The eighth annual parade of entire horses under the management of the Otago Agricultural and Pastoral Association was held at Tahuna Park yesterday, when, notwithstanding the unfavorable weather during the early part of the day, there a capital attendance of visitors. The entries of horses were considerably more numerous than in previous years, and the quality was, on the whole, of a higher class than usual. Principal interest was of course taken in the Clydesdales, which were an excellent class, but in which Mr Gawn a champion Lord Salisbury, as usual, stood out moat prominently as the model of a Clydesdale stallion— notwithstanding his fourteen years. Half a dozen or more of his young stock that were on the ground were also much admired, more especially Glaneer, Crown Prince, Marquis of Salisbury, and Lord Cranley. _ Mr Mangan’s young imported horse British Lion also attracted much notice, for being in excellent condition his many good points showed to great advantage. Mr Trestrail’s recent importation Lucky Willie was another horse that found many friends, and when put up for sale he was certainly not dear at 107 guineas. Among the new entries were two of very high quality in Ben Lomond and Clansman. Mr Charters’s colt His Worship, a worthy son of tho wellknown stallion What’s Wanted, looked exceedingly well. This colt and Mr Trestrail’s Duncan Gillies were by many considered to bear away the palm in the younger classes. There were several other fine Clydesdales on the ground, but we have not apace to mention them in detail. Thoroughbreds were not particularly numerous, but the quality was much above tho average. An inspection of those old racehorses Trump Card, Vanguard, and Le Loup reminded one of many imporuant aud hard-fought turf battles that they had taken part iu and emerged from with distinguished credit. All three were looking in good fettle, as also were two other well-known racers in Captain Webster and Silver Mark, The only other exhibit in this class was the Hon. G. M‘Lean’s Gorton, who, through recent creim.-ble performances by his young stock, is steadily increasing iu favor as a There were but two carriage stallions, one being our old friend Dexter —looking as blooming as ever—and the other the imported German-bred colt Orpheus. The latter was briskly competed for at auction, and the hammer did net fall till he had been run up to 230 guineas. Ponies were represented by only three entries, while trotting and roadster stallions found no more than two representatives each. The following is a full list of the entries ; CLYDESDALE STALLIONS.
