E C f 1 J 1 i 1 1 1 1 J ENGLANDS FULL TURF STATISTICS. - Complete Returns of the Year to Owners, Horses, Jockeys and Trainers. The English flat racing season came to an end Saturday, November 2.1, and as a result, the leading sporting publications make extensive displays of the statistics of 1907. On the whole it lias been a year of prosperity for the turf in England and the sport was never more firmly intrenched in the esteem of the people. With King Edward an ardent turfman, it could not well be otherwise. No more thoroughly beloved sovereign ever occupied the throne and his example is infectious. His Majesty is always put at the head in the winning owners list, but his success was not great tills year, his horses having won but 4,720. It is the general opinion that his colt, Derrier, which, in his only start this year, ran second to Rhodora in the Dewhurst Dlate, is a real crack and it may be that through sucessful racing as a three-year-old this horse may give the King greater, prominence in the winning list next year. The leader on the English turf this year is Mr. W. Hall Walker, with aggregate winnings of ,-552.50, comparing illy with J. R. Keenes colossal stable winnings, or even with II. P. Whitneys. Of Mr. Walker, as the leading owner, London Sporting Life says: "Another most successful season lias been experienced by Mr. W. Hall Walker, for, though his aggregate winnings, ,552.50 falls short of the huge total of 18,185 with which he headed the owners in 100.",, it is well in advance of the 3,S25 of 1900, as he again figures at the top. His chief successes during the season were in the One Thousand Guineas with Witch Elm; the Jubilee Stakes with Polar Star; the National Breeders Produce Stakes at Sandown Park, and the Wood-cote Stakes at Epsom, with "White Eagle, and the Gimcrack Stakes at York with Royal Realm. Pom started the season with a couple of wins, value ,125 and ,725 respectively, whilst Witch Elms success in the One Thousand Guineas was worth 2,250. White Eagle, which enriched his owner by ,050 and 1,7S5 by his victories in the Wood-cote Stakes and National Dreedcrs Stakes, also earned ,7:15 by winning the Fiftieth Ascot Biennial Stakes, and ,087.50 in the Fulbornc Stakes at the Newmarket First July Meeting. Royal Realms Gimcrack Stakes, ,750, was his only success and Indian Runner credited Mr. Walker with ,275 when he carried off the Mersey Stakes at the Liverpool Summer Meeting. Order of Merit was the only other winner and her two successes brought in ,715." Second to Mr. Walker is the South African magnate, J. D. Joel, his Oaks winner, Glass Doll, with 4,T50, boiitg Ills principal contributor. Lord Derby was third, Bridge of Canny being his chief winning horse and a high-class racer. Mr. Bass conies next, the good horsp Sancy, with 0,020 won, being the main reliance of his costly stable. In some respects Mr. W. B. Durefoy was the most fortunate of all English owners. He raced but few. horses and had but two winners, yet one of these, Lally, won more money than any other other horse of the year, 7,775. Mr. Purefoys other winner was The Nut, a two-year-old full brother to Lally, which is expected to be a more than useful horse next year. The winners of 5,000 or more, the king excepted, are the following: Winning Races Owner. Horses. Won. Amount. II . M. The King 4 5 4,720.00 Mr. W. Hall Walker 7 1., 89,552.50 Mr. J. B.

In this country Colin, Deter Dan, Ballot and Frank Gill all won more money that Lally did in England. The St. Leger winner, Wool Winder, was second to Lally with 2,0S5 and there are not a few Englishmen who declare he was unlucky in the Epsom Derby and really the best horse in the race.

Mr. Crokers J, Derby winner, Orby, is seventh in the list and might have been first had lie remained sound and able to meet his engagements in good form. Of the two-year-old colts, White Eagle, with 37,S57.50 A. was a decided leader, Vamose, with 0,422.50 be- T. ing his closest follower. Contrary to the case in g S. this country, it is practically Impossible for a two- year-old to head the winning list of horses in Eng- q C. land.

Horses trained by him won among other races the Chester Vase for which Sancy dead-heated, Ascot Stakes, Alexandra Plate, Liverpool Summer Cup, Hurst Park Leniiox Plate, Park Hill Stakes, Prince Edward Handicap, Jockey Club Stakes and Derby Gold Cup. Sancy was his best winner, but aside from him he trained such good racers as Torpoint, Dinneford, Eastern, Jubi-1 lee, Lischana, Queens Advocate, Gobi Riach and Stickup. In all he won thirty-two races with eighteen horses. " Second in the list is T. Lewis, successor to J. Fallon at the famous Netheravon establishment. H,e has done remarkably well, winning the Royal Hunt Cup Ascot and Eclipse Stakes with Lally, while other useful performers to pass through his hands were Bracelet, Aubergine and Malheur. He won twenty-four races with thirteen horses. W. T. Robinson ranks next with sixteen races secured by ten horses. Robinson once more had the pleasure of taking a classic race, Witch Elm securing the One Thousand Guineas. Other events appropriated included the "Jubilee" Handicap, Wopdcote Stakes, Epsom, Aseot Biennial, Sandown Breeders Foal Stakes and the Gluieiack Stakes, Polar Star, White Eagle, Royal Realm and Cinderello being his principal winners. S. Darling Is fourth, and It would indeed be singular if Beckhampton did not make a good show. The Two Thousand Guineas Slieve Gallion, Newmarket Stakes Acclaim, and St. J a $ g t g J, A. T. g S. q C. I C J. James Palace Stakes, iAscot Slieve Gallion, "were among his chief items. Other trainers who topped 50,000 were G. Black well, for whom Lesbia showed splendid racing abilities; R.
