Dalgety & co., agents Currie Street recent ugly incidents in big Fields and the shrieking for room by riders of mounts that Are being squeezed has again Given Rise to the query a. To whether some of the Fields allowed to Start in sprint races Are not a great Deal Large for safety or for clean racing. I have again been asked to express an opinion on this but i find it hard to be at All definite on the Tratter. So much depends on the racecourse and the Width of running track nature of turns Etc. It is not always the number of starters that causes a pack to occur in running. There have been some frightful mix ups in races in which there have been Only four or five starters. It Only needs the Field to be Well bunched and rail hugging at any turn to cause trouble if one should stumble or Slacken Speed suddenly. This must be obvious to any race goer. There Are so Many horses in training these Days that even with divisions Fields must be larger than we have hitherto been used to in smaller races and sprints and there does not seem to be any Way out of the difficulty that i can suggest without being accused of talking through my hat altogether. There is one Little thing however that some of my enquirers would do veil to Bear in mind and that is that All that squealing for room that they hear As the Field goes past in a Bunch is not genuine. There Are or three jockeys Riding in Melbourne at the present time who Are chattering grumbling and grousing from Saddle up to Saddle off unless their mount happens to be Well positioned. The stipendiary stewards know this and therefore discount Many of the complaints made about rough i passages in running. Hooter should be hooted we do not want boo Hooters or Hooters on the racecourse. It is a Savage Way to show disapproval and lifter All no Man is compelled to attend it is purely voluntary. There was rather a discreditable scene at Mooney Valley last week which prompts these remarks. A group of race goers or three of them Well known regulars including a Melbourne Medico commenced to Hoot and Hiss honest Peter because of his backward running in the hurdle race. They had just got Over one healthy or unhealthy Hoot when the horse was seen to stagger and fail having fractured a Hind leg and within a minute or had been destroyed by a merciful Bullet. There were half a dozen sports near this scribe including a Weil Mcnown Trainer who would have liked to have taken the Law in their own bands for just a second or and what they called the members of the Hooters party would scorch this paper to record. Honest Peter was at Odds on in the race and it was Only one of a number of times that he had disappointed but hooting is certainly not a sports Way of showing How he feels Over the loss of his Pound or is it As one or papers have since pointed out there was no justification for honest Peter to have been an Odds on favorite. His form certainly did not warrant it. Wonder what the Hooters Felt like when they saw what really was the matter with honest Peter hardly Likely to make a in difference to the likes of them is it they la Hoot just As strongly next time they feel like it. The value of the Skull Cap. Anyone wanting a testimonial to the efficiency of Skull Caps can get an illuminated one from Tieh Wil son any time they like to Call round for it. Undoubtedly it saved his life at the Valley last week when humoresque fell with him. It was Cut in by the Hoof of a horse whilst Wilson was on the ground. As it was he escaped with a shaking and a slight Bruise or . Death of or. M. P. Bauld. Known the length and breadth of this state indeed All Over the Commonwealth in racing circles the late or. M. P. Bauld whose death took place rather suddenly on Friday morning last was indeed regarded As one of the big men in racing. If not an actual pillar of the port in. This state he was indeed a very sturdy Rafter and the kind of Man of whom it can truly be said that there Are All few of in the racing Anie at the present time. In his capacity As handicapper to the Mentone and other racing clubs both regularly and from time to time he was perhaps Best known to the majority of race goers. His weights were always favourably received by owners and trainers and esteemed by the Public even if they disagreed with their As the Large amount of work he put into their computation and equitable allotment was As Well recognised As his integrity. As turf writer for the Melbourne weekly table talk the late or Sauld was easily one of the brightest and most pungent descriptive writers on turf matters in the Commonwealth and his Pithy paragraphs were literally wallowed in by prominent racing Folk. His death at the age of fifty three adds considerably to the succession of losses racing in this state has suffered during the last few months through the operation of the grim reaper. Facebook Sharks. They re at it according to one of the outside men at Williamstown approximately three Hundred race books or so were sold at Williamstown at 1/6, and Over the other saturday notwithstanding the published Price and the same practice was mildly indulged in again at the Valley meeting. Certainly it serves race goers right if they allow themselves to be victims by this sort of thing and encourage the practice by buying the books hut it is useless to talk in this Strain. The Dodge is Only worked when there is a shortage of books or an alleged shortage of them and it very often happens that one has to pay that Price or go without. It is not so much the Money As the principle. If it were published at 2/0 it would be just the same. It is certainly up to the authorities to do something Mere effective than publish Stern rebukes of this shirking practice. Matters of interest. Resigned. Owing to ill health or. J. Warren White chairman of . Stipendiary stewards has tendered his resignation As from 29th August and did not officiate at Mentone on saturday. -0 other fish to there does not seem to be such a Rush of victorian riders Likely for the Randwick racing this year. Is there something in the inter state vendetta business after fell not much fact is there is toe much Good fish to Fry Here where they know the ropes. Keeping it to himself. There Are lots of guesses going the round As to what Holt really thinks of Royal charter s Derby Chance. Somebody said last week that he was not enamoured of it. All Bunkum perhaps. Cup discussions once again let us repeat the re j Vertex axiom he who hesitates is not necessarily lost in the matter of cup wagering. At moment of writing talk in certain circles and Money talks louder than anything else seems to assess current fancy in the following order Caulfield cup. Lily Pond Easingwold to Karby.

Not endeavouring to give you a tip at this stage or to influence your Early procrastination and investments which Are More a matter of sheer Luck than anything else. Let it be repeated one again water the imported horses this year for both Mentone saturday after a respite of More than months race goers rather relished the trip to Mentone on saturday in weather that silenced the grumbles of even the Moat confirmed Groteler. The attendance was Large and looked to be As Many As have Ever natron ised the Mentone course. The track showed signs of the recent heavy Rains but withal was in Good racing condition and certainly showed that a Little More care is being taken of it than in the Days gone by. It is up to the Mentone Folk to spend a few More pounds on their pretty course in the Way of improvements if they want to keep in the Good books of race goers. From a financial Point of View backers just about hold their own. Two first favourites scored but Kalpa Patoo Woolette and beeline also carried tidy packets the former As second favourites being supported with gusto by that Bevy of heavy punters who have earned for themselves the reputation of cunningly backing something to beat the favorite without the Price indicating what is being done. Easingwold s failure was the talk of All race goers homeward bound. Some Nasty things were said. Whether they were justified or not events alone will prove. Now for the races in tabloid. The three year old. Quite a Novelty for proceedings to be opened with anything but a hurdle race but the three year old race looked to offer much More interest than any contest Over the battens could at this time of the year. Backers plumped solidly for Etiwanda but there were several ominous fluctuations in the betting before that horse actually finished up a thereto one favorite. Kalpa and Metellus were Well backed to 7/2, whilst the prices of most of the others indicated that it was the run they wanted More than first second or third place. The hop out won the race. Devereux on Kalpa got a Lovely Start and stayed there throughout. It looked As if Metellus would score when he challenged determinedly in the run Home but Kalpa had just enough in hand to win by a head. Some Speed rot the worst of the running but stall ran third and must be remembered in future outings. Etiwanda ran poorly and the Trainer Mccalman said she was probably Short of a run. Nice information after the race. The win made Kalpa s fifth in seven starts this Yeai a veal Gritty Little customer if Vou like. Open Handicap. Here we have smoke bomb favorite again this time at 5/4. Could he keep on winning having already on four times out of five starts. He did and did it nicely. Chelidona and Correct trim looked after the Dace and appeared to have the race Between them until Dempsey brought. Smoke bomb up on the outside and won rather comfortably with a length or so to spare. Correct trim ran into third place in a Way that showed something doing soon preferably in a big Field. Kid Law who was a sound second favorite at 7/4, got p bad Start and never afterwards had a Chance. Brush Steeple. Once a in Nolle pro Sequi a favorite at 7/4, the figure with Patoo and West win Imera the Only others backed seriously by the Folk who bet in information. It was hard to say i hat was the matter with the favorite throughout the race. He certainly was jumping badly but never looked quite out of it until he struck at the last Fence. Genazzani a saved to win All the Way and looked like doing so until Patoo strengthened up at the Home turn and won by three be norths. Het Hartmi for shod third and looks a Good bet when the Price is Shorter than Twenty five s nominal. As a matter of fact Tris column indicated Heatherton for third place and Many shrew Dies had p collect. Trial plate. Wall Arak still a Maiden was in stalled favorite for this with some Down and out triers to beat nine or ten of them nibbled at in a Small Way by their connections5/4 seemed like buying the race for Wall Arak but it turned out Trumps. The race was quite an Ordinary one with the Winner looking to be any of six until the straight was entered when Dempsey got to work on the favorite who gathered up the leaders Loch Eaton and Pendil Rose and won in Fine style by three quarters of a length with Prince Florizel who also stuck a pin into himself Over the last Little bit finishing nicely in third place. It was an impressive performance of Wall Araka s and it is doubtful if Dempsey Ever Rode a better race under such conditions. Wall Arak will win again very shortly and so will the third one Prince Florizel. At the same time never forget the weakness of this Field. Trial purse. A new zealand gelding vol Hynia one of Lou Robertson s pets was backed by the dogs and incidentally made an 7 to 4 favorite for this but the Best he could do was second to Woolette mainly because he was kept Long out of his ground or rather that is How it seemed a Good thing beaten. Entered get third place mostly on Sufferance one or others could have had it had they bustled a Little. All the same entered is coming on and will be Worth a Good bet shortly. Bastian Rode the Winner and showed Good judgment in the Way he nursed the filly who is also by Toorak As was the previous Winner Wall Arak. Mentone Handicap. What was the game in this race Easingwold Drongo Spear age and Caserta All top notches and apparently in the betting yet not one place Between them. Add stare to that Bunch and the mystery becomes greater. The betting indicated Easingwold a 5/4 on favorite and Drongo at seven s on the same Mark As feel Iii. The less said about the race the better. Nasty words have a habit of peeing Back. Going his hardest All the time so it seemed Easingwold was Well and truly outrun by beeline the Winner answer and pen Garie who finished in that order. Yet it will be Wise to forget this race., or rather have your own opinions about it. Both Spear age and stare Van indicating races. Drongo will do better after a race or . Such Little things As the Mentone Handicap arc surely sent to try us. Let us refuse to be tried and merely amused. V Eter an committe m an. Satisfaction is always Felt when or.
