OTAGO HUNT CLUjJ RACES. First Day—Friday. Lovely weather favored the opening day of the race meeting held annually by tho Bunedin Jockey Club under the title of the Otago Hunt Club races. The attendance was very good. The new totalisator arrangements, so far as they are yet carried out, were found to be a great convenience. The following were the results of the racing up to the time of our going to press : MAIDEN HUNTERS' STEEPLE rf 40 sova second horso 6 sovs from tho stakes Weight for age. For all qualified huaterd.

Taihoa and Maxwelton sailed away to the front at the fall of the flag, and held tho kad alternately for tho first six furlongs, when Bugler and Tramp ran up into the van »nd approached the first log fence of the stand double side by side. Bugler got over safely, but Tramp refused, and was thenceforthout of the race. Magnet followed euit, while Cuddy struck and fell heavily, turning a complete somersault and giving his rider a severe shaking. Meanwhile, Bugler and Maxwelton were going on in front, but at a mile and a-half tho former was supplanted by Oarryowen, who, in company with Maxwelton, raced away from the rest and had the finish all to themselves. Once over the last hurdle Maxwelton drew away as he liked, but hia owner must have losthia head, for instead of keeping his horse going, he allowed Mr Cox to bring Garryowen with a final run and just pip him on tho post. Bugler was a fair third. Time, 4rain sG.\sec. Dividends: Inside, L 3 Cs; outside, L 5 2s.

After two or three breaks-away the signal was given to a rather straggling start, of which Occident and Little Shamrock had the best, but as tho field passed the stand and had settled down into their places. Little Shamrock, St. Malo, and Quibble were the leading files, with St. James at their heels and the rest close up. Going round to the back of the course, St. Malo and Little Shamrock placed a clear gap between themselves and Quibble, at whose girths lay Occident, with Wolverine going on fifth. A quarter of a milo from home Little Shamrock fell away, and Wolverine, coming with a wet sail, looked momentarily all over a winner; but he could never get up to St. Malo, on whom M'Grath was sitting still, and who came home a very easy winner by a clear three-quarters of a length. A desperate fight for second place took place between St. James, Wolverine, and Quibble, the three sweeping past the post almost head and head, but the judge's award was as above. Time, 2min lSJsec, Dividends: Inside, L37s; outside, L 3 4s 6d. _ St. Malo's jockey wore a crape band on his arm out of respect to tho memory of the late Hon. W. Robinson.
