TO THE EDITOR. Sir,— The horse Red Lanoer is most unfairiy handicapped for the Taieri meeting. When he met Jane Eyre last Easter at Beaumont his weight in the Plying Handicap was 8.7 and the mare carried 9.1. The gelding only won a maiden since and the mare several good handicaps; yet instead of being in receipt of 81b from the grey mare the bay only gets 41b at the Taieri. At the Beaumont, when the pair last met, the mare won by many lengths. Further comment is needless.—l am, etc., Tapanui, November 2. Sport.
