SPORTING NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 10 March 1887
SPORTING NEWS. I News from Toowoomba is to tho effcct that tho Toowoomba Town Plate will be worth 150 sovs., and tho T. C. Handicap 175 sovs. Tho Wall send Jockey Club has issued an important programme for the 11th and 12th prox. Amongst tho dishes advertised will bo found the Town Plate, 100 sovs. ; J.C. Handicap, 100 sovs. ; Flying Handicap, 40 sovs.; Hurdle Hace, 50 sovs. ; Prince of Wales and Welter Handicaps, -10 sovs. each. En tries for handicaps close on the 29th. Weights are duo on April 4, and non acceptances are due two days' later. There can scarcely be any truth in the report that Major George and the Hon. James White are contemplating a match between Nelson and Trident, for £1000 a-side, over a course of three miles. As the weights at present stand the three year-old would decidedly have by far the best of it over such a journey. Besides, there is nn opportunity for them to meet at weight for age at the forthcoming A. J.C. meeting, and it is more likely that a private w...
TRIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 10 March 1887
TRIDENT. | In this issue we furnish our readers with a life-like portrait of Trident, the worthy representative of the Hon. James White, who pulled off the treble at Flemington during the recent V.R.C. Autumn meeting. Trident is by Robinson Crusoe from Cocoa nut, and was bred and reared by Mr. E. de Mestre, of Terara, Shoalhaven, a gentle man who possesseu one oi tne nnest runs in Australia. The estate is situated on the banks of the Shoalhaven River, and a prettier or more fertile property could not be imagined. It abounds with the best of herbage, and is of a swampy character, While the oak is thickly studded over the property. It was here that the hero of the turf of the present day first saw light, and it was here that the squire of Terara also bred so many horses that have adorned our turf for the last quarter of a century. The per formances of the great son of Robinson Crusoe are as under : — At two years — A, J.C. Autumn Meeting : won Christmas -Jift, one mile and a quarter, ...

MORNING GALLOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 10 March 1887
MORNING GALLOPS. Since our last issue little of any conse quence has been done at Randwick in the way of fast gallops, in fact nothing above the middling horse has been at home ; but by the end of the week those horses who have been upholding the honour and glory of New South Wales in the adjoining colony will havo returned and tend to en liven proceedings. Comus and Victory havo wendod their way up west, but nearly all the others who have been assist ing in the provinces have come home. After the heavy campaign just gone through, both at home and abroad, it is only natural that both man and beast should be treated to a spell, and evidently frem the uninteresting performances in early morning at Randwick trainers are of this opinion. Yesterday Kelso, Keys, Roberts, Fielder, Brennan, Ivory and several others were at work early, but did not extend their strings. By the way, Kelso was sending Wanda the reverse way, which would influence people to believe that he intended visiting the s...

NELSON AND TRIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 10 March 1887
KELSON AND TRIDENT. (Bt ' Early Bird.') It is pleasing to chronicle that Major George has placcd Nelson in the hands of Mr. T. Lamond, to be prepared for the A.J .C. Meeting. Business matters have taken his former trainer to New Zealand, but under the care and atten tion of such an astute and ?worthy master mere need DC mtle tear ot Itim giving a good account of himself. Nelson is entered for the Sydney Cup, but ?whether he will be seut for that race or not is a very moot question at present. No doubt his mission will be the weight for-age races. ? What a meeting this will be between the Great Maori and Trident, and what a sensation it will cause. 1 should not be at all surprised to see him lower the pretty blue and white. Per haps many of my readers will pooh-pooh o. the idea, and imagine I am a bit off ; but ... if a whip is of no service in a finish, then ' why do the riders carry it?. The inference I am drawing is, that if Brown' had not lost the whip a distance from home he wou...

Reader asfcs — 'What is the rule with regard' to sweepB made en a racecourse? Are they paid first pasrt the post, or do they go with the prize? All sweeps go with tho prize, unless otherwise stipulated. Teidekt asks— A B C and D play at euchre. A and G are partners, and B and D. A deals and B takes it up, but his opponents take the first three tricks, which of course enchres him. A then discovers that he hiul six cards. Does he merely lose his deal, or does the euchre count atrainst him ? The euchre does not toll against. He only loses his deal. Sweetmeat asks — After the death of Sir James, Martin, A lays B 3 to 1 that he ennnot name oi*r out of three who will...
