One or two of the racing clubs have recently had complaints from some source or other that bookmakers have been taking bets from women on the racecourse. It does not seem As if this question will Ever completely die out and it certainly seems to be a Case of much ado about the women who bet will get their Money on in some Way or other and if they do not make their own bets they will easily get someone else to make them. Although this scribe is not wholeheartedly in favor of women being allowed to bet openly he cannot Advance any very logical reasons against it just prejudice perhaps. But it certainly would be much better to have betting by women legalised than to have it going on so obviously. Saturday after saturday and making the Law look a greater ass than it really is. Many bookmakers will take Money from women openly and one or two of them Are known to have quite a connection in this regard on the outer. Of course it will be said that the Law winks its Eye a Good Deal at things like this but too much winking will eventually Blind the Eye altogether and diminish the respect of the Public for other betting Laws and rules. With the approach of the big Spring meetings when there is so much of this betting done it is to be hoped that something is done or the matter dropped altogether. It is ridiculous to see it forbidden and ver flourishing. I think most race goers will agree with this. Untidy race goers was there even an unti Dier lot of Folk than the habitual race goers after a race they tear in the betting tickets they May hold the losing ones of course and scatter the pieces broadcast where they stand on the Lawn or anywhere else. Their troubles As to who has to clean them up on the following Day. If a Man has a Small bet he seems to he Content with tearing the ticket in two. Or at the most in four but if he has had a big bet. And lost a decent amount he seems to get some satisfaction by tearing his ticket up into the smallest size confetti. Perhaps if they were approached the bookmakers might contract to clean up and collect the ticket debris for every ticket found there represents a win to them of course. What s that i hear you say Turfy tabloids there seems a Gap in the administrative part of the victorian club since the death of or. Harry Borwick who died a week or so ago after having been with the club for Over Twenty Vears and having served them Well and faithfully As an assistant Secretary they say no Man is indispensable but positions like this / take a Long time to fill satisfactorily. Tom Sanders the Well known owner Trainer of Wildun hop picker renown is Back from a trip abroad during which time he visited England Ireland Scotland America and Canada but still thinks we can give the rest of the world Points in racing matters. C f. E. Shillabeer is on his Way Home \ and should arrive in Melbourne just after the Caulfield cup. Then we May expect something to be doing with one or two of his horses a Nicoli have been rather quiet whilst he has been overseas. A fairly Strong victorian contingent has gone across to try conclusions with the Randwick Folk and As Many of our games bettors will be Over Sydney Side for the next week of two either they or the bookmakers will add or subtract Many noughts from their banking figures. Things Are not Likely to be half done either. Two derbies to Victoria on saturday. Whilst heroic was winning the historic . Blue Riband event Wycherley owned and trained by j. Scobie was winning the s.. Derby in Good style. Both were Strong tips and carried a Good Deal of victorian Money both Ante Post and on the course. Eurythmics s stake winning record did not last very Long after All. Gloaming is �167 above it already with a lot More wins yet left in the Welkin heroic is also going up the stake winning ladder and if he trains and races on for a couple of More seasons there is no telling what figure he May reach. Saturday s win brought him Over �17,000. All earned within twelve months or so. Bookmakers had a meeting on Friday last at which they passed motions of approval of the contemplated action of the . To have All positions including rail ones drawn for by ballot. There were sixty seven bookies present and Only seven dissented Flom the motions. It is not hard to conjecture who these seven were and what their reasons were for dissenting. After All some of them have had the rail positions so Long that they were perhaps entitled to have them for All time. It is still doubtful whether some of the minor Fry will be Able to bet the Pace Thev will be asked to Over the rail at All times still that remains like a lot of other things to be seen. A. E. Browne of Caulfield was the successful applicant for the position of stipendiary Steward to the Northwestern District racing association. Or. G. A. Davis of Caulfield has been appointed handicapper whilst or. Punshon of st. Arnaud will be the official starter at All meetings held under the auspices of the association. Many bookmakers got a Knock Back at Caulfield on saturday when they turned up to Field and found that Only those with . Licences were in order. Serves them right. What did they expect it was advertised enough goodness Only knows. Caulfield saturday october4 there was a great attendance at Caulfield on saturday when the . Staged the first act of the big Spring carnival and they did not seem to suffer any inconvenience by the meeting being held away from pie Mington. Rather perhaps it was otherwise. Noticeable improvements at Caulfield were the betting ring changes which made for much mors Elbow room and a Little less profanity and the new Fyfee s Box which has been erected fish or away from the rail than is usual. Rupert Green once again tinkered with the starting lever for the first time since his trip abroad and his hand and judgment do not seem to have lost any of their cunning. As indicative of what is going to happen in the big races ahead saturday s performances were not very illuminating although All fancied candidates acquitted themselves to the satisfaction of their connections if not to that of the Public. There was considerable interest manifested in the races in Sydney and quite a lot of betting was done on the Derby and Epsom mostly to the bookmakers sorrow. Hurdle race. All acceptors weighed out for this and prospects were for a Good race. Kii Evv was made a 5 to 2 favorite with just double those Odds for Fairland and lady Lack with Bendon and Marnoto Well backed at Sixes. Nolle pro Sequi who started at the Nice Price of sixteen or thereabouts went Oft with the Lead and essayed to win All the Way but at the Home turn was tackled by Fairland and they were on terms at the last hurdle where Nolle pro Sequi fell and left Fairland on his own to come on and win by Only a neck from Bendon who finished Best of All and appeared a Good thing beaten. Lady Lack finished fourth and looks a Good bet next Start in any race that Bendon is not in. Colts and fillies. Verv dangerous events to bet on. These trial stakes yet in the Colts division backers went in with their Heads Down for Archelaus at 5 to 4, making Man acre next Best at fours with Para Ane who had already s win to his credit quoted at fives Here and there and it is rather remarkable that these three filled the a laces from the Large Field. Archelaus seemed to get the Best of the jump out but Man acre was soon up with him and coming on won come c. Rabiy by three lengths with Para Ane in third place. The latter is better than this performance and looks like the goods next Start. Another Kai Warra in. The fillies division the Muster was Twenty two and they looked very Well conditioned better than the Colts. Triangle the speedy South australian was actually an Odds on favorite at 10 to 0, the next backed being Gog a at eights and any old Price Many of the others. In this race again the win was an easy one. The Polowa filly Lave use starting at twenties defeating Triangle by two and a half lengths with gotta doubt fully placed third. Man acre the Cults Winner took 54j sees for the race which broke the course record As against 551 sees taken by the filly Winner Lave use. But the races were differently run. And perhaps if Triangle had got a better jump out than she did the Boot May Nave been on the other foot. Merely conjecture of course. October stakes a great Field for this. As representative of the different states and new zealand As we have had for Many a Day and bookmakers clapped their lips at the Prospect of staking up. Whittier. Looking fit to run for a kingdom was promptly installed a 5 to 4 favorite with the Hawk at fours next and Englefield at fives. Lily Pond strangely was at tens with the others hardly fancied. Whittie .-1 was Well placed throughout and although Lily Pond had the Lead round the turn the Brilliant Toorak horse was first into the straight and finishing like a Champion came on to win rather easily by two lengths from Lily Pond. With Englefield close up third and the Hawk the Best of the other. Whittier won this race last year and As he seems As Good As Ever will indeed be a Factor to reckon with in the Shorter weight for age races to come. It would i to never let him run against you. October Steeple. Nine for this with Listolier and Scooter level pegging for favouritism at 7 to 2, with the daddy of the race at fives Jolly past. Scooter essayed to win All the Way and led for most but once Heads were turned for Home Jolly past tackled him and just managed to win by a head with King Neptune in third place. It was up to Jolly past to win As he has raced with a lot of bad Luck. Listolier tired but King Neptune looks j like a Winner soon. J stand Handicap. J Twenty six starters for this Rath or too Many to suit one or two thai j might have been fancied in a smaller Field but All the same there was not j much hesitation in 5 to 2 Suomi i with All Sunshine the next fancy at Sixes and Easingwold at the. Lengthy quote of tens. The favorite did not ret anything the Best of the Start As being on the rails the Field came Over and he could not hold his position after the jump out so that after a while. O Sullivan Riding for his took him round on the outside and catching the leaders Sidonia crack Lus All Sunshine textile and stare 1 just round the Home turn he managed to stave off the tiring textile and win an excellent race by a Long neck from stare with textile in third place. Graulus was fourth whilst the majority of the others did not seem to care where they finished. Stare ran a Good race and May be Worth watching whilst All Sunshine and Easingwold although unplaced did not disappoint the Folk who really matter. Suomi Drew attention to his Caulfield cup prospects by the win which was scored a la eurythmics and the extra three of the Caulfield cup should not trouble him much. One or two others in the race acc Arak having first run for a Long time., acquitted themselves As if the race would do them the world of Good. Paddock Handicap. Bookmakers had b can having a pretty Tough spin up to this race and they were Angling for something a bit lengthy to help them out of their trouble but it did not seem a if they were going to get it out of this race As punters were in great Horh and backed at least Csc it horses vol.

Corner station Street and Ingles Street. Three minutes in electric train from Flinders Street to North port Static i Good accommodation excellent table. Reasonable Tariff. Spring discussions after saturday s racing there was not very much doing in the Way of business for the two cups both backers and bookies being of the opinion that All the performances of the Day were not As honest As they might have been.
