Mr Martin Taylor was a good winner over tho Moonte Valley Cup, having backed his dog through all the individual courses. In the final round between the New South Wales and tho New Zealand dogs, Faugh-a-Ballagh won a good victory, and landed the stake for his owner, Mr John O’Halloran, of txoulbnrn, New South Wales, The winning dog, a second-season performer, had to fight his way through the stake, for he beat in succession performers like Phillina, Rhodanthe 11., Red Hind 11., Hazelnut, Livingstone, Rufford, and Bridegroom 11. Faugh-a-Ballagh’s career last season consisted in a run for the Rosehill Derby, when he went down in his first trial. He afterwards divided with three others the Waterloo Cup at Rosehill. Except for these runs, he has never appeared In public, and has very rarely killed a hare. His owner, Mr John O’Halloran, of Gonlbnrn, New South Wales, is an enthusiastic and consistent supporter of coursing. Bridegroom 11., the runner-up, was bred by and Is the property of Mr Martin Taylor, of Christchurch, and he, like Fangh-a-Ballagh, is a second-season performer. His only essay last season was in the New Zealand Waterloo Cup, In which he got into the last four. We also learn from a private letter received in Dunedin that on the last day of tho meeting Fawnhopo won the Carrington Stakes (for sixteen dogs beaten in the Valley Cup), and for wmch Messrs Taylor and W. W. Finnllson had backed her for every course. In the second round of tho Carrington Stakes the Auckland representative, Sailor Boy, was put down by Master Fred, tho latter being next beaten by Fawnhope. Stirling, by Stirlad—Patience, after being defeated in the Cup and Loch Stakes, was sold by Mr Finnlison for six guineas, It was Silvermere, and not Silver Mark, that was nominated for the Melbourne Cup. The New Zealand entries for the Champion Stakes are Mr Mitchelson’s Fabulous ird Corunna, Mr Stead’s Maxim, Hon. W. Robinson’s Chain Shot and Morrie England, Mr Butler’s Manton, and Mr Burke’s Cairassier.
