TURF AFFAIRS THAT INTEREST ENGLISH. Some Particulars of a Remarkable Sale of Yearlings in Australia — Grand Prix de Paris Candidates. London. May 21. — The long cessation of racing in Croat Britain because of the death of King Kdward has given turf people tjine to consider matters in their line elsewhere. Just at present a topic of comment anil wonderment is recently-received particulars of a really remarkable sale of young thoroughbreds at Kandwick. Australia, early last month, when the unusual prices realized gave abundant evidence of the commercial value of racing and breeding throughout Australia. Thirty-live years ago. when tbese sales were inaugurated, twenty-three yearlings only were offered. On the present occasion 383 animals were actuallv sold in the ring for a grand total of 09.1MJS guineas 49j840. n fewer than thirty-three youngsters fetching upwards of 300 guineas, while fourteen of them were purchased lor 1.000 guineas ami over. Naturilly. as the alisolutely best three two-year-olds of the season are all by Maltster, he being first in the sires list on January 31 last, with forty winners of seventy-six Hues, value 07,740. his progenv. in-luding Desert Bose. Beverage the likelv winner of tin- n.t A. .1. C. Derby 1. Lager. Alawa. Maltine, Malt King the eooqaeror of Prime Footc. Mala, etc.. he young Maltsters were in tremendous demand. Paxtiealars of no fewer than thirl v seven yearlings sired by this son of Bill of Portland Bailey arere printed in the catalogue. Anvwav. the .111. Ii nicer announced that Maltster in future would be limited to ten public mares at 100 guineas each, and tlint his subscription list for 1911 was full. The young Maltsters were a prelty useful lot, hut the general opinion appeared lo 1h that they were not ipiite so well grown as last years contingent. Nevertheless, one breeder obtained 3.323 guineas for three Maltster yearlings, while the whole of the thirty-seven were disposed of for a total of 21.300 giiinefls. which gives an average of almost 5B7I guineas. Half a dozen colts and two fillies brought more than four figures, as the following summary shows : Cheslnnt colt, by Maltster— Winkfielils Lass. by Winkti.ld: II.

Of these sixteen are Knglish. and the colt by Hamburg, out of Blue Oirl. Witch Work. New Castle .111. 1 Whisk Brouai are of American breeding.

If Mr. Whitncv be destined lo win. it will have to be with the lasa ■anted, which is undoubtedly his b.-t three year old. .nl victory would come ;ls Imndsiime eompensa: ion for hi- oinis-ion frasa the Derby. Another American is Men Ta.-k. hut I fear his chance of winning for A.

There is no reason to fancy either of James de Rothschilds pair. Bron-atao and Nankeen, nor. for the matter of that, is there much hope of Admiral Hawke staying well enough to follow in the successful footsteps of Spearmint. In the same category mav be included Montreal, a half-brother to Polar star, bv Galliaate. .11: of Co On. but Druids I.odge mav send a worthv rciirest inative in either Mr. Cunlifles Charles OMal by ,,r Mr. igaus I Ister King, which stand their ground, abereaa Captain Foresters IlaciUus is numlM-icd aiuonif ihe utissiiig. The two EnslisU horses remaining are Mr. Fairlcs Leniberg and King Mhhis. of which the son of Persiinmon and Bona Dim may not lie of much account, but the half-brother to Bayardo is of different class altogether, and. granted a run. might easily boat all of the French cracks, and win. We shall, however, see first how the son of Cvllene ami Galicia gets on in the Derby. At Buda Peslh on Sunday. May 15. the valuable Konigs Prize a "dtp a n tl 71 .000 sovereigns was won by Count L. Filekis Rascal, which was the champion two year-old and biggest winner of last soa-on In the dual monarchy. The Konigs Prize was run over nincTtiiiongs and. with Q, .lanek in the saddle. Basra! won by a head after an exciting finish with .-nut Tassilo Festctics Pcponnet. which was in receipt of three penaaa from the winner. Ba-.al. which was bred by Heir Bela von Fay in Hungary, is bv Baebiirn. by St. Simon, out of MoWerina. out of Kikelet. by Pardon, son of Morgan, out of Creep ing Jenny, by Peter. Minoru. winner of the Two Thousand anil of a never-to-be-forgotten Derby, is. as is well known, a leased horse for his raciug career, and that — assuming that it is limited to four years old — having practically terminated, the probability is that he will be returned to his breeder. W. Hall Walker, whose nomination of tin son of Cyllene and Mother Siegel for the Atlantic Stakes at the Liverpool July meeting still stands good, although it is in .he last degree improbable, in existing circum-slances. that he will fulfill it. More likely is it that his racing career has terminated1, and that he will either retire to the Tully Stud or be sold for the benefit of some other and similar establishment. It was said that he could have been bought for 25 000 after he bad won the Derby. Seveia! of our horses have already ncipiired quite respectable winning figures, the Two Thousand Cuinoa- serving to put Neil Cow well in the lead.
