PEGASUS ÖN THEORISE HANDICAP. To the Editors ofSelCs Life in Sydney. The Handicap published last wçok by tho A.J.C. is generally allowed to bo a vory fair one ; und I nrn far from* disagreeing with this opinion. A few words, how over, on its merits and tho chances of tho different nags, appear to bo needed ; for, in using tho weights for thirty horses, it is a mnttor of impossibility (especially whon there aro three or four heads ongaged in it) not to make some mistake'» s and wo mnst not expect to find tho freo -Handicap an oxcoption to this rulo. Horses run so Btrangcly, and so differently at different times, in this country, and aro moreovor so vory seldom fit at the poat, that it enn hardly bo looked for from handienppeve, who have not very narrowly watched tho povformancos of each individual during tho past Reason, to make tho opening handicap of tho noxt ono approach perfection ¡ and it generally happens that some ," dark" ono comos out to upset ovon tho beat calculations. * A...
