SPORTING NOTES.

[raox tub " wnouT passa,"] The 03.0. handieappiog committee will doubtless feel particularly ratified at the vety satisfactory number of horeei left in for the 0.J.0 Handicap. The only noteworthy animals whoso names, are absent are Mischief, Chancellor, Amulet, Idalium, Louie, d'Gr, Hilarious, Lore, Volunteer, Fleur do Ly«, Cheviot and Yatterina filly. With anything like lnok there ie every promino with the forty animali etill left in that the field will be the largest that ever started for a face in the oolony. Forerweight-for-age race the cop entries most we presume be deemed very s&tiifaotory, numbering as they do twenty-eight animals, divided among thirteen owner*. The nominations kit year only numbered nineteen, but the number of owners was the same as sow. The present list comprises sixteen three-year-plds, three four-year-olds, tova fire-year- olds, and the remainder five, six and aged, and unquestionably includes neatly whole Jpiok of the home at present on the New Zealand tuif. The Waitara Jockey Clnb annual race meeting will take plaae on Hew Year's Day, for which an admirable -bill of fare is oatvis., Handicap Hurdle race of 40 sots, Hask Hurdle race of 10 sots, Maiden Plate of 30 eors, Sapling Stakes of 90 sots, Waitara JoekeyOJub Handicap of 125 sots, 2 miles, Bailway Plate of 80 eova, 1 mile, Publicans' Hsndioap of '75 sots, 1$ miles, Hack race of 10 soys, and Consolation of SO eova. Nominations for tho Handicap Hurdles 2 eov», Waitara Jockey Club Handicap 3 sots, and Publicans 9 Handicaps sots, close on Saturday, November 18th; acceptances And general entries December 23rd, at 8 p.m. Wβ {Nelson "Mail") are glad to learn from Mi John Kerr, who is itiU in Auckland, that the valuable lot of fcoreee which he purchased in America, and brought down by the last mail steamer, we» landed safely and in good condition. We are indebted to him for the following I'st of his new importations, which, in compliance with our request, he kindly telegraphed:—No. i, Fits fames, by Owes Dale; No. 2, blaok stallion, by a eon of Patchem j "No. 8, bar «taUfon Ifvington, by Hambletonisn out of Imogene, by American Stefj Ho. V bay ctaUion, Hawlanda HambbtoniAn, by Speculation 5 No. 6, bay •tallica, Oak Grove, by Irringtonj Up. 6, bay BtallioD, Oeriett, by Irrington; No. 7, dark dapple grey stallion, by Metsenger j No. 8, grey mare, Lady Allen-} No; 9. g»y mare, Smooth Briar j No. 10. bay mere, Fanny; No. 11, bay snare, L»dy Silvia. All of these animals have loogend excellent pedigrees, and are likely to prove , a valuable importation for horse breeders in Hew Zealand. Mr Kerr has shown a considerable amount of pluck and enterprite in making these purchases and undertaking the risk of bringing euch valuable horses so long a vojage, and we trust that he wilt find his speculation Bβ biehly remunerative a* it deserves to be. From the above it would appear that we were misinformed last week in s&jics that the whole shipment was for Nelson. We have since learned that the balance will proceed to Sydney. At the annual meeting of the Wangamu Jockey Clnb the qaeition of reappointing Mr Hatoly as handieapper was considered, and, after some disontrion, a motion was carried to the effect that three members of the club ehall act »c a handicapping committee in future. V B was also notified at the above meeting &s& the Jockey Club when arranging their next programme* the Onp race would be run jon the first day. Amaaon, thr Anteroa -Bevoke filly («*ye "Ariel"), which perfowned so promisinsly afc the Autumn meeting, haa wintered so far remarkably well, under the careful superintendence of Jack Millison, and has filled out and famished into a really handsome mare, looking like an animal that will earn her I oats, and s> bit over. I bear that there is a likelihood of a being formed to purcbaw Amazon from *& "ZjmpoJ ' Gal' fa S her, a,ad keep her Iα Auckland. The filly has already shown ooHsideraDle torm, ana 1 havo no doubt would well repay the purchase of Honour, the speedy daughter oi Kelpie, is found to be in foal to Musket. Both Raupo and Toi-toi have shpned twun to Musket* - ' . - An Auckland correspondent forwards f Beacon " with the following items of news: —«The Aoeklaod Stud Company, or at least some of the ahareholdere in it, have formed themselves into a combination to tram ana race the yoans itook instead of holding an'annual sa& of yearlings. They have started with Eatipo, «umsUek, Snider, ana Florin, whien have beea givea to a boy to train.

In the flat race we notice the name of a few well bred: animals, notably Xdalium and Taiarea. Sbe: list of aominetions appears elsewhere. ; The list of successful jockeys to Jose 18th, is stiU headed by F. Archer, with a total of 64 wins to Mβ credit, O. Wood coming next with 56. At the end of the Ascot Week of 1881 the leading pair were Archer and Wood;' with the respective records of 72 and 49. GL Fordham (with S3) and T. Ganaon (with 26) fill third and fourth places, as was the case at this time lust year, their winning mounts then being 26 and 30. Tristan's three victories at Ascot will credit Mr Lsfevre with the sum of £3718, the Hardwicke Stakes being worth £8778, the Gold Vase £380, and the Nineteenth Hew Biennial £560. In addition U the above the ■on of Hermit and Thrift has won this year £1657—the value of the Epsom Stakes, Epsom Gold Gup, and two Queen's Plates — whOe altogether Mr Lefevre'e colt, since he first ran at Lincoln in 1830, has won for his owner the large sum in stakes of £8120 lOi, Lord Bradford during the Ascot week has won in stakes £5935. Of this Quicklime contributes £2525, Estreat £2480, and Battlefield the remainder.

' According to Beocoa'e chronograph, Foxhall won the Ascot Gold Gup in 4min 35see $ Bobertthe Devil's time last year being 4min 12tee. In 1830 Xeonomy occupied 4min isMo,and in the previous year smin 12seo. The following are a few preceding record*: —Veraetiil in 1878,4tnin 50aoo; Pebraroh in 1877, 4min 33seo{ Apology in 1876, 4mia 45ses; and Donoaster in 1875, 4rmo 39eeo. Tom Gannon has ridden the winner four times in this event in four successive years.

Buisella, a two-year-old, full sister to that equine wonder, Maud 8., has been purchased for £2000 by a Mr Robert Banner. She living produce of Miss Butsell, the dam of the above, numbering nine, are valued at £38,000. Borneo was colored on the card for the Grand Prize of Paris, but unfortunately Mr Keene'a colt met with, an accident, ana did not start for the race.

Lady Audley, by Macaroni oat of Seoret, the dam'of Pilgrimage, Pellegrino, Bfc. Louie, &s., met with an accident at the Chamant Btnd recently, end had to be destroyed. The mate was foaled in 1867, and lsit September was porohued by MrLefevre for £1200. ' Mr Houlds worth's' two filiiee by Adyen» turer out of Morgiana—■ Boselle and Adrians —hare won between them at Ascot £3490, the New Stakes, won bj the latter, being worth £1340, and the Coronation Stakes, taken by Bozelle, amounting to £2150. . Biz Bobert I. Anion haa been appointed starter at Manchester vice Major. Dixon, resigned. ;■ ■■ " After the race with Tristan in the Hardwioke Stakes Sweetbread came prominently into the St. Leger betting, end m backed to win about £14,000 at from 83 to 1 to 80 to 1. TheMardcaPdrksale of yearlings went off Tery successfully and realised good prices, the twenty-six lots offered averaging 289gs. The highest priced animal was purchased by Mr Long for Australia- at 1050/s. She if aohesnut filly, fey Hefmifc out of Breakwatery % Buccaneer. THe Hoa, J. White also secured a couple for the antipodes—viz., a colt by Strathconan from Lady Augusta, by Stookwell, for SOOga} and a br f (sister to Incheape) by Seesaw out of Inch, for 320gs. Probably these youngsters will remain in England until they have gone through their two-year-old engagements. . -h,. The " Turf, Field aad Farm " ie creditably informed that Iroquoie, last year's Derby and; St. Leger winner, will never start in anothes* race. His owner, Mr P. LorilfeTd, h&H declined to tell him, and has decided to bring him home and use him as a eire at B&ncoa&s, his great breeding establishment in Kew I Jersey, Americans ahould rejoice over this deoiaion, because the winner ot the two great English events, the Derby and the St. Leger, should get moehorees of the first olaw, if there is anything in blood, quality and performance, j Troquotr should wosiTe c xoonng weloome 'home. ■ '.•■.<" ■■■-' ■: ■■> - -.■..-■ -
