The Otago Agricultural and Pastoral Society’s sixteenth annual horse parade took place at Tahuna Park this morning. There was a large attendance, and the entries were as numerousas ever. Amongst the Clydesdales Stanrigg Duke stood out prominently from the rest, although, when everything was summed up, it was no easy task to single out any particular animal as worthy of special mention, so evenly classed were all the horses. Gowston Prince, belonging to Mr H. Rea, of Melbourne, looked exceedingly well; St. Alexander was in the pink of condition; Lord Lyon again attracted much attention: Bar None is a fine colt of fair sub. stance; Clydebank and The Mackenzie were ia splendid condition. As for tho others, thov were all about equal, there being very little to pick and ohoose from among their num* her. Under the heading o! carriage, trotting, and roadster stallions, Orpheus, Wicklow, Merril Stanlob, The Cz?r, B ! ue Peter, Cook of the Walk, General Tracy (trotter), and Honest Wilks (trotter) were about the pick. The arrangements were admirably carried out, thanks principally to the efforts of the Committee of Management Messrs J. Shiel, J. Smith, J. Gow, R. Gawn, W. H. Taggart, A. Douglas, W. Charter,), P. Pattullo,’ and Secretary Duthie. The horses paraded were as follow:
