SPORTING INTELLIGENCE.

Of AGO HUNT CLUB RACES. Second Day.— (Concluded). Saturday's races were spun out to an inordinate length, it being more than an hour and a half later than the appointed time before the last event was run off. The racing, however, was good, the contest for the Consolation Handicap in particular. In that raco Poole took Waitangi to the front as quickly as possible, and very pluckily driving hirn along at a rare pace just mauaged to steal home first from Erebus and Maxweltou. The sum of L 8.607 was passed through the totalisators by Messrs Mason and Roberts, which made a total of L 6.785 for the whole meeting. Tho experience of the two days' working of the totalieator under the new system shows that the arrangements are a very great convenience to investors, all crush being obviated ; still, the fact that the total is not shown simultaneously with every fresh investment is a cause for dissatisfaction, and it is to be hoped that some means or other for removing this will be found. Mr Dowse's handicapping was, as usual, excellent; while Mr Driver made only one bad start during the gathering. The following concludes our report:— : TROTTING HANDICAP, of 35 sovs; 6ccond horse 3 Bovs, third horse 2 sors from the stakes. Two miles. Mr J. Crossan's b g Informer, aired. 40iee (W.

The other starters were Lyndhurst, Steel Arrow, Leichardt, Pet Girl, Laraond, Charcoal, Monte Christo, Pirate, Golden Crown, Locksley, Bustler, Sorella, Lady Kingsborough, Lapstone, Rosierucian, and Colonel. Betting: 3to 1 against Lamond, 4 to 1 Ellerdale, 6 to 1 Bustler, 10 to 1 Touchstone, 12 to 1 Minstrel Boy. A good start was effected, and when fairly on her legs Steel Arrow's colors were to the fore, with Pet Girl, Colonel, Lady Kingsborough, and Golden Crown in close attendance. As they swept past the stand, Golden Crown had supplanted Steel Arrow, and the positions remained unchanged until the onemile post was passed, when Leichardt went to the front and led Steel Arrow and Lady Kingsborough past the seven-furlong post. After traversing another couple of hundred yards Leichardt increased his lead, his closest attendants being Steel Arrow, Lady Kißgaborough, Bernardo, Lamond, Golden Crown, and Ellerdale in that order. It was now that Collinaon shook up Ellerdale, and the mare answering gamely ran into second place. When five furlongs from_ home Leichardt was hanging out signs of distress, and as the turn to the straight was entered Ellerdale was alongside the leader. Coming down the straight Ellerdale went {to tho front, followed by Leichardt, Minstrel Boy, and Touchstone. At the distance post the latter came with a rush, and disposing of both Leichardt and Minstrel Boy, went in pursuit of Ellerdale, but was not equal to the occasion, the mare gaining the judge's verdict by a neck. Minstrel Boy, who wore down Leichardt, finished a length behind Touchstone. Bustler whipped in. Time, 2 min 37isec. TWO-YEAR-OLD STAKES, of 150 sovs. Half a milo.

By Elkotbio Telbobaph.—CopywaHT.l [Pbb Press Association, i SYDNEY, September 16. (Rcooived September 16, 1889, at 1.30 p.m.) Abercorn and Ellerdale are decided favorites for the Metropolitan Stakes, and 5 to 1 is the best offer against either of them ; 6 to 1 is offered against Wycombe. Training ia carried on actively at Randwick. Pasha put in the best work this morning. Manton was restricted to Btrong working exercise. Abercorn, Australian Peer, and Melos were treated to fast work; all moving well.

We understand that arrangements have been completed for holding a pigeon shooting match here during the first week of December. The principal prize will be LIOO and the championship of the colony.

Some racehorses were offered at auction to-day by Messrs Wright, Stephenson, and Co., with the following results-.—Trapper, by Duntroon, bought iu at L 26 ; Crossbow, by Jav'iin, L2l, P. Laing; The Wolf, by Le Loup—Miss Elswiok, L 9, T. Landels; Merry Boy, passed in at LlO 10s; Lewis (steeplechaser), passed in at L 25 10a. By winning the Hawkesbury Handicap, Ellerdule has incurred the following penalties : Metropolitan Stakes, 71b, bringing her weight for that race up to Gst 13!b; Caulfield Cup, 71b, making her weight 7st 131b; Melbourne Cup, 7lb, making her weight in that race also 7at 131b. Ellerdale did not win a race as a two-year-old, but last season she won at Newcastle the November Handicap (Gat 101b), and at Sydney Tattersall's won the Cup (6st), cutting out the two miles in 3min 36sec.

Neither Touchstone nor Minstrel Boy is engaged in any of the other big spring handicaps. The report presented at the Carisbrook Cricket Club's annual meeting on Saturday stated that last season's roll stood at twentysix senior, eight Gen junior and High School, and eight honorary players. This does not comparo favorably with the previous year, und in consequence the revenue has not been sufficient to cover expenses. A special general meeting was held in July to consider the financial position, and to meet the indebtedness a special contribution was invited from member?. The amount so subscribed amounted to L 22 Is. The Committee regret that this special appeal was not met by all members. The total receipts for the year amounted to L 99 0s 4d, and the expenses to L 95 4s 6d, leaving a small balance in hand. The Committee proposed that the club make application this season for half tho ground and one room in the pavilion at a rental of LSO. The report was adopted with the exception of the last clause; the matter alluded to therein was referred to the incoming committee to make arrangements for the ground. It was decided that the matter of outstanding subscriptions should be placed in tho hands of a solicitor to take steps for the recovery of the same. The following office-bearers were elected for the ensuing year:—Presidents, Messrs J. P. Maitland and Holmes; captain, Mr C. Rattray ; deputy-captain, Mr Harper; committee—Messrs Bell, Cargill, Smith, Johnson, and Burt. Tho matter of the appointment of a hon. secretary and treasurer was left to the new committee. Mr A. Cargill was appointed delegate to the 0.C.A., and four new members of the club were elected,
