Tins Australian Tooker Club^commenced their Autumn

Mooting iôr"l866 *oà Satùrdày'lastj under, perhaps, not

tile moat favourailo ausp|ces._ Accidents and jnusforj-. . tunos hadlmfortnnätelybeen'busily at work; the Bolds Vero much curtailedfrom whit they were, expected to bo a morith'agö ; the arrival of tho Melbourne colts last week, had. caused considerable distrust in the Kew South Walds two year, olds ; ¿nd.? altogether,: speculation had

boen confined'to a few~-favourites, the outsiders - hav- ? ing boon .hardly, backed at all. Tho Holiday, too,-on

St George's Day,' had cáusoda good deal Of money tobó ' spent, which would otherwise luve -gone to-Bandwick ;

and, notwithstanding the excellence-of-'th'e programme,'' and tho interest - attaching to The Leger; The Cup,' and' the difforent two year old races, we have dong been alive to, the faet that the' meeting' did not create the excite mont it merited, or that we should' havo liked''to'see. The lamented death of Mr-Charles Martyn, Into Trea- surer of the A.J.O., cast a chilling damper upon every thing; and there was a sorioua air about tho officials,' as they moved: about with the mourning badgb upon tho left arin, which told of misfortune that' loft'more'thun a surfuco grief behind. The Club havo loft nothing un- done tb bring'off tho meeting with eolat'i and for months past tho energetic Hon. Secrotary has been' contriving and perfecting improvements upon' the times gone by.

, Much has' been dono to the «ourse ; and a very great im- '.

provoment indeed is the new paling fonce,-six feet high,' reaching round tho first turn, on the outside,'from op- posite the entrance gato, to near the rooks. This-will

serve asian effectual atoppor tb bolting off the course'at' that vary tempting gate turn. Tho running ground -is in first-rate order,-admitting of - no doubt -as to- tho' beiie- ' fioial effects of street sweepings as' a top dressing.';'in short the. A.J.O.--will- not relax their efforts until they have succeeded in arriving as' near perfection with their

,raco course, as'circumstances will admit. 'Since the

Spring, the Grand Stand has undergone some alterations, by whioh entrance has been facilitated ; and there are improvements also in tho weighing room, by which what goes oninside can be soon by persons interested, and the room still kept clear for tho officials to carry on their bittiness without crushing or interference.! We said that misfortune thinned the fields, and so it did indeed ; for during the week before the races, Old England, Lord of the Wood, and -Blair-Athol; all-very promising colts, disappeared from , among tho two -year olds; Orphan Prince declined to sliow for tho Leger ; and many doubts wero thrown upon Tarragon boing a- starter for any of his engagements. Still, however, Mr Town's horse found supporters for the Cup ¡ --and'with things connect- ed with all tho great races, in >a state of delightful un- certainty, the curtain rose upon the . i

:. - *' j _ FIBST DAT.

., Saturday morning, when wo'looked out, gat o evory. ,prpmiseof a fine-day; tho general appearance of things as thoj day advanced, being quite enough'to tempt'all those who had not quite made up their ifiinds whether theyVwould go or not; .'It' strück its throughout tho fdre . noon that tho busses! were not'so largely pntronised'as usual i and all along tho road wo noticed a falling off in tho number of travellers, so that we wero riot at all asto- nished to find on the1,course, by far tho smallest afton dance ¡we ever saw on a. Saturday ; nor did the-numbers increase in any very; largo ratio during thb cntiro after- noon.! .Wo ahould not ha«e taken it for "The Leger Day,"| for, truth- to speak, it had more the look ofan "off";day ; and wo could well have supposed it to bo. tho Friday betwoon the Cup Day and tho /concluding Satur-, 'day'; Naturally, tho Booths, of which thore were tho usual çui««riim,,did;not make w,hat- would bo considered anythitig.'like a Saturday's harvest; and tho:Lessee of 'the Gate, would hardly find lie had too cheap a bargain. So far things did not augur well for great profita tothoso who had myestod capital in race course property . Of course, there, was tho usual.atteridanco of racing men j but tho general publio woro not thoro ; and tho nnmber of vehicles ranged along the inside of tho course was a longway below tho average; Mr O'Brien, ofTattersalPs, dispensed creature comforts,. as usual, at tho Grand Stand!; but even he was not patronised ,as of yore,, and must have discovered a falling off in his takings, Neither the stand» enclosure was as numerously tenanted as heretofore ; and there was not the least difficulty in getting close enough to form an opinion of tho greatest -favourites. - For-the-first race, Malvina inspired most confidence; and'sho looked pretty' right, while' Mr Town's colt did not please us a-bit ; but thero was a hard-áa.naUs: old-fashioned' look about Barby arid Ash- worth that quite prepared us for mischief. The bid horse was very fit ;1 he soemed to race os if it was great'fun'to htm, and he liked it ¡ and 1*9 and his ridor evidently quito understood each other. For the next race there carno out tho finest field of two year olds wo oversaw in Aus- tralia, and somo -that would be difficult to find the .equals olin the : Of course, the obsorved of all observers were the Maribyrnong pair ; and when they stripped under the, shed,'; there, could be but orié opinión about them. The "Hook" isa tremendous oolt, with immense size and power, without being handsome; and Budelight, although thought little of by his stable, (so we bear); ísiuBt ono ofthose useful eut-and-come-again colts so difficult to find, tho bottom.of.- In the race he was in front ¿from .end tô'cnd; ,waaCnover.; caught'by any 'but Fishhook,' and the latter had to bo punished to' win the' race.-' Our'impression was that both these colts were mud fat, and tho way they ran homo, led to the question being asked rory gonerally, what will they be when they are fit? . Tho Judgo's colt,, " Sir John," comes naxt to . the Melbourne.pair in'point-of fashionable appearance ; ho has rather a heavy head and neck, , broad chest ; and is very deep in the girth, with great thighs quarters and gaskin«. '; He sweated considerably when stripped, giving us tho idea that he was fretful, and had been a littlo " off." ' The Barb. to.our fancy was fitter than anything else-'in' .in1 the raco ; and there is no doubt ho went, faster ' than; any of them, round tho turn ; but. something, made him' 'shift, otherwise bb would not have been a mile away in

the run homo. -Bylong is a very improving looking colt, with great propelling power, and all over the walk of a racehorse. Ho will.have,to see a good'day yet. Circassian looked well enough ; and ran well to the turn ; but after, the execrablo start ho got ho. could not bo ex- pected to be more* forward than he was". In the first half mile; he, mado up-much- of his' lost 'ground; arid pas»ed several that woro in : front of him. At' Homo bush we expected to seo this colt improve ¡ and but for .getting away so badly; he would have run wellen Satur- day. Hambleton Hill ; is a fine big colt; but not furnish- ed enough to run woll at two years' old ;-and Norma,: though anice pony, only made us fancy, that a "trainer can' derivo little. satisfaction from having siióh quality put into hia hands.-Miss. Corobus certainly : showed no improvement on.ber Homebush form. -. They were nine, very creditable youngsters,-.and if: the dozen had been . mado up by Lord of the Wood, Old England, and Blair Athol,. ! they would .indeed. have been , a great - lot. - Fourteen out of the fifteen.on.tho'card, sported silk 1 for-tho Leger; The, Pitsford being a great favourito,

?and quito, justifying all the confidante of his backer*.

!H«J ¡waa, the very picture of condition ; and there^is ' -nlways.a jeaifemna/y,'look about histhead; that -must command respect, oven,from bis opponents. Day and 'Martin, about whom fortunes were to be won, was very 'fit ; ,arid ifcondition could.have won 'the-- race ho-would . havo been thereabouts..,., As itwas, hpjiover showad pro . 'roiuenfly-in tho race,; after, the .firsfrget^away.-- Angler,

as'he]walked'in the enclosure, did not impress- us-with 'fitnèss-^he seèemed nötto liko it; ,and- waa. certainly too < ,fuU>of flesh,;.but> when ho bolted, ho waa ns good as 'any- thing, brid ot hera in the race thought ho >was< 'coming- to ,.jvin. ! Cossack'had not improved a bit sinco .Homebush indeed he-looked lesa fit to ru'n> than when he ran second to Beatrice there for tho Maiden Plate; but he finished garnely home. Bulgenbar is tho makings .of ia- geod horse i.and ran very well. He has a fine forehand ; but ' falls away behind, and is deficient in barrel. Somemis

takb must have been mado in Mr Lee's atable, for: Gazelle was thought nothing of, as compared with Sappho.- The chestnut lilly will grow into a good one; for from: tho running shu made, and the way sho lastbd homo, there can bo no doubt about her staying powers or gameness. Tim Whifllcr was rather full of flesh, but in spite of all that, he ran well to a certain point; and Pyra mus we rathor expected better things of. Pioneer, Alexandra, Littlo Bobin and Ludia, though all vory well to swell the field and th» stake, wero sadly out of place in auch a crowd. Warwick had very littlo trouble to settle the pretensions of Safeguard ; and Dundee regular- ly galloppod away from tho moderate lot that disputed his right to the Doncaster Handicap ; tho race being run without thc first and second nags being interfered with from start tp finish. Johnny Driscoll is . wonderfully good at getting away ; and if there is a little pull, toi be

got in the start he is pretty sure to.take it. The perform-1 ance of Pontifical was not calculated to give his stable !

much more confidence than they had in hint before. Generally speaking therarrangeumits .were.'M usual with tho A. J. C., very good. Tho starting tras quito Up to the/standard. Nothing could be better than the way in whioh the Leger nags were got away. If Pontifioal ohose to'stay at the post in preference to running for the Don-' caster Handicap, the starter must not bo held, answer^ abje ; and it appeared aa though the fault of Cir- cassian not getting away for tho two year old race, was very muah to be laid to his jockey. The grey horse, ridden by tho Deputy Clerk of tho Course, was t> little too playful for the work he had to do j but this is a small matter ; and beyond it we saw nothing that could hare been.improved. ¿ Hi« .Excellency and Lady Young, ac compsntediby/tha'Erinco do Condo, and attended'by Lord J^ohriTaylouf,' arrived on tho Course just before tho start for tho Trial Stakes ; and, having been conducted to that portion of tho stand set.apart for their accommoda "tiô'rj, rcmaihëB, enjoying 'tho sport, during ¿the. greater, part'of the afternoon.'

Round the turn tho paco was a cracker '; and Tho Barb,

who had been lyin; fifth on tho outside, came round his, horses with ii tremendous show of foot, and on landing fairly in the straight, looked as if ho was going to up- set the' " pot" and koep up the prestige of the yellow and black cap.

The lot got away Without n mistake, and »ll in a clus- ter, so closo togethor that for some .distance positions couldjnot bo assigned to any but tho, first one pr two. Ai far as we could see'from tho stand, Day arid.

By, the time the.rooks were passed,' tho pace had toll visibly upon some ¡of the JouVsido ' division ; and a' very Conspicuous " tail'; was established aa they rounded tho Denison .turn, In the meantime tho blaek jaokct of Mr X/te Mestre wai seen approaching'the front, as Tim ."Whiffler, went, up ai the back of the courso ; while, Anglór and ,tho favorite got on terms with their leaders, ani tho rear guard was hopelessly composed of Ludia; Alexandra," Little Bobin, Bod Pioneer. At tho top of the hill all those with any chanco bad. drawn up into good- positions, and among tliose'in thp front rank it looked. like anybody's race; As they made the turn for home, Angler,, who had :run up into second place on tho outside, cut ir, and ? bolted across .thp. course, right; under -the outside rails; and Fitsfdrd was eeou to come through his horses; and estab- lish himself in front on tho inside.

Why Thursday should bo called the first day of tha regular meeting it is not easy to say, for the Leger Hay is just as much part and parcel of the regulars as tiny of tho

others ; but for somo reason or other many peoplo seom > to hare got it into their heads that tho Sxturduy was a sort of Interloper. However, this has littlo to do witt tifo matter. . .Thursday was a very fino day, tho foj, ? which was thick in the early part, eleurod away before raco timo, a nice shower iu the morning had .laid.tho. dust, and rendered - a- trip - to ltondwick. by "no' means unpleasant. / 'A large Humber of visitors'-were ort

tThe arrangements, as on tho first day, arid aa indeed they; .'' always are at Randwick, were excellent-punctuality and

a perfect absence of .all confusion hoing ;tlie "prominent ». features.) and tito starting- was good, although tho field *

reason. < This time there has boen no white flag to drop ' " 'as the' horses left,tho post, and as in most cases tho,

starts have boen some diatanco behind it, tho time has had to betaken from tho'fall of tho red flag, and considerably

over the distance has'been run. We know that in soma'

cases careful and experienced tithers, with good watches, ' hive rrindo tho time a couple of seconds slower than that , ! officially given.' The first event of the day, tho' Cham'¿"'

pagno.Stakes, brought out tho Melbourne pair, witht '

Blondín arid Mies Ciorcehus. Of course it was looked ", ? upon as a certainty, and tho only betting was about ptab¿ ' ing the lot. Mr."Baldwin's colt jumped away witnshe"1 "Hook," and tho pair raced hoad »nd head for half ai '

Tho paco for the first half of thal ;

Tattondon, Pitsford, .Sultana, Sir Patrick/ Falcon, and Orneara had each been backed ; and aft»' sundry and .divers changes, the betting which in conse- quence, of the mysterious, aileneo maintained about. Tarragon, has'for tho last week been, , as far as he ws» concerned, a dead Icttor,;elosed on the previous evening,, àt the following ¡ pikes, the .Pitsford's Leger victory, having, brought him up considerably in the odds, his. friends believing it to be all over. 4 to 1 v Yattendon fa ' I1 v Sir Patrick, Pitsford and Bose of Australia ;. S. to 1 y Sultana and Falcon," and ten to ono against any

others. On. the coarse'there was no great amount of i business.actually.dorie, and the. closingprices,are given ' below. . The doubts, which have ta long enshrouded.*.

Tarragon'were 'by no* means cleared away "daring thc ' forenoon.. . The horra had : not arrived.- It was said that,, he'waa tb* come down by special train ; and some people were pufficiontly unbelieving not-to credit thiB. It was

not until Johnny Higgerson. was seen on tho course, and.. it was known that the horso had come, that any certainty existed ; and even then everybody waited to seo what h<*

'was like befbre'operatiitg about him. When he did come;,, into the. enclosure, ? there wero -various opinions about; him, and offers of 3 to 1 went plentifully begging) very many] peoplo attaching more mystery to him than ha' deserted.! Tho old horse was simply not fit to run,

and j though brought, there to run for his. backers'- ; moaey . and' give them a chance ' to,', hcdgo,: ho had ' no chance,-and had much better haye'' been kept at home. We must not be told, however, that the race proves-he had too much weight on him. Ha

couldn't haye won with a stone taken off. The great ,

,hprse' and 'hi's rider were-well cheered-tho former^ pulled up lame, and we thought was so before Btartirit?' Yattoudon attracted à great share'of attention; and welt

Union Jock and Canobio stripped under tho shod,'the latter looking anything but tip to th* mark,-and the other not exactly what ho was last year* when ho won tho samo raco for Noah Beal with only a

pound less than now to corry. In many quartern tho Pitsford was bookod a certainty, and in others Bose oj Australia was much fancied ; but though both looked" right well, they had no ohance, and the thrco year ote that looked so " well in, modo no show at tho finish, ' though tho littlo maro and Angler ran forward to », certain point.
