other juvenile is an Orelio filly out of a Baffles mare, which will carry the colours of Mrs. L. Pearce, of Auckland.

O. Mclnallv is preparing Fairy Story, a chestnut filly by Te Hero from Love Story, for Mr. .T. Quinn, of Whangarei, who recently returned from service overseas. The "youngster lias furnished weil and should come to hand early.

J. L. Muir's sole representative among the juvenile ranks is Cornel, a bay colt by Bulandshar from Mitt Muzzle, by Law Maker, the sire of the Australian J.C. winner. Laureate, Lawrence (V.A.T.C. Guineas) and Counsel, winner of tlie 1914 Caulfield Cup. Cornel was purchased at the last sales by Muir, acting on behalf of Mr. W. S. Goosman, M.P., for DOO guineas. A Winder's Quartet The star of the A. Winder juvenile quartet is the record-priced Foxbridge— Ann Acre colt, Bar One, an upstanding individual which may take time to develop. Attractively bred, he is a brother to the well-performed Bridge Acre and Al-Sirat. and special interest will attach to his progress. The other youngsters are a chestnut gelding by Orelio out of Hunter's Rose, owned by Mr. H. Overton, of Auckland. Mr. W. Goosman's Nizami— Trethella filly, and a half-brother to Ramicourt, by Bulandshar out of High Art, acquired at the sales by the Papakura sportsman, Mr. W. Rabbidge, for 1000 guineas.

D. Cotton is handling a Foxbridge— Merry Thought, gelding for Mr. N. H. Hooker, a chestnut colt by Plato from Armadilla (the same family as Humbug and Epitaph) for Mr. G. Hill, of Stratford, a bay filly by Orelio from Cowl, which will carry the livery of Messrs. Savage and Son, Paeroa, and a bay filly by Mediaeval Knight from Miss Kincardine. which is being prepared for Mr. A. W. Beasley, of Hauraki Plains.

A. McGregor is preparing a two-year-old filly by Orelio out of Meadow Hose, a full sister to that consistent sprinter Farland, a useful money-spinner for the stable a few seasons ago. He will sport the colours of Mr. J. C. Pollock.
