An Auckland telegram states that the Auckland Racing Club propose to give L 6.990 away in added money at their four meetings next season, This is an increase of L 430 upon last year’s amount. The Auckland Cup remains at 500 sovs, but the Racing Club Handicap and Great Northern Steeplechase have each been increased to 300 sovs. The Hon. E. Mitchelson was elected president, Mr A. K. Taylor vicepresident, Mr J. O. Evett handicapper, Mr James Kirkwood judge, and Mr J. S. Buckland starter: A case of interest to racing men has been decided by the Auckland Resident Magistrate, Dr Giles. Some time since the horse Whalebone started for a race in Auckland, but before he could start the owners (Perry and another) had to pay Mr Percival, the secretary of the Auckland Racing Club, certain money owed by Chadwick, the previous owner of the horse. Mr Perry had given a cheque and had stopped payment of it, as he disputed the right of the club to claim the money from him and his partner. Mr Percival sued for the amount represented by the cheque, and judgment was given in his favor.
