SPORTING. A most remarkable fact in connection with Amiable, the One Thousand Guineas winner (says the Argus), is that she is affected with very pronounced stringhalt in both hind legs, but that this does not interfere with her speed when galloping was rendered plain enough by the result of the race. SLo started at 100 to 8 for the event (the favourite being Joossta at 2 to 1). and ridden by Bradford won easily by three lengths from 12 others. Amiable subsequently won the Oaks.
