As is usu&l during the holiday period the Biccarton racecourse will bear a deserted appearance, as practically every stable will be represented at Meetings away from home. The list of horses racing over Christmas week is as follows:—Auckland R.C.: Azalea, Berate, Grand Beview, Concentrate, Gay Cres't, Fast Passage, Jaloux, Great Star, Tout la Monde, Silver Biag, The Quorn, Fracas, Cricket Bat, and Silver Scorn. Manawatu 8.C.: Fleeting Glance, Drumfire, Silent Flight. Westland 8.C.: Polydora, Verden, Dahas, Bedspray, Scarlet Pimpernel, Adelphi, Pakitere, Biri, Binging Cheer, and The Sun. Duaedin J.C.: tip Tree, Nightguard, Chief light, Silver Sight, Counterplay, Teresina, Boyal Sceptre, Wise Choice, Starshooter, Water Polo, Niggerhead, Importance, and Eclair. Holiday Dividends. Baling the holiday racing period opening on Monday next, two clubs will inaugurate the system of win and place Cls in the Dominion. They are the anaki Jockey Club on Monday and Tuesday, and the Stratford Bacing Club a week later. The straight-out win machine will be open on all races, and the place machine in events with five or more starters. The place machine will pay two dividends (50 per' cent, to each of the first and second horses) where there are five, six, or seven startera, and three dividends (33 1-3 ; per cent, to each placed horse) there are more than seven starters. The usual practice in regard to coupled horses will be observed. The Manawatir Bacing Club has decided to adopt the system of three dividends in fields of nine or more totalisater numbers, and two dividends in fields of between five and eight (inclusive) numbers. The unit of investment will be ten shillings. The Marton Jockey Club will follow Awapuni's lead. The Wairarapa and Greymouth Clubs will pay out two dividends in fields of or more horses, and the Auckland and Dunedin dubs will adhere to the old system. In Same B&ce Again. In the Gillies Hack Handicap at the Mamawata Meeting last Boxing Dav, the Trentham-trained Solitaire 11. opened her winning account, in the Dominion, and she. is among the acceptors for the race again on Monday. 'She has had a lot of racing lately, and is very fit at present, but the field she will be meeting thiß year is undoubtedly stronger than the poor lot that opposed her last year. She will be carrying a stone more than twelve months ago. The horse she just hung on long enough to hold off laßt year was Sir Charles Clifford's Zeebrugge, and a head further away was Furlong, who was then owned by Mr W. McA. Duncan. The same colours may quite well fill the plaees again, as Sir Charles is strongly represented with Drumfire, who top weight with Solitaire 11., and Mr Duncan has a good one in Farmer engaged with 8-4. These three aUrae, without Navaho and Good Hunting, are capable of making a capital race of it. . Should Solitaire 11. win she will lose her hack status, but all the others have some way to go yet. I Piwt Visit to Sacecoorse. No racing episode equals in romance one registered by W. Stirling, of Moonee Valley op December 10th, when

LATEST NEWS FROM FAR AND NEAR

that lad of 17 summers piloted to victory the flrßt horse he rode in public on the occasion of his first setting foot on a racecourse. Never before had Stirling seen a racecourse from the inside. No wonder the tiny youth, listening in wonderment to the cheers which greeted him on returning to scale, answered the salutations in a manner hitherto unseen by racegoers. He pulled his cap from his »hf>fi<l and waved it at the crowd! Heavy Losses. Racing is not flourishing in America, as the following clipping from a New York paper, relative to the recentlyconcluded Latonia Meeting, will show: "From an authoritative source it was learned that the Latonia Jockey Club had a loss of more than 17,000 dollars on Saturday, by giving the 25,000 dollars added for the Latonia Championship Stakes. For this race the mutuel betting was less than 27,000 dollars. The speculation for the day totalled less than 175,000 dollars. When the Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes Was run, with 15,000 dollars as the prize, a loss of 11,000 dollars was suffered. It is now estimated that the loss will run into more than 50,000 dollars at the end of the twenty-eight day Meeting." A Battery's Use. An electric battery can get an extra effort out of a horso that is lazy, ungenerous, or a coward, but one thing it cannot do is to impart speed to a horso that does not possess it. And yet, rather ignorantly, some racing men have an idea it can accomplish even that. A Good Colt. At the V.A.T.C. Meeting at Cttulfield on December 13th, G. Jones won a two-year-old race for his patron, Mr \V. E. Kemball, with the Hunting Song colt Staghorn. The "Australasian" states that as he had never raced Jones was a trifle doubtful about him seeing out the five furlongs and a half. Good reports, however, were in circulation about hia galloping ability and no risks were taken about him by the bookmakers, and he was always at a short price. Their judgment was sound, as Staghorn after lying second till a furlong from the post took charge and jvon running away by four lengths. The "Argus" says the winner is a fine r looking colt, and the determined manner in which ho finished indicated that he will win more important races. Mr Kemball has several youngsters, and Staghorn givea promise of proving ono of the moßt profitable of them. Staghorn was bred by the late Mr W. G. Stead, and is out of Frosty Morn by Feramorz from Sunlight, a half-sister j to the Wanganui and Manavratu ("up winner Client. Grand National Winner. , The hurdle candidate Billy Boy is getting through a sound preparation at Ellerslie, and is thriving particularly well on it. He has been allotted several schooling tasks at different periods and his jumping leaves little to be desired. This will be a big asset in his favour over the solid fences' at Ellerslie, while his staying ability (for they are all two-mile races) will also- stand to him, and it would not be surprising to see him collect a stake before the fixture is through. J. Burgess, who has ridden him in most of his jumping engagements through the winter, wiU pilot him. Finished This Time. . Earl Sande, . for several, years America's best jockey, is again retiring from riding. He did so a couple of years ago, but after a season as a trainer, again took out a jockey's license at the commencement of this year. Becently it was announced that he had accepted an engagement to train and ride for an American owner; but he lias evidently decided to cut out the latter part. In October ho cancelled his jockey's license, and applied for one as a trainer. This means Americans have seen the last of Sande as a jockey. A Wise Move. At Newmarket (Eng.) in October a different starter acted on each of the four days. It was not the first time this experiment was tried out at Newmarket, as a similar test was staged in 1929. On one occasion there were different judges and different clerks of the scales each afternoon, as well as different starters. Lord Harewood, the senior steward of the Jockey Olub, disaussing the matter with a "Manchester "Sporting Chronicle" reporter, said: "We think it a very good thing to give starters who are regularly engaged at other meetings all over the country an occasional opportunity of starting at Newmarket." Opposed to Protests. The Aga Khan's colt, Felicitation, who I won the rich Middle Park Plate on protest against Manitoba, is far from a champion. Subsequent to that win odds were laid on him for the Dewhurst Stakes, seven furlongs, at Newmarket, on October 27th, but in a field of six he eonld only run fourth. The winner was Lord Derby's Hyperion, who is by Gainsborough from Selene. Third place was filled by Camcronian's brother, Lpehiel. Discussing the protest, a - London writer remarked: — "There would never Ije any objections if all owners were of the same mind about them as Sir Abe Bailey, who is a member of the Jockey Club. He has been racing here and in South Africa for over forty years, and I recall his saying he had never once lodged an objection or permitted his jockey or trainer to do so. On one occasion when he was not in the country he heard that a horse of his had been given a race on the objection lodged on his behalf. He insisted on paying over the value of the race to the owner of the disqualified horse." That is a good sporting spirit, no doubt, but racegoers . are entitled to consideration. It is funfair to a backer if his horso is beaten into second place, and there has been direct interference by the winner, that no objection should be lodged against the latter. Hurlingham's Handicap. In the Oamaru acceptances Hurlingham is weighted at 8-10 in the Flying Handicap at Oamaru, not 7-0 as telegraphed. ROYAL HOTEL, TJMARIi. This hotel has been completely refurnished aad renovated throughout, and is now able to offer select accommodation and excellent table. Beautifully situated, overlooking tho bay, the hotel is only two minutes from the Railway Station. Tariff: Ills Rer day— special arrangements by tho J. Collogan, Proprietor (late « West Coast and Temuka). C2SO?

J TROTTING NOTES. Reminder. Acceptances for the Canterbury Park and the Greymouth Trotting Club's Meetings will closo next Wednesday. Brackets at Asliburton. Ciro and Cloudy Range will be bracketed in the McLean Handicap at Ashburton on Monday and Ngingongingo and Tactless will bo bracketed in the Midsummer Handicap. Tt is seldom that there have been so few brackets at a trotting Meeting. First Representatives. M. Holmes, who recently touk over tliu team owned by Messrs Clarkson and Graham, will bo represented for the first time by those horses at Ashburton on Monday, when lie luis Resound and Sodium engaged. Derby Candidates. It is repotted that Taxpayer is boginuiug to do well again after his trip to Auckland, although he is still restricted to jogging work. ITis rival, Indianapolis, is still favouring his injured leg. J. J. Kennerley for Rolloliollo is to be driven in the Asliburton Cup by J. J. Kenncrlev, who is supervising tho last few days' training of R. B. Berry's candidate. Incorrect Marks. In the Longbeach Handicap, to bo decided at Asliburton on Monday, Warboat (4sec), College Boy (Iscc), Midnight Sun (2sec), Little Nelson (2 sec), War Officer (3sec), Boc-ky de Oro (lsoc), and Dolly liuon (4sec), arc giving away time to start in the race. Prospect for Carterton. It was early last season that Itoyal Chenault won his last race and he lias been off tho scone sinco the South Canterbury Meeting in October, but his effort in his previous start when he finished second to Flying Cloud at Methven was good. Against tho company ho is set to meet at the Wairarapa Meoting on Monday he may he expected to play a prominent part. Should do Well. Recent weather reports from Westport state that conditions are at present perfect, and appear as if they will remain so for the local Club's Meeting. If that is the case Mataunga should more than hold his own against the unhoppled trotters ho is to meet at the fixture which opens on Monday. Should tho track be heavy his prospects do nut appeal to such an extent, as he showed at Oamaru on Labour Day that he does not appreciate heavy going and he ! does not stay well unless he has a good track. Principal Event at Westport. There is not a very strong field engaged in the Williams' Memorial Handicap, the principal race, on the Westport card for Monday, and Travis Thorn, who showed considerable promise last season as a three-year-old, may account for the opposition. Among the Canterbury representatives in the race Avaunt may do best. At the Gore Meeting. At Gore on Monday the chief eveut to be decided is the Trotting Club Handicap, which has drawn a field of eighteen. Canterbury horses engaged are Louis Bingen, Gumdiggcr, Tini Uria, and Great Chenault. The Oaniarutrained pacer, Red Spur, while suffering a temporary lapse of form at the Forbury Park Meeting last month, is expected to race a great deal better on this occasion. Others anticipated to run well ill tho event are Great Chenault and the Southlander, Blue Mountain, The last-named is a five-year-old gelding by Blue Mountain King from Mother Machree, and he is trained by J. MacConnell. In the remaining events form horses are:—Croydon Handicap: Kamaldar, Kippagh, and Lee Boy; Trial Handicap: Blue Mountain Queen, General Wrack, and Oklahoma; Telegraph Handicap: Quita, Ayr Lass, and Weary Voyage; Christmas Handicap: Just Shandi, Wee Scotty, and Nelson Pointer; Mataura Handicap: Lee Boy, Early Bingen, and Ivamaldar; President's Handicap: Oklahoma, Senorita, and Little Claire; Final Handicap: Gumdigger. Great Chenault, and Willow Wave. Well-bred Young Trotter. For some time past R. B. Berry lias been working a likely-looking novice in Sister Mary on tlie Addington tracks. The filly has not done anything to suggest that she is working like an early winner as she looks as if she will want more time and certainly experience, but she should be smartened up by her outing at Asliburton, which will be her first race. Sister Mary is a three-year-old by Guy Parrish from Sister Maud, the dam of Sister llosc, Sister Maud is by Nelson Bingen from Lady Derby, by Rothschild from Norice, so it can be seen that Berry's young trotter is possessed of the right breeding credentials. An Imposing Record. Gold Country, who is expected to perform with credit at the Asliburton Meeting on Monday, and incidentally add to his already good prize list, lias a very imposing record this season. In ten starts he has been out of the money only cnce. He has won four races, been second twice, and third three times, and has earned £950. He should reach the four figure mark on Monday. v A Previous Winner. While Lindbergh is generally believed to be a better lufrse on a clay than on a grass track his performance in the Asliburton Cup of 1930 should not be forgotten. In that event lie was driven by C. King, who will pilot him again on, Monday, aiid he won from Wrackeen and Wakatua in 4min 28 3-5 sec, the class being 4min 32sec. Among the best backed of the unplaced division were Neeoro, Vendome, and Steel All. Lindbergh looks one of the most likely to trouble Gold Country in this year's event. ■lmprovement Expected. Ngingongingo was showing quite a lot of dash in his race at New Brighton earlier in the month when he struck interference and he left the impression that he would, be considerably improved by that race as he was then big in condition. f Ho may not yet be ready to race a solid two miles, but his performance on Monday at Asliburton will be watched with interest. As he will be bracketed with Tactless on the totalisator the pair will not by anv means be friendless.

ASHBURTON T.C.

The Ashburton Trotting Clul> will hold its Summer Meeting 011 Monday when a fine programme will bo decided. The principal ovent is the Ashburton Trotting Cup. which lias attracted a most select field, and au exciting contest should ensue. Later in the day the high-class- pacers -will also be seen out in the Boxing Day Handicap, of a mile and a quarter. The truck is reported to be in fine order and it may bo expected that some very fast times will be recorded ns tlio Ashburton track is noted for the very performances which liave been registered there. Beiug held 011 such a favourite date, Boxing Bay, the fixturo can bo expected to be well patronised, and with good fields engaged in every race and tho riglit type of .horse to attract racegoers everything points to the meeting being a success. Suitable railway arrangements have been provided ami there will be two special trains leaving Christehurch at 9.35 a.m. and !>.!>o a.m., and arriving at the Racecourse in ample time for the first- race, which is scheduled to start at 12.5 p.m. Tho programme is as follows: — 12.5 p.m.— MIT CHAM HANDICAP, Of 123 sovs. For unhopplod trotters. 3min 51spc class.

Pago Girl appears to have tho best prospects of the remainder. Kcsound, Don Giovanni, and Page Gii| arc likely to be well supported. 12.45 p.m. WAKANUI HANDICAP, Of I~*» mivs. tfinin <lsser clas«*.

His third to Olive Key and Waress at Kiccarton at the Banks Peninsula Meeting was a good effort, and he will have many admirers for this race as a result. Iron Man lias several promising performances to his credit and he should be capable of a good display, while of those further back Smoke Screen makes the most appeul. Donum, Iron Man, and Smoke Screen may dispute favouritism. 1.30 p.m.— ASHBURTON TSOTTING CUP HANDICAP, Of 500 i>ovk. -limn 27sec cias*. Tv.o miles.

Of the three on the front of the handicap, Auto Machine. Gold Country, and King Pointer, Gold Country is infinitely superior as Auto Machine has failed to go away in any race since brought south, and King Pointer has passed the days when improvement may be expected. Lindbergh aud Kegal Voyage share the 12vds mark and the pair will not bo despised. Lindbergh, in tho same form as when he won on the last day of the Cup fixture, will have to bo reckoned with, and Kegal Voyage, although a disappointment, at the same fixture, has shown pleasing form in her work since. Free Advice has been off colour and although now on the improve she can hardly be expected to be yet at her best. Rollo will probably race to better advantage than he did at the Cup Meeting, as ho has been showing up better in his work, and he now looks better than he did a couple of months ago. Terence Dillon appears to be held safe by Hoi l'Or at the difference of 12yds, and tlie winner of the Free for All is not too far back to be handicapped out of the race. Although he is reckoned a better sprinter than he' is a stayer, he has some first-class performances to his credit over two miles, and he should be on hand at the finish of this. Gold Country looks' the outstanding horse and he promises to start favourite. His strongest opposition may be extended by Lindbergh and Roil' Or. 2.10 p.m.— McLEAN HANDICAP, Of 17!) sovs. "min DOscc class. due milo and u lialf.

Craganour failed at his last start but lie was off colour and produced in his best form again he will dispute matters. Gay Gordon is a pacer above the average and he will have many supporters but the one most likely to dispute the issue with Craganour is Avernus, who has yet to be out of a place this season. In his" last four starts he has run two thirds and has won twice. He has to give Craganour 24yds, and while he may not be successful in doing this he will make a determined effort to do so. Nearer the back, Wrecker appears to have the best chance. Allowing that Craganour was not. in his best form at his last start he is likely again to carry the bulk of investments, but Avernus and the Cloudy Kange-Ciro br.-u ket will also have strong support. 2.50 p.m.— WINStOW HANDICAP, Of 175 sovs. For unhoppled trotters. 4min ■s'Jsec claiss.

Her form at the meeting was slightly better than tliot of Silver de Oro. but little has been seen of her since. Sodium has to be taken more or less 011 trust as a two-miler. Sunny Morn has raced very consistently for O. E. Hooper, and his performances at the Cup fixture were very soild. Since then ho raced well at New Brighton and being a good beginner and a true stayer lie should be in the picture all the time. Gunfire may be a dangerous contender ami Great Author has been responsible for some very attractive work. Sir Guy has proved himself a most, consistent performer and his For bury Park efforts last, month were full of merit. It will not be surprising to see him making a bold bid for victorv. AVrackler appears to be too far back. This race bears a very open appearance, but three who may be favourably considered are Sunny Morn, Silver de Oro, and Sir Guy. 4.10 p. 111.— LONGBEACH HANDICAP, Of 100 sovs. 37st>c class.

Elsie raced very well at tho Banks Peninsula Meeting and showed that she was approaching winning form again, by running third from the back mark. She will not have such a field to contend with this time and she nppears to hold a good opportunity of success. College Boy is in first-class order at present, and he has shown improvement since his recent victory. He should again give a good account of himself. Little Nelson, War Officer, and Tatsy de Oro have form to recommend them, but final selections may be in favour of Elsie de Oro, College Boy, and Little Nelson. 4.50 p.mboxing day HAKDICAP.

I A NORTHERN REVIEW. .Since the publication of the acceptances for the Auckland Oup there lias been little changing of opinions about the relative merits of the candidates, and the issue is at present narrowed down to the best of the South Islanders and tho best of the North, says the Auckland writer "Early Bird.'-' In the former category Concentrate, Fast Passage, and Jaloux seem to be the pick, and in the latter Antique, Eoval Artist, GoM Trail, and Great Emblem. Despite the fact that Gay Crest is a real racehorse at Ellerslie, he is not being enquired for these days, for he has run only one good race this term, and that was against Historic ia the Harcourt Cup. Even Tout le Monde had it heavily on his companion on Tuesday morning at the end of their seven furlongs flutter. If Gay Crest is to win Bt Ellerslie" this trip, it will have to be on the later, days of the Meeting. Impressive Work. ■ Concentrate looks at liis very best, and he galloped brilliantly on Tuesday morning at Ellerslie. He was accompanied by Fast Passage over seven furlongs, which they ran in good time, even allowing for the fact that it was beaten later in the morning. It was the manner in which Concentrate did liis work that impressed a good deal, for it looked as if he could have gone 011 with it at the sumo steady pace. Three years back, as a four-vear-old. Concentrate won the Auckland Cup. carrying 7-10, and the following year he was third with 8-13. As a result of his Melbourne breakdown he was missing from the lield last Boxing Day. With 9-3 this year up against what is re garded as a weak field, he has a wonderful opportunity of repeating his viotory o£ 1929. as he is a very fit,horse. Fast Passage. Considering the ease with which Fast Passage won the New Zealand Cup, it would have seemed almost impossible for anything that finished behind her on that day —and so far behind—to turn the tables upon her at Ellerslie seven weeks later. There was solid foundation for that reasoning, but the troublo now is that she has since come under a cloud. She was given .a fast work-out with Concentrate on Tuesday, and she hit out very freely indeed, travelling particularly smoothly _ and apparently finishing full of Tunning at tho end of seven furlongs. But when she walked back to the scraping sheds she was} very sore in the hindquarters, and that did not look very promising. It therefore remains to be seen if tlie New Zealand Cup winner will complete the course in the Auckland Cup on Monday. The tracks are hardening up and continuous hosing will not case them .much. Aucklanders still remember that Fast Passage had to be pulled up half-way through the Great Northern Oaks last Easter Monday. A Gk>od Chance. •laloux was not sent against the watch on Tuesday morning, although he hit out very well indeed when given long work on the tan track. He has a good pull in the weights over both Concentrate and Fast Passage, and as he showed such fine form at Ellerslie last Christmas, winning the Summer Cup and beating all except Great Star in the Grandstand Handicap, he must be al- | lowed to hold a really good chance of ! oapturing the more important Auckland • Cup stake this year. j Antique Likely. . It is confidently expected that tnc best of the northern representatives in the Cup will be Antique, the doubt about him being bis ability to sec ou I two miles. There seems to be r f a j reason for Ibis doubt, for in all IIS races he has given evidence of stamina. He crime from the back to win «e j

I A.lt.C. Autumn Handicap last Easter I Monday, with 9-S, and he finished l»*e a train at the end of the mile and 'a half Then in the Avondale Cup be was running on with 9-12 after meeting with two distinct checks in the straight, and three weeks later, wit" 9-12 again, he was flying right on the heels of the placed horses in the mile and a half Mitchelson Cup. He I finished fourth in that event, less than a length behind the winner. . With a drop to 8-0 on Boxing Day, Antique should run the race of hi 3 life. His sire, Tollbridge, was got by Fommcrn (a son of Polynielus . al }~ grandson of Cyllene), and right through this line there is stamina. N*evsky, the dam of defunct Tonbricige, was by Cicero from Birdstving, a daughter of Flying Fox. It would therefore be a bold man who would say . that Antique would not stay after stinking these aristocratic lines. Next to Antique, in the Estimation of northerners who have closely followed handicap form, there cotue» Royal Artist. He is an easy horse to handle, and one unlikely to knock himself about, a-big factor when it comes to asking a horse for a finishing effort at the end of two mil^s. The Lesser lights. Great Star, who looks even better than on bis previous visits to Auckland., is an interesting contender, aud other possibilities are Great Emblem. Red Sun, Speedmint, Tigepsm, and the three-year-olds. Tout le Monde and Gold Trail. In all her races m the north, the last-named has shaped like a stayer. She is also in the Christnyis Haudieap, but. brilliant as she is she tvould have a stumbling block in Silver Scorn there. A fine gallop by Tout le Monde on Tuesday brought him into some demand, and he is preferred to his bracketed c°®~ panion, Gay Crest, but he has the biS part in front of him to beat the best of tho older horses. On the day there may not,be more than a dozen runners in the Auckland Cup, and the smaller the field the easier it will bo to win, for Ellerslie is not like Riccarton. On the northern course almost half of the full "journey of two miles is taken up with bends, which makes it rather trrchy. Summing up at this st?.ct, one ieels advised to go beyond the New Zealand Cup winner. Fast Passaee, and to show main preference for Concentrate, Antique. Jaloux, and Royal Artist.

I Silver King, who arrived yesterday, i was allotted strong pace work, moving | very freely. He is to contest the Rail- ' way Handicap and Derby, j Cold Trail was also out doing useful ! exercise. Her knee is still slightly en- ! larged, but does not appear to affect j her. Blacksmith was schooled over a couple of hurdles, showing a slight improvement on yesterday. Oarfox. High Pitch, and King's Archer ! have arrived. All Supreme was scratched to-day for all engagements at Ellerslie, and Imamint was scratched for the "Robinson Handicap. AWAPUNI. Vi;SS» ASSOCIATION TELEuaA.it ) PALMEHSTON X„ December 23. Operations at Awapuni were restricted to easy work on the plough this morning. Only one gallop was executed. The two-year-old Safari (Reed), who displayed disappointing form yesterday when sprinting across the top. went much better in a straight run from tho six furlong post to the three furlong post. He rau tho distance in 38 2-ssec. There was not a single visitor on the tracks, but Carroll is expected from the north to-day and Cutts and Christmas from liiccarton. Tigcrism and Royal Bengal were scratched at 4.30 p.m. yesterday. The tracks are hard and fast, but rain that would be beneficial is threatening. WINGATLI. .rr.BuS ASSOCIATION TKUSa&AM : ! DUiS'ED]N", December '23. A strong gale was against fast times at AVingatui this morning. This was partially the cause of so few horses being sent agninst the watch. Nightly "had Night Lad for a companion over half a milo on the course proper, the pair running the distance in 54sec. Princess was the only one of Gieseler's team to gallop, and she rau half a mile, (he last three against the wind in 43sec. Water Power jumped off from the mile post on the tan track and ran three furlongs from the seven to the four furlong post in 3(isec. She was then joined by Brown Pearl, and ran the last half-mile in 53 l-ssee. It was a. pleasing gallop, j The only other gallop of importance ! was recorded by Pair Exchange, who ran a mile on the tan track in lniiu 41 sec. All llie other locally-trained horses engaged at the Meeting were given from half to strong work on the plough.
