BY "EARLY BIRD."
"Hambletonian" writes in London "Sporting Life":—"l had a chat recently with a sporting parson who had been haled before his bishop to answer certain charges made against him because of his love of horse, hound, and turf. The bishop refused to inform him who had written certain damning letters, and what the exact charges were, so the sporting cleric said: —'Well, my lord, all 1 can say is they treat men a good deal more fairly on the turf when they have anything against them, and don't try them in this hole-and-corner fashion; surely you'll extend the same fairness to me which a jockey accused of .not riding square gets? Failing this, I shall continue to ride my race as I consider best.' The bishop was most pained at this 'unintelligible sporting jargon,' but I fancy my friend is rather like Sptedy Payne, who when called before the stewards to explain his conduct in a race replied:—'Your highnesses, my lords, dukes, generals, colonels, and admirals, I doesn't care a d ! When I rides and doesn't win, they say I pulls; and when I rides and wins, they reports me and suspends me. I've got a wife at home, a pig in the sty, and some money in the bank, and I doesn't care a d what ycu does.' "
The Panther was the first winner sired by Tracery in England, and was the highest-priced yearling of the season, costing 3600 guineas, md up to his Derby defeat last week was believed to be the best. His sire was bred in America by Mr. August Belmonl, of Lexington, bat did all his racing in England, and like his ton, got beaten in the Derby, which many thought he should have won. Unlike his son, however, he got third, and it was his first race, whereas The Panther won the Two Thousand Guineas and races at two year old made him look good in the interval leading up thereto. Tracery's breeding is all right, and he was not beaten after the Derby, and proved a great throe-year-old. It is on the dam's side that one fails to have quite so good an impression of
I The Panther. The dam, Countess Zia is by Gallinule, from Order of Merit, by Collar, from Lady Rayleigh, by Hampton, frcm St. Cypria, by St. Gatien, from Marcia, by Macaroni, from Feronia, by Thcrmanby. I Collar has not done so well as was expected of him by good judges, but Gallinule mares have been more successful at the stud than Gallinule horses, one of which, however, All Black, left us Desert Gold, and another, Penury. Lady Penury—good mares. Tracery was the best son of Rock Sand, and The Panther, so far, 3s voted the best son of Tracery, and it is, of course, to be expected that (he will redeem his character. His | Derby form was surely wrong.
i PROMINENT LADY OWNERS. ! It seems all the fashion for lady | owners to win big races in England in these days. The Derby, Two Thousand Guineas, September Stakes (substituted for the St. Leger), and Newmarket Gold Cup went to Lady ! James Douglas' Gainsborough last iyear, and now that lady has won the Oaks with Bayuda, a very consistent filly at two-year-old. Lady Queensberry, whose colours Avere carried for the first time when Royal Bucks smashed up his field for the Lincolnshire Handicap, comes from a branch of the Douglas family, of which Lady James Douglas came into such prominence through the classic victories of Gainsborough, the winner of the triple crown. Lady Queensberry informed a representative of the "London Sportsman" soon after the Lincolnshire Handicap that she could not understand why Royal Bucks was allowed to start at such a long price. When the horse was tried with Helion he went so fast and stayed so well that it must have been the best gallop done at Newmarket this season. Lady Queensberry regarded her horse as a racing certainty, ar.d subsequent events proved her judgment up to the hilt. It is not often that an owner makes such an auspicious beginning as to win a big handicap at the first time of asking. The Grand National has been twice won by Poethlyn, owned by Mrs. Hugh Peel. Mrs. Arthur James lost the Oaks last year through the disqualification of Stony Ford. On the opening day of the Lincoln meeting Lady Torrington won the principal event. The lady owners of Poethlyn and Royal Bucks furnished the respective winners of the National and Lincolnshire Handicaps double. For many years a lady raced in England in a large way in the assumed name of "Mr. Manton."
