SPORTING INTELLIGENCE.

At the Ohoka races on Thursday, Rosebud (9at) won the Cup and Tornado (8,9) the Handicap. •..■,, \- Ilin «' ' Tirailleur has been consistently supported for the New Zealand Cup since his win at Napier on Tuesday, and is now a decided favorite for this event, anything over 3 to 1 being eagerly snapped up. Metric England is next in demand at 100 to 16, and a point less is accepted about Dudu and Sultan, These are all that are really being inquired for.
