Commenting on the results of rs - e^nt important races in the OldCoun-. try,. 'Pilot;' in .the 'Beferee,' wrote as follows on May 5: — The first of the important : English.; three-5'ear-old races, the Two Ttwa sand Guineas, vras rtm receml}', and was- won by Tetrcttema by three lengths, the other place-getters being Allenby (Bayardo — Tagalie) and Para gon (Radiran— Quintessence). Tetra tema was beaten 'r-r Silvern in the Grsenham Stakes about three weeks earlier, bat as that defeat did non cause him to lose bis position as Derby favorite it may, for some reason, have been excasabie. Silvern quickly lost the repatarton h« made by his defeat of Tetraisma. as he was one oi the unplaced in the Two Thousand. Tetra tema, as is generally known, is p. grcey colt, by tire Tetrarch from Scotch Gift (Synriijgicm — ^Maamd). Tetra tema is consefjaeotly half-brothsr To HaJf-a-Glags (by Isinglass), who is now in Queensland, Half-a-Glass, at bis best, could run a good 11 furlongs, but fca& no liking- for anything beyciwi it, and some of ;he English critics were of opinion Tetratem3. would n^t get a mile and & half. Perhaps they are ncsv inclined to. modify tbeir opin ions on that score, I^ast season Tet ratemfc was not defeated, wixmingr i?v« rac&a and. £20,951 in stakes. A line record, taut not equal to that of his sire. The '.Petrarch, who was also un beaten as a two-year-onl, and -whose seven wins at that age, returned £13, 336 in stakes. Tetratema vcas net foaled until April 27 — wjnivalent to November 27 in .the Australian seewm
— and as the season progresses he may i make greater improvement than some j of the other pi«omiiient three-year- j olds. For the sake of English back- i .. ers, it is to be coped Tetratema does : not go -the way of last year's Tt«- j Thousand Guineas' wiimer5 The 1-an- j ther, who, -on the strength of Ma sec- } ?Jess In that race was banked down to | 5 to 3 fox the Derby, arrl tsus one of ; zhe last four to finish.. i In each substitute Derby nra at ! iVewmarket, backers fared well, Pom- j tnera winning- at 11 to 10, Fifii-eHa at ! LI to 2, Gay Crusader at 7 to 4, ani j .^ iiainsborough at 13 to s ou. The last ^; throe:: Derbies- at ?psom -wer6,*.-Jwwr.| ever,'- costly to punters, Aboy-e«r win- i .nfcg- at 10 Oto 1 in 1915, Dnrbar IL at ! if} to 1 in lyii, and Grand Parade ?% \ 33 to 1 last year. Carslake was on | Tetratema in the Two ThousrmQ,' and ' will' be' on him in the Derby, a race in which' an Australian rider has j-fct to b^ successful. Carslake must be wearing- particularly well, seeing it is 15 years since we saw him win the Doncaater Handicap at Sandwick oa Famous, and. be was fairly heavy tbt?i. Allenby ran iwlce last season for a first and a third, acsS Paragon six times for two firsts, two seconds and a third. The latter was sold ±-s a ., yearlinG for 720 gnineas, and Teira teroa and Afienby were bred by their respective owners. Paragon is not hi tb© Derby, fcoit Alienby i?, ar.d is second fesc&me at about noable the odds on offer against Teiratema. Sarclw-ioi- is third in demand, with Prince Galabaxi next, while Oraheus, for wbxmx an American offer of f 20,G0t waa refused at the cammencem-mc of tbe. year, is now at a rather long price. He has evidently not come up to ex pectations. --
