THE TWO THOUSAND GUINEAS.
(London Times, May 3.)
©a the evening previous to the race Morier was quite the hero of the hour, on account of rumors of some wonderful trial he was reported to have done with Dalham and Julius Cse^ar. That Feck, the Duke of Westminster's trainer, wa3 satisfied on the point the weight of money behind the horse was the best assurance. It was this that drove Chamant back in the market, he going to 100 to 30, while Morier was backed down to 9 to 4. Of the others Strachino, another French representative, had been forward in the market, and there was plenty of money forthcoming from the wealthy house to a member of which he belongs. In the saddling paddock the merest tyro could pick the winner, Chamant looking such a gentleman all over, and being so perfectly trained, that all the others looked commoners beside him. The following is a full description of the race :—: — Two Thousand Guineas Stakes, a subscription of 100 soys each hft for three-year-olds. E. M.

A capital start was effected at the first attempt, and after running in a line for a few strides, the field began to separate, and the first colors' to show in front were those of Monachns, who in the centre of the course held a slight lead of Monk and Warren Hastings on the near side ; next in close attendance being Silvio, in advance of Brown Prince and Thunderstone* at whose' heels' was Chamant ; and showing prominently on the whip-hand side were the Voltella colt, Morier, • Kingsclere, and' Strachino; tire' last, of whom displayed considerable temper at the post, and, beginning badly, was speedily three or four lengths the last of all. The first to hold out signals of distress were Warren Hastings and Kingaclere, who were beaten al the T.Y.C. winning post, shortly after which Morier followed their example and lost his place before reaching the Abingdon Mile bottom. Here Chamant raced to the front and increased the pace, which settled Thunderstone and Monk. Rising out of the dip Brown Prince drew up to the leader, and was followed by Silvio, the Voltella colt, and Monachus. None, however, had the chance of getting on terms with Chamant, who directly Goater raised his hands romped to the front and won with consummate ease by a length from the American colt, who however ran a good game horse. Silvio was third with his head at Brown Prince's girths, the Voltella colt fourth, olose up, just in front of Mdnachus fifth, clear of Monk, Thunderstone, and Strachino. The last three tailed off were Morier, Warren; flastk' ings, and. Kingeclere. Time-Jwii, SOsec,
