YEARLING PURCHASES OVERSEAS DIFFICULTIES RESTRICTING OF COMPETITION [BY TTXI'.GKAPn —OWN CORRESPONDENT] HAWERA, Wednesday There is unlikely to be the usual large nun her of buyers from Australia for the Trentham yearling sales this year owing to the difficulty in transferring money out. of the eountry, according to tlio Melbourne trainer, J. Fryer, formerly of Hawprn. Jn a recent letter 10 relatives here. Fryer states that a client of his mado application for a sum, but no more than £.IOO would be made available, a paltry amount for a sportsman who was likely to have exceeded the four-figure mark in his purchases. Fryer has not, had many horses racing in recent weeks, but be expects soon to be busy again, as most of his big team is again jn commission. El Golea lias recovered from his shooting injury and has rejoined the active brigade. Although Fryer has not enjoyed much success with horses carrying his own livery in recent months, he has high hopes for 1011, and mentions the success in the saddle being enjoyed by his son-in-law, ,N. Crighton, who won the chief event at Adelaide on December 23. ST. LEGER AT THIRSK BAHRAM COLT TURKMAN WINS Viewed against the background of the war, in ils many hazards and rapidly changing fortunes, the racing season of 1010 must 'be voted a fair success, slates the London Sportiiic Life of November 25. If the sport has to cr.'itiinie lo improvise in 10 11, we shall make a better job of it. The story of illf St. I.etrcr, which was run at Th;rsk on Saturday, November 23, is typical of ibo makeshifts th« racing authorities in England have been forced to adopt. When there was no hope of the classic being run al !>nrasler, a Hurst Park St. Leger was • arranged. This had t" he cancelled, and a substitute «lakcs was fixed for Newmarket in mid-October. This al«o went by the board, but, perseverance was" rewarded, and Thirsk ; staged the last of the classics on the last day , of the campaign. Evorv enclosure at Thirsk was packed ; with enthusiastic North Country sportsmen, ; and the cheers that greeted Turkhan, ridden ! bv G. .Richards, were morn than a pale imij tat ion of the "Yorkshire roar." ' There were onlv six runners, and (he Aga ! Khan provided first and second horses. Turk- ! ban, tho winner, is by Bahrain from ThereI sina, and the second horse. Stardust, is by TTvperion from Sister Stella. Stardust was ' ridden by IT. Wragg. The third colt was Lord j Roseberv's Hippius b.v Hyperion from Edgelaw, and ridden by E. Smith. The distance I of the race was a. mile and seven furlongs.
