[Gossip by Old Identity.] Kins? (.'ole will be one of the attractions at the Forlmry Trotting Club’s races on the 27th and 28ih November, and Emmeline is almost sure to come and have another slap at the record.

Nelson was the bfet of this batch—a noble-lookmg hoi so and a. good handicap performer, he liaving won the Auckland Cup three limes in succession, and in one season (1885-66) captured the Auckland, Wellington, and Dunedin Cups. It was Necklace that ho had to beat in the Dunedin Cup. This pair came home together, and Huiherlai.il, who rode Necklace, had his foot hurt by hcinr squeezed against. the rails.

He ran thiid in the Cup last year. Of the Randwick Plato runners that are in the Melbourne Cup, Diva's kio gets 111b off. Posinatus 101b, Indiscretion 91b, Lilvveil 41b, and Cagon has the same weight in lire Cup as lie had in the Plate, so his chance from a weight point of view is not good. Early investors on V.R.C. Derby and Cup will feel tlie retirement of Kavello. Prior to the A.J.C. racing Ravelin was a pronounced fancy for both races mentioned. He has been irchaving badly at the harrier, and becoming dangerous. It has been decided to unsex him and give him a long spell Pommern, winner of the Imperial Produce Plate at Kompton (England) is by a half-brother to Grafton, whose slock have done well in Australasia. Mowbray was a year ago supposed to be trio best of Mr ,T. B. Reid’s three-year-olds, but he ran through last season w ilhout scoring, and has started this season by winning a tinpot selling race at ’Wellington. Mr J. Cony, of Blenheim. lias now bought Mowbray for OSjcs.

Anna Carlovna broke down in the Caulfield Cup. ■■ Tcrlinga ” write- of the race thus : Though Vuille and Co. had her for sale at 2.000gs all through lire winter, she started first favorite. There i-. no harm in saying now that Anna Carlovna’s leg was giving trouble last spring. She got through the Melbourne Slake,-, ami was then put by until the autumn, when she came back to work looking very burly There was a iot of sup-riluons Mint to be worked off. but by racing her at intervals her owner gradually got her into racing shape, and, judging by the betting, she was expected to win the October Stakes. She failed in that, but won the Caulfield Stake- and Eclipse Stakes. On the Friday there were rumors thit there was a screw- loose somewhere, but tiro rush to get on her at the close of the betting on the Cup seemed to say that E. A. Connolly had no fears as to her getting through without a breakdown. I met him an hour before the race, and he said he expected Anna to win, but had backed three others at nice prices. Well, Anna Carlovna'.- leg failed in the race. Fully half a mile from home it could be plainly seen that she was losing ground instead of working into position to slip U]t on the the ho’svo turn. The leg ha,d given way, and it was all over with Anna Carlovna. How she wonJd have fared bad her four legs stood to her no one can say. She had no chance when reduced to three.
■St. Carwyne was first into the straijh*. Hush Money came at St. Canvyne. .v I he boat her off. It was plain tsars •• T«. • linga, "j Horn the way Shanahan was riding St. Canvyne and looking at the right, wing that the expected the danger to coin, from there. He was quite right. On* came Uncle Sara and then Ha tides. Uncle Sam was only outside about four horses corning round the turn, and lie went on to the middle of the track, wher*’ the ground, owing to so much galloping on it in training, is firmer and faster lnrre on the protected part near tho rail-. Yon could hear the yells of “Uncle Sam wins” iro:i: the Leger stand as the big chestnut set;led down to bis work. He simply smothered >St. Carwyne. Rathlc-a did likewise, but could mak" no impnaion on Uncle Sam, who canm along with out tho sign of a falter, and won by t v and a-haii leucths. By all account s the Oamavu Trotting Club's mealing was a big success —well attended, well managed, and well betted on. Dunedin stables did all right at Gore this week:. Mr Ryan well deserved his trin ui:h Matvelite, for this horse hn* run consistently from the Opening of tin* season, and C. GfcsJer has him wondcfiilly v.» 11. Mosgiel also scored again. He is hj \try fail - horse of his class. Mr C. Clarke would feel heartened up by the sncee--s of his mare Officious. As for United Service, he led ail the way in the Spring Handicap, and lasted out the join nev, the point that some were not sure about. Arty Wilson rode him at 7.0. This capable jockey is keeping down in weight. It is on the cards that Palisade and Sister Radius may go to Australia for a trip in the autumn. Says “Phaeton”: As year by year the Derby contests in Australia come round, and as frequently happens the name of Carbine is found close up in the pedigree of the winner, such serves to increase the regret that what should undoubtedly have been a victory for tho wonderful bay in the V .R.r. Derby of 1888 is entered up as a defeat. Had Carbine’s name been entered up (as it should have been, amongst Derby winners, it would have been strikingly appropriate, seeing what a highly-interesting record has been built up by his descendants. However, though Carbine’s name is missing from the list of Derby winners, it can still be claimed for the son of Musket that no horse’s descend ants have so great a sire record in con neetion witly the blue ribands in Australia.. The list of Carbine’s descendant* who won_ Derby honors and who subsequently sired winners is as follows; Y allace, by Carbine—V.R.O. Derbv, Aiiibcnte, by Carbine—A. ,1.0. and V.R.C. Derbies. P.J.A., by Wallace—V.R.O. Derbv. Lady Wallace, by Wallace—V.P'.C. Derby. Mountain Xing, J,v Wallace—A.d.C. and V.R.C. Derbies. Wilaii, by Wallace—V.R.C. Derbv Wo law.'l, by Wallace— V.R.C. Derb; , Mountain Knight, by Mountain Kin —A..I.C. Derby.
