SPORTING INTELLIGENCE.

It should have been Silvermark that was scratched on Mohday for the New Zealand Cup. How the telegraphist converted the name into Shamrock surpasseth understanding.

The total won at the Napier meeting was L 1,116, of which Mr S. H. Gollan received L 536 15s and Mr Munn LlO4 10s.

In answer to inquiries “Pegasus” repeats the statement that we published at the time of the Hon, W. Robinson’s death, namely, that all wagers made on his horses prior to his death are off. The rule bearing on the matter is contained in the Dunedin Jockey Club’s book of rules, and it reads as follows: —“ All bets are p.p.—play or pay—with the following exceptions: (1) vVhen the nominator dies before the decision of the race. (2) When the race is postponed to a future -sveek, or the conditions are altered after the bets are made. (3) Bets oh matches, (4) Bets made after the running numbers are telegraphed about a horse that is not subsequently under the starter’s orders.” The Manawatu Racing Club have decided against holding a two days’ summer meeting in lieu of one day. A largely-attended meeting of the Phoenix Cricket Club, called by requisition, was held in the Shamrock Hotel last evening. It was thought fit at a previous meeting of the club to engage half of the Carisbrook Ground in preference to the Caledonian. Since then, a number of the most prominent players, believing it was a step in the wrong direction, wished the decision then arrived at to be reversed ; hence last night’s meeting, After a long and animated discussion, during which the opinion was freely expressed that a change of grounds at the present time would seriously affect the club’s financial position, it was decided to accept the Caledonian Society’s original offer, and take the ground for the coming season, playing the opening match next Saturday week.
