TAKAPUNA JOCKEY CLUB SUMMER MEETING. NOTES ON THE RACING , So far as the Takapuna J.C. Meeting '■'_ lias proceeded; at -time of writing, it_ has been a big success.

Doctor won the Cup on Monday in . handsome style. lie went to the head ; of affairs at an early stage of the race, 1 and although St. Ona made a real good'fight of it in the run home, he lasted it out and.gained a bare length , victory over Mr S.
