NORTH OTAGO RACES. j First- Day.—Saturday. It was a very fine trip, thoroughly enjoyable, that- Dimedin visitors "had to Oamaru on Saturday. 'Tho weather was still and warm, the trains not overcrowded, and they ran to time. A very largo crowd assembled at the course. Mr .Buckley, the president, said he believed it to be a record attendance. The track was very fast, and First Glance made a record. The sum of £14,052 \'. as put through the totalisators during the afternoon, an increase of £l,lOl-1,- on last year's total for tho day. Mr Henrys was the judge as well as the handicapper, and performed both duties satisfactorily. Mr K. E. Harley's starting was patchy.. Results : SUMMER HURDLES, llOsovs; second 2Qsovs, third lOsovs. lfm. 3—C. R. Grant's Stone Ginger by Lord Rosslyn—Komuri, 9.2 (H. Coker) 1 2—A. Rore's Beacon, 12.0 (W. J. Porter) 2 A —D. Rutherford's Andrea, 9:0 (M'Seveney) 3 Also ran : 1 Ha tana (10.10, R. Gray). Stone Ginger led to tho first fence, where Hat arm fell. Andrea, lay second. With a mile to go Stone Ginger headed Andrea two lengths, Beacon six lengths further away. Beacon came'fast from the half-mile and passed Andrea at the foot of tho hill, but could not approach Stone Ginger, who romped home by three lengths. Beacon the same distance away. Time, 3min 17sec. MAIDEN PLATE, 60sovs; second lOsovs. 8.10 up. 4f. 2—E. Russell's Master Ranald by Canrobcrt—Lady Ranald (11. Donovan) .' 1 6—J. Fairbairn's Bouation (D. R. Anderson) 2 7— C. Clarke's Helicon (D. King) ... 3 Others : 8 Pleasant Way (Ellis), 3 Skirl (M'Sevcney), 5 Bed Shield (If. Porter), 1 Martigues (Wcrmald), 4 Sartbun (Coker), and 9 Dalkeith (Rowlands). From the barrier the horses at once made a strung-out procession, Master Ranald at the head, Skirl and Dalkeith at the rear. Mr Russell's gelding had such an initial advantage that he was never approached. He won by a length and a-half from Bonation, who left Helicon at the foot of the hill and beat him the same distance; Martigues, two lerjgths further away, was fourth, then Red Shield. Time, 49 l-ssec. XORTH OTAGO CUP, 400sovs; second SOsovs, third 40sovs. 4—J. Grigg's First Glance by Kosmos Boy—Ophelia 11., 9.0 (A. Wormald) 1 2—W. Gardiner's John Barleycorn, 8.0 (F. Porter) ". 2 I—Re id and Studholme's Reval, 8.13 (Lorigan) 3 Others : 6 X.gatiruanui (7.7, Goscomb), 3 Flower of the West (7.5, J. H. Moore) \ 5 Banian (7.3. D. R. Anderson), and 7 Troon (6.7, L.' S. Lloyd). Considering tho fidgetiness of the horses at the post it was a- pood start, except that Ngatiruanui. who was held and standing a bit sideways, lost about four lengths. Reval streaked away first, followed by Flower of the West and First Glance, and in the first furlong these three had a three-length?' lead of John Barleycorn. The same order at the six furlongs, where Flower of tho West caright Reval and First Glance was at their heels, ■Jolui Barleycorn three lengths away, the others out of it. First Glance passed Reval after a mile, and John Barleycorn commenced to close up. First Glance- led Reval into the straight. Flower of the West handy. The latter failed quickly, and John Barleycorn improved his position. At the foot of the hill First Glance ran out alone, Reval after her, nothing else in it, and Mr Grieg's mare, won by three lengths, John Barleycorn six lengths further away, then Banian and Flower of the West, Xgatiuranui last. Time, 2min 5 l-ssec.~-a record for Xcw Zealand. JUVEXILE HANDICAP, ISOsovs; second 25sovs, third lOsovs. 4f. 3—J. B. Reid's Down by Downshire— Oyre, 7.2 (D. R. Anderson) ... 1 I—J- 11. Prosser's Bonsign. 7.7, car. 8.2 (F. Porter) ..T 2 4 W. A. Xicholl's Varnish, 7.10 (F. Woods; 3 Others : 2 Bellshirc (7.7, M'Kearney), 5 Thaddeus (7.7, J. IL Moore), 7 Beautyform (7.7, car. 8.0. M'Gregor), and '6 Oriande (7.0, car. 7.4, Goscomb). A poor start, Down moving away with a clear lead of Bonsign, Bellshire and Beautyform at the tail of the procession. The race was entirely between the two leaders. Bonsign almost caught Down after a furlong, and came at him again at the foot of the hill, but these spurts settled Mr Prosser's handsome filly, and Down romped home by two lengths and a bit. Varnish three lengths further away, then Bellshire and Thaddeus. Time, 43 3-ssec. FLYING HANDICAP. 200sovs; second 40sovs, third 20sovs. 6f. 6—J. R. Hart's Chudic by Finland—■ Xovoo Vremvn. 8.4 (Lorigan) ... 1 2—J. J. M'Bride's Obsono, 8.10 (F. Porter) 2 4—C. Machell's Meltchikoff, 7.5 (F. Woods) 3 Others : 1 Clynclish (8.9. Coker). 5 Fender (7.9, Goscomb), and 3 Charmilla. (7.9, D. R. Anderson). An indifferent start. Obsono being away first and Chudic second, then, after a gap, Meltchikoff and Fender. Charmilla was left standing, but that did not seem to be the starter's faidt. She. walked hack. Obsono and Chudic held charge throughout. Entering the last furlong Chudic. challenged, and Obsono was almost at once in trouble, Lorigan on Chudic looking round and gauging his win by a length. Meltchikoff was half a length away, and Fender three lengths off. Time, lmin 14 l-ssec. Anderson was fined £2 for disobedience at the post. LADIES' BRACELET, 75sovs; second 15sovs, third Ssovs. lm. 2—G. Carter's Steperina. by St-epniak— Pelerine, 11.5 (Mr M'Donald) ... 1 3—J. M'Auliffe's Bridegroom. 11.0 (Mr ♦ Patterson) 2 s—. J.

Steperina led by a little all the way from Bridegroom, Inland, and John Reilly, and won comfortably by a length and a quarter, third a length further away, John Reilly fourth. Time, lmin 47 2-ssec. Dolly Daylight fell a furlong from home and broke her leg. The rider was not sei-icusly hurt. ALDERSYDE HANDICAP, lOOsovs; second 20sovs, third lOsovs. sf. I—F. Neliga.y.s Pctif-sus by Birkenhead—Petrovna, 9.4 (Coker) ... 1 2 li. A. Knight's Medley, 7.4 (F. Woods) 2 3—J. F. Buchanan's Martigues, 7.5, car. 8.0 (F.

King), and 9 Resemblance- (6.7, car. ! 7.0, D. R. Anderson). 1 Petrosus and Martigues moved off .smartest from a good start, Resemblance last. After two furlongs the}'' were joined hy Parlovna, and Medley drew nigh. Petrosus had charge a , furlong from home, and, stalling off Medley, won by a long •neck, third three lengths away, Trireme J

and Miss Finland next. Chris-mas Lily pulled up in the straight. Time, lmin 2sec. BELFIELD WELTER, 120sovs; second 30-sovs, third lOsovs. 7f. 4—C. Machell's Moddite by Royal Artillery—Quietest, 9.3, car. 9.8 (VVormald) 1 I—J. Ruddy's Sartorze. 9.7 (F. Porter) 2 5—J. Buckley's All Ready, 7.10 (Lorigan) 3 Others : 7 Gnome (9.8, H. Donovan), 3 Angelina (8.13, M'-Seveny), 2 Glenowl (8.11. J. Beard), 3 Leading Lady (8.10, car. 9.1, Coker), 8 Stargaze? (7.F\ D. R. Anderson), and 6 Doon (7.10, F. V,pods). Glenowl lost ground at the start. Angelina led Moddite and Leading Lady. Sartorze goDblocked when making his run after three furlongs. Moddite ran to the front entering the straight, and won bytwo lengths ; third, tea ten a head ; Stargazer and Doon next. Time, lmin 28 3-ssec. Notes by Old Identity. Hatana looked dull in the coat and spiritless, and it must have been on form rather than appearance that they made him favorite for the Hurdles. Stone Ginger looked very well, and he was well, for he galloped boldly to the finish and jumped in great style, though a bit too high. Beacon lay behind for a mile arid a-quarter, probably expecting Stone Ginger to come back, and when Beacon did make his run he found himself challenging something that at the weights was his master. Experts thought that the Maiden Plate would be between Martigues and Skirl. The public fancied Master Ranald. The race did not provide a test of these opposing opinions, for Master Ranald secured the advantage of a very bad start, and nothing had a chance with him. Helicon and Bonation chased energetically, but thej' would have had to fly to win. In the North Otago Cup two records were made—the £2,270 put through the totalisator was the largest sum ever taken in a race on the course, and First Glance cracked the Dominion record for a mile and a-quarter by scoring 2min 5 l-ssec. Mr Seweil, the timekeeper, held a watch in each hand, and they agreed, and I got the private timings of six experienced men, all making it the same as Mr Seweil. The performance was full of merit, for First Glance carried a fair weight, helped to make the pace all the way, and at t;.<end had such a mastery over the others that Wormald merely had to keep i-er going. Reval took the lead and kept if as long as he could. Ordinarily that is not the game for a top weight, but rhc-y say. that Reval races best in front. John Barleycorn's friends need not throw stonea at him for being beaten. He ran well. Onlokers thought that he was lying rather far back in the early stages, but when the time was seen everybody realised that F. Porter was quite justified in keeping steady, for the pace was amazingly fast, and if he had pressed John Barleycorn he would probably have run him to a standstill and thus forfeited the chance he had of the loaders corning back. I think that Porter rode ■ judiciously. In the circumstances it was a feat 1o heat Reval. Catch First Glance he could not — not the way she was galloping in this race. Twice, during the Juvenile Handicap, Bonsign nearly caught Down, who got the advantage at the start, -but she lacked the condition to see it out. One could see at the beginning of the Flying Handicap that either Obsono or Chudic ought to win. All the others seamed to be more, ,or lees unready when the word was given. .rider was reported for not going up when or dered to, and the Judicial Committee him. Coining to the last furlong Chudic seemed to press Obsono on to the i.-uh, but this was not complained about r.fficially. I can't make out Chudic. At Dimedin he ran very badly. At Oamaru ho did not look any more fit, but he. saw i tout like a racehorse, and I am told ran much better than his owner expected. Dolly Daylight was shot where rite fell in the Ladies' Bracelet, and the carcass was sledded along the straight to the place, of burial. There was a great rf.cirg argument over this mishap. Brown bet Jones 5s as the. horses went out that Dolly Daylight would be last. After the race Brown claimed the ss. Jones demurred, pointing out that Dolly Daylight had not finished, therefore was not last. Brown consulted a turf lawyer, who for a bit of fun "kidded" both parties, and the argument/ spread over the lawn without any headway being made, until the corpse went past, when Brown claimed that the conditions were fulfilled inasmuch a? the mare had passed the post. Jones retorted that the time had expired, and that she, had not carried her jockey past tho post. Ultimately a Belgian fund collector hove in sight, and the good-humored contenders settled it by each paying 5s to the fund. Medley lost her chance in the Aldersyde Handicap by getting away badly. With an even start she would . have'troubled Petrosus. Moddite paid a good dividend in the Welter. Bad judgment on the part of the public to neglect, him, though Sartorze was unlucky.
