THE YOUNGSTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 February 1930
THE YOUNGSTERS. Newgate left the barrier smartly in the two-year-old race, and led all the way. She won easily at the finish. Love Patch was always chasing the leader, J bung -jii veii to take1 iecond money. She should not be long in catching the judge's eye. Income did not begin too well, 'out finished fast in third place. Black Gang was always well up and finished fourth. Henson showed plenty of pace, but ran greenly. With a little more experience Henson should soon be getting into the money. Gloria Mundi, which was well fancied, missed the jump-out. ind was never prominent. . Eastwyn was well placed throughout, but failed badly at the finish, which was not her true form. Beautiful Bar rie failed to show up, and none of the others did anything worthy ol note.

Mount Cooper ?i;d the early pacing, ? but failed to -iee the journey out. Some Scot was always in a good position, but failed to come 011 at the finish.

SOME COSTLY FAILURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 February 1930
SOME COSTLY FAILUFES. The Aga Khaii has spent a for tune in blood stock m the last ten years. This year he iuiaded the list of winning owners in Great Britain, but it is doubtful whptnpr his rohirns from his turf ventures have been as much as his expendh are. Towards the end of October he sild for about 13 gns. a horse that had cost him about 17,000 gns. three; years ago, and had never started in a race since. This is Feridoon, by Hurry On out of ;Ecurie, by ^Radium. The colt was bred at the National Scud in 1925, .and the following year was sold pri vately to the Aga Khan. The transac tion aroused much comment at the time. Feridoon, a full brother to the well-performed Diligence, was handed to R. C. Dawson to train. He was such a big fellow that ahe trainer decided he should not be caced as a! two-year-old. As a matter of fact,1 he never raced in England and last year was sent to France, .where the Aga Khan races, extensively. Feri doon, however, was absolutely a white elephant, an...

BEST OF THE SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 February 1930
BEST OF THE SEASON. , It was recently mentioned in 'The Sport' that Diolite was regarded by most good judges in England as the best of the past ?' season s twoyear olds, though He won only two races. This view is now confirmed'1 by handi capper, T. F. Dawkins, who has given Sir Wllfyo Hirst's /'nit', fnnnraintlif Q ; ? — — o- ? ? ' 1 m the rTee Handicap, run in April next. Lord Woolavirigton's Press Gang is rated next best, and then , comes j Lord Dewar's Challenger, with the] Aga Khan's Blenheim fourth in the tables. Lord Derby's Fair Esle is con sidered the, best of the fillies. j T-ioIite and 'Press Gang had never met in public. J Diolite's' successes were in thei Spring Stakes at Newmarket, the Co ventry Stakes at Ascot, and the Mole comb Stakes at Goodwood. Ffis con nections decided not to race him after the first week in August. Press Gang won the Rous 'Me- morial Stakes at Goodwood, the Mid dle Park Stakes at Newmarket, and thte Hurst Park Great Two-year-old Stakes. Lord Dewa...

RACES, BUT NO BETTING. HOW TEXAS DOES IT. .Texas is one American State in wliich racing is almost at a dead letter, owing to betting of any kind being barred. Messrs. Waggoner (father and sons) have a fine racecourse there — a -i; ? 4- ? t-» ? ? i_. i ? i ? i_. n.Lnu£iuu uuwns — wnicn cost nearly £600,000 to lay down and equip, and naturally they wish to restore rac ing to its old position in Texas. With this object in view they re cently held a meeiing t.t their course five races carrying £140 each, andi the sixth £180. j There was an attendance of 10,000 j and though there were several book-' makers from the east present,] anxious to do business, it was for-, cibly impressed on them that they, were at a meeting at which betting; Was absolutely prohibited. | Naturally those present did not1 enjoy the racing to its full without, being able to make a bet, especially! as large fields gave plenty of scope' for speculation. j It was anticipated that one effect; oi tne meeting would lead...

THE MAIDENS. Jocose won the i.ia;Jen Handicap.! She was always in ;a handy place 1 until well down the straight, andj she came away and won very easily, j Dunmanway was back fifth in thej middle of the field for most of thei way. He was finishing very strongly 71 second place. . Starena again went out with a big lead and entered the straight with naif a dozen lengths to spare, but railed to see the journey out, and was a poor third. lialisand was always well placed, jut failed in the run home and fin shed fourth. Bowshot was finishing well close up, and so was Jury's Ver dict. The pace was a little too fast t'or Malt Bier, but Diggery showed a lot of pace for six furlongs. Hyla cola fell near the two furlong post; when running fairly well, and Wen-! duyne fell over her. Hylacola was] killed.

THE LEGACY. By A. G. Greenwood. (Continued from last week.) Well, those 'some days' must be devoted to giving Felieity Sorrow- j ing Lessons. At lunch, Peter, hav-! ing thought the matter over most| carefully and being still of opinion' that it would be highly dishonorable j to betray old John Minchin's secret trust but equally low not to do his utmost to make felicity sorry and! win her the £5,000, determined th:it| it was at least permissible to paint old Walter Nash in the most attrac tive colors. Felicity apparently viewed her un cle through spectacles of another co-j lour. 'You,' said she, 'may like Uncle [ Walter. I don:t. There's no earthly: reason why I should. When my father was alive we were frightfully hard-un and Uncle Walter took -*no notice of us whatever.

HOT DAY FOR TATTERSALLS RACES. Poor Attendance and Poor Tote WONDERFUL FINISH IN VICE-REGAL HANDICAP. HEADS SEPARATE SIX HORSES: DOUBLE TO W. J. SPENCER. Tal:tersalls Club experienced a very poor day for their meeting last Saturday. The weather was intensely hot, the attendance ! was poor and consequently Totalisator results were very low. . ? ; One of the most thrilling finishe s ever experienced on a race course wm witnessed in the Vice-Regal Handicap. Six horses . , flashed past the post in line, and there was not more than a head between any of tbem. No on would envy the judge his task in se'ecting the placed hor ses, Jus verdict 'was well re ceived. Une ot the features ot the day wen the defeat of Stargai in the W elte f , which broke his sequence of wins . Mr. W . J. Spencer had a well- deserved winning, turn when his horses Newgate and Margate won a double. Backed down to a short price, Fruition easily accounted for the opposition in the Sprint Event.

FRANK WOOTTON'S RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 February 1930
FRANK WOOTTON'S RECORD. Discussing the riding records of the season in England, 'Sporting! Life' says of Fox, who was second! in the winning list to Gordon Rich ards : — I 'It was a good school in which Fox was brought up. In his young' days he had the opportunity of rid ing much in the company of the pro digy of his time, Frank Wootton, and! the late 'Danny' Maher. These two1 were jockeys before they came to this country. I doubt whether they learned anything from the English style of riding, which at that time was a cross between the old and the new. Maher and Wootton had a style different from 'Tod' Sloan's, and easier to copy, for it was more natural. i Although Fox is a veteran, this was] the first occasion on which he had ridden 100 winners or over. Frank Wootton's great record is one of the greatest in England, and has prob-1 ably not been equalled since Fred Archer's day. I The Australian, Stanley Wootton,! who has won fame in England as a I rider and a trainer, has arrived ...

None will be surprised if Lucky Card develops into 'one of the best stayers of the autumn.

NON-SKID SHOE. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 February 1930
NON-SKID SHOE. ** - - j J J. Barden, jun., has patented an an-, genious device for helping horses to keep their feet when walking on slip pery roads. The device consists of a rubber at tachment which fits into the shoe, and can be quickly strapped on. Be sides preventing slipping, which is ? a uouRCi VIII H3I1 CU auu tUH' crcte roads, it protects the frog of V the foot from being bruised by- any stones, and no harm could come from nails or glass on the roads.
