The Press Association agent at Wellington who attempted to interpret the code message from Sydney giving particulars of the last day of the A.J.C. meeting made a sad mess of it so far as the Steeplechase was concerned. Instead of the New Zealander, Peter Osbeck, being awarded the race—as was published in this colony—that hois 2 was disqualified, and Artist, that ran third, was placed second—the race itself being won by Don. Peter Osbeck was very injudiciously taken to the front a mile from home, and his rider drove him along instead of nursing him for a finish. Artist and The Artist were his attendants, and Marmion having fallen, and Artist coming to grief at the fence near the turn, the favorite was left with a twentylengths’ lead of Don; but Peter Osbeck had been ridden so determinedly that he was stopping to nothing; and Nolan, persevering with Don, reduced the gap at every stride, and getting on terms opposite the stand, beat the favorite cleverly. A protest was entered against Peter Osbeck for interfering with Artist during the race. _ After hearing the evidence the stewards disquali-
fied Peter Osbeck, and placed Artist second and The Artist third. Wallaby broke hia - back when he fell. Of the race for the Craven Plate, ; “Augur” says:—“Tho Craven Plate was considered a real good thing for Abercorn, : odds of 4 to 1 being laid on him, and he | never gave his supporters the slightest cause j for alarm, for ho came when he pleased, and won with ridiculous ease. Manton, who < was clean out of tho race at the half-mile j post, finished in a wonderful manner, and gained second honors. This was a good per- . formanco, and if he can be trained for the Melbourne Cup he will be one of the most dangerous horses in the great raco of the V.R.0.”
