GALLOPS IN FOG
L. J. ELLIS TAKEN TO HOSPITAL
CHRISTCHURCH, this day
Conditions at Riccarton Mere much improved this morning. With the cessation of rain a good deal of the water which lay on the outside of the track in the vicinity of the training sheds disappeared, and with prospects of fine weather the course should provide good going for the racrng on Saturdav, though naturally it will be on the heavy side.
The trial grass track was open for work this morning, but a thick fog prevented any of the early gallops from being seen. The fog cleared later, but after that there was not much fast galloping, most of the horses being kept to strong pace work. t ,
Casilda beat High Ideal and Ladv Chips in the best half mile in 31 l-ss. Royal Duce and Arco taking 52 4-os. Ganges and Lord Dundonald did seven furlongs in 1.37, the last four in 565.
Comic Paper and Da Vinci were too good for Miss Myra over six furlongs in 1.21. Minority gave a safe display by himself. He is none the worse for his fall.
The Dude and Sandy Cape were mates, as were Advocate and Good Armour, all four jumping well.
.Full Pitch and Patu Ra were together with Greek Effort a long way back, his performance being disappointing. Patu Ra was lame wlien he walked in. L. J. Elli,s is on the sick list and he was taken to hospital last night.
