In ref • plying to a suggestion as to the man- ' ner which it would be advisable to / -•«tp e nd-. a portion of that sum, Mr ■ George Woodfordo (chairman) said, at „ .the annual meeting of members of the club, that in accumulating tho reserve , ' fund the committee had in mind the probable introduction of the totalisator in Victoria.

After • Sirag him a long arid unsuccessful trial k the flat, the Messrs Mitchell put f Jum to jumping, and his first win was . : iv steeplechase. Subsequently Bib- ■,* "enlwke won steeplechases at Caulfield, <■ "omington, and Randwick, and hurdle V v races at Sydney suburban courses, i Many of the w.f.a. races in the old days ircra the reverse of truly run > (wntci "Pilot" in tho Sydney "Ref- '), but such was not the case ». when Carbine and Megaphone met in / toe Craven Plato of 1890.

The third horse. Cuirassier, was 20 lengths off,. and Cardigan was last. Mr D. S. Wallace received only £459 for the win, . whereas to-day the race carries/£2OOO ..acided money.

SOME COMMENTS ON THE FORM. Sydney papers to hand by yesterday'# mail bring full details of tho racing- nt Randwick on the first and second days of the A.J.C. Spring: Meeting-. SPRING STAKES. Discussing Poit-el's defeat of Gloaming- in tho Spring Stakes, "Pilot" write® in tho Sydney "Referee" of October Bth: — It was certainly Messrs W. and F. A. Moses's- lucky month when Poitrel was offered at auction as a yearling at Randwick in April, 1916, and failed to reach a reeervo of something less than 300gs. They thereupon decided to h&ve him trained, and though liko moei of St-. Alwyno's progeny, lie was not a success as a two-year-old, his deeds since have made hiin a profitable horso. H-o ran a great race when he beat Desert Gold in last year's Spring Stakes, and an almost equally good one when ho downed Gloaming in that race on Saturday last. Tho rain of Thursday and Friday was opportune for Poitrel, as though a hard track might not have disposed of his chance, it | might have jarred him 6Utnciently to have | adversely affected his prospects in other races at the Meeting-. On the other hand, Mr Greenwood thought the track might bo soft enough to tell against Gloaming. Still, tho lattc-r was a sound favourite, though, of coucee, Poitrel and Saaanof _ were well backed. Outside tho thred mentioned, sup- ■ port for anything wao of tho lightest. _ Kennaquhair and Cotigno looked well, but it was too much to expect either to quit® win. GLOAMING OUTSTAYED. Raihor unexpectedly, Saaanof was tho early leader, but as he drew the rails, and nothing else evinced any desire to get to the front, ho could not avoid the position. The paco was slow, with Gloaming as Sasanof'a nearest attendant at the mile, tnd lau 'Or last. A little further on Gloaming went on with the running, and Prince Viridis mcvrd up second, while, before , reaching the half-mile, lan 'Or also joined in. At the half-mile Saaanof and Poiticl were nearest this trio. Gloaming drew away at tho bond, and was going so strongly when he turned into the straight ahead of Prince Viridis, Saaanof,, Poitrel, lan 'Or, and Kennaquhair, that a win for him seemed certain. Poitrel was hampered for the few strides in trying for a run, but then he got through. Ho quickly closed on Gloaming, and Deeley, who probably thought ho had the race fjuit® safe at tho leger, lost no time in getting to work. Gloaming responded gamely enough, and momentarily looked like stalling off Poitrel. The chestnut, however, hung on, and worried the Now Zealandcr out of it in the last few etrides. FORM OF BEATEN HORSES. No excuse was possible for Gloaming. He certainly made the running after passing the mile, but the pace... was not severe, and until Poitrel came at him he was going comfortably. Half-way down the straight Kennaquhair momentarily showed a bold front, but Cetigne, running on bettor than the chestnut, gained third place. Sas&nof was disappointing, but the slowness of paoe that enabled lan 'Or to run from last at the mile to nearly first in tho next three furlongs probably told against the New Zear larder, T'hana did not look her old self, but she finished ahead of Prince Viridis and lan 'Or, who weakened in the straight as a result tol their earlier efforts to run down Gloaming. The last home wore The Fortune Hunter and Carbern, but as both look well they may'be 6een to greater advantage in handicaps before the closo of tho Meeting. I timed tho final mile carefully, and,. commcncin? on Saeanof, and finishing on Poitrel, made it 1.-K). The lattor actually did it much "faster, as he was some lengths behind Sasanof at the mile post.v TRIAL STAKES. Referring to tha Trial Stakes and Squatters' Handicap the same writer says:— Ard-na-roo won the Trial Stakes in a manner pleasing to his Caulfield and Melbourne Cup backers. The Destroyer and Posiastre made the running to three furlongs, but then Rossini shot out, and, when he turned into the straight, had such a useful lead that it seemed as if Ard-na-ree, who was only fourth, would be troubled to catch him. However, Ard-na-ree came along in euch fine style from the leger that ho had the three-year-old well beaten 50 yards from tho win-ning-post. _ Considering the going was a trifle soft when this race was run—it improved later— tho timo, 2min 7sec, was excellent, and if Ard-na-ree' takes kindly to the reverse way of goinc in Melbourne he should tal;e no end of beating in the Caulßold Cup. He is n big, strong fellow, and a bold galloper. The only exception that can bo taken to him ii that he carries his head rather higher thran most horses which have achieved note ns stayers. The Destroyer's form should havo about convinced his owner tb-a-t it is little use tryin? to win middle-distance races with him in P. company. Urney, too, shaped indifferently, and temporarily, at any rcte, he b"3 lo«t hit form of c few weeks back. Rossini, wlio is a brother to Chmibini, promises to make a very useful horse at four or fivo years. At present it is against him that he is a December foal. KARO'S VICTORY. New Zealand had a winning turn in the Squatters' Handicap, for which tho Newcastle representative, Eumaeus, was favourite. The latter ran well, but just when he had the pacemaker, Greg-, in trouble, inside tho last furlong, Karo sailed past both, winning easily. Outside the placegettero Sobrina was tho only runner that made a respectable ®how. ing. Always prominent, she mixed it with Greg and Eumaeus up to the leger, but then died out. Ab oh© looked a trifle new, perhaps she may do better before tho close of the Meeting. ; Lansell tired after making a daah that took him un fourth halfway down tho i straight, but neither Princess Clara nor < Phast Boy ever threatened danger. The < latter was last along -the back. Karo is a ■ Demosthenes mare, and it was subsequent j to running third to Gloaming and Sasanof ! in the Islington Plate at Auckland last sea- : eon that she was bought by Mr G. D. Green- i wood. Presumably he did so on the advico of R. J. Mason. j CANTERBURY J.C.'S METROPOLITAN I MEETING. The following handicap® have heea i declared: — - ] STEWARDS' HANDICAP, of 1500 eov«. t Six furlongs.
