Barbarous I Let some great giuut group you by the hair of your head, and lift you from tlic ground by the hair only 1 Would you not struggle and squirm worse than the mute sheep does when lifted by the wool 1 And would lliero not be a complaint of a sorehead for n week or two?

Vocabulary of Racing Terms. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 2 June 1880
Vocabulary of Racing Terms. I PROMISED to «nligbtcn you as to certain racing terms and interesting turf practices. For example, what are the duties of a starter, a judge, a iiandicapper, &c. A starter in laige races has often consider able difficulty in getting bis field into line. This difficulty can be overcome if the starter backs one of the horses, in which ease he lowers his Sag the moment be sees bis backed horse with a clear lead of about twenty-five lengths. Next day the newspapers write, &lt;? Mr. got his horses away to a straggling start." Another good thing which a starter can do is to worty the borses, especially the favourite, by compelling them to go back, or to turn round. Once the favourite has his bead pointing to the rearward, tbe flag would be lowered, and the chances arc that the reporters will write, " The favourite was un fortunately left at the post." If the starter has power to influence the result of a race, the judge has still more. Tbc chie...
