LORD FALMOUTH'S SUCCESSES. (Pall Mall Gazette.)
The York meeting was little more than a benefit for Lord Falmouth, who was so 1 fortunate.'as to secure all the five races for which his horses competed, winning the Yorkshire Oaks' and tHe Great Yorkshire States with Lady Golightly, the York Cup with Skylark, and the Lonsdale Plate with Kitty Sprightly, while Redwing took half the Convivial Stakes', after a dead heat with Mr. Cartwrightf st Fair Lyonese. The'valueof the^e flVe races was a trifle over £1700'; and to show how successful Lord Falmouth has been this season, it may be mentioned!that He has alreaily won no,less lhan -< twenty' thousand, • -nine hundred ¦ and. flighty ron,e, pounds-.in moqey, and the Gold Vase at Ascot, and there is every reason tw ianticipating that' this total will' be nearly doubled by'the time the Doncasterand three jNewjnarket Autumn Meetings are.over. This sum has been earned by eight horses —a four-year-old, four three-year-olds, and three two-year-olds. Skylark has won five races, including the Gold Vase at Ascot ,and the York Cup, worth" £1497 10s, and has received £200 for running second in the Ascot Cup, while of the 'three-year-olds Silvio has won the Epsom' add Ascot Derbies (£7125); Lady Golightly the Column Stakes at Newmarket, two Sweepstakes at Goodwood, the Yorkshire Oaks, and tl|e .Great Yorkshire 3tak.es (£2100); King Clovis a Post Sweepstakes and the Newmarket Stakes (£600); and Kitty Sprightly the Lons•'diile Plate at York(£3oo). Thethree two-year-old winners all possess an unbeaten certificate, Redwing, having, secured the Hurstboume Stakes' at Stockbridge, the .Exeter Stakes at Newmarket, the Astley Stakes at Lewis, and half of the Convivial at York (£4262 10s); Jannette the Ascot Triennial Stakes and the Richmond Stakes at .Goodwood (£2596); and .ChiMeric'the Chesterfield' Stakes at Newmarket a'nd'the Pridce of Walestf Stakes at Goodwood (£2300). These'results' are-all'tnd niore re'markabiey Seeing that Lord Falmouth -neter 'has more than sixteen horses in training, and -that four or five of his two-year-olds have not ;iyet run- ¦ ¦ . .
