BELDAMES SISTER SHOWS QUALITY Dame Beautys Good Race at Hurst Park Gossip and Figures of tho English Turf London Eng August 2 August Belmonts chestnut filly Dame Beauty by Octagon Bella Donna sister to the famous American mare Bel ¬ dame improves upon racing acquaintance Last Saturday at Hurst Park In the Duchess of Yorks Plate of 5000 she made her third appearance of the season and as the extreme outsider in the bet ¬ ting at 124 to 1 in a field of five ran second to Sir Archibald beaten easily by three lengths the mile and a quarter in 207A Behind Dame Beauty were Olympus Ednam and the Sandfiake colt Dame Beautys race before this was in the Dull ingham Plate at Newmarket July 2 when she was sixth in a sevenhorse field behind Radium Moreua Bushranger and Laomedia the mile and a half in 23G The fillys only other appearance was a bad one in the Coronation Stakes for threeyearold fillies at Ascot Park June 17 which Lcsbia won and Dame Beauty was seventh among eight The Belmont mare is most decidedly Improving and is a fine individual of size and substance She did not race as a twoyearold and came to Newmarket in the same consignment as Norman III Vigilant IIIVigilant writes in the Sportsman It is good news to hear that Norman III is going on well again after his misfortune In the Derby and in the presence of Mr Belmont and Mr Leopold de Roth ¬ schild he had a nice gallop and moved in his old free style with Historic over a mile and a half on Saturday I hear that there are some promising youngsters among Mr Belmonts yearlings and trust they will realize expectations Meanwhile it may be noted that live have been nominated for the Derby and two for the Oaks of 1910 1910The The continental correspondent of the Sporting Life writes from Osteiid as follows followsFrom From time to time in Belgium a movement is set on foot to suppress the lK okmakers and to com ¬ pel all race course speculation to be conducted through the medium of the parimutuel but so far the example set by France lias not been followed and i erhaps it was well for Ostend that the book ¬ makers are still allowed to do business in Belgium When after the gaming rooms were closed M Mar quet withdrew his usual contribution to the funds of the race society it was not at first seen where the prize money was to come from With a short ¬ age of 30000 in the receipts and the program al leady announced with a couple of 10000 races and many other large prizes something had to be done at once Taking a wrinkle from the administration of the new hippodrome at Htockel the race commit ¬ tee determined to put up to auction the bookmakers pitches or piquets as they are called on the con ¬ tinent The usual plan has been for each book ¬ maker in the pesage enclosure or ring to pay 20 a day for the right to bet and those outside on the pelouse pay a smaller sum The order in which they stand themselvesAt Is settled among themselves At Ostend the first pitch is the most valuable of all being the easiest for communication witli clients and the prominent position attracts the attention of strangers The piquets were accordingly put up to auction and M Gofiin acquired the right to bet at the lirst pitch by paying 3400 the sale of all the places realized 70000 and that sum of ready money at once went into the exchequer of the race society This was more than double what the pitches realized as a rule throughout all the sea ¬ son so that M Marqucts missing contribution was more than made up for forMeanwhile Meanwhile racing continues very prosperously and provides the chief attraction of the place Twelve days racing have already been given and the program extends till the end of August iS iSiw iw iwteel1 teel1 Ilorses makc D the list of winners of 13000 to August 1 The

Prix Monarque 8000 at one mile and a quarter was won by T P Thomes Magellan with Milton Henry up beating C Blancs Grill Room W K Vanderbllts Gambaiseuil and five others The winner Is a bay eolt 3 by Pert which won the English Derby of 1819 War Dance Primrose dam out of Pietra Mala by Atlantic out of Little Sister by Hermit HermitYou You will remember Magellan that ran twice at Ascot and afterward beat Pillo at Ostend Tom Thome is an American patron of the French turf and the colt is trained by Nash Turner He is de ¬ veloping into a very Hue horse and from the way he held Grill Room at bay in the Prix Monarque at MalsonsLaUitte on Sunday he cannot now be far removed from the front rank In France It was a very fine race Magellan winning a neck from Grill Room which was a neck in front of Gam ¬ baiseuil witli Lieutel only beaten out of place by a neck Sauge Pourpree and Princess Margaret were also close up upJuly July 30 in the sixfurlong Prince of Wales Stakes worth 9000 at Goodwood King Edwards fine lilly Princess de Galles the G to G favorite lost a race she should Jiave won easilr Herbert Jones her jockey watching Blankney II when he hail gotten him safely beaten instead of looking to see if then was any danger from the other side was fairly caught napping by Danny Maiier on Lord Rosebcrvs Attic Salt who by a real tluke beat the kings superior filly by a short head Commenting on Jones error Audax writes in IIorse and Hounds George Fordiiam one of the finest jockeys to ever live once told me that when in front lie always looked straight at the winning post and consequently was ready If challenged on either side to observe the danger which might arise whilst at the same time keeping 1is mount perfectly balanced But many of the presentday riders are invariably turning round and by doing so frequently make the animal they are bestriding change its legs and thereby get beaten This is good religion for a jockey jockeyFigures Figures on the yearling1 sale averages for 1908 so far shoy Gallinule with the best average of 7750 for two Only one Rock Sand and Persimmon readied market Each brought 6500 the sec ¬ ond average Four St Frusquins were sold

Omnium de Deux Aits worth 9200 at five and onehalf furlongs with Fils du Vent a bay colt two years olds own brother to Jardy by Flying Fox out of Airs and Graces by Ayrshire Milton Henry rode the winner Baron Edmund de Rothschilds Persil was second and W K Vanderbilts Oversight was third thirdIn In my opinion It will be some time before we shall see a better twoyearold than Fils du Vent which thus followed up his victory In the Grand Crlterlum at Ostend Fils du Vent holds a number of English engagements among them being the Middle Park Plate this autumn and the 190 Epsom Derby DerbyConfirmation Confirmation is given of the announcement that Mr Bishop who bought Adam from the Jardy Stud will owing to the racing crisis in the United States send over a considerable number of marcs and foals for sale In Paris at the end of September or tlie be ¬ ginning of October OctoberThe The owners to win over 20000 to August 1 are thirteen in number and are as follows Owner OwnerJ

and won the six furlongs Richmond Stakes in a canter by three lengths He was 3 to 1 on in the betting and the best behind him was Sir Daniel Coopers Vivid the sister to Flair Bay ¬ ardo was away slowly but won as he chose and is a magnificent colt with character in action and racing such as firstclass horses show Master Malier is rather lucky over the Richmond Stakes lie has ridden its winner three times In the last eight years yearsIt It turns out that Richard Croker got 25000 for the three youngsters he sold a few days ago to F R Benson They were cheap if the estimate placed on Alabama alone Is a true one She is bv AmerlcUs Rhoda B and for the price went her half brother The Battler by Lesterlin or Clonmell Mr Benson las nominated The Battler for the Epsom Derby of 1910 Alabama is
