THE RACE, It was a quarter of an bour after the appointed time whea the horses reached the post, and BOine further time was cut to waste by the several breaks away that occurrfd. Eventually the flag fell to a somewhat indif. ferent Btart, and Ambassadress Rot away in advance of Bend Or, Post Obit, Preston pans, Petrouel, Foxhall, Voluptuary, Lancaster Bowman, and the Duke of Hamilton's pair. They ran thus a couple of hundred yards, when Post Obit went to the front, and settled down with the lead of Voluptuary, Foxball, Ambassadress, and Thora. these being followed by I Skipetar, Barrett, Prestonpans, Sibyl, and War Paint, while the last four were made up of i Berzencze. Peter, May Queen, and Henry George. But little change occurred as they went through the furzes, but at the top of the hill Post Obit was attended by Lancaster Bowman, the Duke of Hamilton's .pair, and Foxhall, the next batch comprising Ambassadress, Voluptuary, Barrett, and Toastmaater, and then came Prestonpans. Buchanan, Bend Or, »nd Berzencze, May Queen now being tailed off. In descending the hill Lancaster Bowman joined Post Obit, and the pair were followed round Tattenham Corner by Toaatmasfcer and Foxhall, Ambassadress, Thora, and Benzencza coming on in their heels, clear of the stable companions, Prestonpans and Buchanan, on the top side, while prominent of the remainder was Bend Or on the lower ground. Soon after crossing the road Ambassadress and Lancaster Bowman were done with, and beat a retreat, an example which wsb quickly followed by Toastmaster, Thora, and Berzeuzce, while on the other hand Henry George, Petronel, and Poter material'? improved their several positions. A qiiart^r of a mile from home Foxhe-U drew up to P^fit Obit, and the pair cams on followed by Bend Or to the Bell, where the last-namm! made his effort, and gradually obning up with Post Obit, he then headed Foxhall, drew away from the half-distancp, and won very clcvcily by a length and a-half ; a clear letgth separated the second and third. At a clear interval Petron^l was fourth, i.vat in fnrafc of Henry George, who was eased. Peter wa-3 sixth, Berzancza seventh, Buchanan eighth, Lancaster Bowman ninth, PrestonpaDS tenth, Ambassadress eleventh, Barrett twelfth, Skipefcarand May Queen next, and the absolute last was War Paint. Time by Benson's chronograph, 2 mm. 7 sec. Value of the Btakes, L 1230,
