The above colt ia closely related to several of our local . horaea, mentioned last week, > , . t -•> ,-i,«;--!—l'9hciuld' J ]ik^'tb J^HaTe : been with' "Sir Lauucelot" to see the finish between three such good bred 'uns rta masters—Piibrowv Ltuin,-&hd Eny. ; —-During the Ascot, -week, three Derby, three 'Oaks, two St. Ledger, a couple of Two Thousand, and a One Thousand winners ran j auoh an array is above the average. . — In Ada Mantua's a Chinaman, in Stafford-street, Punedibj;.- got.; first prjze 'in the Steeples. The first prize in the Hurdles wontto • Port Chalmers. : — The great horse show at Islington, this year was above the average. The Earl of Shrewsbury paid John Eobiuson £2000 for a team. o£ four coach, horses ; but they were horses. — Mr Stead's ■•ho.rse Splendor ran in the Grand Prize at Epsom, but.was unplaced, Aroher having the mount. Jem Snowden, of Blair Athol fame, rode Splendor in the Derby. . • —The Auckland Pedigree Stock Company have had nn unfortunate loss in the death of their valuable marc Sergero, dam of Leauchainp 11., winner of the Grand National at Croydon. ' —Tristan is a bad horse to ride, and in the Hardwick Stakes, the- "Demon "who would have to enry ;»lbs., ovorwefeht, did not care about the work, so Fred Webb got the " leg 1 up." — Captain Cotton has been proposed as handicapperfor the whole" of New Zealand. ' It will be interesting, therefore, to see. his ruaidon effort in the Christchurch Hiinfc Club "meeting.' —The first batch of Eob.ert the Devil's yearlings are a promising lot, many of them being chesuuts. The crack hao grown very like his.sire Bertriim, having more quality than was expected. — When ; |h| mounted policeman went to lea,d ,i th^ vrimicr ottlfo Derby in aud '.font to Wood, tho rider '" of St. Blaize, Charlie said, " This is the v wrong; Jiorse, > Webbe won." Strange the judsra gave it a neck victory. , — Wyatt, the jockey, through Radraall's trouble -isidisqualified' irojn Tiding, like Othello his occupation is gone, if tbe sentence is not removed. We ruiiy get him out here; he ia a good horseman, with experience. -^.The entries for the Ghristchureh Hunt Club .Steeplechases on Saturday were satisfactory, viz.: — Tally- Ho Plate, 13 ; Open Steeplechase, 11 ; Hunters' Flat Eace, 14; and Hunt Cup, S. Acceptances tomorrow. • . ' ■ : : • • , — My New York correspondent writes, under ,nate June il : — "Fred. Gobhardt, the plutocrat. whose name has figured so much in connection with that of Mrs Langtry. won tbe Coney Island Cup last Saturday with his racehorse Eole, and is said to have won 12,000 dollars."

- —The handsome little Betrayer, by Traducer — data Idalia, was passed iii for 150 guineas afc Tattersall's, Christchurch. Possibty.another so guineas might buy him. The two St. Albans colts were also oii'ered, but not sold. ■ ■;•'-.,,; - •. — The Four-in-B-and Coaching Club, at the? Serpentine, in Hyde Park, was well attended, 28 teams jfcivkintj part in tbe display. Chesnut3 are most fashiou--nblc just now. For private linnsoins, yellow wlieol3 and pink bodies, picked out with black, are frequently seen. ; — tej " Spectator's" gossip, I see our old friend R. ;H. Nolan is secretary to the Eginonfc Jockey. Club, .and is ably carrying out tbe works commenced by bis predecessor. Mr Charle3 Kn.nso.in. . Tbe -turf is as "level, as !a bowling-green, the couch grass' answering ad mi-' rably. ! — One of the best. twd-year-olds seen this year •is an own si3ter to Tadcnsfcef, the horse whom the discharged stud groom averred was really Bend "Or. The above filly; ia by Doiieastei*, out of Clemence, therefore ' is very'closely allieds to thu Pedicrree Stud Company's .jhare Mersey, who is by Knowlesly, a Stpckwell horse out of Cleuieuce. ' • • .•'...'. -Mr C. H. Williams has been elected secretary of Tattersall's Club, Christchnrch. At tbo meeting, a balance. in favour of the Club shows assets to the amount of .£l2O. Messrs Brabazon, Pilbrow, and E. Eich.ircliOJu were elected to fill vacaucios on the comuiiiLee. A LftirLy yuLe of Ihuuks was jjivuu to Mr ' Eoper, hon. treasurer. . ..-,.. — The : Oanium Jockey Club has' a credit balance of £243. The total is.it or seems to havo been a .great help to the Club, giving a^net profit of £isi. It is iprqi>osed to hold their Spring, Meeting. early inOctpber,, 'also to hold a Steeplechase Mestiug in June, and, to . make noniinations nnil acceptances as low na possible, also to request Mr Dowse to act;,a3 haudicappor. , : 4— T. Radmall, owner of Brilliancy, has been* warned off Newmarket Hsath.andall monies won by Brilliancy at any meeting .during Mr X.'s ownership, must be returned to the stakeholders for people entitled' j to the same. This. i^iii,np,wivy. to interfere withjbets, j but} it will mafce'it Very'coinplicateil to settle if this sort of thin» goes on, as 'this is just the aort of disqMalificatioii which leaves Iho interest of scu7ces and* bets inseparable. • __ • ':?.'• '. — The Ascot programme ■vvas: strengthened by the Orange 'Cup presented by the King^ of Holland. This race being three miles— a' very uhusiml distance — ifcis ranch -to be regretted that Tristan did ftot meet Barcaldine, the winner, :who is one of'the best stayers ou tua turf. ■ He is an inbred horae.but it is of « a sort .which stands close relationship better than most sli'i'.iufcs.. I gave his*, pedigree lust week; • Tristan hu.n been beaten by' Barcaldine once already, but the Irishman was in receipt of-. 21bs allowance. Eobert Peek refused £10,000 for isarcaldine before he won the Cup j all he gave for the son of Solon 1 was .€1300.' — "Se>.ex"and "Sir Launcelot" both remark pn the improved appearance 6f f Hippodawin, althongh "the former says she'is a, trifle low in condition and dry j in her coat, but has filled out woiidt-rlally. The hitter" is struck with tbe likeness to' her sire, Hippocampus, i Vino inys. her i-rypelliug power and muscular develop- ! mci! L h aouiething i o remember, Uutthinks she is rather' j light in the back ribs. This mare is in the New Zealand !
