Four lengths between second and third. Time, Smin ssec. The Grand Prix de Paris, with its stake of 12,000 soys, is the most valuable race, and invariably attracts a huge entry, there being 579 nominations for this year's event. That number is five less than the previous year. Quite a number of English three-year-olds had been nominated, but if any of them started they finished out of a place. The winner, Sardanaple, who is owned by Baron M. de Rothschild, started five times as a two-year-old, and won on three occasions. His successes were in the Prix Yacoulef, Prix de Morny, and Prix de Seine. He was also second in the Prix de la Foret, and third in the Grand Criteriiim. He did not make a good start this season, finishing unplaced behind Nimbus, Isaed 11. and Fidelio in the Prix Boiard. Three v>eeks previously Sardanaple won the French Derby, which race last season was worth £7413. Prestige (sire of Sardanaple) is by Le Pompo from Orguilleux, by Reverend from Oroya, by Bend Or. He has been in recent years a very successful sire, and is described as being a, particularly fine type of horse. Prestige was chosen by Mr. Francis Foy. the New South Wales owner, when in France a few months ago, chosen to' mate with his mares Playaway (a daughter of Carbine, imported to Australia, where she won the Newmarket Handicap, Caulfiold Futurity Stakes, etc.). Lord Ullin's Daughter (Australian Cup), Mine dOr, Charmed Life, and his American-bred purchase by the New Zealand sire Sir Modred. La Farnia (the runner-up in Sunday's race) started three times last season, and scored twice. He won the Prix Sea Sick at MaisOns'Laffitte, the Prix La Rochette Triennial _ Stakes at Chantilly, and was unplaced in the Prix de Morny, won by Sardanaple. Durbar^ fl. earlier in the season won the English Derby, but as he was miplaced in the French Derby, and could only get third in the race under review, the English three-year-olds this season are not as high class as in some previous years. Mr. Duryea, owner of Durbar 11., is a wealthy American who went to France and established a stud farm, when the Betting Restrictions Act was enforced in New York State. He won the Twothousand Guineas with Sweeper 11., in 1912, and twelve races worth £15,000, in 1013., The time put up by Sardanaple (3min ssec) is a record for the race. Baron M. de Rothschild won the race in 1909 with Vedum. Baron E. de Rothschild won it with San Sonci 11. (sire of La Farina) in 1907,^ tho year after Carbine's son (Spearmint) was successful.
