MORNING GALLOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 7 April 1887

MORNING GALLOPS* Work at Randwick on Monday morning was not very interesting, and beyond Nel son registering agoodmiloanda-half there is littlo to record. Tom Brown was not fully extended for a couple of rounds, when Chesham and Blairgowrie did fairly well together, and old Willeroo acquitted him self creditably. Perfnme went excellently for six furlongs, and Abercorn kept her company. Emerald was not fully extended. Cranbrook, ? Carlyon, and Esperanco went gently, and Trident went along strongly for a once round, when Hexham brought him home the last mile. ? Kohai was asked to do very little, and the New Zealand colt Niagara and Marmion cantered. On Tuesday morning the weather was wet, but a good number of touts present. About twenty minutes to 0 o'clock Tristan and Home Rule had a good go on the course proper, finishing up with a great run homo.

Yates led from the jump and won by 100 yards. . ' On the 21st May, the Grafton Club hold their annual regatta. Xt is said tnat the club is very strong, and includes some very fair pullers. . At Eden, as an outcome of the recent regatta, it is said that, a double sculling match is to be rowed between Tier and Black, of Merimbula, and Powor and Davidson, of Eden. XI 00 is talked about as the amount of stake, and the race, if arranged, will bo rowed either on Merim bula Lako or Twofold Bay. After all the talk about Queensland and Tasmania being represented on the Parra matta in the intercolonial eight-oar con test, it now looks as if only New South Wales and Victoria will fight for supremacy.
