The nearest rival of P. Archer is Lord Rosebery's jockey Constable, who has ridden 71 winners out of 297 moun,ts ; and next to him comes J. Goater, who, with 59 successes out of 211 attempts, has almost as good an " average" as Pordham, and a better one than Newhouae, who has widen far oftener to obtain the same uumbet of winning brackets. It may be noted tH&t of the 1906 races run for thi^ seaaqn, three — the Derby, the Two Thousand Guineas, and the St. Leger — were more than £4000; one, the Middle Park Plate, more than £8000 ; while five others were between £2000 and £3000 in value. Nineteen races were worth from £]000 to £2000, and 6JL more fr.qm. £1000 to £500 — the total value of the 89 wh\ch came up to the last-mentioned figure being £96,156.
