MAIL NEWS. HURDLE RACING A QUARTER OF A CENTURY AGO AND NOW. [Newspaper Article] — Warwick Argus — 4 May 1880
MAIL NEWS. HURDLE RACING A QCAUTER OP CENTUEV AGO AND NOW. RACING men of a past generation would have been somewhat astonished bad they been present in the body at the recent Sundown Park meeting and seen a four-year-old BO early in the year carry list, into second place for a hurdle-race over 2J miles of gronnd, the va'ue of the stakes to tho winner being some £1,600. During the laat fifteen yenrs hurdle racing seems to have taken n great hold on the sport-loving community and oivners in general. Not so much, it nmy be said, that the prises given for such races rival in vulue those ordinarily to be gained for flat races, but thorc can be no question that hurdle-racing tends in no small measure to improve the quality of thoroughbred horses. Until quite reoently, say even so lately as five or six years ago, it ires generally believed that to train a horse for hurdie-raciug was to rnin.orat any rate depreciate, his speed on the flat. This theory within the period iU laded to has had a...
