It is etatd that JGSOO was recently asked ior Hautapu. Carbine was known as "Old Jack" when hi; was racing, and. his celebrated eon. Spearmint, is called "Tom." Tho annual meetyag of the active members of the Vvanganxii Jotkev Club will bu held at Chavannea' Hotel to-morrow week, Wednesday,, 25th mst. Tho bal-ance-sheet issued by the Club shows that matters arc in a highly satisfactory state with that popular body. No less a sum than .£4586 was spent in permanent improvements during the pact twelve montlia, and though there if au overdraft of JK7IS ;ls 2d, a sum of 4750, wliieh ia on fixed ..u posit, maturing next month, will practically extinguish .the club's indebtedness. The Wungauui Jockey Club is one of the best managed iuetitutiuiu* in the colony, and there is every reason to look forward to the club having a continued run of e; access fio long as those in charge of itn affairs display tTie same fin«s* spirit which has characterised their stewardship in the l'-wt-
D. Mailer's (the American rider) victories in big events in England in a fortnight are remarkable, included amongst them living been the Woodcote Stakes, the Derby, the Oaks, the Caetle Irwell Handicap, aud the Manchester Cup.

The carrying by the New Zealand Racing Conference of the motion standing in the naim x of the Auckland Racing Club to tho effect that the Metropolitan bodice oo given }xnver to refuse a permit to smy club under its jurisdiction using the totalisator which liccuses bookmakers, practically meana that the last has been seen of the pcncilfrra on local courses. Up to the beginning of last' year the Auckland Rac.ing Club was the only metropolitan club in New Zealand which licensed the pencillers, a proeeedintr which was followed by rhc majority of the suburban clubs in the Auckland district. Last year, however, matters underwent a decided change, aud as ia now well known, bookmakers were debarred from plying their calling at Ellerslie, but were licensed by the two lemfing suburban clubfl-7-Avondale and T;ikapuna. Tho metropolitan body, howevor, evidently did not intend to do things by halves, and the motion framed by them, which has just been carried, leaves no doubt as to their intention to compel all clubs in their district to fall in line with them on the bookinakine; question, so that from now out betting will have to be done solely por medium of the totalizator.
