THE V.A.T.C. MEETING'
[‘>y Electric Telegraph. —Copyright.] [Per Press Association.]
MELBOURNE, October 19, For the concluding day’s racing of the V.A.T.C. spring meeting beautiful weather was experienced, although the sky was somewhat overcast. The course was rendered heavy owing to the rain on Thursday and Friday. Sir Henry and Lady Loch and Sir William Robinson were present. The attendance is estimated to have been the largest ever seen on the Caulfield course. The win of Boz in the principal event was not an unalloyed blessing to the Ring, as the son of Boaworth and Hypatia had been steadily supported since the weights appeared. The Charmer ran a rattling good mare. It appears the irony of fate that Ramage, who has just severed his connection with Mr Cook’s stable, should ride the winner. Mr J. Cripps, the owner of Boz, lands a very good stake. The following are the results ;

After traversing half the distance, Sinecure went to the front followed by Teuton, The Charmer, Don Giovan, Boz, and Gasburner. Another couple of furlongs further on and Pakeha made a bold bid for victory, but had to give way to The Charmer, who was first into the straight.
