The calling of a cross-country-rider has more than a fair.share of ups and downs. That this is so has been brought home to the New Zealander, L Hagerty, who, after a run of successes, has come to grief three times out of his four, last mounts in -Melbourne. Hagerty was not seriously injured, but he received .more than one man's share of cuts, bruises, and strains. A few months ago, when he won two races in Sydney, it was thought that Don Solvo, by Earlston-Solution, might develop into a good Derby colt. «. reeent 'y beaten in a race in Melbourne, and the latest opinion concerning him is that he is unlikely to shine over a distance, though he may take a high place as a sprinter. Thero has been a singular disqualification in America. After a filly named Loretta Dwyer had finished first by three-lengths, the stewards' disqualified her because she had not carried her weight to the post"—which was a violation of the racing rules.' Mary Warren, .who finished second, was awarded the race. Loretta, Dwyer's disqualification was purely, on. technical grounds. She actually carried her weight from the start, which was made at the six furlong pole, to the winning-post. 'In this she filled all requirements and con'ditions of the race in so far as the race

itself was concerned; but she lost because she failed to carry her jockey to the post—a violation of the racing rules, but not a violation of tho conditions of the race, which called for all entrants to carry the'weight assigned over the'sixfurlong course. " B. Deeley has been engaged to ride Passadena and Ngarua in their Marion engagements. If he can get down to, the respective weights in time,_ A. Oliver will ride Parifo'rm, Bst. 41b.,' and Portraiture, Bst. 51b'. Latest advices from Sydney stat« that Valhalla had been giving trouble with one of his knees, but the rest of E.. J. Mason's team were doing well.
