After Mr. T. if, Daskeln, of Morden «tatton, in the Barrier Ranges district, had bought Probation through Messrs. II. Chisholm 4: Co., of Sydney, Ur. W. E. Bidwell, of Rototawal, who sold the mare, -mote to htm, telling' him that lie had secured a good one for racing, to say nothicc; of her breeding for stud work. Probation had never bten lame, nor- had there ever been any- thing the matter with her. She should have won some of the chief races in New Zealand, as no horte on the Wellington tracks could get near her, and'she defeated ta "Xefv Zealand Cup winner art »even- furlongs in hi« final gallop! She has been an unlucky 'mare, and he advised Mr. Dattkoin, if he happened to be a betting man, to be careful about her trials, m she seemed to go better in a trial than in a nee. Mr. Bidwell thinks that .his'trainer was too lenient with -'he mare and allowed her to get too fat inside, a». the last race she ran at Wellington she was going easily in front, but just failed art the finish. Mr. Bidwell thought Probation went i better under welter weights, simply because no I «mall boy could manage her. VV hilst he thought ' the mare could get any distance if fit, he re-

garded »even furlongs as her beni course. He _ wound up his letter by stating that Probtaion is a good constitutional mare, and honest when well off for condition.

A. Melbourne »Tiler states that a Mentone trainer is credited with having won £6.500 .tvlthin the past two weeks. That sum would have been augmented lud 'iVcd^e -run first in place of third in the Standish Handicap. "

At Newmarket, England, jui>t before the Carl field Cup, a backer went up to Harry Clare and asked him ¡f he betted starting price- on his races in Australia. " Vnywh.rel" waa the reply, "and against twins if you like." The backer dis- claimed any (lca'rc to' invest on the latter con- tingency--n hielt, by the way, used -io be a favorite wager to lay at Lloyd's, and (says the "Loudon "Sportsman") still .has some vogue. 'A hat the backer did want was "a fiver" on King Offa for the Caulfield Cup, and he was promptly acronrmodated by the obliging layer. The result of the Caulfield Cup' was cabled -io England.

At the Newmarket sales Jack Point, a brown colt, 3 years, half-brother by Swynford to Magpie, was -sold to the trainer. II. ,Leader, at 3,000 guineas. Probably the latter waa acting for young Lord 'rt'IKon. * One -writer thought full value was obtained for the colt, who was a stable companion of The Panther.

Sir A. Bkek sent The Panther into the ..ring.

He was counted the best two-year-old in England I last season, and cost that gentleman 3,000 guineas a« a yearling. ,Tlie ringside was packed when The Panther went in, and Mr. Somerville Tatter- sall, before announcing the reserve, dwelt upon the value of the colt's pedigree, and remarked tliat while good horses are usually sold at or towards the end of their racing careers, here was one on offer almost at the beginning of his. Mr. Tattersall went on lo tay:-Vlf the reserve which I am about to announce is not offered, the colt will at once leave the ring, and nobody will be able to buy him afterward« for the amount." Having, in a vein of humor few who do not know him well suspect him to possess, thus kept the eo-ipiny in suspense, the auctioneer solemnly said, "The reseñe Is 40,000 guineas." The laughter which greeted this statement can well be imagined. Of course there was no bid, but Mr. Tattersall had not quite finished, for he drily remarked irurt the laugh might be the other way in a year or two.
