    The racing at the T.T.O. Meet was excellent, and tbe most exacting critic could not depart with not a feeling of satisfaction. The favorites, too, had a big share of the wins, and thus hackers of the winners were many. Beginning with the Trial 8teeple, for which a field of five started, Charlie Grover, an upetandlug Bjr old, by Townley from Blsloore, was considered next to a
    certainty, bnt be did not jamp so well as

    It will be three years next May since Spieler won the Birthday Steeplechase at the Carrick Club meeting. Later on Mr J. T. Field parted with her, and she went to Victoria. . After racing over the fences at Caulfied and the suburban courses, Spieler carried 9st 5ib to victory at Flemington, and at the Melbourne Cup meeting of 1898 ran third in the Victoria Steeplechase to Domino and Tremolo. Being again sold, Spieler was taken to Sydney, and signalled her appearance at Randwick by showing the field the way home over the big timber at the A.J.C. Boxing Day gathering. She again triumphed at Tattersall's Club meeting early in the following year, and, after finding a new owner, sported silk in Victoria several times without success. Eventually Spieler accounted for the Grand Annual Steeplechase at the Bendigo Jockey Club meeting on June 7, 1899, and last year again, succeeded in winning that event. . This day week at Caulfield there were only four runners in the Stanley Steeplechase, which Spieler won by three lengths from Euro, a son of the Tasmanian-bred Kangaroo. The win- ner carried 9st, started at 6 to.l, and was piloted by Wafer Douglas, well known in this State as a cross-country horseman. According to the turf regis ters, 'Spieler's breeding is untraceable, although one who professes to know a secret, has asserted that she is a daugh- ter of Creswick.

    Spieler, the steeplechase mare who came to Victoria from Tasmania last year, and who was trained at Caulfleld by I. Foulsham (and by him sold to a Sydney racing man), would appear to be quite a champion in the mother colony. Following upon her vic tory in the Steeplechase last week, she scored again at Randwick yesterday. Spie ler's Iast appearance at Flemington was on the last day of the Cup meeting last year, when she fell at the stone wall when going nicely .
