Free for A.II Thursday has already Ivon Mated in our columns. This is what (hj: (Tu-istchurch ‘ I’nv-• ’ had to say yesterday of that event: —••There war some very interest mg vacing, hut (ho Free for All, which would have been the most attractive event on the rd, was spoilt by a very bad start. .After on© uusuceesr-ful attempt, the, field were son;, away when Eccentric, King I He. and Dillon 801 l were in line, but tho other jour starters were a long way back, and had no chance of getting rc'i.y on even terms with the front division. I'mnieiico was left with a very lug handicap to make up, and rho made a hrdliai't effort. Dillon Be)! and King Colo oi.c’a in turn led their chances bv breaking, and in the straight Enimefino w.ic sent in pursuit of Eccentric. The latter, however, last'd long enough to win by about a length, while King Coio was a. dozen lengths away third, with Dillon Bell next, 'The race provoked one of the greate-t demonstrations ever s°eti at Addington. Emmeline has always, been a great favorite with tho public, and on her return to tho enclosure she was greeted with tremendous cheers. There were groans for tho starter.
and cries of ‘Run it again 1’ and for a tV-w minutes the situation looked rather iiclv. hut eventually the crowd tooled down. It was certainly a very unfortunate incident, and judging by her finishing run, Emmeline was decidedly unlucky in losing. Brilliant ns she htns shown Imr-i-vli. J-.'mmoline has been anything hut j lucky for some time past, and as she will very scon be retiring from tho race track, a win in such a nice as the Free for AU would have mven her racing career a. very distinguished conclusion." Good dividends were the onlor of the day yesterday, hot a. single favorite getting homo. The best price of the nicei-ug was paid over Electrocute in the Dominion Handicap. Idle American-bred Bonista, who was tho public fancy when winning on Thursday, made a aurprising return to her barkers in the Hornby Handicap. Manila rone’s win was overdue. The Aucklander has not been favored with luck in his southern invasions. This, I think, in the third year he has. been petit to Hanterburv in quest of some of tho rich stakes offered there. How go.-a this for luck, or, sbio 11 1 say, jrdgnjont? A well-known Greynm;ith hotelkeeper entrusted a fellow-townsman with u £3 commission on indigo in the New Zealand Cup, all proceeds, to he invested on Oh.sono in the St (wards’ Handicap The result of the ronimi'seicin was that the banking account of " mine host ’’ be iit tiled to the extent of over £SCO 1 Mr W.
