THE SEASON- ENDS
This week the flat racing season in FnV March when the new season wf] I i, opened on the Carholme, The " a ,on ■ _ CONSISTENT WINNERS. mm moderate horses travelling all over Eni and m search of prize-money Lord 11----mmmm ana it would be safe to say that Lord Aster 8 winning average is, perhaps, higher than, that of any other owner in En C umd who races on a large scale. The \^ Khan has not had his usual success th s season and several of his high-priced yea ings have proved of little account J| e ■ own breeding, but perhaps ho will .fill StSV° t b;' y t^ert of the yearling btanley Wootton is another who has not all tW* f? °d fOrtT e this seaso "' b«t for all that his own horses have won him 43 races valued at more than £12.000, and he has trained more winners than a v other trainer ]n England, which in itself is something to be proud of. Wootton co.ntm.ues *». be a power to be reckoned with m selling races, and, as he is sail to bet really well, no^oubt he finds that class of race extremely paj'able
a . SfILL IN THE LEAD. Alec Taylor has for many years been fiff- d°y«i of English trainers, and it™ fitting that he should head the winning list this season, as he intends to retire from active training, although he will continue to manage" Manton. When the last mad left England he was slightly ahead of F. Butters, who has done remarkably well. Butters was appointed trainer to .Lord Derby at the beginning of the season, and he will be able to look back with •pride at his record at his first year with the Stanley House stable. K. Darling, who.has many rich patrons, has again won many important races,.but Coronach's fall from grace and his defeats by Colorado must have been disheartening. Coronach commenced the season regarded by many Jinghshmen as "the horse of a century." At the close of the season he was rated as simply a good horse. Colorado made extraordinary improvement as the season advanced, and the manner in which he won the Eclipse Stakes stamped him as Phalaris's best son. When Mr. Frank Curzon died Call Boy's racing career closed also, and although it is not known whether he will race again next season, it would have been interesting to see how he would have fared with Book Law in the Leger. Book Law, who has won six races* is undoubtedly a staying filly of great class, and as she is by a brother to Saltash from a sister to Magpie, Australians are interested in, her. excellence. Her sire, Buchan.has shred several other good stayers. Hurry
On has again done, well, as has Phalavis and Pommern. Of the jockeys, Richards is easily first. He has a remarkable perCiCn^ ee ', and his w'»ning mounts are double those won .by any other rider. Elliott, Weston, Fox, and Smirke have done well, Tint Donoghuo is not riding as frequently as of yore. It is a ease of youth will be served.
