The weather was fine but sultry. A great many drags were conspicuous in bearing the American flag, and When the race was won the Americans seemed to go quite mad With excitement, waving the fltarsand stripes, while -their applause was tremendous. >' In the preliminary canter Oaßimir and Albion appeared to go best, although Fox'b.aU was greatly admired. After one false start the ' horses' were 'sent on their journey., Foxhall and,,Trißtftn.fiool? the lead, but Archer puUed Tristan back and Albion became -second., Alternate running wa3 then made by Poiball and Albion, followed by Fiddler, Leon, and Albion, with Forum and Tristan mext, at»d Oasipoir last, until going round the hill about half ,» mile from home, where FoxhftU still led, with Leon second; Aiblins being. beaten. Foxh&ll and Fiddler were now attended by- Scobell, Tristan, and Albion. In this order they ran, to the distance, where Triitan joined. Foxball, and the pair ran a gnperb race Home, Foxhall, who stayed the longest, winning by a head. ' Four lengths separated the second and third horses. Fiddler was fourth, Sobbell fifth, and lloyamount «ixth. Forum seventh, Aiblins eighth, Castu- j n«la ninth, and Leon last. Time, 3mm 17 sec. The betting at the outset was 2 to 1 against JToxhalL THE PAST RACING SEASON. The racing statistics for the season 1880-1881, bb compiled by the Evening Star's sporting contributor '" Pegasus," are|as under :— Table Showing the Number op Race Meetings held in 'each Province, and the amount of added , money 1 given by the Jockey Clubs : -

The total value of the stakes run for is not given in the above list, the sweepstakes forming part of many of the prizes not being taken into calculation. There is an increase over the previous season of twenty-nine meetings and L 4,879 in added money. Auckland Province has dispossessed Otago of the lead, and now heads the list. Canterbury is again third, but runs Otago very close.' The only other change in respective positions is that Westland has passed Taranaki. Eygry Province shows an increase except Taranaki, which has fallen off to the extent of about L9O in stakes. ITablb Showing tub App':d Money given by the Principal Jockey Clubs in eacii Province, the largest amount J[L2,620) at a single meeting being giveu by the Canterbury Jockey Club at their spring Fathering, aad the next largest (L 1,950) by the Dunedin Jockey Club at their principal meeting :—

The majority of the clubs show an increase in their stakes, especially the Hawke's Bay Jockey Club, which— taking the Steeplechase meeting as promoted by them — have nearly doubled their stakes since the previous season. Waver-ley-Waitotara and Reef ton also show a consideiable advance. Of those that have fallen off the most noticeable are Patca, which gave just half of the previous season's amount ; Waerenga-a-hika, LlB2 less than before; and Timaru Ll9O less. Table Showing the Winnings in Stakes of tho*o owneru who have won over £500 during tho teason :—: —

This leaves about L 20.000 divided among innumerable smaller winners; Mr Walters owes his high position mainly to Libeller and Billingsgate, and the Hon. R. Campbell runs him close with the winnings of Sir Modred and Somnus. Mr Stead comes third with just about the same amount as he secured the previous season. Messrs Lance and Robinson have improved the position of their stable, thanks to Natator's and part of Foul Play's winnings, but Mssrs Mason and Vallance have fallen off from top place to fifth— in fact their stable was all to pieces with the exception of the useful Randwick. Mr P. Butler is again well up, by the aid of Luna and The Agent, and Mr Lunn has improved considerably on last season. Three unusually high-placed .names are the next on the list 5i but Mr C. Redwood's winnings are all duo to Sir George's victories. Mr T. George's figures are made up of small stakes, but he has very much more to his credit than the previous season ; while Mr M 'Donald's almost entirely representhisshareofFoulPlay'swinnings. Mrßowe and Mr Lennard again take prominent places, and Mr Prince's Sydney-bred colts Hilarious and Sir Garnet put him also in a prominent position. Mr G. M'Lean and his' partner Sir Hercules Robinson have come through very fairly, considering that Lady Emma did not run till the season was far advanced. Mr Horsford did not meet with as much success as he deserved; the remainder are considerably' higher up than usual. Those which have fallen out of the list of important winners ( since the previous season are Mr R. Ray, Mi H. Goodman, Mr A. J. Keith, Mr E. Cutts, and Mr R. M'lvor. Table Showing the Horses which have wou L2OO or over in stakes :— ,

Le Loup, singularly enough, heads the list with exactly the same amount as Betrayer secured top place with the previous season, but all the big chestnut's wins were secured at the Canterbury spring meeting. The names of Ma'ta, Chancellor, Soukar, Hornby, Vampire, Grey Momus, Camballo, Lara, and Numa disappear as big winners ; two of these having left the country, while the rest appear to have lost all form. Randwick has improved his position wonderfully, rising from Ll6O to his present figure. Sir Modred is well to the front, thanks to his victories in the Canterbury Derby, Dunedin Cup, and Timaru Cup. Foul Play has slightly improved on his previous figures, and Natator has jumped, up from nothing to over LI, OOO. Sir George's good total is more than half due to his Wanganui Cup and Flying Handicap successes. Mr Walters's Libeller and Billingsgate have both increased the money they secured for their owner ; while Luna has nearly quadrupled her previous season's winnings, and The Agent has also brought more money to Mr P. Butler. The money opposite the name of Somnus is made up by his victories in the Dunedin and Christchurch Champagne Stakes. Lady Emma did the new Otago stable a good turn by her two successes at Cliristchurch. Clarence and Yatapa have greatly improved their positions, while Matau is a new name in the list of big winners. Hi, *?ious has won almost exactly the same amount as he did when a two-year-old ; but Sailor Boy is another novice on metropolitan racecourses. Atlantic has had a lot of work to do to win his stakes, but King Quail has just retained his former position; while the next five all show a considerable increase. La Mode's position is accounted for by her win in the Welcome Stakes, and the rest require no comment except Dan, who commenced the season in hack races, was suddenly found to be capable of better things, but never came up to the extravagant expectations of some of his partisans,

Table showing tiik Alphabetical Order, the number I of times that the best-known horses haya started, tho position they have run into, and the money they have won :—

I Of the above a few won additional races, but were disqualified on various ground*, Gilderoy

won LIOO in a match against Harold ; Lillipee LIOO against Dandy; Our Pony L2OO against Native Cat.
