Dalgety & co., agents Currie Street. our victorian budget racing notes and notion dishonest trainers by observer there is an undercurrent of dishonesty amongst a certain Circle of trainers operating in this state that will do the sport of racing a lot of harm if it is not nipped in the Bud and the dishonest kid stake trainers hounded out of the game by the authorities effectively backing up the complaints of owners. If an owner takes a horse from one Trainer because he is displeased with the Deal he has been getting he finds it hard to place it elsewhere unless he is Lucky enough and Cali afford to pay the figure that the Topnotch ers demand for looking after a horse these Days. New South Wales had rather a welter of the a dishonest trainers a year or so a of but a Little drastic action of which the Public knew very Little thinned them out to such a degree As to make their nefarious actions of the turf of Little or no account. In Victoria we want to take a Leaf out of that Book before it is too late. Many an owner has had Nasty aspersions East on his sporting character. Through the dishonest practices of an unscrupulous Trainer and the one or two rather glaring cases within the past week or so ought to Wake somebody up to take action. The training of i racehorses is quite a lucrative business at the rates now paid and considering the Trainer gets 1. So much of his employment cheaply on the indentured apprenticeship basis there should be no need to take the owner who pays the Piper Down on those few occasions when lie stands a Chance of getting son be of his own Back. To win races when the owner has been advised that his horse will not win and therefore does not bet is Only one of the Many ways thai dishonest trainers smudge the fair record of racing. Anyone with the most elementary knowledge of racing can conjecture in an instant How Many ways a dishonest an fur Longs from Home Yien Daniels rushed Deacon to the front As if he was fifty Yards from the Post-3 and secured a five lengths break before the others took a Tumble which he looked like maintaining to the judge but at the straight Entrance Duncan woke up to himself and rattled King. Pan through with textile following both had dwelt a lit up to this stagehand they finished in that order King pan winning by a length with Deacon third and another slow to get going one in Irish rhythm fourth. Despite King pan s Excel Lent finish textile who finished like a rocket should have won. An j Dempsey did not look too pleased with himself about the race he had Ridden As he weighed in second. Still it serves him , and possibly there will be no about textile or Irish rhythm next Start. Backers were getting it in the neck up to this but As if to show that they were not getting hot and bothered about things they installed coolness As favorite for the trial plate but n Little later on Paddy Kelly s charge. The governor became absolute favorite at 7/2, with plenty of 4\s about coolness and startle at ii/2 next. I a Patchy race out of the three Well backed ones startle was the Only one to get a place the win net tuning up in the theatrically named David Garrick who went to the front Early and won by a head from the consistent startle with raw Hetu another head away doubtfully third. The Winner was almost friendless at 25 s and Little winks Rode him a Well judged race. Dapper and constant Insco ran to suggest something doing very shortly especially the former. The favorite worked up very Little interest and finished anywhere or nowhere. Scapato having the services of Daniels who was r Ding with much More vigor than usual made a 9/2 favorite for the last race the trial purse three others. Bindweed Maluka and Anatoly being solidly supported at 5 s i beat him and these three finished in that order precisely the imported a tasmanian Mare bindweed winning nicely by a neck from Maluka who had made a Good Deal of the running. Next came Maluka and the favorite Scapato whose fifth could easily have been better. By ii Duncan Rode the Winner which gave him a double for the afternoon. Lie deserved them. Lie Rode keenly and seems to be almost again. Many punters got their exes out of bindweed s win but on the day1.- operations bookmakers garnered much easy Money and in at least two races punters got a very in and out run for the � s. 1., and some of them went Home with a look on their faces thai suggested aim her Epsom altogether.

Minimum should it be abolished by from time to time controversy arises concerning the minimum weight to be carried in Handicap i aces and arguments Are adduced both for and against the proposal to do away with the 6st. 71b. Minimum. This latter mentioned weight has ruled for Many years As the lowest impost that could be carried in a Handicap but in Days that Are gone much lighter weights were often allotted. For instance away Back in i 1864 lantern carried the Light weight of 6.3 to Victory in the Melbourne cup while nimble foot and Briseis had but 6.0 and 6.4 respectively when they scored and Zulu was successful in the same race with the featherweight of 5.10. Nobody i think wishes to see a reversion to those imposts. In fact there a been a tendency within the last few years to raise the minimum in handicaps to 7st., and a great Deal can be said in favor of this move. In new zealand the other Day a Law was passed compelling the mini a mum weight allotted by Handicap pers to be not less than 7st., and there probably would not be much objection raised if the same ruling were brought into Force in this state or even throughout the Whf Cle of Australia. It can be pretty safely stated that a horse incapable of carrying 7st. Successfully does not deserve to win a race at All. In this state there arc few jockeys of any experience and capability who Are Able to go to Sale even at 7st., and in Many instances a boy of limited experience and ability is put up in order to avoid overweight. Even so in How Many cases do those horses allotted 6.7 in a race carry the Bare weight awarded them very Lew. Time after time overweight has to be declared and in Many instances so much extra has to be put up that the horse actually carries Over 7st. Even when weighted at the lower Mark. Thus in most cases the work of the Handicap or in adjusting his weights goes for naught and his ideas of the capabilities of Yario Jis candidates Are not Able to be properly tested. It May be objected that the raising of the minimum will impose a severer task on the to weights inasmuch As the imposts they will be called on to handle will be increased. This however is a matter that would soon be adjusted As failure with the bigger weights up would soon result in the loads awarded those at the head of the list being reduced handicappers too would soon be better Able to judge the Powers of any animal were the 7st. Minimum made uniform instead of the weights being framed one Day on the 6.7 minimum and the next ranging upwards from a Mark half a Stone heavier. This Las named occurrence is also a source of trouble to punters who in comparing weights carried one Day with those allotted for the following afternoon s racing Are often confused by the difference in the Bottom weights. Altogether the raising of the maximum to the 7st. Mark would be a move that would be appreciated by owners trainers jockeys and the Public generally and now that new zealand has Given a Lead in this direction there seems no reason Why the Reform should not be adopted throughout the states of the Commonwealth. The 6.7 fetish will probably die hard but the handwriting is on the Wall. L a u b m a m pank certified opticians 75 Rundie Street Adelaide. We test the sight by the latest modern methods.
