THE AUSTRALIAN J.C. AUTUMN GATHERING.

(By Our Australian Sporting Correspondent " Warrior.")Sydney, April 3. INTRODUCTORY REMARKS. • Two-and-twenty years ago The Pitsford carried off the first A.J.O. St. Leger,and Yatteadon the Sydney Oup. In 1859, Mr Burt (who was ' then secretary) and several other gentlemen commenced the formation of the present racecourse at Randwick. At the inauguration of the Cup the surroundings of the course were nothing more than as wretched-looking, hungry, inhospitable a place as one ever saw — nothing but barren sandhills and stunted bushes, without a blade of green grass beyond the couch and other English grasses sown on the running ground. Since Mr Clibborn came into office) Randwick racecourse has undergone vast improvement, and as soon as the new running track is formed it will bear comparison with some of the best in England, if not in Australia. In the early days I find such excellent horsemen as Holmes, Thompson, Joe Kean, Ashworth, Sam Davis, Joe Carter, Johnny Driscoll, Stanley Bishop, and Martineer riding horses to victory at Homebush. In my review of the whole of the Legers and Cups I find Hales riding second to Robin Hood in 1876, since which time he has ridden in no less than nine Legers. The following is a list of the PLACED HORSES IN PAST SYDNEY ST. LBGEBS. 1866. Mr Loader's br o The Pitsford (Thompson) Mr J Lee's eh f Gazelle (Joe Keau) , Mr Bundock's'b c Bulgimbar (Ashworth).

' Betting :' 7to 4 agst Javelin, 5 to 2 each Hamlet and Prophet, 6to 1 Dagworth, 10 to 1 Priam. \ | Hamlet led into the straight, Javelin making his effort at the same moment, but the tactics adopted | by Enderson compelled Yeomans to bring Javelin, up on the extreme outside. Nevertheless, he got on terms with Hamlet, and amtd a scene of intense) excitement the' pair ran a splendid race to the finish. Hamlet always having a little the best of it, and winning cleverly by half a length. Time, 3mia 20iseo. 1873.

The threatening weather and the fact that the Leger would be ran this year on Saturday prevented a large attendance assembling at Bandwick on the first day of the A. J.C. Autumn meeting. Victorians showed up in large numbers. Very few ladies were present on the lawn. During the afternoon the proceedings were enlivened by choice music rendered by the Permanent Artillery Band. . The following are the particulars of the principal races .— THB AUTUMN STAKES, One mile and a-half. Carlyon, 3yrs, Bst 21b ... ... (Hales) 1 Algerian, syrs,9sfc 31b ... ... (Norton) 2 Arsenal, syrs, 9st 31b ... ... (Power) 3 Dainty, 3yrs, 7st 131b ... ... (Gorry) 0 Betting : 2 to 1 on Carlyon, sto 2 agst Arse* nal, 10 to 1 bar two. Inside the three furlongs Arsenal had had enough, and, joining the beaten Dainty, Algerian followed Carlyon into the straight. When fairly on the road home Algerian made his run, but Carlyon soon stalled him off, and without being once at his top won in very hollow style by three lengths. Algerian beat Arsenal four lengths for second, and Dainty was last. Time, 2min 43sec. A.J.C. ST. LEGEB, One mile and three-quarters. Abercorn ... ... ... (T Hales) 1 The Australian Peer ... ... (Power) 2 Betting : 2to 1 on Abercorn. Commencing to rise the hill Abercorn began to increase the rate of travelling, a movement which his opponent immediately responded to, and the former, settling down to race, shot past the five furlongs his own length ahead. The Peer drew up to his girths at the sheds, and remained there till well within the rails. When fairly on the way home Abercorn drew right clear again, and appeared to be winning easily, but Power sat down on The Peer, and responding gamely, Haleß was compelled to do ditto at the half distance. Here both were hard at it, but Abercorn never once shortened his stride, and, despite his opponent's brilliant and determined run, won all out by a length and a-half. Time, 3min 51sec. THB DONOASTEK HANDICAP. 1 For all horses. Second horse, 75sovs. One mile Ben Bolt, 6yrs, 9sc 51b .. ... (Sanders) 1 Lonsdale, 2yrs, 7st9lb ... ... (0 Moore) 2 The Queen, 4yrs, 7st 101b ... ... (Phoenix) 3 Also ran: Cairo (syrs, Bst 61b), Centaur (aged, Bst 21b), Lava (3yrs, 7st 121b), Soldier's Wind (aged, 7st 101b), Kingfish (4yrs, 7st 71b), Solo (syrs, 7st 51b), Southerly Buster (3yrs, 7st 31b), Timbrel, late Drummer Boy (4yrs, 7st 31b), Lady Godiva (aged, 7st), Hugo, late Harold (4yrs, 6st 121b, and 21b over), Puzzle (3yrs, 6st 101b), Delegate (3yrs, 6st 81b), T.

Betting : 2to 1 agst Ben Bolt, 6to 1 Amina, 7 to 1 Lava, 8 to 1 Centaur and Southerly Buster, 10 to 1 The Queen, Rosebud, Lonsdale, and T. W., from 12 to 20 to 1 others. Ben Bolt won as he liked by two lengths from Lonsdale, which came very fast from the distance. The Queen was third, followed by Timbrel, Centaur, Bonnie Doon, Lava, Cairo, Fleeto, and Amina in that order, the last to finish being Lady Godiva, Soldier's Wind, and Puzzle. Time, lmin 43|sec. EASTER MONDAY'S RACING. The attendance at Randwick on Cup day far exceeded all expectations, upwards of 30,000 people paying for admission to the course. The betting was very heavy on the Two-mile Handicap, Acme and Ben Bolt having a heap of money on them. The fair sex patronised the lawn to such an extent that there was very little room for walking. During the day a scene took place which I trust I shall not see repeated for some time to come. Mr Joe Kean, one of our oldest jockeys, and who has for many years followed the business of public starter, and being at present the wielder of the flag at Tattersall's, Rosehill, Liverpool, and Canterbury Park Race meetings, gained admission to the saddling paddock with a trainer's ticket. When asked by Mr T. S. Clibborn, the secretary, to produce the same, he refused to do so, and unfortunately for himself, used anything but polite language. The* official having reported Eean's conduct to the committee, he was ordered out of the enclosure. " New Warrior," of the Sydney Daily Telegraph, writes: — '* At Randwick racecourse yesterday, prior to the racing commencing, Mr J. Eean was brought before the committee for gaining admission to the saddling paddock on presentation of a trainer's ticket, and refusing to comply with the demand for the name of the trainer who gave him the pasteboard, he was ordered out of the enclosure. The authorities had sufficient reason for acting as they did, but it so happens that Mr Kean is one of the oldest of Australian jockeys, besides being starter for such clubs as those of Rosehill, Canterbury Park, Liverpool, and Tattersall's, and as such he ought to have been in receipt of an honorary ticket. In Victoria and all other places this privilege would have been granted him, and the general opinion is that the same courtesy should have been extended by the A. J.C." At noon the day's programme commenced with THB FLYING- HANDICAP. Six furlongs. Mitrailleuse, 6yrs, 9st ... ... (B Williams) 1 Lava, 3yrs, Bst ... ... (T Hales) t Zoeo, aged, 6st 41b and 31b over ... (Doolan) f Also ran : Yellow Jacket (4yrs, Bst 91b), Alma <4yrs, Bst 61b), Cairo (syrs, Bst 61b), Centaur (aged, Bst 41b), Aristocrat (4yrs, Bst 21b), Epiourean (3yrs, 7st 101b), Nonsense (4yrs, 7st 81b), Timbrel (4yrs, 7st 61b), Lady. Marion (4yrs, 7st), Kosebud (syrs, 6st 121b), Butterfly (4yrs, 6st 10 b); Athlete (3yrs, 6st 21b). Betting : 3tol v. Epicurean, stol v. Mitrailleuse, 6 to 1 v. Centaur, 7 to 1 each v. Lava snd Timbrel, 8 to 1 v. Cairo, 10 to 1 v. others. Nonsense made her run at the distance, as did also Zoeo, and' Lava coming later on, a magnificent race home resulted. Nonsense cried a go first, and the others shot past the judge's box abreast, the verdict being in favour of Mitrailleuse by a head, while Zoeo and Lava ran a dead heat for second. Athlete was fourth, followed in order by Nonsense, Aristoorat, Yellow Jacket, and Centaur, the last two being Cairo and Alma. Tune, lmin 16Jsec. Then followed the most important races of the afternoon :— CHAMPAGNE STAKES, Six furlongs. Volley, by Mußket (imp)— Lady Vivian (imp), 101b penalty ... ... ... (Hales) 1 1 ady Betty, by St. Albans (imp)— Pardon. 71b penalty ... ... ... (O'Brien) 2 Prnl Shell, by Musket (imp)— Pearl Ash (imp), 71b penalty ... ... ... (F Smith) 3 Wy combe, by Maribymong— Guelder Bose , (Power) 0 Bonnie Spec, by Bobinson Cnißoe— Lady Spec (imp) ... ... ...(Simmons) 0 Betting : sto 4 agst Volley, 2 to 1 Lady Betty, 5 to 1 Pearl Shell, 6 to 1 Bonnie Spec, 10 o 1 Wycombe. As they turned their heads for home the whip

came oat on Lady Betty, as it did on Pearl Shell, and both being, beaten, Volley drew away with but a very slight effort, and won easily by two lengths from Lady Betty, which beat Pearl Shell three lengths. Wycombe was a length off, fourth, and two lengths in front of Bonnie Spec. Time, lmin 17|sec. THE SYDNEY CUP. Two miles. The Australian Peer, by Darebin— Stookdove, 3yrs, Bst 61b ... ... ... (Power) 1 Algerian, by Goldßbrough— Algeria, syra, Bsfc Sib (Norton) 2 Acme, by Cheater— Princess Maud, 4yrs, Bst 81b (Hales) 3 Also ran :— Oarlyon (3yrs, Bst 101b) O&kleigh (3yrs, Bst 101b), Ben Bolt (6yra, Bst 41b, and 71b penalty), The Nun (4yrs, 7st 41b), Lady Godiva (aged, 6st 121b), The Queen (4yrs, 6st 101b) Touchstone (3yrß, 6st 61b). Betting : 5 to 2 agst Acme, 4 to 1 The Nun, 5 to 1 The Australian Peer, 6 to 1 each Oakleigh, Ben Bolt, and Carlyon, 12 to 1 each The Queen and Algerian, 20 to 1 the others. Ben Bolt, whom Sanders was already hard at, Algerian, and The Australian Peer on the outside entered the straight in close company and waited on by Acme, while The Nun and Touchstone joined the beaten division. When they were fairly settled within the rails Ben Bolt held out signals of distress, and immediately The Peer was seen in the van. With Ben Bolt's retirement came Acme's run, and Algerian was also seen chasing The Australian Peer in obedience to his rider's call, but the efforts of both were fruitless, and Power driving the latter along, drew gradually away, and won amidst great cheering by three lengths. Algerian was second, three lengths in front of Acme, and Ben Bolt was two lengths away, fourth. Then came Touchstone, four lengths off and six in advance of The Nun, while Oakleigh, Lady Godiva and The Queen finished in that order, and Carlyon was last, and pulled up very lame. Time, 3min 32£seo.

In the Maiden Hack race at Wellington certain clever people who came from the top end of the Wairarapa Valley suffered a severe and sudden shock. They had "a little 'oss" in the Maiden Hacks i which could do the job easily, and they came down to back him. His coat was ruffled up, and other precautions were taken to disguise his identity. He got a good start and was licked all the way (N. Z. Beferee.) Princess Helena, half-sister to Lochiel, ran her maiden race at the Town and Suburban Hack meeting, but, although looking fit and carrying a good lump of her owner's money in the Taradale Handicap, she was done with ia the first mile, and finished last with the light impost of 6st 71b. 111-luck still pursues Captain Russell and his trainer, Edwards. On Saturday morning when giving Falconet her winding-up gallop,, previous to taking her to Waipukurau', she pulled up lame and had to be scratched for her engagements. Had Falconet kept all right she must have been very handy at the finish of the Waipukurau Cup. Mr W. Weston, who left this town for Australia shortly after the New Zealand Cup fiasco, is, I am pleased to learn from a gentleman recently returned from Australia, not likely to sink into oblivion. His fellow metallicians on the other side have so far assisted him towards a fresh start in his profession that, with his ability and energy, he was enabled to score a good win or two at the V.R.C. meeting, and ho is now, comparatively speaking, on his feet again. (Melbourne Sportsman.) A case affecting Rosehill racecourse was before the Supreme Court at Sydney on the 25th ult., the sporting banker Holt, now undergoing a sentence for embezzlement of the Bank of New Zealand funds, being the cause. The trustees in his assigned estate, part of which was an interest in the Rosehill racecourse, brought a suit for specific performance, Holt under deed of assignment having agreed to transfer to them for the benefit of his creditors. The court granted the decree asked for, and Holt applied for an injunction to restrain the trustees from transferring to the Bank of New Zealand. This his Honor dismissed, remarking that it appeared from Holt's own statement of claim that he financed the purchase of a piece of property known as the Rosehill racecourse, and in the first part of his statement of claim he stated that he advanced considerable sums to himself and to two others out of the funds of the bank without authority or knowledge of the bank, and without procuring or giving any security for such advances. That waa plaintiff's own statement, and it altogether put him out of court^and^he^ could not ask a Court of Equity to assist him in getting the property away from the bank in such a way that he would derive some ultimate benefit from it. It may be remarked that efforts are being made to have Holt released. , '." Trumpator," Adelaide Observer.) Handicappers for country meetings have some funny cattle to operate upon. The secretary of a Northern meeting recently took the trouble to forward his handicapper the pedigrees of all the horses to be weighted. The breeding of one animal read as follows :— " By a Young Britoa draught colt, out of a spring-cart mare." That animal got the minimum weight. (" Augur,'' Australasian.) Our American cousins do everything in a.big way, but I doubt if anything will come of the latest " gag," which is that Mr Jerome is going to make a mile and a-half straightaway track, over which he will run an annual race of 25,000 dollars. The grand stand is to be 1000 ft long, movable on wheels, and for the great- iace it will be filled at the starting post and drawn by locomotives to the finishing post, thus enabling the spectators to see the entire race from start to finish. This must be a Yankee joke. (Licensed Victuallers' Gazette.) Friar's Balsam continues to hold his position with, if anything, increasing firmness, notwithstanding that two of his stable companions, Orbit and Ossory, also appear in the quotations. In th<j early part of the winter & furore existed for the first-named of that pair ; but a reaction set in, and his name was hardly ever mentioned again until last Saturday, when 900 to 100 ftas taken in one bet by an admirer of Orbit; whilst against Ossory 100 to 8 was offered. The outsider, Connaught, that recently found a idp- ■ porter for the Derby, is now a stable companion of the above-named horses at' Kingsclere."'<lt generally happens if a horse has greatly distinguished himself at two years old, and possesses companions whose form has not been so good, that many people are .found to believe, oh' to pretend they believe, that one or more of these is likely to make so much improvement ma to be able to beat the "crack" comrade at three years old. This is precisely the riAse with regard to Friar's Balsam and other horses trained by Porter. It is a common occurrence to hear men assert that .whilst the favourite s will" stand still," Ossory and Orbit are sure to " come on," and it is even asserted that the stable has in the background horses that will be found equal to any of these, or even better. .-In rumours of this sort I place very little faith* experience telling how small is the likelihood of any establishment having a dark horse capable of defeating such a splendid public performer as Friar's Balsam. Such canards are BwaUowed by a. certain class of people, who perhaps risk a little money on the strength of them and lose if, for 99 times in 100 the outsider spoken about in such mysterious whispers proves to be almost worthless, often indeed is a cripple at the time when the credulous are drinking in statements au to his high class. ■ That both Ossory and Orbit are good horses, and likely to carry the yellow jacket of Eaton with credit this season, is very likely. ' .Perhaps the more likely of the two to improve ia Ossory, and Orbit certainly cannot be described as a taking animal, although he gives every indication of being a good stayer, a.nd the adage of

handsome is that handsome does applies to Uxorse-racing as well as to other matters. At the beginning oE the winter very unfavourable rumours were heard with regard 10 Ayrshire, certain of the critics shaking their heads and declining to believe in him at any £r!ce. A change has already occurred, and the Duke of Portland's good colt is looking end moving sufficiently well to justify the expectation that with health he will do capital service to the stable over which George DawsOn presides. That the sou of Hampton and Atalanta will be found capable of beating Friar's Balsam I do not believe, but were anything to happen placing that celebrity hors dc combat Ayrshire would very likely win the Derby. He has a smart stable comrade in Hazlehatch, who goes & great pace, but will not au my opinion stay so well as Ayrshire. I notice that Duke, of Marlborough finds a supporter oyery now and then for the Derby, but it is unlikoly that ba will ever have to be recommended to readers o£ this article as the probable winner of fcbo gr^.'t race.
