A CHARGE AGAINST RACING.
[Per Press Association.—Copyright.]
SYDNEY, November 1. . With reference to the alleged deteriora* tion of Australian horses sent to India) Mr Bruce, chief inspector of stock, considers that racing as now conducted hdS a good deal to answer for. If horses were compelled to .carry decent weights, and to be at least:fifteen bands high, and if two-year-old racing were done away with, it would be possible to obtain useful horses. So far as racing is concerned it was not needed to improve the breed of horses. The racehorse of to-day was hot much, while the pony racing had a still worse effect in lowering the standard of useful horses. .
