KICCARTON TRAINING NOTES,
CHRISTCHURCH, October 24,
The weather this morning was bad for training operations. Alsace went once round at a strong pace, moving well. Dudu and British Lion were sent a strong gallop of two miles. The pair strode along in good style. Whisper did six furlongs with St. Malo at top. The latter had the best of it. Recluse cantered six furlongs, then went fast for another six, but did not show to great advantage. Sultan was sent two and a-half miles at a good pace, but seemed to be sore. Merrie England was not out, but is expected to work this afternoon. RANGIORA RACES. (Special to the Stab.] RANGIORA, October 24. The following is the result of the NORTH CANTERBURY CUP. One mile and «-half. Mr 0.0. Stead's Soots Grey, Bst.. „ 1 Mr P. Butler's Repose, 6st 71b .. .. 2 Mr T. Sheehan'a Roseoud, 7st 81b .. 3 A head separated each pair. [Bv Elbctrio Trleobaph,—Qoftbwht.l [Per Press Association.] THE V.R.C. MEETING. MELBOURNE, October 24. I Received Ootober 24,1889, at 12,20 p.m.) At Tattersall's last night betting over the V.R.C. meeting was quiet. For the Cup Meloe, Cardigan, and Chicago
are nardening, while and Btav» bavebeen driven back, and the latter, it is tnourflt, win be a very unlikely starter. W. Hickenbotham baa returned to Remington from Caulfleld with Carbine and Moorbank, the latter having been purchased by Mr E. G. Broadribb. Neither Abercorn nor Dreadnought pleased the toots this morwng, as both horses grunted terribly. The best work was put in by Loyal Stone, Richelieu, and Carrington. DUNEDIN CHESS AND DRAUGHTS CLUB. There was a good muster of draughts players at the club room, last night, to witness the presentation of prizes won in the draughts handicap tournament. The first prize, an inlaid draughts i board, made and presented by the president, (Mr L. Shaw), was won by Mr D. Brodie, t> very young and skilful player, with a fine score of 38i points. Mr Brodie also won Mr Caldow's prize of a beautiful set of men. The second prize was won by Mr J. "' Hutton with a score of 35, an alwm clock, and board and set of men; the third prize, a volume of 'Leisure Hour' for 1889 (the gift of the president), fell to Mr Shaw with a score of 33£; the fourth, a set of draught* men and a penknife, to Mr Cameron, a promising player, with a score of 26£ ; the fifth, a bound volume of Thackeray 8 works (presented by Mr E. Lawson) to Mr Lowe, with a score of 26. Mr Caldow presented the prizes. A vote of thanks was accorded to the handicappera (Messrs Caldow and Dowe). The Exhibition Draughts Tournament for the championship of the colonies promises to be a great success. The subscription lists are coming in very ireely, and from tbe number of draughts players who are coming from all the colonies there is every probability of the gathering being as unique as it will be interesting.
