AGA KHAN'S GOOD YEAR

■ Statistics for the 1932 xacing season in England, which closed at Manchester on 27th November, are now available, and show the Aga Khan to be the principal winning owner -with stakes 'to.the 'value of £57,778 ss^ and Frank Butters the leading trainer with 62 wins worth £72,436 15s. { The _ compiler of the information in Sporting Life" remarks that, apirt from the .racing itself, piquancy was added in' the later stages by reason of the efforts of Gordon Richards to ride 200 winners and of M. D. Peacock to top the 'century as trainer. . While Peacock managed to reach the desired total, Richards fell short of the double century^ though.in reaching 190 he beat'his own personal' record: and also that of 187, the previous best of the present century, registered by Frank Wodtton in 1911;, .' / '};;".
