C..1.C. STAKE MONEY On the opening day of the Grand National meeting the South Island contingent captured six of the nine events, a division being necessitated in the Cashmere Plate, in addition to taking seven seconds, four thirds, and four fourths. Those placings brought to them stake money aggregating £3525, but by reason of the North Island filling all four placiiigs in the rich Grand National Steeples the northerners were able to top the home contingent by a small margin. Visitors from this island had to be content with three firsts, two seconds, five thirds and three fourths, but with £2500 coming from the big 'chase the aggregate reached the good figure of £3785.
