" AUCKLAND. November 24. To-day judgment was given in the matter of tlio appeal of Jame3 Jeffs against the decision of the Canterbury Jockey Club in disallowing his claim to the stakes in the Criterion Handicap run on November 9, 1903. After referring to details of the points involved, the judgment concludes — "The Judges allow the appeal, and reverse the decision of the stewards and com. mittee of ,the C.J. Club ; they decide that Mr Jeffs' Petrovna was the winner, Sir G. Clifford's Golden. Vein second, and Mr Donnelly's Westguard third in : the Criterion Handicap, and they direct the Canterbury Jockey Club to pay over tlie stakes accordingly. It is to be regretted that the rules are imperfect in not conferring on the judges of the- conference power to mulct any metropolitan club which is a party to the appeal in the costs of the appeal, and all deposits lodged by Mr Jeffs must be refunded to him."
TAKAPUNA J.C. MEETING. i ANTICIPATIONS BY "ACHILLES." I The above meeting 1 commences to-mor-row, and as the weather prospects are good and all the events are very open, the racing should be most interesting. The following are my selections: — Trial Handicap. — Cabaret and Stromness. Cambria Handicap. — Merry Delaval and Suresome. ' St. Andrew's Handicap. — Zuleika and Durable. Maiden Hurdles. — Swagsman and Swimmer. Melrose Handicap.— Elspeth and Discoverer. Pony Handicap. — Girton Girl and Miss Cuirassier. Hurdles. — Irish and Loch Lomond. Cheltenham Handicap.— Black and Gold and Ben Blair. A Napier scribe states that A. Shearsby has resignei the position of principal trainer to Mr Q. P. Donnolly, nnd intends
i to remain in Hastings to practice his profession in a public capacity. Shearsby's well-known experience- and ability should ensure him good patronage. F. Lind, who so successfully piloted Mr T. H. Lowry's "lepping" horses last seasou, lias several horses studying under him at Wangjniii. The beut of his pack to nijr way of thinking, says "The Squire," i'li the Napier Telegraph, is a good-looking chestnut gelding by Fiske out of Satellite. Betsy Burke ,who won the two-year-old rate at the W.A.T.C. (Perth) meeting last montli, is by La Var from Acrasia's halfsister Laura (Niagara — Cerise and Blue), who wo a a few races in. Mr Oxenham's colcurs in Sydney and was subsequently sent to West Australia. The English Derby winner, St. Amant is such a vicious, bad-tempered brute that he has to be worked in a muzzle. So far this season in the other colonjes, Gozo heads the list of winning stallions, his representatives having . captured ,19 races of the total value of ,£6432. Graftou comes next with .£4735, Wallace third with .£3217. _____ I>-^«.
