Dalgety & co., agents Currie Street ? racing notes and notions honest men and criminals they rub shoulders on the racecourse. By observer some of the biggest Crooks in the state Are to be found at every race meeting. The police know it. As a matter of fact the racecourse is one of the Happy Hunting grounds for the criminal investigation department generally and they always manage to look in at a race meeting when seeking some person or information about some person or persons i n the name of the Law. Yet it is quite obvious that Crooks do not As a Rule ply theft various nefarious callings on the racecourse. They cannot do so or else we would More frequently hear of robberies from the person a. Stand hear the betting ring at any meeting and you will see Folk carelessly stuffing wads of notes in outer pockets As if they were in their own backyards without regard to who is looking on or what Crook or Crooks May be marking them Down As a Good lift. Occasionally of course there Are thefts some one gets a pocket picked or miney or ticket stolen but i n comparison to the opportunities offered such cases Are rare and must Lead to the conclusion that the majority of Crooks go to the races More with the idea of indulging their love of a Gamble than to pursue their adjudged calling. Of course there Are plenty of jobbers and urges at every race meeting. They Are a class of their own who practise their profession Only on the , and must not be confused with the generally recognised criminal persuasion referred to in this article. Is there then something about racing and the inordinate love of a Gamble that takes the mind of the Crook off his bread and butter Mode of obtaining wealth by felonious mean sit certainly Sterna a if there must be otherwise what the explanation returned soldiers As bookmakers most racing clubs give preference to returned soldiers in the matter of applications for bookmaking licences. This preference was solidly availed of at the time of its introduction and we saw quite an influx of returned Soldier books makers. But where Are they now with one or two exceptions they have petered out and certainly have not done too Well. It is hard to ascribe a reason for this. It can t be altogether a matter of experience lots of other rookies came in at the same time and Are still going Strong on much less Money. One racing o official Ven. Tures the opinion that they gave too much credit to fellow diggers and crashed accordingly. Another that they introduced too much Friendship into of Weir business. However that May be they have certainly riot done too Well and if you were to tackle this scribe for a reason i would unhesitatingly say that it was because they were deliberately marked and shot Down Early Ini their careers by shrewd Heads and cunning punters who fired their iof Cea off on them As Long As they could stand up to the Money. There Are always a lot of jokes about for Nursery bookmakers but it is quite of Virtu that returned soldiers were singled out for the Ever of them when a Batch or two set up in business two or three years ago about Bend time to be precise. Not ready Itow often is this phrase served up to race goers when some to Euse is being sought for the poor performance of a horse that has carried pub lie Money disappointingly especially at this time of the year it Rife and it is surprising How candid trainers become in the use of such a trite term. They do not make too much fus about their horse not be ing ready before the race. Of dear no. Their troubles if the Public Loe their Money. What right has any horse More particularly a Public favorite to Start in a race if he is not ready to do. Himself Justice it course it will be argued that horses have to have a run or two in Public As part of their preparation. This is readily admitted and is of course part and parcel of the training o of the thoroughbreds but a Good Deal More honesty could quite easily be expected from trainers in this regard. One or two of the better known Are incorrigible offenders. And i have heard the remark made that it Sery a the punters Damn Well right if they f do their Money on these not they Are hot asked to Back i them Etc. Of course they Are Widt. But they Are entitled to presume that a horse has a reasonable Chance of Success in any race in which he is sent to the Post. It is extremely difficult to suggest any Means whereby punters May be warned when a horse is ready or when it is not. One of two rather drastic suggestions flit across the mind but it is better not to record them on paper. But race goer would do Well to Bear this not ready business in mind about Many horses especially about this time of the year and temper their betting operations accordingly. The pick of the apprentices Little Stubb lety who is apprenticed to Claude Goodfellow at Flemington must be dubbed the pick of the apprentices with a future. His handling of Charlecote at the Valley meeting opened the eyes of Many race goers and More than one full fledged jockey could already take a Point or two from this lad. He uses his hands and heels in an understanding manner none of that Jerky spasmodic Flash Ness that characterises so much of our race Riding at the present time. Matters of interest enjoying enforced Holiday. Alby Doy the Cross country jockey who has been enjoying a Good Holiday whilst suffering his term of disqualification Over the Aspendale pow Traven incident is keeping himself fit and Well in readiness for the resumption of Riding next month when the ban lifts. A dashing and fearless rider Over fences it will be Good to see Doy Back in the Saddle. Two prominent owners gone two rather Well known owners died recently. One in or. J. J. Wise was a Well known City business Man who was up at Queanbeyan for a health Holiday and or. James Murray of Warrnambool a brother of a once Premier of Victoria or. John Murray. Both owned Good horses in their time one owned by the late or. Wise being Bull Yang and one owned by the late or. Murray being tiie famous steeplechase Freedom. The deaths of these grand old men of the racing game in this state have been placed on record quite a lot during the last month or two and one wonders just where the obituary Roll is going to end. Recovering his Harry Harrison the Well known Fleming ii Trainer is getting Somy of his kick Back again in the Western District whither he went for a health Holiday and he threatens to be Back at Flemington again before very Long. Talk about hearts of one from the 3ush." every now and again something Good blossoms out in the country and Seta metropolitan race goers thinking. Our toy trained by t. Ryan of and at Echuca is the latest the recent Bendigo wins having rather shown up this Mare As a smart Middle distance performer who would undoubtedly prove a Good proposition properly placed in suburban racing. Once 4.cdmniitteema.n another racing club committee reelected in the face of opposition. All retiring members of the Ballarat miners turf club Are Back again on the committee with the genial or. Spring As president for the ensuing year. Once on a racing committee � Man seems to be there for life unless something very untoward corps up. Speaks Well for administration. Can t be much wrong anywhere. Are they hiding something taking a line from recent Sydney racing there does not seem to be anything Over there that is going to trouble our speedy two and three year Olds in the Spring classics. But they Are pretty cunning Over the Border and have a shrewd habit of disguising form. All the same they will need to have something very Well disguised to get a look in this Spring. Even South Australia seems to hold a stronger hand at moment of writing but it does not do to be Hasty. Williamstown saturday there was & bumper attendance at Williamstown on saturday swelled no doubt by the weight for age Titbit the Williamstown stakes which was being offered for the first time As part of its August programme by this progressive club. There were a Good Many Folk present on saturday and a majority of bookmakers who were prepare to Call the club anything like progressive nature of their latest course improvements which seemed to have been designed As far As ring accommodation is concerned by three Drunken men in the dark with a pot of treacle and a Heap f Sand each Man having his own Way As to where the treacle was spread. Still they Are not too slow m waking up at Williamstown and Trier is hot the slightest doubt that tie club will promptly alter the sex of Irreg Cranky conditions before they Endeavor to entice another race Cowd to their otherwise picturesque is horse. The bookmaker punter Duel enfiled with honors about even although four favourites failed two of than at Odds on. But other winners a Whittier and the Lance were Well backed to second favouritism and took a lot of Money out of the ring. I hurdle race. Sewn was the Field for this with kit Evv an Odds on favorite at to to 9, Vith Only Loja and Pindarus backed seriously against him. Loja was Hiwing his umpteenth run for the season and it seems As if he really must win soon. After a scrambling kind of race Loja assumed the Load entering the straight a was first Over the last hurdle and coming on in Fine style had no trouble in winning from Pindarus. With the Odds on favorite Kile Evy Only a moderate third. Many who Laid the Odds were of the opinion that Kile Evy was hampered a bit in running but that is More pocket talk than anything else. Seaside Handicap. Toorak and Whittier a Bendigo double. This was the course Rumor and a business is generally meant when they talk it from this Quarter it was Voi y soon after betting opened of this that Toorak was a 5 to -2 favorite in a Good betting race. All Serene was second Choice at fours., Dempsey Rode Toorak a clinking race and just managed to win by half a length from Jenna Warra who is rapidly improving with Chelidona a cock away third. Others anywhere. Don t ask questions it was Toorak s first win for eighteen months or so and no one begrudge it. Still the form was t anything wonderful. Williamstown stakes. This was the race. It Wai expected to be a Whittier Easingwold Duel with the betting and everything else favouring Easingwold on the strength of his recent running. But Whittier once again proved that he Niu Fet be considered the Best Miler in. Australia. Always Well placed the so Hampton son of Toorak gave prank Dempsey an easy ride once tote race developed openly. Kid Law went great guns for part of the Way and is go r , be much heard of later on whilst King carnival would have done even better than second had his condition been a Little More Forward he would just about have beaten Whittier on the Day. The third horse Arendal opened the eyes of Many and shaped like a typical Bragoon and As a horse who will relish a Middle distance. The less said about the better. He disappointed although lie finished like into fourth place. Don t let this run put you off Hie Chestnut one Iota. In spite of the Odds 071 betting and All the rest of the indications the Holt connections were not taking the defeat to heart so Why should backers Whittier has ii.7 in this year s Caulfield cup and being quietly backed for the event but it is Likely that he will do better in weight for age. Steeplechase. The Steeple was a succession of Falls. Only four out of a Field of nine got round and one or two of them were Lucky. Skedaddle was a 7 to 4 favorite but toppled when running second. Berbar War. Second favorite and ran fourth for the simple reason that there was no other horse on its pins at the finish. Fals form forget it. The race went j Val Aster Well backed at eights who 1 won by Twenty lengths or so from r Emblem with Dunt in third t n Val Aster Ivsich made it All the More palatable his turn does not come too often. August Handicap. The s looked in open kind of a race and Herp did not seem to be much u stiff mention for the installation of Alwynne As a 5 to 2 favorite. Still Money talks. The Lance at fours was next in demand and there was a of enquiry for Yac Amunda at fives. And beeline on the same Mark. Tie rare was Well run and at different stages it looked As if an Villi he that was trying might win. But when things settled Down properly it was Yac Amunda All Over the course but strive As hard As he could Frank demos eve could not stave of the Lance who coming fast from the distance reached the judge half a neck to the Good. Beeline and lil Jerie dead heated for third place whilst the Best the favorite could do was sixth just behind imputation who. As usual ran a consistent kind of a race. Beeline will do better next up and so might Yac Amunda who is More tractable than he used in he. Velter Handicap. The dogs had been parking fathom for this race.
