Acceptances for the New Brighton Trotting Club's Autumn Meeting close on Monday evening. Sunbeam's victory in tho Winchraore Welter Handicap at Ashburton yesterday, marked his third successive trin. Twelfth Night, winno*-** <*f tho Juvenile Handica*. at Ashburton yesterday, was brod in Victoria by 3lr Harvey Patterson. I'aaali., the prey l>erby winner of ro:outlv foaled a grey colt to Chaucer. This aeaeon she was mated with Sunstar. At the recent Sydney yearling sales, Charlema-jno 11. had 'two representatives, and they averaged £394 apiece, two by Varco averaged £236 10s, and thr-'t* by Vasco n ade £209 each. Messrs Thompson Brothers, of tho Oakleigh Stud, sent up and sold seventy yearlings at the recent Sydney sales, which realised* -CI4.S7S. an average price of £-_>l_? 10s.
Canute's recent form has been da. cidedly consistent. At the South Canterbury Meeting last week he finished second each day in the principal race, and at Ashburton ho ocenpied third place bach day in the chiftf event. Firmhold, tvho finished third in the Longbeach Hack Handicap at Ashburton on Thursday, -n-as vory unlucky in that race, as he lost a lot of ground at the start. Yesterday, in the Moreton Hack Handicap, Fonnhold was first away- ; and never left tho issue in doubt-, winn-ng easily by three length-. Princess tho winner of the Ono Thousand Guineas, is half-eister to tho Derby winner Sunstar. and to Whito Star, lately purenased by ilr Sol Green, of MelWrr.o, for £10,000. Princess Dorrio is by Polymelus, by Cylleno from Maid Marian* while Sunstar and "White Star are by Sundr'dge. Evolyn and F. E. Bolls, "who finis-hed first and s.cond in tho Solma Trot Hindicap at tho Ashburt-on County Racing CluVs Autumn Meeticß yesterday, axe engaged in tho New Brighton Trotting Derby, to bo run next Saturday. Evelyn is a full-sister to tho champion pacing maro Einmcline. For Sunioeh, the Gran'i National winner, his owner (Mr T. Tyler) last year gave £313. Tho horso has been frequently hunted with tho Quorn Hunt, and it is an interesting fact Sunloch has taken no fewer than fourteen first prizes at tho show ring in tho M'dlands in thc hunter.* classes. Haiana, who won the Second Hurdle Handicap at Ashburton yesterday, was racing on the fiat at the Rooffcon Jockey Club's Autumn Meetinc. whero ho won tho Boatman's Handicap and ran third in tho Farewell Handicap.' In his race yesterday, Hatana was in front practically all tho way, and it was only his blundering at the last fence that lot Daylight Bill momentarily into the lead. Tlie Cornet, who "won the Autumn Handicap at Ashburton yestesday, was successful in the same raco twelve months ago, carrying sixteen pounds less than ho did yesterday. In view of the ground ho had to make up over the last throe furlongs The Cornet put up a very meritorious performance in winning as -ho did. Canute, who finished third, did not appear to relish the final struggle in tho heavy going. Tcviotdalo's win in tho Wakanui Handicap at Ashburton yesterday, was by no means surprising to followers of form. At Timaru last week he ran third in the Flying Handicap on tho first daj-j and on tho second day won the Fare-veil Handicap in good stylo. At Ashburton ou Thursday he lost a lot nf ground at the start of tho Grove Farm Handicap, and was never ablo to get near tho leaders, but in the Farewell Handicap yesterday, ho was in a good position "when the straight was reached, and won by a length from Peg.

Hall Walker's brood mare, Cherry Lass, which occurred recently, was that sho aud Mother Siegel—dam of tho Derby winner Minora—took fright at the noise of tho waggou horse bells (used on tho cart horses at Tully Stud Farm) and had a severe gallop. None of the other animals at tho stud took tho least notice of tho sound. As a result of tho gallop-'ng Mother Siegel slipped twins, and tho youngster (a colt by Royal Realm) carried by Cherry Lass, became badly placed, and in its straggles fatally injured tha mare. Cherry Lass's foal, after the dam's death, was found to be dead. Cherry Lass was destroyed at onto without further euffo--ine;;and the operation of removing her foal was undertaken after her death.
