    SPORTING INTELLIGENCE – A match which has created great interest in the sporting circle came off on Monday last, between Mr. O’Reilly’s grey horse Irishman, and Mr. Sutton’s horse Slasher, for a considerable sum, over the Parramatta Races Course ; Irishman ridden by Dunne, and Slasher by Jones. Slasher was the favourite before starting, so much so that he was backed freely at 6 and 6 to 4 against Irishman, it being the general opinion that Irishman would bolt; but the very superior riding of Dunne put the chance of his winning on that scour out of the question. The first heat Slasher made the running for the first mile, when Dunne it would appear thought that it a waste of time to wait longer, went to the head, and never gave Slasher a lead until he won the heat. The second heat was won with great ease by Irishman, proving that the would-be knowing ones know nothing about the superior speed and stoutness that he was possessed of. They been let into a secret, the acquiring of which will not be forgotten by many of them for some time, as a good deal of money changed owners upon the occasion. Irishman has proved himself a trump; and his rider appears not to have forgotten the early instruction which he has received at that famous school for jockeys, The Curragh of Kildare. – Correspondent.

    SOME representation having been made that Mr. Charles Roberts, had an opportunity of seeing the horse "Ragman," when in my keeping ; I beg leave to state that if such an assertion has been made by that Gentleman it is entirely without foundation. Since I have been in the Colony it has been my study, as a "Trainer and a Jockey," to give satisfaction to my employer's and that on the occasion of the late race at Parramatta, had I rode the horse with spurs on, the result of the first heat would have been different.

    TURF CLUB.-We understand that a regular ? such as it should be, is in course of forming. Gentlemen sans peur et sans reproche are the stewards and judges, and there will be no ? of the jockey squabbling and trickery which has but too much disgraced our turf hitherto. The last race at Parramatta, or rather the false representations which have been made about it ? additional evidence of the necessity of some ? arrangement. There was, we believe, some good racing, but the result was nil. The sweep ? were 75l., but Mr. Holden refused to judge the prize; the stakes were retained, and bets were drawn. There are, we have been ? several horses in training, which have not ? yet, nor will, until the management is respectable as well as responsible.

    Mr. Rater's b. c. "Cap-a-pie," 4 yrs. (Coulston)
    Mr. C. Robert's c. c. " The Colonel," 4 years, (Dunn.)
    This was decidedly the best race that took place during the day, the contest being very severe, "Cap-a-pie" winning by a mere trifle. The three miles was done in six minutes fourteen seconds.

    Original Correspondence.

    HOMEBUSH RACES.

    TO THE EDITOR OF THE FREE PRESS.

    March 18, 1841,

    SIR — Your contemporaries have reported
    that Eleanor jostled, and on that account,
    lost the race.

    I have to inform you that Eleanor did
    not jostle — that her rider was a boy unac-
    quainted with the knavery of the course.
    To say that Eleanor jostled for the pur-
    pose of winning, is absurd ; Eleanor's rider
    was, I repeat, a boy. The riders who pre-
    tend to have been jostled, were Dunn and
    Siggerson (sic), well known characters on the
    Australian turf.

    Eleanor, notwithstanding this defeat, is
    ready to run either Flirt or Zephyrine for
    £500 to £1000.

    Yours. &c.,

    EQUES.

If the sport of racing is to be carried on, respectable jockeys who can be relied on must be secured, or parties will not venture to risk their money on the issue of a race...We have heard that Dunn actually rode Beeswing across the Course at twelve o'clock on Wednesday night, which in consequence of her lameness, assisted in preventing her taking her proper place in the sport of the succeeding day..."

    Jorrocks was also entered for this race, but did not start. Sir Charles was the favorite. Sir Charles took the lead at the start, closely followed by Eclipse, which position was maintained during the heat, till close up to the winning chair, when Eclipse shot ahead, and won by half a length. The second heat Sir Charles again took the lead, but in passing the winning chair the first time round Eclipse again went ahead, and kept his place throughout. Quail was a considerable distance behind in both the heats. Eclipse was ridden by Dunn, and Sir Charles by Batkin. The race through out was well contested, but it was plain after the start of the second heat, that Eclipse must win.

    REMARKS.-Sir Charles took the lead, at a killing pace, for the first mile and a half, when Jorrocks and Lottery challenged him ; the rider of Sir Charles then pulled off, finding the pace did not suit his condition, and on mounting the hill the second time, after passing the winning post, it was verv clear his chance of the race was gone ; Jorrocks maintained the lead to the top of the hill, when Lottery collared him, and at the turn for the run in, was two lengths a- head ; at the distance the old horse again came up, when, after a splendid race home, Lottery won by a neck. Betting-Jorrocks even v. the field 3 to 2 v. Lottery, 3 to 2 v. Sir Charles. Condition-Lottery and Jorrocks all right ; Sir Charles looked more fit for boiling down than racing, in consequence of having been amiss on two occasions within the last six weeks-he was short of work.


    THIRD RACE.

    The Ladies' Purse of forty sovereigns, with a sweepstakes of five sovereigns each, for all horses, weight for age. Heats, one mile and a half.

    Mr. C. Roberts's br. h. Lottery, 4 years, 9st. 3lbs., (Dunn) ..1 1

    Mr. Badkin's ns. br. c, Election, 3 years, 8st. .... 2 2

    Mr. Heydon's ch. h. Young Dover, (late Topgallant) 5 years, 9st. 8lbs. .... 3 3

    Mr. W. Hunter's b. g. Bob Sawyer, 5 years, 9st. 5lbs. .... 4 4

    Time-First heat, 2 minutes 55 seconds ;
    won easily by a length ; second heat, 2 minutes
    56 seconds ; won by a length, after a severe
    struggle.
    REMARKS.-In the first heat all got away well together, at the top of the hill it was very clear Lottery had it all his own way, Dunn having a good pull and waiting on Election ; in the second heat, Bob Sawyer cut out the running for the first three-quarters of a mile, when Election went to the head ; at the run in, Dunn, who had been waiting with Lottery came out, and at the distance collared Election, beating him by a length, after a severe struggle. Betting, Lottery even v. the field ; 3 to 2 v. Election ; 2 to 1 v. Bob Sawyer. Young Dover and Bob Sawyer both appeared out of condition.


    THIRD DAY.

    FIRST RACE.

    The Cumberland Stakes of Five Sovereigns each, with Fifty Sovereigns added, for all horses, twice round the course.

    Mr. Higginson's b. g. Jorrocks, aged, 9st. 9lbs. .... 1

    Mr. C. Roberts's br. h. Lottery, 4 years, 9st.3lbs. .... 2

    Mr. Badkin's br. c. Election, 3 years, 8st. (drawn) ..... 0

    Time-5 minutes 11 seconds.

    REMARKS - The running was very even until mounting the hill the second time, Lotterv then went to the head about two lengths, which he maintained to the distance, where the old horse collared him, and after one of the most severe struggles ever witnessed on the Homebush Course, beat him by a neck. It is the general opinion of the turfites that Dunn was wrong in taking the lead at the top of the hill, he should have saved himself for a rush at the finish. In consequence of Jorrocks running wide many thought he had lost the race, on the result being announced, the cheering in honour of the old veteran proved the general gratification it afforded.


    SECOND RACE.

    The Homebush Stakes of five sovereigns, with thirty sovereigns added ; heats, once round.

    Mr. C. Roberts's br. h. Lottery, 4 years, 9st. 3lbs (Dunn) .... 1 1

    Mr. W. Hunter's b. f. Peri, 3 years, 7st 11lbs ... 2 2

    Mr. Heydon's ch. h. Young Drover, late Top Gallant, 5 years, 9st 8lbs .... 3 3

    Mr. Badkin's ns. b. g. Escape, 6 years, 9st. 9lbs. .... 4 4

    Time-fist heat, 2 minutes 31 seconds , second heat, 2 minutes 32 seconds.

    REMARKS -Lotterv won both heats very easy.

This man seems to think it a very clever trick to bustle and foul upon a race course-he esteems it a bit of jockeyship, but if persons riding against him, were to adopt the trifling precaution of carrying the fifth or sixth cut into operation upon his frontispiece, the animal would soon tame down into a fair rider.

    TURF.
    ON Tuesday last, the match which had been for some time pending between Mr. Hamilton's b. Mare and Mr. G. Seymour's b. h. Lottery, for £20 aside, came off on the Windsor Race Course. Previous to starting, the Mare was decidedly the favorite, in consequence of her having been trained by old Dunn, who is at present attending the celebrated old Jorrocks. Indeed, it was rumoured that the old horse could not get away from her in a mile. However, the sequel proved this to be all bunkum, at 3 p. m. the horses were brought to the post ; Micky Bryan mounted on Lottery, and Johnny Dunn on the Filly our sporting Steward, W. S. Boyles, Esq., being requested to act as umpire. On starting, Lottery took the lead, going away at a slapping pace, closely followed by the mare to the hill, where she collared him, for the remaining distance the pace was desperate, Lottery winning by a length only-time, 2 minutes 4 seconds. Second heat-both horses went away at score, neck and neck to the first turning, where some little jostling took place-and Mickey lost his Equilibrium. However, he soon regained his seat, but his chance for the heat was lost, by having too much leeway to make up, and the mare won by about a neck. This circumstance caused general tumult, not only between the betters, but the jocks, and we really thought that poor old John Dunn would have been annihilated. Matters being peaceably arranged, they again started, and a better or more closely contested heat we never saw. Neck and neck was the order from the swamp-Lottery winning by half a neck. Dunn lost his whip a few strides from home, we verily believed this would have been a dead heat. The pleasure of winning appeased the wrath of Mickey, and we are happy to say that he and old Johnny are again good friends ; and the little
    mistake is attributed to good generalship.

    "REMARKS.-On coming to the post, both horses stripped in first-rate condition, the odds being in favour of Dr. Syntax, from his reputed speed for a single mile race. At the word off, Syntax jumped away, and made two or three lengths a-head, to the corner, when President made a bolt for the wattles, and Dunn, in his endeavours to stop him, lost his whip, in attempting to recover which, he lost his stirrup also. At this stage of the race the odds were so decidedly in favour of the Doctor, that no bets could be made. Old Dunn, however, on President, now proved that his judgment in riding a losing race is unequalled ; he gathered his horse together, made play, challenged Syntax, at the corner, and beat him easily, Dunn holding his horse hand in hand, and having through the race declined administering punishment, it not being necessary, Justice was done to Dr. Syntax by young Cutts, a decidedly first-rate rider."

    The long talked-of match between the two year old colts Saltpetre and Whale-bone has at length assumed a tangible shape. These horses are first-rate specimens of the blood stock of the Colony as two years old, thoroughbred, and boast of a first-class line of blood…The backers of Saltpetre have, with the consent of the owner, placed him in the hands of the veteran Dunn, who we all know is a first-rate trainer... We are glad to find that Dunn has now a chance of bringing out a winner, at least in Saltpetre he .has something to work on, and his excellent system of training will, we have no doubt, be responded to by the colt.

    FOIGH-A-BALLOCH AND DR. SYNTAX.

    -The match between the above-named horses for £50 aside will come off on the Penrith Course on Wednesday next, two mile heats. Lots of money can be had in Sydney on the Irishman, who has taken his training under the invincible Old Dunn.

    THE GREAT MATCH AT HOMEBUSH

    FOR £200 A-SIDE.

    On Tuesday this important trial between Mr. Tait's Whalebone and Mr. G. C. Turner's Saltpetre-the two leading 3-year olds of the day-was brought to a close in favor of the elastic bone. Our sporting readers will recollect that these two nags were to have met in the Trial Stakes last year, but the Bathurst horse was amiss, and did not-start...Not willing to concede the palm without a struggle for its possession, Mr. Tait resolved upon challenging the Colony, and after great delays the articles of this match were closed.

    The horses are excellent specimens of our best blood stock,...

    The race, as might have been anticipated, created considerable interest, and though but comparatively few were on the course to witness the event, we have reason to believe that large amounts changed hands on its result.

    The Sydney horse had been under the guidance of old Dunn, supposed to be the best trainer in the colony, while Bill Cutts, of Penrith, regulated the dietary and exercise tables of the Bathurst horse, and the admirable condition in which the horse was brought to the post speaks highly of his professional capabilities.

    Soon after noon away they went, weighted as below.

    Mr. John Tait's br. c. Whalebone, 3 yrs. 8 st, (Cutts) .. 1

    Mr. G. C. Turner's b. c. Saltpetre, 3 yrs., 8 st. (Dunn). 2

    Of the running little or nothing can be said. Dunn went off as if disposed to lead but the pace was not sufficiently severe for his antagonist, who closed and headed to the hill, where superior strength became apparent ; at the distance the nags were nearly abreast, and the pace improved ; Whalebone, however, still led round up the second hill, at the brow any odds were to be had against the winner of the Trial Stakes, nor could the severity of Dunn's punishment save his horse from defeat. Whalebone took the race, 3 miles and 160 yards, by two lengths, in 5 minutes 25 seconds, amongst the most uproarious acclamations of several Bathurst hobbledehoys, who seemed to regard the matter as partaking more of a local scrimmage than of a great and worthy object of patriotic emulation.

    To T. R. Johnson, Esq.

    SIR,-Its been reported after the late match between Saltpeter and Whalebone, that Dunn either rode the horse Saltpetre foul, or brought him out rong ; but now is the time to prove it or not. Although it has been said that Saltpeter is now one distance abeter horse, but time needs no comment, as it will spake for itself, but Dunn will bet any of those courdly ruffians who trys to enger him every way in public, Twenty (£20) to Ten that Whalebone beats him for the St. Ledger Stakes, although it is one mile shorter.-(I do not allude to the owner of
    Saltpeter.

    -The money is ready any time the cole on Me, J Dunn ; I ales cution all my Friends not to back L. Terition as she has not time as yet to get over her late lameness at Winsor, as she had been Bled in Both Toes and Jugler vean and had adose of Physic.

    To the Editors of Bell's Life.

    GENTLEMEN,-As the leaders of the sporting circles, I most respectfully appeal to you, in order to set at rest a question that has been mooted relative to the late Meeting at Homebush. With the somewhat marvellous idiosyncracy of Mr. This or Mr. That I have little to do ; but, surely the reputation of a jockey is not to be damned by the idiotic lucubrations of any insane pretender whose-is more bulky than his brains, and who almost consequently claims the right of dictation in spheres where neither effort nor education could entitle him to enter.

    I am unfortunately like Mark Anthony, "a plain, blunt man," otherwise I should raise the racing posts to mutiny ; but my character has ever been secure, and I am resolved to keep it intact. Full fourteen years have I struggled on the Australian Turf in the arduous capacities of Trainer, Stud Groom, and Jockey, and proudly do I lay my hand upon my heart, as I feel the warmth of its honest impulse; yes, Gentlemen, its systole and diastole, and its pause, (there I must also pause) its auricular contraction and expansion, its every feeling, is regulated on the principles of equity ; and happily can I appeal to Charley Smith for a karacter for honesty and good faith.

    I deny in toto the slanderous assertions of Mr. Joseph Roberts ; I abhor his malice ; I despise his cunning ; and I thus publicly refute his calumny.

    Yours very obediently,

    JOHN DUNN.

    THE QUICKEST TWO MILES IN THE COLONY - A question
    from an esteemed correspondent as to the best time of a two
    miles event on record in the colony, was submitted to us a fort-
    night back and after devoting considerable time to the investi-
    gation we have no hesitation in naming the race for the
    Maitland Town Plate in we think, the year 1840, between the
    late Mr Charles Smith's b.h. Clifton, 3yrs 7st 6lbs, and Mr.
    Charles Roberts' bl.m. Lady Cordelia, 6yyrs, 9st. 3lbs. Clifton
    was by Skeleton (imported), dam Spacwife, by Soothsayer, out
    of Cuttysark, by Oxford, dam Fidget mare. Lady Cordelia by
    Emigrant (imported), dam Woodbine, by Camerton. Emigrant
    by Pioneer, out of Ring-tail, own sister to Deceiver, by Buzzard.
    Clifton was trained by Old Dunn and ridden by our Champion
    jockey, Higgerson, then a youth of seventeen. Lady Cordelia
    was trained by our very old and much respected friend Mr
    William Cutts, and ridden by Noble. The horses were brought
    to the post in superb condition, and three such heats were
    certainly never run in N. S. Wales, nor probably in any other
    country. The racing in each was from the jump. The 1st heat
    was done in 3 min. 50 secs. The 2nd heat in 3 min 49 secs. The
    3rd heat was a dead heat in 3 min. 48 secs! the horses had
    run to a stand-still, and it was mercifully agreed to divide the
    stakes, Clifton walking over to entitle him to the plate. - Bell's
    Life, March 20 -[Our contemporary s in error - several horses
    Fix this texthave ran two miles in less time. - EDS. M. M.]

    "...Another of the noted jocks of those days was Johnny Dunn, a Curragh of Kildare man. Who that can remember him but will bear me out, if the Darwinian theory had then been advanced, that lad Johnny was the missing link between the tailless ape and human nature-a mannikin in statue, but a giant in strength when mounted, with judgment sufficient to win or lose a race without anyone being the wiser-a kind of handy man, who would have ridden to orders if the halter was round his neck? He was at that time the most consummate jockey that ever crossed a pigskin in the colonies-great judgment, a keen eye for a chance, hands and feet that could hold the veriest rogue that ever was crossed, and a pair of heels that knew no mercy when the occasion required, yet, withal, he was the tenderest horseman to a good one that one could ever wish to see..."

    "DEATH OF A FAMOUS JOCKEY.
    The Cumberland Times reports that John Dunne, the celebrated jockey, well known in sporting circles, has run his last race, and time with him is now no more. He died at his residence, near Blacktown, on Tuesday last. Before coming to the colonies Dunne had been in the service of the Marquis of Waterford, and did some good work with that nobleman's horses. About forty years ago Dunne came to this country, and during that time there has not been, perhaps, a man who has seen more sporting or done so much hard riding as he did ; and there are many anecdotes told of him and his exertions to bring himself to the proper riding weight required ; he has even been known to reduce his weight two stone in a very short time. The last time we recollect seeing him he was riding his old horse, Engineer, at the Parramatta Races.Deceased had been complaining for about twelve months before his death, and he was, we believe, 65 years of age."

    Though he had one more start afterwards, Jorrocks may be said to have finished his racing career, when he ran third to Pasha and Almack in the race for the Burwood Cup and Salver…It was run for on the third day of the A.J.C. meeting in May at Homebush…The famous old jockey, Dunn, was up on Jorrocks, who then left the turf.

    In the history of early Australian racing cracks, Plover ranks second to the renowned Jorrocks. They were worthy opponents…Put aside until May, 1847, he sported his owner’s colors for the first time as a four-year-old in the A.J.C. Welter, at Homebush. Old Dunn had the mount on the colt, and he made short work of that good performer, Johnny Hekl.
