Secretary was scratched for the Grand National at 3 p.m. yesterday. Ahua worked yesterday morning three times round at a good pace and was much admired. Daddy Longlega went twice round on the tan. Louis did a nice two rounds, sweating freely. Mouteagle, after once round the tan, pulling hard, took the post-and rails faultlessly, though a trifle sore. Orangeman is located at Yaldhurst and looks very fine ; he is working privately. At the annual meeting of the Cromwell Jockey Club the question of forming a union of clubs other than metropolitan came up, The president of the Cromwell Club had written to the Dunodin Jockey Club pointing out that fuuds would permit of only L 450 or LSOO being given in added money on the three days' racing—the annual spring and summer meetings—held, and suggesting that in justice to old established clubs the D.J.C. should pass a by-law reserving the right to pass or veto programmes irrespective of the money added, Mr Sydney James replied regretting that it was out of the power of the club to comply with the request. Mr Cowan, after the correspondence had been read, said the only way he could see out of the difficulty, if the D. J.C. refused to reconsider its decision, was to form a union of all clubs other than metropolitan clubs. The right could be reserved to disqualify all horses running at meetings of metropolitan olubs, and he had no doubt the union would bo sufficiently strong to bring the metropolitan clubs to their senses. After some discussion a committee was appointed to forward a protest to the D.J.C. against the attitude taken up, and also to frame and print a circular embodying the suggestion of Mr Cowan relative to a union of clubs. It was understood, if the D.J.C. and other metropolitan clubs gave way in their attitude to old-estab-lished clubs, the necessity for the latter clause of the motion would no longer exist.
