■ The Chief, who was sold after the Hastings meeting, will in future be tiained by J. Cameron, at Feilding. The price paid for the old hunter is stated to be 200gns. If this is correct, it appears to be full value for tlie old plodder.
.The Eclipse Stakes, the first "of the English ten thousand pound races, will be run on July 19; The entries' include the Derby winner, Tagalie, and the Ascot Gold Cup winner, Prince Palatine, and the meeting between the pair should provide the race of the season.

The list to include the names of celebrated horses and mares which, in accordance with Rule 65, may not be made use of again Such list will be published . periodically."
Sol, who broke down bo badly in the Great Northern Steeplechase, has evidently made a speedier partial recovery than was anticipated, for his owner was able to ship 'him home to Cambridge last week,.
