In May last Herringbone and Ribbon had fought out the finish of the One Thousand Guineas, the honours going to the former by a neck. Straight Deal won the Derby on June 18, but the two fillies proved capable of beating the top colt when they met in the St. Leger, the longest of the five classics. As Ribbon also filled second place to Why Hurry in the New Oaks Stakes it has been an unlucky season for her 'owner. During the period 1910 to date Lord Derby has won the St. Leger on six occasions, has been second five times,- and third once.— "Binocular."
