Foxhall(?) .. •• •• 1 Haras de Chamant's eh c Tristan, by Hermit-Thrift 2 Count F. de Lagrange's b c Albion by Consul— The Abbess .. .. •• •• 3 Concerning the above telegraphed account of the result of the great French race, there appears very good reason to conclude that an error has occurred in the transmission of the winner's name. We have searched the list of entries, which were made two years ago, and find that IToxhall was not nominated for the race— in fact neither Mr Keene nor Mr Lorillard had a horse in ifc The names of the second and third horses came through correctly, Tristan being the property of the Chamant Stud, whose horses often run in the name of M. Lefevre ; while Albion belongs to Count de Lagrange. Tristan won four races last season, worth about L 190 0; Albion ran six times without scoring a win.
