(From Ouk Special Correspondent.]

CHRISTCHUKCH. November 11

A howling nor'-wester was blowing J<>r Canterbury "Cup day. and the conditions o) getting to the course per road wor' 1 mo>t unpleasant. The. belts of trees made the stands ami surroundings more sheltered. but it was stifling lint, and the attendance was below Saturday or Monday. The. course was very hard, and for the short courses down the straight in the early part, of the day very fast, but the fields caught the full blast of the wind doug the long- back stretch and round the top turn. Just prior to the running of t!v Canterbury Cup the wind veered round to south-west, and the temperature became lower. The race is easily described, for the pare over tlio fir:-;t six furlongs was very slow, and Warstep ran away with a tremendous lead. This she. maintained to the distance po«t in the run home, where the favorite caught and easily beat her. Private watches" made the time •Irr.in and over the last mile and adiaif 2min 40sec. The Jockey Club Handicap provided a very fine raco and a win for Otago with the Oamavu-owned horse John Barleycorn. He was always prominent m the betting, and only just missed being first favorite. He was slow in finding his feet, and prominent only in the rear till approaching the turn into the straight, where Bell got through on the rails in the run home. He was lucky to get through a bunch in front of the stand, and just beat Rinaldo, who came with a very smart run in the last half-furlong. A* slight shower of rain fell prior to the running oi the Oaks, but not enough to affect the going, and it cleared off again prior to the start, but was still blowing very keenly. Fir George Clifford's bracketed pair were made very warm favorites, and by running first and second easily landed the odd-. The last mile occupied lmin 4o3sec. and the full journey lijsec longer than Bonny Helen's victory last year. A heavy shower fell just before the last race was started, and somnwhat affected the totalisator investments. The total for the. dav was £32,880, as against £35.570 for the same day last year. | DETAILS OF THE RACING.
