THE STRENGTH OF RANDWICK TRAINERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 18 August 1910

THE STRENGTH OF RANDWICK TRAINERS. One of the 'largest and most important strings is that of Frank McGrath. It is expected «in some quarters that Duke Foote is another Prince Foote in disguise, but he has never started yet, though he works well on the trac.ks and is a fine looking three-year-old colt by Sir Foote from Ortelle. Another useful member of his team is King Foote, by Sir Foote from La Crosse, Gold Thread is a fine mare,, arid should win a race at the big meeting] Prince Foote is on the tracks, and looks well. Other members of his team that are likely to distinguish them selves are Call Boy, John Porter, Tanami. Plunder, Baal Gammon, Desert Rose, Gold Pan, and several fashionably bred two-year-olds, making a total of 26. The champion 'chaser, Grafnax, is a 'member of the team. . . G. Gallimore always has a fair number of horses in work, and is .very, pains taking. Just now he has no champions, but Leuron, Blue Hook, Didus, Rhoebus, Sir Simpleton, ,Blac'.k Alick, Maintenon,...

DERBY PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 18 August 1910

DERBY PROSPECTS. - ; Saturday's running at Rosehill threw ''? a little more light on the A.J.C. and V.R.C. Derby prospects. Du.ke Foote, in winning the Maiden Handicap for three-year-olds, created a favorable impresfeion by his ap pearance and style of' going, : as he finished well over the last furlong. Blue Gem, another Derby candidate, was : second, and she, too, finished .well, .but Duke Foote was certainly, the gentleman . of the lot* possessing size anil , appearance, ueing, su mi as uie lunucr qiiuiij.iuuLii.in js concerned, a better class of horse than Prince Foote. Gigandra won the;Dun0as '| Handicap against all ages, and.; thoiigh ?'; he tired a bit at the end, he won a good ? '/. race. He Avas making his first ?' appear- j ance , since last spring, and certainly, .-; looked a magnificent horse, every inch a. i_,i Derby colt, but it is doubtful /if he is the ;' kind of colt to run out a mile and a?balf.

The contractor is nothing but a money-grabbing individual, Avho lives on the sweat and blood of the Avorker. The Union should make an effort' to get a standard price 'for sleepers fixed by Act of Parliament, .the Commissioners to takeUelivery at any railway station or siding in the State, inspectors or station, master to act as pay master, and sleeper* to be paid for when passed. It would be a much better system,- as there would then be no fluctuations in'tlie market. It Avould then be practically a State industry, and if 'there Avere any profits accruing from the industry the State AA'ould benefit as a Avhole.
