MELBOURNE, Soptembor 5.

Intrepid fell in the Steeplechase nt Caulfield yesterday, and broke his neck.

Through taking off too far at a fence in the Steeplechase at Caulfield yestor day the favourite, King's County, got into the obstacle, and broke his forearm. An effort will be mndo to save him.

First acceptances for the Epsom Metro- politan are duo this afternoon. Socond forfeit is to be declared oa the Thursday preceding each race.

Lochnagah, by Lochnair out of Are- thusa, the property of Mr. J. B. Clift, was awarded champion honours for blood stallion at the recent Gunnedah (N.S.W.) Show. Tho old Prince Charlie horse Lochiel, who was good at any distance from two furlongs to three miles, being dead and gone, it has come to be recog- nised that any stallion decently bred on the mare's side and bv Lochiel or one of his sons, should bo weil patronised at tho


M. Ryan, the Sydney jockey, who was over here riding for Mr. W. N. Willis, is right out of luck. Ho had only just recovered .from one accident when at

Cuntcrbury-park on Saturday he had a collar-bone broken, and received injuries to his back as a result of E.K.W. falling with him in tlio Hurdle Raco. He WBB Tomoved to a hospital. (

A. Stacey, the Adelaide trainor, has, reaohed Caulfield with the racehorses Young Fred (an aged gelding, by Gozo Necklace, brother to the ill-fated Cordon), and an untried three-year-old filly by

Fortune Teller.

Six applications wero received for the position of handicapper to the-Port Ade- laide Pacing Club, which had been ren- dered vacant by the resignation of ' Mr. W. C. Hughes. The committee appoint- ed Mr. P. Goudie.

Concerning the disqualification of the racehorse Ellis in west Australia, the injunction was based on the claim that Lauder was not present during the whole of the inquiry. Rule 18a, which deals with the matter, says:-"No decision given upon any inquiry into any charge or complaint against any person, or into any objection against any horse under

theso rules, shall bo valid or of any effect unless the person against whom tho charge or complaint, or against whoso hoi«! the objection shall havo been made, shall have been afforded an opportunity of-(a) attending the inquiry, (b) hearing all the ovidence given thereat, (c) cross examining all witnesses who shall have given eyidenco thereon, (d) being heard and giving and adducing evidence on his own behalf." It bas been cabled that in tho effort on tho part of the West Australian Turf Club to dissolve the in- junction, the judge said that the stewards had not complied with the rules,, and ehould have given clear and unraistak ablo notice that a complaint was being made against Lauder, in order to ensure his attendance, '

Tho Positano colt, Pósito, has changed hands, his new owner being Mr. J. H. Hindnugh, a well-known sportsman of the Western District of Victoria.

Admiral Hawke, own brother to tho famous maro Pretty Polly, easily defeated tho favourite, Mistrelln (F .Wootton), in the Levant Stakes, of .£1,045, for two year-olds, at Goodwood on July 28. The English public ne\cr seemed to have taken kindly to Admiral Hawke, and ho was neglected in the betting. This bril- liant performance will bring him into greater favour.

His Majesty King Edward VII. and Queen Alexandra were present to see Minoru win tho Sussex Stakes at Good vpood last month in a common canteT. It was a race with pennlties, and Minoru carried 9.8. Only two others 9tarted Préster- Jack npd Verney.

As learned by cable, Flavel shares favouritism with Bluo Book for the A.J.C Metropolitan. This is how "Mil- roy" of the ..Sydney Mail" sums up tho chances of Mr. S. M. Wilson's horse: - "Flavel is a Flnvus, bred by Mr. E. R. White at Merton, and is out of Lady Kernel, by Prince Chester from the Goldsbrough mare Philopena, one of the Cocoanut tribe, which has produced many good racehorses, including, of course, such smashers ne Navigator, Trident, Coil. .Cobbitty, and Cocos. In Tas- mania Flavol was as good as the best of the locals, bat Jack Smith gave him 121b7 and an easy beating in the Hobart Cup, which sounds anything but reassuring. Of course, the colt may have n.nde con- siderable progress, which doubtless he has, since he met the erratic littlo Vic- torian, who, to my way of thinking, is always a bad horse when ho meets a good one that will go at him and put rude questions to him before ho has time to think. After the Hobart meeting Flu vel went on to Launceston, and was de- feated in the Cup by Golden Gate, a colt of his own ago, to whom ho was conceding 31b., and whom ho beat in the Hobart Cup at a difference of a pound in his fav- our. There is nothing very attractive about the turf record of Golden Gate, ex-, cept as a six-furlong sprinter, but all the' same ho and Flavel both defeated De lenda in the Launceston Cup, giving him weight. Dolenda-then came back to Mel- bourne, and should have won, some people think, tho Australian Cup from Pendil, who was giving him a pound. In this race Flavel was out of a place with 6.12, and, judging by his appearance when he came to Sydney Inter ne could not hove been in the best of nick, for ho looked very washed ont and weak when ho arrived at Randwick, and it took Kelso samo time to get him into any- thing like bloom again. Thero was some talk a while back of Ambassador being Kelso's sheet anchor, aad a good one at that, for ope of tho spring handicaps, ? if not the double; but his running nt Rose- hill puts him right out of consideration

for eithor of these evants. For six fur- longs of the mile . which ho was called upon to negotiate at Rosehill Ambassa- dor was pulling Pike out of the saddle,

but when it came to tho finish bo melted away uko snow before fire, and finished badly behind the unexpected Master


In Hungary and Austria thoroughbfeds imported as foals with their dams acquire all the rights of native horses; thorefors they are qualified to take part in all races, but when imported without dam.oi later during their yearling days, they can- not qualify for all races-only for a small proportion of them. Last year Mr. do Szcmere brought in a motion to enable owners to buy yearlings in foreign coun- tries, and to grant to those the qualifica- tion of native horses, supposing the owners are willing to pay an import tax of 250SOVS. per head. At a recent meet- ing of tbo Hungarian Jockey Club the Szemero proposal (as it was called) was carried, but, with a view to future brood mares, granted only for fillies, opening to them nearly all tho greater events that ^a're "for Continental-bred horses, except French-bred ones." Colts are debarred this favour. The amount of tho paid im- port taxes will bo used -for breeding pur- poses, chiefly for importing mares, and fjrst-class stallion«

Tho death of Mr. R. M. Morton last week removes the oldest continuous mem- ber of the Canterbury (N.Z.) Jockey Club, ho having been elected in 1858 or 1859. For many years ho wa« a fteward and a commiiteoman, and rendered yeoman ser- vice on the course committee, ,nnd took a prominent part in planting the race- course resoryo. In the old days Mr. Mor- ten was an owner of racing stock, and in 1870 his filly Maid of the Mist ran third in the Canterbury Derby to Mr. Douglas'« Malabar, Mr. Brabazon's Waterwitch be- ing second.
