TURF GOSSIP. | Jticcarton Bred. A winner at the Ascot (Sydney) meeting on May 10 was Truesign, a four-year-old filly by Heroic from the former Riccarton mare Lovesign by Nassau from Formnal by Boniform from Signal. Formnal was also the dam of Theda, who produced Great Star. Lovesign was bred and raced by J. H. Prosser, and was sold a few years back to Mrs C. O'Donnell, of New South Wales. Ellerslie Prospects. Gibraltar and Prolyxo, winners at Te Rapa, were both rehandicapped for the Cornwall Handicap at Ellerslie and are likely to race prominently. Gibraltar ran Peter Jackson to a neck in the Great Northern St. Leger Stakes at Ellerslie last year, and a few days later won the Foley Memorial Handicap at Avondale, but his subbsequent form was so disappointing that he was sold a few months ago. He has now struck form again, with two wins in fcuccession. Prolyxo, sister to Ammon Ra, since being leased by Dr. Milsom to Mr L. S. Otway, of Cambridge, is right back to her best form, and this year has secured four wins, five seconds, and three thirds, only twice being unplaced, and has collected £765 in stakes. Improvements at YVingatui. Alterations are being carried out to the paddock totalisator house on the Wingatui course, and when the work is completed the public will be able to see the figures on the win-and-place machines side by side. A Surprising: Decision. The special Sydney correspondent oi tho "New Zealand Referee" states that in answer to a question by J. T. Jamieson at Brisbane on Saturday the rider of Wollun said he would have lost by lengths had he stopped his mount from lying over on Closing Time. It is reported that the decision not to alter the placings caused general surprise, which, in view of the winning jockey's admission, is not a cause for wonder. True Blood. The Great Northern Hurdle Race has frequently been won by a good flat performer in his first season over hurdles, and this year a likely one in that category is True Blood. He has an exceptionally good flat record, and the journey should not trouble him. He has had a fair measure of experience as a hurdler during the last few weeks, and although he did not altogether shape at the Te Kuiti meeting as a definite Northern proposition he may run well. He goes well in heavy ground. Champions for Next Season. Followers of racing are looking forward to the meeting of Peter Pan and Silver Scorn at weight-for-age next season, says a Sydney paper. On form they stand out from the others of their age. Peter Pan is an exceptional colt, and some New Zealanders go so far as to contend that Silver Scorn is the best three-year-old Ally that has raced there. In view of the many high-class Allies the Dominion has produced that is saying a great deal. It is somewhat remarkable that two such good three-year-olds would not, on appearance, be selected as high-class racehorses. When F. T. Cush recently brought Silver Scorn over to Randwick his fellow-trainers were surprised at her comparative plainness. One thing about Silver Scorn that specially pleases her owner-trainer is her disposition. It would be impossible for anything to be more placid, and she is unlikely to give any worry when being prepared. Of the others of the same age as Peter Pan and Silver Scorn, it appears at this stage that Kuvera and Gaine Carrington will be best, but they have to bridge a big gap to make them formidable rivals for Peter Pan. Great Northern Candidate. Make Up had no difficulty in winning the King Country Steeplechase at Te Rapa on Saturday last, says a northern writer. He twisted somewhat at his fences early, but that was due to his being kept under restraint. However, when his rider let him go he jumped beautifully, and at the finish, though Lucess got within a length of him, it was only on sufferance. On the second day his rider did not show much judgment. At one fence along the back he got within half a length of St. Warrigal, and when the former took off Make Up did the same, and in consequence had a "life." At the fence near the half-mile he again got into a similar position, and Make Up took off again in the same time as St. Warrigal with the result that he topped the obstacle, tripped, and shot his rider out of the saddle. If Make Up had been kept clear of or alongside St. Warrigal the mishap would not hfive occurred, for Make Up is a very active jumper. It will be recollected that Beau Cavalier, in the Wellington Steeplechase (won by Pouri). met disaster through the same tactics. At the double in front of the stand Henderson, who rode Beau Cavalier, allowed Pouri to get within half a length of him at the first fence of the stand double. Pouri took off at the same time as Beau Cavalier and nearly came down. E. Warner was on Pouri, and, after getting him over the second fence of the double, set sail after Beau Cavalier, and. catching him, got half a length or a little more in front at the next obstacle. When Pouri jumped, so did Beau Cavalier, and that was the end

of Beau Cavalier, for Henderson fell into the trap he had set for Warner. Therefore, no notice should be taken of Make Up's accident, and he will be in evidence again at Ellerslie. Last year Landmark won a steeplechase at Te Rapa just before going to Auckland, to win the Great Northern Hurdle Race, and history has a good chance of being repeated. Tnrnover Tax Criticised. "It's the greatest pity that just as racing should be recovering from its set-backs, the turnover tax should threaten one of the integral factors of the Turf, the betting ring. If the turnover tax remains for another six months, there will be no betting ring, and then racing will suffer as it has suffered in other countries where the bookmakers dropped out." Thus spoke Mr R. Jansen, a leading ringman from Victoria, when questioned by the "Sydney Referee" about the effect of the New South Wales betting tax. Mr J. T. Hacket, a leading Sydney bookmaker, declared that it was ethically wrong for any section to be supertaxed upon something that was not income or revenue, something that is not coming in but might be outgoing. Yet this was the case with the 1 per cent. That was based on turnover irrespective of whether or not that turnover was on a winner which resulted in loss for the bookmaker concerned. Thus the bookmaker became the one individual in the community privileged to pay taxes on actual losses. It was ludicrous. It was worse, for unless the Government relieved the situation, it was probable that the books would be driven out of business. His experience proved that the business of making a book could not stand up to more than the taxes imposed before the 1 per cent. And they were quite sufficient to keep the ring from getting rich. The 1 per cent. took more than what had been the previous average income of the ringmen prior to its advent, and that meant that bookmakers either had to live on their reserves if they had them, praying for a turn up in the racing results, or fall by the wayside. There was no middle path. The busi- , ness simply could not afford the tax, and that was why, despite the turn of the tide in racing prosperity and increased attendances, dozens were dropping out of bookmaking. mostly "broke." A Safe Conveyance. High Commissioner, a double hurdle winner at the Te Kuiti meeting, was bred by Mr James Bull, of Hunterville, and is raced by the Te Rapa trainer, J. F. Tutchen, who, in his day, was a fine rider of hurdlers and steeplechasers. High Commissioner has been a consistent performer over hurdles, and his displays last week indicate that he is on the up grade. He had 9-5 in the Great Northern Hurdles, but was scratched some days ago. He is still in the steeplechase, however, in which he has 9-0, and in his present form must have a chance. Like most of the stock of All Red, High Commissioner is a good safe conveyance. No Action Taken. At the adjourned enquiry by the stewards of the Wanganui Jockey Club into the improvement shown by Curie in winning the Belmont Handicap on Saturday last, as compared with the first day's running, it was decided that no action be taken. ENGLISH RACING ITEMS WELL-KNOWN JOCKEYS: Latest papers from England contain a number of interesting items, and one is that of two well-known jockeys riding against their sons in the same race. They were S. and P. Donoghue and H. and C. Jelliss. This unusual occurrence was in the Wilford Selling Plate at Nottingham on April 11, and the younger Donoghue cut his father out of a win. Salmana, the horse ridden by Henri Jelliss in this race, finished a long way back, but he got home ahead of his son, whose mount was second last. Later in the day S. Donoghue won a two-year-old race, in which his son was last. Not Licensed. Touching on jockeys, it may be mentioned that, the Australian, B. Rosen, had not, up to the beginning of April, received a license to ride regularly in England this season. The present rule is that jockeys from other countries will not be granted a permanent license to ride in England unless they are definitely associated with some trainer. It was understood that Rosen would ride as first jockey for G. Duller's stable, but no retainer had been given. Mr V. Emanuel, Duller's principal patron, is greatly reducing his racing operations in England, so it seems improbable that Rosen's services will be required. South Africa's leading jockey, Cyril Buckham, will, however, be riding in England this season, having accepted an engagement from Mr A. DouglasPennant. Buckham was the first jockey in South Africa to ride 100 winners in a season, and his form during the last couple of years has been particularly good.

Below Expectations. Myrobella, England's champion two-year-old of last season, made her first appearance as a three-year-old in the Severals Stakes, five furlongs, at Newmarket, on April 5. The race was regarded as little more than a walk-over for her, but she had to be hard ridden to beat Complacent, whom she was conceding 191b. Her form was a lot below expectations, and doubts were expressed whether she would quite get the mile in the One Thousand. The day Myrobella won at Newmarket, Fur Tor was also successful, taking the Wood Ditton Stakes, one mile. When she met Myrobella in the One Thousand she beat her for second money. Other Winners. Derby candidates in Titian (Solario —Golden Araby) and Lochiel (brother to Cameronian) were also winners at the Newmarket meeting, while unplaced runners were King Salmon and Young Lover. Since then both the latter have shown greatly improved form, and enter into Derby calculations. It was in the Free Handicap Sweepstakes they failed. That is the race for which the Jockey Club handicapper weights all two-year-olds of any account at the end of each season, and it is decided when they are three. This year there were 30 runners, the topweight being the Aga Khan's colt, Felicitation (9-0). He ran nowhere, and it was the same with the favourite, Hot Fight. The winner turned up in the lightly-weighted Cotoneaster (Apple Sammy—Coton), who was one of the outside division. As a foal Cotoneaster was bought for £25 by F. Templeman, who now trains her for Mr E. ThornFree Handicap was worth £1260, so Cotoneaster has proved a bargain.

A Comparison. After the final forefeits there remains a field of 15 in the New Zealand Sapling Stakes to be decided next month. In last year's event there were 35 starters and the previous year a similar number faced the barrier, so this year's field is well up to the average as all will contest the race. Durbar Lodge, Ltd., has the largest entry, Greenmantle, Tondeleyo, and Vanity Fair having had their engagements continued. Novices. Among the novices who will be racing at New Brighton to-day are Great Wood, a four-year-old gelding by Great Audubon from Mary Wood, trained by C. Tasker at Addington; Goulburn, a five-year-old gelding by Peterwah from Amy Dillon, trained by E. Berry at Addington; Mother's Boy, a five-year-old gelding by Travis Axworthy from Evolution, trained by G. White at Rangiora; Royal Harvester, an aged gelding by Sonoma Harvester from an Underwood mare, trained by his owner, E. E. Lilley; Royal Parrish, a four-year-old gelding by Guy Parrish from Rita Rose, trained by I. Thompson; Red Huia, a five-year-old gelding by Huia Dillon from a Hal Zolock mare, trained by H. W. Aker, Sea Gift, a three-year-old filly by Wrack from a mare by Paul Huon, trained by J. Bryce at Hornby; Tangatu, a three-year-old colt by Man-o'-War from an Advance mare, trained by F. G. Holmes at Addington; Esplendor, a three-year-old filly by Rey de Oro from a Logan Pointer mare, trained by G. McKendry at Addington; and Grand Author, a four-year-old gelding by Author Dillon from Franzie Pointer, trained by L. Frost at New Brighton. A Solid Representation. C. S. Donald has a solid representation at the Kaikoura meeting to-day. With the exception of the two trotting events he has a horse in every race, his team for the day being Blondie, Special Sun, Gunmetal, Ulm, Golden Harvest, and Astral. Inadvertently Omitted. From the telegraphed list of horses remaining in the New Zealand Sapling Stakes after the declaration o£ final forfeits the name of Mrs M. A. Hall's b g Full Hand was omitted. Showed Early Promise. Bronte, a member of L. F Berkett's team, who will be racing at New Brighton to-day, is a four-year-old gelding by Nelson Bingen from Rose Alma. He had his first race at Westport on Boxing Day and won over a mile and a half in 3min 39 2-ssec. Later the same day he won over two miles in 4rnin 53 2-ssec, and at his third start, which was on the second day of the same fixture, he won again, this time taking 3min 38 4-ssec for a mile and a half. He met his first defeat on the same day when he was beaten into third place in a two mile, event, his time being 4min 56 4-ssec on a holding track. Such an opening to his career suggested possibilities in the young trotter, and although he was subsequently beaten at Greymouth early in the New Year when conceding long starts, he has not since started. While the opposition he accounted for at Westport may not have been of very much account, Bronte did all that was required of him, and it will not be surprising if he shows up prominently in the President's Handicap to-day. Off Colour. Little Nelson, who had been the early favourite for the Kaikoura Handicap until yesterday, will not now be a starter in the principal race at New Brighton to-day. A few days ago he appeared to have made a good recovery from a disability which had overtaken him, and it was decided that he should be accepted for, which he was. However, he did not progress well, and as he is still off colour it was decided not to race him. Fortunately his complaint is not of a very severe nature, and he should be his usual self again in a few days. HAWKE'S BAY T.C. ACCEPTANCES. (PIIKSS ASSOCIATION TELEGRAM.I HASTINGS, May 2G.

j KAIKOURA T.C.

TO-DAY'S MEETING AT NEW > BRIGHTON. REVIEW OF THE FIELDS. i The Kaikoura Trotting Club will hold its seventeenth annual fixture at the New Brighton Trotting Club's course to-day. In contrast to the fields usually in evidence when the club races at its own property, today's fields are very large, but, with the possible exception of one race, are not cumbersome. The track is in ideal condition at present, and although the majority of races to be decided are maiden or practically maiden classes there is some very promising material on hand, which will ensure good racing. A notable feature of the meeting i« that it marks the last, and in some cases the first, appearance of a number of two-year-olds before they contest the New Zealand Sapling Stakes, to be decided on ,Tun<j 10. Special tramway arrangements have been ! completed, and theve will be a frequent service to and from the course. The first race is timed to start at 11.15 am. The programme is as follows: 11.15 a.m.— IMPROVFKft" lIA.MjICAP ~f mi M ,\s. i;,,. hoppled trotters, 3min j I m;i; cla-.-, Out! mile and ;i half.

He was badly beaten at Oamaru, but at his last start over two miles he won the principal event at the Waiiarapa meeting in good style. Accras ran third to Little Nelson and Desert Maiden at Ashburton on April ; 22 and registered very good time in doing so. He is a very sound stayer and will probably be found doing his best work when the others 'ire stopping. Matchmaker lias performed satisfactorily in his recent track work and Smooger has been a useful winner in the North Island. Anything further back in the handicap does not make much appeal. War Ollicer, Accras, and Smooger may be fancied in that order. • 1.20 p.m.-i KAITIiUAU HANDICAP, of tin sovs. Jmin ■Usee clubs. One mile aud it half.

Margaret Chenault will not be without friends, nor will Recess, who reached the winning list at the Wairarapa meeting. Ronald Derby raced in good form last Saturday to finish second to Royal Escort, and he will be among the best fancied. Village Guy will probably start favourite, in view of his magnificent performance at Timaru a few weeksago. Warpath is a recent winner, and his chance cannot be ignored. In spite of his handicap Royal Escort is capable of finishing in the money. He won in hollow fashion at Ashburton last Saturday. This race is likely to be as interesting as any on the card, and those at the head of affairs at tiie finish may be Vijlage Guy, Ronald Derby, and Royal Escort. 2 p.m.— I'KESIDENT'S' HANDICAP. o£ 100 toVfS.

With Esther and Don Giovanni he is in possession of the brightest prospects of the front division. Olson, on 24 yards, may trot a fine race, and Resound should be capable of a good effort from 48 yards. Real Belle is . such a smart beginner that she will have made up a good deal of her ; handicap before the field is properly i on the way. She is preferred of the back markers. Those likely to be disputing the issue when in line for home are Olson, Real Belle, and Bronte. 2.40 p.m.— ' KEKKRANGU HANDICAP, of 100 sovs. 2min 50sec class. One mile and a quarter.

Reporter gained a good reputation by his winning performance at Addington last month, and with a little luck he would have finished in the money at Oamaru. Chenwood does not always run up to his best, but if he decides to do so here he will prove a serious contender. Smooger may have the best prospects of those further back. Favouritism may be disputed by Lord Leslie, Reporter, and Chenwood.

In the event of her beginning anything like well, she should continue her winning sequence. She showed phenomenal speed at Oamaru to win, after having been apparently hopelessly left in the Stewards' Handicap, her second success of the day. Lilian Bond, Guyziah, and Dollie Derby will have to be considered, but perhaps Guyziah is the most reliable proposition. Ruth Logan has done well lately, and Gold Paper has given indications of returning to the list of winners. There are likely to be several horses well backed in this race, but Goldfield, Guyziah, and Ruth Logan may carry the bulk of investments. -1 p.m.— FAREWELL HANDICAP (in saddle;, of 'JO sovs. Smin 20sec class.
