DERBY REMINISCENCES, Tbe Buoceaa of Galtee More recalls that when hie grandalre, Bend 'Or was vlc> torlous In tbe some race he waa the sub* jeot of a proteab which created a considerable sensation at tbo time. Tbe reason of the protest waa ft etateuiend made to Mr 0, Blenton, trainer and part ownor of the Bedondoolt, Robarb the Devil, by a groom who had beefi In tbe employ of the Duke of Westminster, thob Bend 'Or was not really Band 'Or at all, .bat another colt called Tarfoaeter. It transpired at the loqnlry that two 1 of the ebnd matrons in ths Katon stud— Rouge Robb and Clemenoe — had foaled obeatnnb oolts bo Doncister wlthia a few hodra of each o'tiior, and these cobs (both In their foalhood very ranch alike) were ohrlotened respectively Bend 'Or and Tad- | caster. Tbo eroom already nientloned ] averred that the oolts had been mixed a few hours after their birth, and that the colb afterwards named Bend' 'Or wai really the aon of Clemenoe and not of Koage Uoie, as ofihlally registered at Tattersall'a ; and that Tadoaster was •. Ronge Rose's bod, Tbe head groom and the Dake of Westminster gave contrary evidence, and tha protest was very properly dismissed, The subject would nob be worth ro ailing were 10 not that thn snbieqaento: *erf&rmances of the relatives of both animals wonld almost lead one to tblnk that after all the ex- groom may have been right, and the Dake and bis bead groom (though, of course, unknowingly) wrong. Of the two oolts already named Bend 'Or was a champion, Tadcaster the veriest duffer. A fall brother to Bend 'Or, a colt oalled Garb 'Or, was heavily engaged, bob was utterly worthiest, and Koyal Rose never threw off a good one except Band 'Or. Clemenoe, on the other band, gave birth to Sindlway, a filly who was the bead of her year, and was also Che mother of some otber good horees, By a straDge coincidence, daughters of the two mareß In question were imported to New Zaaland for stud purposes, It U only neoesaary to cay that Meraey, the daughter of Clemenoe, gave na onr great i Carbine end Carnage, while Rosette, Royal Rose's descendant, threw two moderates in Muck Rose and Escutcheon, and ooloDials will at once award the palm to tbe Clemence linn. THB NEW ZEALAND COP. Hawke's Biy Is well represented In the New Zealand Cnp of 1897, Oat of the 59 noiulaetione 17 are from owneia in this | dlatriob. Tbe Hon. J. D. Ormond has j the latHCßt Dambor of entries with Daunt- j lesa, Defiance, Mars, Sir Lancelot, and Defiant. The latter eeeraa abont the raoßt promising amongst the lot, and may prove one of the beßb in tbe stable in the spring, The defeat of St. Conon in Auckland is taken by some as showing that Sapphire's eon possesses a weak spot somewhere, bub unless I am very muoh mistaken we will nee St. Conou bo muoh better advantage as a three- year-old bhan when he ran la nursery handicaps. Should he train on all right St. Couon will be one of the hardest horses to beat. This la Mr Lowiy's only representative in the Cup. Mr George Hunter has entered Searchlight and GlrofU (Trenton— Glrolid). The latter Is doing steady work at Hastings, and appoars quite sound. The Trenton filly has no far only been Been out in a oouple of juvenile raoes, In which she did not shape extra well, but with age may Improve, She has breeding to teoommeod her certainly, for Girofla'g dam (slßtor to Strathmore's dam Oulda) olalma Yattendon aa sire from Gulnare by Little John. Mr S. H, Gollan is represented by
Tli 6 and VPafceljfl (Dreadnoupht-Lsdy Florin). The foJsa of the Medallion geldlnfl to the antnmn was moat dlsappoiaUoft while Wakelyn <?W nothing to enow that he vCas likely to blo^'Om oat a Cup winner, , „ _ ... In addition to The &ook and WwerfltOne, Mr W. Douglas &wr nom> nated Saids (by T.orpodo-7E;»ypMllft) Amongst these Brooklet's slater would W token lor preference, though I tbinH Waterstono is a horse that haß not yet shown ns hie best form. Blaiaey'a running provei that Apremont'a son would not find the Cap distance too far, while New Forest flashed out so brilliantly for a brief period In the antnmn that If ho goes to the post fit ho will owry a good portion of looal money. Prlmnla «nd Doofjlaa oomplete the Bawkss Bay entries, Snrprisa has bean expressed at me absence of Gold Medallist ond Multiform from the Cup nomination!-, Mr Stuod being satisfied with entering only St. Cyr and Epaulet. No doubt many ownere will be pleased to sea the names of the two former absent from tho list, for In the Dpht of tbelr groat performances last year must hove frightened a cood number from making the final paymenT. apecnlatlon on the Cap has already fairly started, nlthongh the declaration of weights will not be made for some time yet. HAWKE'S BAY WINTER MEETING, • Mr Henry Is well up to time with his h&ndloapt for the F«wke'a Bay Hurdles and Steeplechase. From tho very large number of entrants In the Hurdles the probable winner takeß some ploklnff. The form shown at the North New Zealand Grand National meeting Is, of course, a snide. Annibella will be an abientet 1 , But shonld Mies Nelson be Bent down she will tra well supported for both races, and her presence will lend an additional Interest to the meeting. Outnlde competitors are always weloome, and If they are beaten, then thero 1b all thn more credit to the looal homes, In the Hurdles I dop'b think Lotion, an untried horße O7ar jnmpp, should be nuked to give weight tn Miss Nel«on and Prluoe Charlie, and 1 shall not be surprised If Connop declines tho engagement with the ioo of Soci'ivflatnr, spelng that be his Tally- Ho eoing for him in the same tbcb. At this stags I like tho ohanc»a of Mies Nslnon, The Ping. Rblno, and Flirt. In the gbeepleobune, the owner of Miss Nelson on the nooro of weights has tiothtne of wMoh to compliln Tally Ho may find Hot i*oo ranch for her over three and s-half milt", though her Auckland rnnnloe mual) bfl taken as a R llide l 0 her prbsent good torn..
