NEW YEAR MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 6 January 1899
NEW YEAR MEETING. Owing to the very inclement weather on Monday the annual meet of the Stanley Turf Club was postponed till the following day but there was little im- &nbsp; provement in the state of the elements on Tuesday, -and it was quite late in the afternoon before it was any better. Then, although there was no rain, a fierce gale continued to blow, and turned very cold &nbsp; towards evening. The rough weather and adjournment mitigated against the &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; attendance; there being not quite 200 &nbsp; people on the ground, among whom were very few of the gentler sex. Mr Hill's and Mr C. Medwin's stables were not repre- sented, owing to some misunderstanding as to date of postponement. The racing was fairly good, and winners were freely backed and evenly divided among the competitors. The old sport Tom Berechree annexed every event he entered for ; his wins were extremely popular, as they &nbsp; ...
