Owners in the Wairarapa and the Hutt have freely patronised the Marlborough Racing Club, both in the gallop and trot events. This Club's meeting is becoming very popular, its energetic secretary, Mr C. J. W. Griffiths, having the confidence of horse owners generally. Acceptances for first day's races (except Maiden) weights for which appear elsewhere) close on Monday nest.
Machine Gun was purchased as a yearling for 340 guineas.
Green and Gold, who registered another win at the Thames meeting, has scored live victories in a fortnight.
The winner of the V.lt.C. St. Leger in the last three years has beon sired by an English-bred horse.
The V.R.C. Champion Stakes has been won by a mare three years in succession.
Scotch Mary, tho dam of the Australian Cup winner, Great Scot, was bred to a trotting stallion in the season of 18'J-i.
On Thursday last, at Flctnington, Wakeful won her twenty-second race. The daughter of Trenton's earnings in stakes to date amount to £14,289. Heroism, who won the Wanganui Stakes, is a rave-bred colt. He was got by Graf ton (son of Galopin) from Grafin, a daughter of Carbine and Loyal Peeress, the latter being a daughter of The Peer. Emir, a colt from Wallace by Emmie, is looked upon as a promising candidate for V.R.C. Derby honours. Volodyovski, the winner of the English Derby of 1901, has finished his racing career, and has gone to the stud at Walthaui Cross. During the time ho was racing, he started 26 times and won soven races, worth .£12,000. He started 11 times last season, and was not once successful. Mark Ryan, who had tho mount on Mars on Thursday last, when the vo:eran son of Ingouiar scored in the Wanganui Cup, achieved a like feat in the samo race 12 months back on Nonette. His Majesty has one four-year-old, seven fivo-year-olds, and nine two-year-olds in training for the coming season. All the three-year-olds are by Persimmon, who is the sire of six of tho two-year-olds who may carry Royal colours. Independence, the three-year-old daughter ol Wallace, who acted as runner-up to Chantrcs in the Newmarket Handicap, on Saturday last, won tho Hawksbum Handicap on the preceding Saturday. The filly was purchased by Mr Sol. Green for 500 guineas after her victory in that raco with a view to being shipped to South Africa. As Independence was only beaten by a neck in the Newmarkot Handicap, she went very near to winning back double the amount of her purchase money for her now ownor at tho first time of asking, A fow days prior to suffering defeat in the Cauliield Futurity Stakes, Wakeful put up a phenomenal gallop at Caulfa'eld by running a mile and nine chains in lnrin 57secs. This " go " affords pointed proof that Wakeful retains her pace in a wonderful manner. It appears that the marc got a bad run in the Futurity Stakes, and to that causo is set down her defeat. TCmir. who. triumphed in the V.R.C. Sires' Produco Stakes, ruu uu*.. v*u * tog last week, ranks as one of the high-
est-priccrl yearlings sold last season, Mr Ernest Clark paying 1000 guineas for him. Emir was got by Carbine's best son, Wallace, and his following in the steps of his siro by capturing the V.R.C. Derby, is considered a very probable event.
Mr Pi. S. Sievier's turf transactions since he made his sensational purchases nt the salo of the Duke of Westminster's horses have resulted in a substantial profit. For Sceptre he gave £10,500, for Duke of Westminster £5,880, for Sandflako £5,775, and for Consort £735, or a total of £22,890. With Duke of Westminster he secured £2,645 in stakes, and afterwards sold the colt for £22,050; Consort was sold for £2,100, Sandflakc for £1,030, and Sceptre earned £25,650 in stakes or a total of £54,125, leaving a profit of £31,235. Besides, he still owns Sceptre. In America there are professioHßP dyers of horses, whose natural colour their owners wish to change, for aesthetic or other reasons. In a New York paper one G. F. Richards advertises himself as " an artist in running colours." " I can make a chestnutcoloured horse in 24 hours, no matter what the colour of the animal brought to me. To make a black or a brown horse requires from six to ten days. I have mado a white horse out of a black one, but I don't like doing it, as the experiment is attended with danger to the horse."
Mr Stead's stud suffered a rather serious loss last week, the St. George mare Ich Dien being found dead in a water-race in the paddock in which she was grazing. She had apparently rolled into the water-race, and, though it was evident that she had struggled to get out, she was unable to do so. The daughter of St. George, it will be remembered, won the C.J.C. Oaks Stakes in 1893, and also ran prominently in many other important events. When put to the stud she threw to St. Leger that great stayer, St. Michael, the winner of the Auckland and Wellington Cups. She is also the dam of Romany Queen and Royal Plumes. She fine stamp of brood mare, and at t!W time of her death she was in foal to Multiform.
In the training note 3 in the Hawke'e Bay Herald, Ostiak is considered, on a recent gallop, one of the hardest horses to beat in the Napier Cup.
