This is the first Middle Park Plate, the orack two-year-old race, that Lord Falmouth has ever won, and singularly enough he did not secuieit with hiß most successful two-year-old of the geason, but with a youngster that, aa far as I can remember, had not previously run. Busybody's breeding, is, however, good enough for anything, she being by » winner of the Two » Thousand Guineas and St Leger out of a winner of the Ono Thousand Guineas and Oaks.
Royal Arch had no performances to his credit up to the time of our latest files. The Adelaide filly is one of the season's fly on, Bhe having won the Newmarket July fctake* of 1690 soys, and thereby incurred a 71b penalty for thiß race.
Busybody is unfortunately not entered for next year's Derby, but is engaged in the Ow Thousand Guineas, Oaks, and St LsgftT. Royal Arch is in the Two Thousand Guineas, Derby, and St Leger ; while the Adelaide filly is entered for the One Thousand Guinea, Derby, Oaks, and St Leger. The following is the pedigree of winner »

His principal performances are too well known to require repetition, but I may note that ha made a dead beat of this race last year with Thebais, and walked over, for it after the stakes had been divided. Singularly enough he on that occasion beat the St. Leger winner, Dutch Oven ; while now he has not only beaten her again, but has also defeated this year's iSt, Leger winner in Ossian. Tristan's latest per. formance prior to this was to win the valuable French race the Grand Prix de Deauville with the tremendous weight of lOat lllbup.
