AUSTRALIAN.

Mr P. Glenifiter wus not allowed to ride as an amateur at the Adelaide raoes held in honour of the young English princes, The onoa celebrated steeplechaser Prodigfrns

fell dead on June 18th while being ridden by Mr Calvert to the Melbourne hounds. Hi* first win was in 1873 in a Maiden Steapleohase, and he subsequently won the A.J.0., Great; Metropolitan, V.R.O. Autumn, Kyneton, and Melbourne Hunt Steeplechases. Ho was by Panic out of a Morris Dancer mare. " Augur " thinks that Mr Barnard's handicap for the Melbourne Gup will give pretty general satisfaction. In a lengthy review of the list, down to the weight of 7st 71b, he prefers the ohanoeß of Snwarrow, Lord Burghley, Odd Triok, Falmouth, and Venom. He speak* very highly of Sir Modred, but doea not take his chance into consideration as yet, the horse not being there. On the declaration of the weights some speculation was indulged hi, but Waterloo was the only horse backed for much, 10,600 to 400 being taken about him hi one wager. Monmouth and Hesperian are the best favourites at 100 to 5 eaoh, bnt several others have been supported. The following are quotations :— MELBOURNE CUP. 100 to 5 agst Monmouth 100 — 5 Hesperian 100 — 4 Venom 100 _ i -— Henchman 100 — 4 The Wandering Jew 100 — 4 Darebin 100 —4 — — Lord Burghley 100 —4 — — Spinningdale 100 — 4 Nautilus 100 — 3 Tourmaline ' 100 — 8 Royal Maid 100 — 3 Orient j 100 —3 — — Savanaka 100 — 3 Progress THE V.R.C. DERBY 6 to 1 agst Monmouth 7 — 1 Darebin 10 — 1 Spinningdale 10 — 1 Nautilus 10 —1 — - Somerset 12 — 1 The Duke. MARIBYRNONG PLATE. 100 to 4 agst Magnet 100 — 4 Fryingp&n 100 — 4 Kalo 100 — 4 Segenhoe 100 —4 — ~ Lionara, Borney Winters, one of the oldest jockeys in Australia, died in Lauuceeton a few days since. Over a quarter of a century ago Winters rode for the Messrs Lord and Field," and for the hfcfH he steered Strop to victory when the son of Fanio won the Lannoeston Champion Race. Result, Welcome Jack, and Lowlander have ben scratched for the Melbourne Gup. ' Mr P. G. Dixon challenges any of the imported American trotters to compete against his horse Wanderer for any sum up to £500 a-side. " Martindale," of Town and Country, inter, viewed the Hon. J. White's Musket foal Martini-Henry on his arrival in Sydney, and Bays :— " His appearanoe impressed me very favourably. He is the stoutest seven-month foal that I have ever seen. He has a very neat head (if we ezoept the ears, which are rather long) small muzzle, good neck, with plenty of room in the gullet, strong, short back, well ribbed, and a splendid tet of legs. With a few such productions as this I think the New Zealand Stud Company should prove a great buocess, and may think themselves graoed with more than an ordinary share of luok in having snob, a eire as Mustek, whose stock are at the present time running well in England." The following weights have been issued for the Hawkesbury and Metropolitan Handioapa : HAWKESBURY GRAND HANDICAP, One mile and a-half.

A comparative table in the Australasian of the weights for fcho three big handicaps shows that as a matter of course oeveral horses are very differently treated by the bandioappera. For instance, Oacary has 121b more in the Hawkabury than iD the Onp ; The Pontiff the came; Wandering Jew,,l3lb; Hesperian, 151baj Elastic, ' 121b ; Creawiek, 13lb i Dundreary, 141b } Waxy, 141b; Milbrudalo, 171b j and Zulu, 161b3.

"Tout Cela," the new editor of the Melbourne Sportsman, is writing iti a very evratio way when he talks about Xroquois having won the Aecot gold vase for Mr Lorillard ; also about Petronel running second in last year's Derby, when as everybody plight to know ho aww ran

Joe Thompson has laid £20,000 to £100 in one bet against Monmouth fot the Derby and an outsider for the Cup, or the good odda of 200 to 1 for the double event. The bet of £25,000 to £100 has been laid against Nautilus and Chatterer for the Derby and Cup.

A welsher at tho late Bendigo raoes waa captured after a chase to the railway-station and landed in the look- up, to answer a charge, of obtaining money under false pretences. ENGLISH AND FOBEIGN.

F. Aroher w again well away fco the front in the way of winning mounts, bis soore np to May 14th shewing 42 wins eat of 99 raoes; C. Wood stands at 29 out of 93 ,• G. Fordham at 16 oat 67 ', T. Goater at 11 out of 48. Archer won nine raoes at Chester meeting ont of 16, and was aeoond in six ; being unplaced in only one. Peter has been purchased by Sir J. D. Astley for 5000 guineas. Tadoaßter, who had been after last year's Bend Or difficulty been christened Bend Or 11., has had his old name restored to him by Mr Bymill. Robert the Devil heads the handicap for the Manchester Gup of 2000 soys wfyh 9»t 121b, the weight whioh Isonomy won under last year, Bend Or has 9it 71b ; Petronel, 7ut 91b. Three of Mr Ten Broeck's newly-purchased American colt 8 have arrived in England. The sum of £15,000 is being expended on improving the grand stand accommodation at Ascot.

The following is a full description of the race for the One Thousand- Guineas, the bare details oi whioh appeared in our last issue :— Betting : 6 to 5 on Thebais, 4 to 1 agat Bal Gal, 100 to 14 agst Lucy Glitters, 100 to 7 each agst Thora and Myra, 33 to 1 agst Wandering Nan, and 50 to 1 each agst any other. The 11 saddled in thee Birdcage left for the post in capital time, wherd they were joined by Bal Gal and Mazurka, and when they sfcretohed across the couree Stchaistia took her place on the right of Moll D*vi«, with the favourite, Lucy Glitters, and Thora well in the centre, at»d Marie Therese, Mazurka, Myra, and Wandering Nun on the left. Only one break away occurred, and when the word was given the lot fot well away, the line being broken by Moll Davis at once taking a clear lead, and the rear was soon occupied by Metoora and the Russian, the latter of whioh became a conspicuous whipper-in when the first quarter of a mile had been traversed. Returning to the front rank, Moll Davis was attended aoross the flat by Thora and the favourite, with Luoy Glitters on the one side and Myra and Mazurka on the other, Bal Gal lying in the heels of the latter pair. At the T. Y. O. winning post Greaves wai to be seen with his whip up toStchnistia, and as ! they approached the bushes Marie Therese was no sooner in difficulties than Snowdon beoamo hard upon Lucy Glitters. When fairly on the top of the hill,, the long lead that Moll Davis bad held was diminished, and in the descent she was in turn passed by Thora and the favourite, to whom Bnooeeded Myra and Mazurka, with Bal Gal and Wandering Nun now holding most prominent places of the remainder, but both I Myra and Mazurka were well beaten before reaching the bottom, when Bal Gal had pulled her way into third place. The bold front Lord Falmouth'sdlly had shown coming down the hill was extinguished as soon as the ascent was made, and from the foot of the hill the favourite began to tread her way to Thora, who proved such a formidable opponent to Thebais that Fordham had fairly to ask the latter opposite the Stand. Answering gamely, she, however, caught Thora in the last fifty yards, and in the end landed a pretty race by a neck, Bal G<il being eased up, finished a bad third, just clear of Wandering Nun, next to whom came Angelina, Myra, and Luoy Glitters, all in a cluster, with Marie Therese and Moll Davis next, and Napftli and Stchaistia in the rear, the latter being last throughout. Time, Imm 50 see. Value of the stakes £4,750. It will be noticed that Windsor, the winner of tho Chester Cup, is a half- sister to Musket. At Ipswich races Brown Bess, the daughter of Musket that recently won the Great Metropolitan Stakes, got beaten by Danum by a short head in the Suffolk Handicap. She waa carrying 9ab to the winner's Bit 51b. At th« eale of the Jade M. Fould'a hones, the highest price realised was that paid for the three- y«ar old Aquiliu, by M. Balensi, namely, 88,000fr. M.. Let&irre gave 32,000fr for B6*fce aChagrins, who doubtless will develop into a matron quite worthy of Chamant, judging from her excellent career upon the, turf. 30,000fr were laid down by M. Donon for th« disappoint ingLaFlandrie— a figure at whioh that mare ma? be thonght to have gone dear. Seigneur 11., a two-year-old, by Uhlan and Miss Stookland, was invested upon by Baron de Soubeyran for the nice cum of 27,500^; while the same gentleman also made a costly purohaaa in Sonnet (18,300fr). and, indeed, was on« of the chief patrons of the sale, often ranniog his bids to five figures (iv fr»noa, of course). The total receipts were 333,750fr. At the Newmarket Second Spring meeting on May 17, 18, and 19, Archer scored 6ix more wins in addition to his score given above ; Wood scored four more ; and Fordham two more, Loriikrd'a Iroquois walked over for the Bar. well Stakes, and Mr Brewer's Robert the Devil walked ovor for the Eosebery Plate. The Breeders' Plate of 400 sove wap won by Mr T. Walker's Purple and Scarlet. The Newmarket Spring Handicap of 300 soys fell to Mr Crawfurd's Elf King (Sat 6ib), with Oommaudant (Bst 51b) second, Kahleborn (7st 61b) third. Th« Payne Stakes of 500 boys, for three-year-olds, waa won by Mr H. E Beddington'o Monarch, beating pAragon, Spring, and nine others. The Two-year-old Plate waa won by Prince Soltykoff's Kin* Frost.
