Campbell), 8 Salzburg (7.7, R. Buddicomb). Fender dwelt a little; otherwise a capital start. Obsono first showed out, but Sister Radius and Findhorn led to tho straight, where Fender became prominent. TV low tho distance* Fender almost get up, then she hung for a stride or two and came again with a fine rush. Wilson apparently thought he had won. but tha judge’s verdict was Sister Radius by a m.se from Fender, the latter a noco in front of Findhorn. Salzburg and Charrndla were together at the head of the real after a gap. Time. Imin 15 2-Ssec. JUVENILE HAND] CAP, 125sovs; second 15.-ovs, third lOsov?. 4f. 1— Sir G.

Holiday made the most of the start, and led Bonsign for a little; then Bellshire ran into second place, and so they wont until inside the distance, where Consign raced up close, and then put in such a tine spurt on the rails as to threaten Holiday. but tfie latter just got home, the oflicia! verdict being heads between the three. Blitz was next, three or four lengths away. Time, 50 l-sfec. FAREWELL HANDICAP, ISOsovs; second SOsovs, third lOsovs. 7f. s—Vi. T.

Otlcra: 1 Twelfth Night (8.6. F. C. Porter). 6 Martel (7.11. .j. Olsen). 4 Scotch Melody (7.11. J. Campbell), 7 Officious (7.0. A. Lloyd). ‘‘ A Rood start. O.gier .‘■(’rambled to the liearl of affairs, Martian Maid next, Officious last. At the five furlongs Ogier lay two lengths clear of Martian Maid, Martel and Twelfth Night next. At the. throe furlongs Martian Maid was catching Ogier, and Twelfth Night lay third. Osier faltered on the homo turn, and Martian Maid caught him. The latter held a lead at the distance, and, stalling off Golden King, r-he won hy a neck. Osier half a, length away, then Twelfth Night and Scotch Melody. Time, Imin 29 l-ssec. Notes by Old Identity. Very seldom do wo sec such a good race in the Hurdle Handicap. The four of them wore Irving seriously, and all had chances up to the last live strides. Tim course was fairly fast, and the pace sound all the way, nevertheless it was a surprise to line! tlra.t the steeplechaser True Bine had put up a record for the track, ripping no less than 9. l-s?ec off the previous records by LeeMde, in ISO 6. and Erl King, in 1011. H. Coker rode True, P.luc on this occasion, and .handled the. grey very cleverly, making use of his superior jumping to gain ground at every fence, and twice taking advantage, of slants on th“ rails.
i fr is understood that Ren-on got- his ; stitie hurt during ilie race, and that may 1 havo affected Ids chance. True Blue was bred by r. schoolmaster I named M’Kinnon. at Drummond. : Volspeil had a now-m-never chance in 1 . ’ c Fernliill Handicap. Out in from with minimum weight Pvt he could not ; ill ids advantage. Quit inns seemed to be ■ inning deei.-ively at the distance. Then : \r.’.7.r made n. rush and quite tool, charge, winning quite as easily as on the first day. though carrying a rtono more. Honestv is admittedly unreliable. H-m friends sav that she can do wonders when sir' lik’s. hut thev never can tell when sli > wil' try. Site took it into her head to ga'iiop in tin’ Allam.on Welter, and won ii.liv■jw.iW. There is no doubt that Directnire did chon across the other horses at (he .-tart. The patio! rH-wards report'd to that effect, and -T. line was suspended for three months, it V. as quite right for the .Indicia! Coiomitlie to take cation in such a case. Putt i, i- said that l)ire> toirc docs thi.- P ..rt of thing habitually of Iter own accord, and if that- be the case seems to me that Rae inichi rrasor.ally ask to he given an. option unity of bringing tviderme nil til,’ subje'e! Foul riding dm ves _punishment.. hut I suggest as a. matter oi taw pJav that perhaps a mi-take has been j mr.'le in this rase. .Backers whp watched Reve.l in due Otago Handicap gave him a big chance in the St. Andrew's, "and lie confirmed I Iriv belief lev winning from end t" end. d. Rao weighed out for Martins, but, having Keen suspended, ho bad to stand down, and K. M'f.'oll put on the white and scarlet. R>mga'nere tipped Mnoro off in the preliminary, resenting a touch of the, spurs. Specialform ran a good race, considering that shis only coming on. She should shape well at Invercargill. As for the Taihoa Handicap, Hoiden Rupee got off with -such a. lead as- to settle the race from the start, 'this colt was standing behind at. the harrier mid galloped through. having speed on whilst toe other.were scrambling to get, into their stride. | am told that just as In set sad, while in the rear, Olsen sang nut “’Give, me a chance." Probably he and the starter too were taken bv surprise at Golden Rupee’s dash. and. as the inquiry piovcd, this dash began, iit such a way as to put the cob technically in the right, for ho was uoi in trout of the barrier when the word was eiven. h- was just a streak of good luck for Golden Rupee and had luck for United Service.
The onlookers wer: 1 honestly in doubt ns to what won the (timid Stand Handiiap. Some t-honciit- t end or won. A. I\il>oa was evident Iv of that opinion. My expectation was flint a dead lie,-if. between Sister Kvlius and Fender would ho signalled. Mr Aldworth. the judge. said that Sister Radius won hv a nose, and ho was the only man who could say in such a finish. IJnnsisn’s good rim at the end of the Juvenile Handicap indicates to me that this handsome filly "ill win before long. She steed the pressure, well. The official verdict was “Holiday by a long head.” It. Hnddicovnh, who lode Ogier on the first day, was the jockey who rode Martian M'ajd and beat Ogier in the Farewell Handicap. F. C. Porter and J. Olson each had throe winning mounts at the mooting,. 11. Coker and 11. Donovan two each, and other jockeys with one win each were J. Campbell, H. T.nrrigan. IT Huddicom, IV. J. Potter. J. Horde, and A. Lloyd. The torn] stake money was £2.980. Tiie laigcst cheques to owners are: Mr J. C. X. £425, Messrs Reid and Studholme £515, Mr J. IV. Skinner £275, Mr C. Macho.ll £220, Mr J. J.
