FRANCIS LAMBTONS FEATS AS TRAINER. At a meeting of the Durham County Territorial Association it was announced that the Hon. Francis Lambtou, youngest brother of the Earl of Durham, was killed in action last Saturday-; In a letter to 1 Colonel Bowes, the secretary. Lord Durham stated 1 that ills brother, at the outbreak of the war, had volunteered, and had been appointed sub lieutenant In the Royal Horse Guards. The Hon. Franc! Lnmbton was 43 years of age. and was the ninth son of the second Earl of Durham. It was only u short time ago that his nephew. Lieut. Geoffrey Lambton. of the Coldstream Guards, was killed in action. Tims the Lambtou family have suffered the- loss of two of its members in the war. Mr. Francis Lambton was well-known in connection with the turf, in which he had long taken an active interest. In 1903 Mr. Lambtou succeeded , F. W. Day as trainer to Sir Ernest Cassel at Moul- A ton Paddocks, Newmarket, having the assistance of 1 W. Leader, aud his efforts met with inunediate sue- l cess, for at the end of that season nearly 14,000 I sovereigns stood to the credit of the stable. To wards this amount Love Charms l.Ingfiehl Pari: Plate and Hurst Park Lennox Plate victories contributed not a little, while Sermon, Iovat, Ilandl-capper. Speculator, and others secured stakes. Kx-chetpier Newmarket Handicap, Love Potion Ling-lield Imperial Plate, and Prudent King Riickeu-ham Stakes were the stables best representatives in the following season, while Cape Verde. A Love Charm, and Nabot did well in 1905, the events won Including the Payne Stakes. Newmar ket; Prince Edward Handicap. Manchester; aiiil Trial Stakes, Ascot. The next was a quiet year loi comparison, although nineteen races were won, anil during the following three seasons only an inilni portant part was played. W. Halsey, who had been Sir 17. Cassels jockey, then took over that gentlemans racing stud t.i train, but Mr. Lambton quickly received patronage from other owners, and had the pleasure of saddling Rockfast to win a valuable Biennial at Ascot for Mr. II. Salvin. Lord Sefton. Mr. G. D. Smith. Lord , Downo, Lord Suffolk, Lord Coventry. Mr. Fairle. Mr. L. Brassey. Count Scheibler and others sent horses to Park Lodge to be prepared by Mr. Lamb- i ton. Last year Bonfire was saddled by Mr. Lamp- J ton to win the Nottingham Spring Handicap. Derby, 1 shire Plate and Lancashire Handicap at Liverpool, while Spenser secured four races. JTVis year the smart Bambusa, which captured tboKdii-down Park Stud Produce Stakes and other Ies. was prepared from Park Lodge, while Bonfire repeated his Nottingham success and Spenser, Mer-veilleuse. Carte Poreee. Aiglon and Paean were good winners. Had the year been a normal one. doubtless Mr. Lambton would have claimed a fuM share of the turf Sdls. Altogether he sent out one hundred winners of 1C2 races. London Sportsman j of November 0.
