RICCARTON TRAINING NOTES.
CHRISTCHURCH, October 31
The tracks at Riccarton are now very hard, and training infirm-legged horses is a matter of great difficulty. This morning Alsace galloped a mile and a-balf in good style, British Lion and Cynisca covered the same distance at three-quarter pace. Masthead made one circuit, finishing at top, and afterwards walked very lame, the mare’s knee giving way again. Whisper traversed the Gup distance in capital form, pulling up sound and well. Wakatipu went a mile and a-half fast—a moderate gallop—and Sultan, after going a mile at three-quarter pace, was joined by Ruby and taken along at top for another mile. The Cup horse, though in evident pain, got over his ground fast, but afterwards walked very lame. It is very doubtful if he will get to the post.
