RECORD FOR MANTON
TRAINER'S GREAT: YEAR
Tmf histoiy was made at Kempton Paik (England) on 10th October, for by the success of the Golden Hair colt in the Imperial Pioduco Stakes, J. ("Joe") Lawson, the Man ton trainer, brought his » niii"h for the season to £81,435. lie thus excelled the record established by the lute Geoige Dawson,.« hose hoises won £77,129 in stakes in the season 1889. Lawson has held a tramei s licence tor only four years, though he lias been connected with the famous Manton stable lor 33 years. Alec-Taylor was in coutiol o£ the establishment-till'his letirement four jears ago, and he was then succeeded by Law son, who had been his head mau. laylov BtiU1 Serves' the'Manton interests in an advisory capacity, but he claims none ot tho'credit for tluVyeat's tiiumph. Perhaps the most lemarkable featuie ot Mantou's' achievement ''is. that it has been gained' without the assistance of any of the six richest races of the ycai. lluee of the classics-wont to Beckhampton, which then had a great chance of beating George Dawson's record. On 10th October it was still, possible for Ired Darling to equal it, as he had aheady won £69,633 for his patrons, but tho stable had stiuck an exceedingly bad patch, and its prospects of adding appreciably to its aggiegate during the lemawmg,weeks of the campaign were by no means-bright. •It was fitting that the winnings for the season should have been taken beyond the recoid mark by the Golden Hair colt, who is the year's best two-year-old in England. Up "till 30th October this colt had earned just over. £15,000, and if he. fulfilled expectations'in'the'Middle Park Stakes, run the following week, but the result of which is not yet to hand, he would have passed Sandwich's figures and have become the second largest winner of the year. His sire, Gainsborough, took second place on the list of winning sires, the result of the Imperial Produce Stakes enabling him to pass his son Solaiio. Mr. W. M. G Singer became second on the list of winning owneis. The Golden Han colt co^t .1000 fcu.uafis at Doncaster, N.
