COLERAINE RACES. At the Coleraine St Patrick's day races last week, the Coleraine "Al bion" writes :-A considerable amount of speculative interest was naturally ;centred in the reappearance of Kirby's Parisian (winner of the Melbourne Cup in 1911) in the race for the St Patrick's Cup; but age ((rI years), and weight (14 stone 9 Ibs), tell ad .-qrsely on horses as well as mankind in time. Nothing daunted there were :those who liked Parisian's chance for the Ladies' Bracelet; but here again fate willed otherwise, and just when finishing the preliminary canter, and when going to the post, the Parisian broke down and the race became a .'atch between Cernarney arid Noh chalant. Tn this case it would ab.nia the. public have seen the last of Pa risian on any course.
