DUNEDIN MAY RACES. Second Day.—Saturday. The weather at the commencement of proceedings to-day was even finer than was the case yesterday, and with more promise of lasting. The attendance was again very good." The results of the racing up to the time of our going to pre 33 were as follows: SELLING HURDLE RACE, r.f 70 sovc Oae mile and a-ho'f.

Ballautyne's b!k g Eicbus, agtd, dit .. 0 Betting : Even on Sockburn, 3 to 1 bar one. Secretary and Erebus went away in front, with Sockburn and Trapper going on next, Wildboy and Tenakoe last. At four furlongs Erebus and Secretary were still in the van, but as they went along Sockburn ran up to the front temporarily, then falling back on almost even terms with the two others, Tenakoe and Trapper meanwhile going on fourth and fifth. Approaching the home turn Sockburn's head just showed in front, but on either side of him were Secretary and Erebus, with Tenakoe and Trapper coming up very fast, and a rattling finish after the last hurdle was negotiated resulted, ending in a win for Sockburn by only half a length from Secretary, who beat Tenakoe for second place by only a head. Time, 3min 3!f"ec. Of L 591 in the totalisators, L 275 was on Sockburn. Dividends : Inside, LI 18s 6.'.; outside, LI 18j 6d.

Henderson's ch hj Le Temps, 4 yrs, 6st 510 (Thomas) 0 Hetting : 2 to 1 against Apropos, 3 to 1 St Clair, 4 to 1 Ruby. From a capital start Aprea Moi darted off with the lead, followed by Forget-me-J, r ot, St. Clair, and Ixion in close order, and the rest all handy. By the time they had reached the stand enclosures Apres Moi had taken a strong lead of Apropos, Forget-me-Not, and St. Clair, who were by this time her nearest attendants, and as they went round to the far side of the course Mr Turnbull's filly was fully six lengths clear of anything in the race. Approaching the half-mile post, however, St. Clair drew out from the position he had held in the van of \he ruck, and, sailing away at a rare pace, caught and passed Apres Moi in a few strides, and evidently had the race at his mercy, the pair being far away in front of the field. Ruby came with a good run in the latter P art ?* tne race i Dut could never catch St. Clair, who won from him, hard held, by four lengths. Mon Loup was a poor third. Time, 2min 14sec.

Betting: f> to 2 Golden Crest, 7 to 2 Moss Rose, 5 to 1 any other, A very bad start gave Moss Rose a b'g advantage, while Alcinous was left a long way behind, with the rest of the field spread out between theae horses in straggling order. Moss Rose, as a matter of fact, led from start to finish, although Louis was at her heels for a good distance, while St. James came with a great rush towards the finish. Mr M'Lean's horse wou'd probably have won if he had got off well, but, as it was, could do no more than make a good second. Golden Crest was third, a bare nose in front of Dispute.
