THE SCRATCHING OF HORSES GETS THE BOOM ON. A Newcastle correspondent wrote early in the week asking my opinion, as to whether the continual entering of a horse week after week and which does not run tended to get the boom on. I can only answer that it certain ly doe3. Why owners or trainers do it, it is hard to say. Nevertheless those that are re puted to be clever, are the worst offenders, and yet when they start their horse they have the consolation of seeing it open up favorite at a very short price.

A prominent care has occurred quite recent ly, a certain horse when entered first was not known by the cencral public, but has been scratched so often that the majority of race goers could now tell you his most recent per...
