Tho groat raeo, up to tho very moment of its doeision, was generally con- sidered to bo a good betting race, thnt is that it was a good ono for " tho layers round" to operate upon. This, doubtless, was so to those who commenced their books late, biit to tho generality of bookmakers wo should pay thnt St. Albans wns, ene of the lew that spoilt their no counts. Thorp aro two or throb bookmakers that have won largely on St. .Albans. Amongst tho most prominent of lltoae, report points to Messrs E. Groen, Pearce, Steele, nnd .Tbbnson.' The princi...
