Lorillard, and raced in that country as a two-year-old, winning four races out of six in which he competed. He was then shipped to England, where At three years he ran in seven races, but • scored only one victory. This was in the Newmarket Handicap of 577 soys, and in none of the other events did he gain even a situation. At four years he ran eleven times, but only gained a place twice till his last appearance for thfe year. By this time he had been sold for £50!) to Lord Ellesmere, who won with him tho Great Shropshire Handicap of 912 aovs, but he ' b4d only Gst 91b to carry. This season Wallenstein won the Liverpool Spring Cup of 800 soys prior to his present , victory. PEDIGREE OP THE WINNER.

Morgan), Morden (Wyatt), Gareth (Lemaine), Satrap (Morley), Real Grit (Giles), Psycho (Groves) also ran. At the start the betting was 9 to 4 agst > Bruce, 5 to 2 agst Shotover, 6 to 1 agst Quicklime, 10 to 1 agst Dutch Oven, 12 to 1 agst Executor, 12 to 1 against Sachem, 14 to 1 agst Pursebearer, 14 to 1 agst Fenelon, 25 to 1 agst Harden, 25 to 1 agst Gerald, and 60 to 1 agst Gareth. , Just as the moving mass of humanity had been cleared with some difficulty from the course, the 14 competitors emerged from the saddling- paddock. Neither Gerald nor Sachem ■ joined in the preliminary canter, both getting saddled on the far side of the course. Gerald , was fractious alongside his stable companion , before the field congregated. After a couple of breaks away Mr M'George succeeded in starting the competitors in beautiful order, the American representative Sachem and Gerald being specially fortunate in getting off well and in a good position near the rails. In a few moments, however, Real Grit dashed to the front, only to be headed by Marden and Bruce, , who, going at their hardest, were soon three or four lengths ahead of Pursebearer, Real Grit, Sachem, Quicklime, and Shotover, lying off in company with Dutch Oven and ■ Satrap on the outside. This order was maintained throughout the Furzes, without any material change ; the _ pace being so good that when they emerged into full view again Gerald had evidently had enough of it. His stable com- • panion (Sachem), on the other hand, was still holding a prominent position, going with masterly resolution — so much so thcit before reaching Tattenham Corner the backers of Lonl- , lard's horse were extremely jubilant. The son of , War Dance was going well within himself. That crucial test of soundness and stamina, the incline from Tattenham Corner into the straight, soon altered the complexion of affairs. Executor, who had been lying well in the ruck, was disposed of, and then in turn Pursebearer, Fenelon, and Gareth were done with, and Marden and Bruce ran wide at the bend, and so let up Shotover, Quicklime, and Dutch Oven, the last-named triad a couple of hundred yards from^ home, and Marden and Bruce shortly afterwards cried a go ; then Quicklime for a few strides had the best of struggle, but Cannon, biding his effort with Shotover to a nicety, won handsomely at the finish by three-quarters of a length. Sachem finished like a steamengine, overhauled the puiled-up favourite in the last 50 yards, and secured the by no means barren honour of a place by a head. Bruce came in fourth, Gareth fifth, Pursebearer sixth, Dutch Oven seventh, Fenelon eighth, Gorald ninth, Real (hit tenth ; the last being Satrap and Psycho. I'he time was 2 mm, 45 3-sth sec,
