Bloodstock Sale % A sale of bloodstock was held by Pyne, Gould, Guinness, Ltd., and Wright, Stephenson and Co., Ltd., yesterday in the presence of a large gathering of ringsiders. The catalogue •was restricted in numbers, but there was a good demand for most Of the offerings, and satisfactory prices were realised.

On behalf of Dr. M. G. Louisson, Invoice was. disposed of for 70 guineas to Mr T. Matthews, of Chatto Creek, Otago, and the two-year-old Improvident by Defoe,, after being started at 100 guineas, was purchased by C. C. McCarthy for 240 guineas, and will continue to be trained at Riccarton. Private Bunsby, a three-year-old gelding by Captain Bunsby from Toiling Tessie, fell to the bid of Mr W. J. Doyle at 15* guineas. Improvident cost Dr. Louissop 1?0-guineas, as a yearling, and Private Bunsby cost 130 guineas. Love Affair, a good-looking filly by Philamcr from the Martian mare Love in the Misjt,' appeared to be very reasonably sold for 17J guineas, the buyer being. Mr N. Davis, of Hornby. Lazybones Sold Mr G. R. Macdonald, of Lowry Hills, submitted three horses. The two-year-old Gaoler, by Lord Warden from the speedy Eulalie, was secured by Mr J. Sang, of Melbourne, for 40 guineas, and Lazybones, after opening at 150 guineas, was bought at 300 guineas by Mr R. J. E. Smith, of Central Otago, owner of Rebel Mate, and he will join that gelding in F. Trilford’s stable at Washdyke. Guinea Fowl, winner of the John Grigg Stakes, was purchased by Mr J, L. Stafford, of Christchurch, for 30 guineas. .Valuable Blood

The two-year-old filly Submit, by Beau Pere from imported Timid, was •Iso offered by Mr Macdonald. She met with an accident when being first handled, and although she is unlikely to be able to race, she should be a valuable brood mare. Bidding went to 140 guineas, but she was passed in at this figure. Submit cost Mr Macdonald 325 guineas as a yearling at Trentham, and unless she is sold at the reserve placed upon her, she will probably be kept by her owner for breeding purposes. A Promising Galloper

On account of the estate of Mr C. Loulsson, late of Palmerston North, the three-year-old Merry March, by Nightmarch from Kilmlss, who ran fourth la his race at Riccarton on Tuesday, was sold to Mr J. I* Smith, of Christchurch, for 75 guineas, and will in future be trained by ,A- s - Ellis, at Riccarton.

Reasonable Price The broo,d mare Kilris, formerly Owned and raced by Mr W. Baxter, was sold for 40 guineas to Mr L. M. Denton, of Lyttelton, She had a filly foal by Valkyrlan at foot, and is considered safely in foal to Man’s Pal, so •he appeared to be good buying at that figure. Passed In The two-year-old Dunstan. winner ef the Dunedin Champagne Stakes in February last, was offered by Mr J. Beattie, of Lauder, but the 325 guineas offered was under the reserve. Other Sales

The steeplechaser Nightcap, offered by Mr E. B. Newton, of Ashburton, was sold for 23 guineas, and will accompany Gaoler to Melbourne.

A three-year-old filly Lady Aske, by Philamor from Nightdew, and in foal to Nightmarch. was sold by Mr E. Gates, of Amberley, to Mr H. Lang, of Amberlcy, for 50 guineas, and Mr W. Baxter solo a yearling colt by Pink Loat from Kilris for 25 guineas to Mr F. Campbell, of Christchurch.

losing Dash Golden Miller’s 11 years are undoubtedly telling upon him.' Last month he was expected to win again we Cheltenham Gold Cup, a three-and-a-quarter miles steeplechase, but, Jhough he ran well, he was beaten into second place by Morse Code, a bine-year-old gelding by The Pilot. As Morse Code, who is trained by I. Anthony, carried the same weight as Golden Miller, he must be good, even “ough the latter’s dash of his earlier Tears is now missing. to Deceive

THIRD DAY AT

RANDWICK Champagne Stakes To Pandava OLD ROWLEY’S VICTORY IN CUMBERLAND (UNITED PRESS ASSOCIATION— COPTIUOHT.) (Received April 20, 11.55 p.m.) SYDNEY, April 20. The weather for the third day of the Australian Jockey Club meeting at Randwlck to-day was a mixture of sunshine, wind, and rain. The last two races were run in heavy showers. Ajax, as expected, made hacks of his opponents in the All-Aged Plate. His mile time, Imln 35Jsec, equalled his own Australian and New Zealand record. Ajax has now won £IB,OOO. Pandava and Nuffield staged another duel in the Champagne Stakes, on this occasion Pandava winning because Nuffield allowed his rival to get too far In front.

Old Rowley won the Cumberland Plate all the way, and thus atoned for his recent disappointments. Country Party would have been most unlucky to lose the Coogee Handicap, in which he received several checks. Bristol, although badly placed in the City Handicap, came from the clouds to wlh in the last stride from Sal Volatile. The jockey, H. Badger, was suspended for a month for careless riding In the Cumberland Plate. The attendance to-day was 24,000, compared with 20,000 In 1937. Results:— AUTUMN HURDLE RACE, Of £SOO. About two miles and three furlongs. KEEWONG 9-12 .. Brace 1 Spearbine 11-l .. .. Shell 2 Capaneus 10-5 .. Malcolm 3 There were six starters. The early leaders were Kllfern and Koewong, who ran down, two hurdles but were not hurt. Keewong continued In the lead and withstood a hot challenge by Spearbine In the run home, winning by half a length. Capaneus was four lengths away third. Then came Asolando. Time, 4mln 21Jsec. COOGEE HANDICAP, Of £7OO. One mile and one furlong. COUNTRY PARTY 7-12 .. Bartle 1 Speardale 8-2 .. .. Voitro 2 Barak 7-5 car. 7-7 .. Hickey 3 There were 12 starters, including Haut Monde. Turning for home Speardale was IwidIng from Lolorua, with Country Party coming up smartly from the rear. With a furlong to go Country Party was on terms with Speardale. The former finished better and won by a length, with a similar distance to Barak. Then came St. Constant, with Haut Monde seventh. Time, Imln Sljsec. ALL-AGED PLATE, Of £I3OO. One mile. AJAX 8-3 .. Badger 1 Mohican 9-1 .. .. Munro 2 King's Head 9-1 .. .. Bartle 3 There were 10 starters. Ajax set a merry pace and was never headed. King’s Head and Mohican attempted to close on the champion, particularly Mohican, who got within two lengths on entering the straight, but Ajax again drew away and won easily by a length and a half, with King's Head three lengths back. Evening Mist was a poor fourth. El Golca was last. Time, Imln 35Jsec. equals the Australian and New Zealand record. CHAMPAGNE STAKES, Of £2900. Six furlongs. Mr "F. Smlthden’s" hr c PANDAVA by Brazen (Imp.)— Ring Again 9-1 McCarten 1 C. B. Kellow’s ch c Nuffield by Heroic —Belle Gallante 0-1 .. Badger 2 Messrs “F.N.F. Lansdovjn” and P. B. Quinlan's b c Fort Regal by Melfort (Imp.)— Regal Fleur 8-5 Voltre 3 There were 10 starters.

Pandava was always placed at the head of the held. His rival, Nuffield, was well to the rear until nearing the home turn, where he moved briskly, passing Gay Romance, Valhalla, and Destiny Bay. Nuffield literally flew after Pandava, who, however, had too much In reserve, and won by a length,, with Fort Regal, who came with a late fast run, two lengths away third. Early Bird was fourth. Time, Imln llsec.

BRONTE HANDICAP,Of £7OO. One mile. BEECHWOOD 9-3 .. Badger X Herardc 8-8 .. Shean 2 Edible 7-0 .. Harvey 3

There were 12 starters, including Kinsfolk.

The pacemakers were Herardc, Aclnom, Beechwood, and Kinsfolk. With a furlong to go Beechwood went past Herarde and won by half a length. Edible came from a long way back to gain a moderate third. Mark Antony, who was expected to do well, finished In the ruck. Kinsfolk was fourth. Time, Xmin 37sec.

CUMBERLAND PLATE, Of £1250. One mile and threequarters. OLD ROWLEY 8-11 .. Badger I

Allunga. 9-3 .. Bartlc 2 El Senorita 9-1 .. Munro 3 Silver Standard and Genetout were scratched.

The leading division at the mile comprised Tapestry, Old Rowley, El Senorita, and Northwind. with Allunga well behind. Tapestry weakened at the turn, where Old Rowley was In charge from El Senorita and Allunga. The latter came through the field and made a stirring battle with Old Rowley, who lasted long enough to wtn by a. head. El Senorita was threequarters of a length away third. Northwind was fourth. Time, 3mln 21sec.

CITY HANDICAP, Of £7OO. One mile and a half. BRISTOL . 7-7 .. Bartle 1 Sal Volatile 7-2 .. Neale 2 Silver Standard 8-8 .. Munro 3

There wore 12 starters, including Sir Regent, Improvement, and Viceroy. This race was notable for many changes, but Soft Step, Sal Volatile, Billy Boy. Gay Knight, and Improvement were always well placed. Bristol, who seemed to be out of the race, shot past the field at the distance, and won by half a length, with three-quarters of a length between second and third. Improvement was fourth. Sir Regent was seventh. Time, 2min 32Jsec.
