I Collar, who is nearly an own brother to Sceptre, arrived in England from America in May. Mr R. S. Sievier was the first to take & nomination to "the horse at 50gs, whilst his subscription list was quickly fiiiing.

The first four have won, but his fifth selection, according to English; files, was an unlikely starter.

It appears that the totalisator< officials at the Napier Park Meeting omitted to. ring on two tickets on Ballistite, who paid a dividend of over £122. This means that the money will have to 'be found by the totaiisfctor. proprietors. Wheai the' last mail left England, Carbine was a good .secohdto Persimmon' in the winning sires' list, »nd, judging by the form his stook is showing, it is possible that the Musket horse will lead Persimmon before the season closes. Sidus, after winning ihe Prince's Handioap at the Gatwick Meeting on. May 17, was disqualified for .bumping, and Rice, who finished •second, was declared the winner, whilst dhe Carbine horse Wargrave went up into second place. ■' ,The committee of the Dun«din Jockey Club received ani application for registration from Ihe committee of the newly-formed Forbury Park Racing Club.

Bistonian won five races in England last season, and has tun well >two or "three times this year. Among the starters for the Singapore Derby were Iron.

Tescheroakef. iHe was a Queen's premium^ winner in England. " The New Zealand hurdler, Regalia 11., drew attention to his Grand National prospects by easily and unexpectedly annexing the Rose- : hill June Handicap, one mile and three fur- i longs. He went 4o the front early, and was never afterwards headed, winning hard held, by half a dozen . lengths. Queen of Sheba was a waxm 2 to 1 favourite, but the best she could do was to dead-heat Fairy Prince ior third place. . .."'■•• Mr Allison, they" Special Commissioner " of the London i '" Sportsman," condemned the Derby winner] Ard Patrick, op account of his r. being sired by a No. 20 horse, but after the colt had shown such good form in the New-. market Stakes, in. which he was disqualified for boring,, the writer, in a '-three-quarter column article, failed even to convince himeelf that the figure system was impregnable.
