Ring Central 6609 and our traveller no a to h�0 1im in the licensed Victualler at 10rphettville 26, 1888. An interesting programme. To Morrow january 12, 192-i, the licensed Victualler racing club will inaugurate a meeting Ai Victoria Park. To Morrow also they will Start afresh and Lay the foundation of that which has every Prospect of becoming something More than a racing club holding the right to race Oil to i allotted Days in the year. Time was when the licensed Victualler were a Strong Factor As a club in the sport of Kings and they in the past More than once came to the Rescue and kept the Good old Flag of this truly British sport fluttering in the healthy Breeze of Public life and opinion of this state. The licensed Victualler raced in the past but allowed their club As a racing club to become defunct As an Active body. They came into the Arena to serve a purpose and having done that allowed their rights and privileges As a racing club to lapse. But to Day those in authority in the licensed Victualler association have come to the conclusion. And rightly so that they can make a respectable and auspicious come-1 Back. They rightly believe thai they should As a body hold a meet ing under their own control and so help to further this grand sport and push it along in a state thai at the present is somewhat slumping so far As racing is concerned in the main body. At the present there seems to be Only one live club in this area and something will have to be done unless we Are to lag further and further behind those controlling bodies of the Eastern states. It is certain hat the Energy and enthusiasm which the . Will impart to racing and its followers will have far reaching and beneficial results m the not far Distant future. Of the Good sports whose names appear As officers of the , of 1888, few Are still in the land of the living. The few Are messes. Henry Hughes t. F. Wigley John pile w. Nicholas and f. C. Air Ridge. Or. Tom Wigley is now one of our Stipes and looks fit for another three or four decades or. F. C. Aldridge a brother of the Squire of Richmond Park was keeping an hotel at Hamilton in the Western District of Victoria a while ago adn May be doing us still. That Fine old col., or. John pile can be seen about Glenelg. Where he is taking things easy and or. W. Nicholls does not look much the worse for Wear and tear. Or. Henry Hughes the Veteran handicapped has not been seen about for quite a Long while and if he could be Only got to attend to Morrow s meeting he would receive a great reception. It was in the late 80 s that the licensed Victualler formed a Rae ing club and kept the turf Flag flying when the other clubs into recess to wait until the Patrao sphere cleared. In those Days the turf was under a Cloud. The dowser element in parliament was Strong enough to put the Boot into the sport with the result that the tote was abolished and to other betting allowed. Horseracing without betting is like trying to have a Bath without water and yet the Boniface bravely came o the Rescue and held race meetings until the totalisator was once again legalised. As a matter of Hardshell fact the. Adelaide racing club was formed from the licensed Victualler racing club. Latter club after having served the purpose of keeping the race game going Here decided to Reform itself into the Adelaide racing club with a View to giving the club less of a class or party distinction. Yet in spite of this fact some opposition to the new . Was forthcoming from a certain Section of the press whose turf writer evidently did not know How the licensed Victual cars had saved the situation at a time when it looked As if Adelaide would be the Only City in Australia to have no sport More exciting than a Tea fight and Bun struggle. Therefore the new club when it l receives the unbounded support of the sporting Community is receiving Only what is its due. The appended programme is interesting by Way of comparison with the races of that Day and those that Bear the Sunu name to Day. On december 26 last the christinas Handicap of �1000, was run under the auspices of the port Adelaide racing club. On wednesday december 2 the licensed vict mailers club staged a in Rinnas Handicap of the value of 150 so is. The port Adelaide Christmas Handicap is run Over six and a half furlongs and is looked upon As one of the principal and richest sprint events on the racing Calendar in this state. The . Christmas Handicap was run Over a distance of nine furlongs. Another race that figures in the programme is the totalisator Handicap an event that is now run under the . Regime at Headquarters. Thirty six years ago is a Good Span to look Back upon and As the following will show Many pronounced changes have place and much Progress been made in racing in this area. Under the patronage of the then governor. His excellency sir w. C. F. Robinson ., the licensed Victualler staged a programme consisting of six events of a total value in Stak a Money of 480 sons. The programme was of a varied class vastly different from that which is put before owners of to Day. We have Given the programme fully and have inserted the winners of the different races at the end of each event m parentheses and have no doubt that it will Jorove interesting Reading to Many.

Let to Morrow take care of tomorrow leave things of the future to Fate what s the use to anticipate sorrow life s troubles come never too late. If to Hope overmuch be an error tis one which the Wise have preferred and How often have hearts been in error of evils that never occurred let the Joy of the present sustain thee permit not suspicion and care with invisible Bonds to unchain thee but boar what Fate brings Theo to Bear. By this spirit supported and gladdened be Neer by forebodings deterred but think How Oft hearts have been saddened by fear of what never occurred. Let to Morrow take care of tomorrow Short and dark As this life May appear Why make it still Darker by sorrow still Shorter by Folly and fear half our troubles Are wholly invention and often from blessings on feared have we shrunk in wild apprehension of evils that never occurred.
