MELBOURNE SPORTING. MONDAY EVENING. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 17 February 1887
MELBOURNE SPORTING. (FROM OUtt OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Mondat Evening. Jiuo intense heat the past week, and on Saturday in particular, had eomo influence in reducing the amount of general interest taken in racing matters, and at Caulfield on Saturday the attendance was greatly militated against by oho unpleasant warmth of the surroundings. There was, however, a very fair gathering under tho circum stances, but it was not old Sol alone that made it hot for fchnao r»r/»flnnf. fn vr»m»_ ites did not come in as backers could have desired, and as somo very warm things went to the post carrying a lot of money, the sultriness is apparent. The first event on the V.A.T.C. pro gramme was the Selling Bace; of 1G0 aovs., the winner to bo sold for J&0. A flutter of four furlongs brought out twelve runners — 'Warfield, Ariel, Seaweed, Ambassadress, Miss Parnell, Meers chaum, Breeze, T.I?,, The Ghost, Baron, and Firebrace. Ariel wan carrying the top weight of Gst. 91b., and was justly made fav...

The stroke of the winning crew in the Champion Whaleboat Kace that I gave particulars of last week has determined to try his luck in New'South 'Wales. His name is Ernie Bailey, age just over 20, weight list. Gib., and lie is a very promis ing oarsman, and previous to his debut m whaleboats, he had made a mark as the best all-round sculler in outriggers, and also in skiffs and long punts. He will be an acquisition to football in Sydney, as he is a reliable full back. He played for the winners of the junior Cup here last year, and has very often shone prominently among the seniors - Murphy has another rival in the field now down at Wanganui (Wellington,) where a T. Teague has been writing to the papers, and he claims to be ' the undis puted. lightweight champion pugilist of New Zealand.' If the Kowing Association of New Sou...

CRICKET NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 17 February 1887
[?] ? '(Bv ' Not Out.') On Friday next the representatives of N.S.W. will be again called out to show cause for tlie third time this season against the English team of professionals. It will be well remembered that in our first attempt New South Wales came oil victorious, and still holds the honour of being the instigators of the only defeat that the Englishmen have experienced during the whole of their trip. How the Englishmen turned the tables and literally blotted us out of existence in the return match will of course lie fresh to the winds of all; Could we rely upon our batsmen to put a decent score together on a pinch, wo should just about win the coming I match. Not that the eleven players, either individually or collectively, nre in any way inipn'Sr t-5 then' oppoilfinis, but ill tlie hope that Turner and Ferris still retain their cunning with the ball, I persuade myself to believe that it is quite probable that Now South Wales will win with the following telirn Messrs.

MORNING GALLOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 17 February 1887
MORNING GALLOPS. There is vory little of importance to record this week, aa most of our horaes which are engaged in Victoria have already taken their departure, whore their final preparations will be given them, consequently little has been done. Yes terday morning found very few at work of any note, as most of the trainers had to leave by the morning train for Bathurst. Lancer, as usual, was out, bowling along in a determined manner. Though he finiphes woll, I am of opinion that he has hnd too much work. Home Rule went along quietly, and does not appear to be too well. Recruit, with a companion, did his usual spurt, but so used to this customer are the onlookers that very little attention is paid him. Wanda, about whom a report had been circulated to tho effect that she had cut hersalf, was down; without any apparent injury, and cantered along merrily, finishing up with a brisk run homo.
