WHERE SELLING RACES CAUSE NO TROUBLE. One never hears of trouble or dissatisfaction over the conditions of selling rae-es in England, such as is common at almost every race meeting on this siele a f the Atlantic. The difference seems to be, not in the conditions, but in the attitude of owners, who, in America, want the opportunities without any eonsee|iient responsibilities. In England horses are put into selling races to be sold, which is the last thing in the minds of owners on this side. Zermatt. Mint Master and Paulhan. the first and third favorites, and the actual winner of the Fay-gate Selling Handicap Hurdle at Gatwick, on January 5. were advi rtised for sale on the card, win or lose-. The winner did not elicit u single bid at his conditional selling price of 50 soereigns.
