SPORTING INTELLIGENCE.

TURF CHIT CHAT

[By The Admiral.]

Mr T. C. White, of Gore, has purchased Prime Warden and his half-brother.Battle-field from Mr E. Gates, of Ashhurton. The accident at Lake Takapuna resulting in the death of the New Zealand Cup candidate Lady Anna and injuries to the pony Sweet Lavender revives a similar catastrophe at the Forbury when Hippomenes and Pique, galloping the opposite way of the course, collided. On that occasion, however, the consequences were fortunately much less serious.

The death is announced of the well-known Amuri sportsman, Mr G. W. M'Rae, who owned Tekoa (sire of Secretary and other good horses), Balquither, Sprig of Myrtle, and Loveshot (who won the Juvenile Stakes at the C. J.C. meeting in 1894, and paid the sensational dividends of £lOl 14s and £Bl 16s).

Telemeter's withdrawal from the New Zealand Cup was occasioned by his slipping while galloping and wrenching the sheath of one of his back tendons.

The principal weight-for-age race at the AJ.C. meeting to-morrow is the Randwick Plate, of three miles, the field for whioh includes True Blue, Positano, Coil, Delaware, and Holbrook.
