Hartney sunered from cramp Ini one of his legs when the field was! I about three and a half furlongs! from home, and he stated after the) race that he nearly fell off the horse, who was the Cup favorite. Hartnev Mild ths'. Saint Warden was making a smart run on the outside of the field when be was attacked by cramp, and he could use only his hands in his effort to drive the gelding along. How ever, alter Saint Warden bad lost ground, he ?ai able to use both bands and heels, and bis mount responded gamely. Re did not have any fear of defeat once Saint Warden began, to Craw on the leaders in the straight. Saint Warden, who arrived In Adelaide only a few days before bis Port Adelaide Cup engagement, worked well In bis brief was always a firm favorite in the betting, although the wayward Shalcreal was strongly supported against him. I SalDl Warden has proved an excellent, bargain to bis owner-trainer. Mr. C.: Nicholson, of Mordialloc. Victoria, who: In a few weeks has won two important j racer after having purchased bim fori 300 guineas. In winning the first dlvl-l HOn of the CaulOrld Cup late in Octo-| her, Bt.

Garfleld, The Hyphen and Tlmaroo. The lastnamed moved up handy to the pacemaker at the home turn, but Indignity retained leadership until near the two furlongs poet. Shakreal then assumed command, and wb?n he was dear tie appealed w have the nee In his safekeeping. However. Shakreal tlrad badly, as also did Vaga ?e. who had put Sna claim, and with Us sustained run Saint Warden hit the front. He was immediately tackled by Lord Kldaton, but, although the latter finished strongly, the Victorian represen tative withstood tbe -challenge. I*>rd KMiton-s atablemat* Chief Watchman ran on fairly well to cut Shakreal out of third place, with alias Rebecca, who was unlucky in running, n?u to cross the line. Early in the race The Boss sot on the heels of Arbiter and both lost ground.
