SPORTING INTELLIGENCE.

At the Titnaru athletic sports last week, H. M. Reeves won the quarter of a mile championship in fifty-two seconds, which beats the record by a second. The second man (Morrison) finished twelve yards behind him.

The Waterloo Cup coursing meeting has been fixed to be held at the Forbury ground on June 27, 28, and 29. This stake will be open to sixty-four dogs of all ages, at a nomination fee of L 8 each. The fee used to be Ll2 10s, but at the suggestion of several intending nominators it has been reduced to the figure stated. Wattie Clifford, on his return to Auckland, told a reporter that Lochiel was very sore after each race he ran at Randwick, He says that New Zealand horsemen have a lot to contend against in Sydney in the way of prejudice, but so far as Melbourne is concerned it is entirely different. In Sydney, newspapers, starters, jockeys, and everybody else seem to work against anyone hailing from Maoriland. Clifford further said that Manton had been put in J. Monaghan’s hands by Mr P. Butler to be trained for next spring. The two colts that the Hon, J. White is to run in England next year arrived at Randwick the day Clifford left. He was greatly enamored with them, and says they look like two fine carriage horses in size. He hears that D. Boose, the well-known Australian horseman, is going to ride the colts, and he accompanies them Home.

The acceptances for our May races are exceedingly good, showing an increase over last year’s in nearly every race, as will be seen by the following comparative table of figures
