Kaciufr at Gisborne nest Thursday and Friday. The Olaroville trained bir Lethe and Nedra notched a win at the Napier Park meeting. On the iirst day Sir Lethe came to grief in the Napier StooploehHae throngli lMorohiko blundering. Yesterday ho was saddled up for the Park Steeplechase, two miles and a-liall: which no duly won by a kmgtin. Nodru won the Moteo Hack llurdlcH on tho first, day very easily, and returned her supporters a handsome dividend.

It is expected that when the Auckland Racing Club issues the programme for the coming season tiie prize money will be found to have been substantially increased. Tuesday's mail brought exchanges from England witli an account of tho Newmarket Stakes, in which Cyigad defeated Tagalie by two lengths. The description of the race shows that Lomond was pulled up lame, and seriously interfered witli Tagalie. But. for this, the Derby winner would probably have beaten Cj-lgad. A noticeable feature about the race is tnat not one of the five runners was riddou by an Eugiis.'i jockey. Nominations tor the principal events ut the C.J.C. Grand National fixture close to-uight. Sea King's half-sister Eggshell, by Kilchorau—Seasliell, won the Golden Mile at Kalgoorlie, W.A., on June 13th. White Cockade was responsible for a good display of jumping over the hurdles at Riccarton last, week, and his stable companion, Master Paul, acquitted himself well over the steeplechase fences. Silver Blaze was exercised twice over tho steeplechase fences at Riccarton last week, and on each occasion gave a finished display. He was accompanied during a portion of one of his tasks by Shillelagh, who performed satisfactorily. As showing bow racing is booming iv Australia, it is interesting to note that the leading trainers' teams are now approaching in numbers what is generally tho experience in England with the best-known mentors. In Victoria G. Scobie has 31 horses in work, including twelve engaged in the Melbourne Cup and fourteen in the Caulrield Cup while the following list from N.S.W. is instructive:—P. Nolan 21; T. Payteu, 20, F. McGrath li>, T. Scully 17, I. Earnshaw 14, W. Kelso, J. Allsop and M. Thompson 12 each. Sublime now races in the interest of Mr R. N. Parker. Jnlian is now the leading Horseman over fences in the Dominion, and is one of the oldest followers of the mixed riding business now at the game, and is not an exponent of the "Sloan" style, nor is Deeley, who is at the head of the list of flat riders. Maorilancier J. N. McGregor sustained slight concussion and had his lip badly lacerated, when Stratford fell with" him iv the Steeplechase at Moonee Valley on the 15th iust. Three youngsters by the defunct New Zealand stallion Multiform have just been put into work at RandwicK by R. O'Connor. They are Arrowform, out of the imported mare Arrowroot; Multifoil, out of Eloping Lady (imp.); and Mults, out of the Havoc mare Send Off. The last-named is spoken of as a very fine-grown colt. Another one that has attracted a good deal of attention is a colt named, Lochform, and of Marvel Loch, the dam of Lochano.
At the Poverty Bay Turf Club's meeting in 1908, Kaipetipeti, by Monaco—Pouawa, won the Becond Hurdle Handicap very easily under Hi. 12, which is probably the heaviest weight ever carried to victory in New Zealand. The horse is now doing useful service in harness iv Wanganui.

Under tho now Rules of Racing to be adopted in Australia, no horse will be allowed to race in winkers or hoods. Makiri, who won the Hack Steeple on the second day at Hastings, is a one-eyed gelding by the Vanguard horse' Adcliugtou, out of Hoyden, who, it will be remembered, was by Sou'Wester, oxit oil Romp, and therefore half-sister of tho National winner, Norton. Ho has twice been in unhappy contact with a wire-fence, onco losing an eye, and at another time cutting his hind 'leg and shoulder so i ba:lly that he was almost despaired of. The best one-oyed 'chaser that ever raced in Now Zealand was Despised. Ho was invariably referreed to as "The Gunner."
