CRACK ENGLISH THREE-YEAR-OLDS. The Tetrarch continues to be the most discussed horse of the hour, and there is little abatement in the rumors, which vary between "quite alright and "something radically wrong." A considerable amount of money was iuvested in his support on Saturday last at -1 to 1, but the tide of opposition was in full How agaiu on Monday, when an offer of five monkeys and proportionate odds for a place passed unheeded. He has been an easy horse to back ever since. In some quarters it is said that Captain McCalmont intends to ride the horse at Epsom, but I doubt it. The spotted grey has been doing healthy work lately, with occasional steady gallops over short distances, and the latest reports fs that he will run for the Grcenham Stakes at Newhurv on April 1. Other notabilities engaged in this i-acc are Brakespear, First Spear, Stornoway, Sergoi, Parhelion, Land of Song and Kennymore plentv of material to ensure an interesting race. The Tetrarch has other liabilities before the Derby, including the Two Thousand and the Chester Vase, ami it will be time enough to judge of his condition and well-being when he has been seen in pub-lice, for not until then can confidence be fully restored. One can only hope that all will go well with him, and that he will be able to do. himself full justice in the Derby. By George continues- to make satisfactory progress, and according to report is being specially prepared for the Two Thousand though he can have a preliminary spin at Kemptoii in Hie Easter Plate, where he can meet Dan Russel, Shake Down and the maiden Vanadium, a promising son of Radium and Pieria.
