This ib a startling statement: but as mentioned yesterday all lines that can be drawn froui public running point to the excellence of Minting. Not only had his sire, Lord Lyon, proved a failure at the stud up to the period of being visited by Mint Sauce, but he was, I am assured, at that time in a sadly crippled condition, and great, indeed, is the lottery of racehorse breeding, Should Minting and Saraband meet in the Chnmpagne Stakes at Doncaster — they are engaged together at York also — the annafe of even that celebrated stake will afford no parallel to the excitement created by such a stirring encounter. After considerable experience of moderate racehorses it has been Mr Vyner's fortune to own a colt (The Lambkiu) capable of winning the St. Leger, and to follow that up by bringing out in the next season a two-year-old that, if the estimate formed of him by experienced people be well founded, may turn out a second Plenipotentiary. I hope they are correct in their suppo- ' sition, and that like "Plenipo," Minting may win the Derby, and meet no such fate as befell Mr Batson's celebrated horse in the St. Leger.
