AUSTRALIAN GREYHOUNDS IN ENGLAND. In the London "Field" of 15th November, ap. peared the following appreciation of the Australian bred greyhcunds forming the team 'which Mr. Oscar Asche had selected while on his visit in Australia, with the view of testing locally bred greylounds in the leading English meetings: "The present seassn is likely to prove of a more interesting character than usual for the reason that greyhounds from other countries have arrived, and it is expected that they will put ip an appear ance at some of the important meetings. Several well-knownl Russian performers are already in training, notably Count Cheremtieltfs Chekan, the winner of the last Russian \ataerloo Cup, and three weeks ago five of the best Australian bred greyhounds were landed in England, and are now in quarantine at Messrs.

COURSING GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
COURSING C8081P. BY HOTSPUR. With reference to the sale of the 3lat English Waterloo Cup winner, Hung Well, there appears to have been some unsavory business in connection w'ith the .dog's purchase at the dispersal sale of air. S. HIill-Wood's greyhounds in April last. It would appear that it was well-known in coursing circles that until hli. sale to Mr. C. B. Ifanbutry, he was the joint property of MIr. H.ill. Wood and two other gentlemen, the joint ow nership being officially registered in the Stud ,look; but upon discovering what a strong feeling of disapproval existed in -the coursing world in oennection with the sale of 3Mr. Iill-Wood's grey. hounds HIung Well's joint purchasers had no wish to re':ain him. Mr. Hill-Wood, indeed, ask.d his partners to relieve hin of his joint own.r ship, but they also felt that they mght be launch. ed into an unsavory position, ard advised that the dog should either be publicly offered for sale or retired to the stud. lie is now the absolute pro...
