As a two-year-old Bruleur did not siwrt silk, but he struck winning form early this season, and though lo did not compete in tho French Gum-., eas (won by Dasor) he had scored over 12 furlongs in the Prix des Lilas at Paris on May 14. Opott had won as a two-year-old, but did not start in the French Guineas last month. Ecouen had also won last season, but he disappointed his (supporters in the French Guineas. A fortnight previously he scored an easy victory in the Pris <les Cars, but in the Guineas he was comfortably beaten by • Bgor.J \ THE DERBY FINISH. CAMERA V. JUDGE'S BOX. Telegraph—Press Association— Copyright London, Juno 29. Mr. Moorhouse, ono of tho editors of iho "Blood Stock Breeders' Review," contends that photographs of the Epsom Derby race show that Day Comet finished third or fourth, and should, after CragaEour'a disqualification, have been placed second or third. He attributes the judge's Saistako to CragtmoUr, Aboyeur, and Lou.Vois screening Day Comet. ' NOTES AND COMMENTS. IBi Gumcoe.l .The Gisborne Racing Club's meeting takes place on' Thursday and Friday. Acceptances for the first .day's events at the Wellington Racing Club's winter Ineetinf close on Monday next. •- Delegate has been scratched for all engagements at tho Wellington meeting, Jvhich commences to-morrow fortnight. It is understood that Bercola' will not • be a starter at Trentham, but will be re'6erJ,'®s or f lO Grand National Hurdles and Steeplechase at Riccarton. . M. E. de ■ Saint-Alary,. who won? the Grand Prirc de Paris, 'with Bruleur, on DUnday, had licit previously owned a wintier of the big three-year-old race. It is said that C. Price is again applying to the Canterbury Jockey Club for the remission of the remainder of his sentence of disqualification. The' application will coma before the C.J.C. to-day. If 11. Gray obtains his license by the opening of th? new season, he will accept a retainer to do riding for Messrs. Stead, for whom It. O'Donnell has twelve horses in training at Tnldhurst. A Sydney exchange says: "Although R. SJ. Mason did not bring any yearlings from New Zealand with him, he now has one in hand. This is McltchikofE (Menschikolf—Lady Melton), who cost Mr. G. D. Greenwood 200gns. at tho autumn Bales, and until a few days ago was in J. ißurton's charge." The Eclipse Stakes, tho first of the English "ten thousand pounders," will be run . lat San clown Park on July 18. At the Aspendale (Vic.) meeting on flame; 18, three New Zealand-bred ~horses t-Captain Jingle; Mattva'nd'GaeliC7-M>ij-.tested ,the Jumpers' Fiat Race. None of them'- finished in a place, though the first-named was well up in-the early Stages of tho race. .. v., ; ....... • The ex-Wellington horseman, H. R. JCairns, who has been under disqualification in Victoria for the past 12 months, ' ihas again been licensed by tho Victoria ■Racing Club, and will probably have the mount on Wimmera in tho Grand National Hurdles at Flcmington on Satur-' day. Wimmera is one of the short-priced division. This is consequent on the fact that his stable companion, Ballista, hfts dropped out of tho race. Another New JJealander, Julian, is second favourite. A Bill which has for its object the prevention of "docking" of horses came before the British House of Commons re,:ently, and during the discussion of its .blauses Colonel J. E. B. Seely, Secretary ef State for War, announced that the iWar Office had issued a notification that tit would not purchase docked horses, after tho expiration of three years from now. The "Referee" states that an Australian .visitor from India heartily agrees with this decision. "With flies twice as bad in India as in Australia during the summer months, tho 'docking" of horses,used in that country, is absolute cruelty," is ■his verdicit. Geo. Stern rode Bruleur when the colt won in Paris on May 14, but the crack horseman nmy not have had the mount an tho Grand Prix as Ecouen was his mount in the Guineas, and he may havo pngagod to rido Ecouen on Sunday. Royal Silver, by Royal Artillery—Silver, ■won the Minook two-year-old handicap at Caulfield on June 21. Dagor. would not bo a starter in the Grand Prix de Paris last Sunday. Hp ■was struck out of that race prior to his victory in tho Guineas last month. The crack two-year-old, Berragoon, by Multiform, has again commenced training at Randwick in view of his A.J.C. .Derby engagement. Berragoon was raced Tather much for a big, overgrown two-year-old, and, in some quarters the opinion is held that ho will not "come back." Owing to his victory in the Toolamtool Hurdles at Caulfield, the Merriwee gelding, Julian, will now have to carry a 71b. penalty in the Grand National Hurdles at Flemington. ' This makes his weight lOst. In view of the statement of the jockey, iWhalley, that Tracery would havo won the Ascot Gold Cup but for tho interference of tho spectator (Hewitt), it is interesting to note that Tracery won the Burwell Plate, beating Stedfast, at Newmarket fast month. An account of tho Taco is to hand by last night's mail. The London "Sportsman" says: "The meeting" of Stedfast and Tracery provided a most interesting race, and partisanship ran high. Tracery had not run since winning the St.-leger, whilo Stedfast had already been, seen out this season, when ho gavo on immense limount of weight and a decisive beating to horses who aro capable tof winning good races. One had almost as many friends as tho other, though Stedfast was supported at the shorter price. Tho others were practically ignored, though on tho chance of a turnup, such as occurred at-Newbury, some gavo support to the three-year-old, Aldcgond. Tho start took place out of sight, arid when they came into view Coora was showing the way to Tracery, witli Stedfast creeping up next the rails. The latter pair soon came away, though Saxby, on tho outsider, was seen to bo drawing up, and for a moment a surprise seemed possible, whereupon Whalley shook up Tracery, who scored \cleverly, while Jackdaw succeeded in beating Stedfast for second honours." I,a Camargo (Childwick—Belle et Bonne), tho famous French mare, who won over ,£IO,OOO in France, including the French Oaks, the Ono Thousand Guineas, tho Prix du Cadrnn, Grand Prix do Baden, and the Prix du Conseif Municipal (twice), and who had been since last tfeptomber under tho care of Mr. W. F. Smith, the veterinary surgeon at Newmarket, had to bo destroyed last month (says an English exchaugo). She was unfortunately covered by Roquelauro when hoavy in foal to Bavardo, resulting in the double loss of a colt-foal to Bayardo and tho mare. La Camargo was the property of Lady James Douglas. Aboyeur, who won tho Derby last month, is not engaged in tho remaining classic, but Louvoij, winner of the Two Thousand and runnor-up in theDerby, stands his ground, and, were he to win the St. Leger, it would mean that 'the whole of this season's classics would have been carried off by representatives of the No. (1) family.
