pects in. the classic race. Those who were due to race are Automne, Anklet, King"s Speech, Lomint, Hyde Park, Cocoanut, King Lv, Ripon Abbey,; Aberfeldy, Le Choncas, Danae, Mimetic, Star Stranger, Piet, and Merry Damon. This would suggest that a good sized field will be seen out-'on Monday.
Mr. J. B. Gargurevich, assistant secretary of the V.A.T.C., has tendered his resignation on the committee of the club, which has accepted it. He had been associated with the club for .35 years, and it. was generally understood that when Mr. T. A. Tabart was appointed to succeed Mr. J. W. Moule
iinteiids to use tho Martagon horse for some of his own imported mare 3 this season. Among those who will bo mated with Martian arc Sweet-Charity (Diadumenos —Maundy Thursday), who has a colt to Paladin; Strona (Stornoway— Dark Blue), in foal to Paladin; Vernal (Black Jester —Verne), in foal to Martian ; Cymene (Cylgad—Hippocrene), in foal to Paladin; also Polymnia (Littleton—Missette) and Torquato (Sir Archibald—Aminta), both of whom missed last season, Polymnia for the first time, after having a succession of six colts to: Martian.

Early three-year-old winners are frequently worth following through the season. Among those who have been successful so far include Money Order, John Bradbury, Jarretiere, and PaPer Rose in the South Island, and Father O'Flynn,' Gold Box,. First Acre, and Bisox -in' th's North Island., It is -interesting to find that four of the eight named are by Paper Money. ■
Even at this stage a great race can be prophesied with some certainty tor
buying them if you have a big enough--commission; but here was' a case _in which the Beckhampton trainer was instructed by cable from China to buy the best 'yearling at. Doncaster in 1923—and ho had to buy only one.' The upahot of this was that he" bought Manna, whom he has also trained to win the Two Thousand Guineas and the Derby.' No doubt inspired by the antics of Heroic, and in a lesser degree Manfred, at the barrier, Australian sporting writiers are urging the need of more drastic regulations for unruly horses at the starting-post. 1 It is possible that the New Zealand lead will be followed in the introduction of a schooling list. At a meeting of the committee of the South Australian Jockey Club, i(i waa resolved that Mr. T. P. Wigley be given one month's notice that his services as stipendiary steward are to be dispensed with.- The chairman of the S.A.J.C., Mr. W. B. Carr, when interviewed, stated that the committee 'held an inquiry into a complaint lodged by Mr. M. J. Hogan, chairman of the stipendiary stewards, against Mr. Wigley, respecting hi 3 conduct towards Mr. Hogan in the stewards' room at TattersalTs Meeting at Victoria Park on sth September, with the result "stated. It is understood that this is the first occasion that a stipendiary steward has been dismissed. ■ ;
