Saturday brought to a close, what tho ‘ Star ’ proudly acclaims the most successful gathering yet held in the Dommion. Interest, of course, centred in the Auckland Plate, Ijin, in which Warstep (Cup winner), Reputation (Derby winner and runner-up in the. Cup), Merry Roe, (Islington Plate winner), and Marshal M‘Donald (winner of the A.R.C. Handicap in 2min 34sec) met at w.f.a. As they paraded, the report says, Marshal MT’ionald showed some temper, and gave Price a rough time of it, the latter being applauded uy ilia patrons of the members’ stand for the manner in which he hung on by the bridle after losing his seat in the saddle. Reputation wound up a very warm favorite, carrying considerably more than half the investments on the machine, Warstep being second in request, and Marshal M'Donald the outsider. When they took ■up their positions at the post Warstep was near the rails. Merry P.oa dashed out aa the button was pressed, ’but Wars top r.t once went to the front, and with Merry Roe, Reputation, and Marshal M‘Donald racing in that order they .swept past i)i« .straight along the bar];. They still maintained their positions as they went out for the run down the hill to the borne turn, and throe furlongs from home it could be seen that Wilson was uneasy on tire fa vc rite. Mr Bidwill's colt was ,ki* striding along with the same dash a.-
showed in the Derby, and when he turned into the straight his defeat looked almost certain. At the distance Warslep was keeping her- position without an;,' trouble, hut both Buchanan on Merry Roe and Wilson on Reputation were hard at their mounts. The latter did not race kindly under pressure, and finished well towards the lawn rails. Warstep was not asked lo do her best to win a. good race by three lengths. Merry Roe was third four lengths away. Warstep's victory was a •brill iant one, for she made the whole of tin? running. Reputation did not repeat his Derby form, and was evidently a bit below himself. His finishing effort was lifeless, and the racing he has done since, the spring has probably at last told its tale. Following are the limes for tli« various stages of the rare ;—Three furlongs, 40 J-s«ec : four furlongs, S3sec; five furlongs, Irmn 6 4-sse,c; six furlongs. Imin 19 2-ssec; seven furlongs, Imin 32 2-£ser; mile and a-balf. 2rnin 35 2-sser.
