Shotever ran three times last year, and on each occasion unsuccessfully. AfcNewmiirket, October, ' was unplaced in the Middle Park Plate, won by Kermesse, Gerald second, and Marguerite third ; ran second in the Prendergast Stakes, of, 922 aovs, won by Berwick ; and at the Houghton was unplaced in a Nursery Handicap, won by Magician. She is engaged in the Derby, Oaks, St. Leger, and other important races. Quicklime did not race last season. He is ; this season engaged in the Derby, Epsom I Grand Prize, and St. Leger. I Harden, who was a terribly high-priced yearling, being half brother to the unlucky I Abbot, has been quite as disappointing a'horso 1 to his owner as was the latter to Mr R. C. I Naylor. He ran unsuccessfully in six races, f oi< no fewer than four of which ho was second, ! a situation so often filled by the Abbot. After running unplaced to Geheimniss for the Hurls- ,' bourne Stakes at Stockbridge, he was Beoond

' to Kermesse for the July; while in his next { race, for the Ashley Stakes, at Lewes, .after. ' succumbing to Geheimniss for the second time,. I He was agam second to Carlyle ' for the 'Priory : Stakes at the same meeting! .Subsequently in the Middle Park .Plate he was beaten again by Kermesse,. being unplaced to th>t flying. filly, who gave him 41b, irrespective of the allowance for sex; but in his next encounter, for the" Dowhurat Plate, receiving the same weight from Dutch Oven, he ran the flying filly of Lord Ealmouth to a head. Marden is engaged in the Derby, Epsom Grand Prize, Grand Prix de Paris, St. Leger, and Champion' Stakes. The Two Thousand Guineas race was instituted in 1809, and it has only been four times won by fillies— namely, by Pattille,jin 1822; Crucifix, in 1840; by Pilgrimage, in 1878 ; and by Shotover in 1882. ' - - The American owners, Mr Lorillard and Mr Keene, were believed to .hold -a. pretty strong hand in this race, the formers Sachem and Gerald, and the latter's Golden Gate being woirsupported ; but they appear to'havo been nowhere; ' '' ' ' ' l " ' PEDIGRE OP THE 'WINNER.
