St. Gatien had the. heavy weight of Sat 101b On him in the Cajsarewitch. It seemed out of all proportion to put so much on one of the dead-heaters for. the Derby, when the other (Harvester) had only Bst 21b, and when the conditions of the raoeapecify that the St. Leger winner shall carry enly Bst 41b. However, St. Gatien pulled through successfully, and he has thuß surpassed the performance of Robert the Devil, who won in 1880 with Bst 61b, and of Foxhall, who won in 1881 with 7st 121b. St. Gatien was third from tho top of the list of weights, Corrie Roy conceding him only 71b, and Florence 61b. Polemic, who ran second, carried 6st ; Archidue, who ran third, Bat 51b. In the Cambridgeshire Stakes, to be run on Tuesday next, St. Gatien will have to carry with his penalty 9at 131b, and it seems scarcely possible that he can win the double under such circumstances. , The rich BadSn Baden Jubilee Prize was carried off, as will be seen iv another column, by an English owner, in Mr Hammond, with his mare Florence. The figures of the leading English jockeys up to August 23 were as follows :— ■
