His Majesty's 'br c Minoru, by Cyllene — Mother Seigel 1 iSignorinetita has followed up her victory in the Derby by annexing the Oaks, a performance which had previously been accomplished on Jwo occasions only, namely, by Eleanor in 1801, and Blink Bonny in 1857. Signorinetta is therefore a filly of quite exceptional excellence, and should she land the St. Leger in September will do wSat has never been dono befotfe, for the Dqrby, ' Oaks, and St. Leger treble has never fallen to any filly. Signorina., the dam of the Oaks winner, was a very brilliaufc two-year-old, and! -won many valuable races for her breeder, Chevalier Ginistrelli. Chaleureux, sire of Signorinetta., had- auseful career on the turf, but at the stud his sorvioes were not highly esteemed, for his fee was only eight guineas. Courtesy did not run as a two-year-old, but is entered! extensively for' all important races this season. The late Lord Falmouth, in conjunction with Matthew Dawson, his trainer, and Fred. Archer, swept tho boardl year after year in the classio evente. Santeve had a modest career as a two-year-old*, her best efforts being a brace of seconds out of seven starts. The two/vear-ol<i form has proved' a will-o'-the-wisp as a guide to this year's, classics, and the only one to. fulfil eatrly promise is Rnodora, winner of the On© Thousand Guiieas, and she has evidently failed) to see 6ut the severe mile and a naif of the Epsom course.
