Outstanding Features and Statistics Statisticsof of the One Greatest Race RaceMeeting Meeting of the World The recent meeting at Royal Ascot the first since 1914 was in all externals all of gorgeous dis ¬ play and pomp that its predecessors were and in one respect more Formerly the royal procession in state was conflned to the opening day at Ascot but to emphasize the occasion this year it was repeated on the first three days of the meeting an item of splendor highly gratifying and conducive to the success of the meeting meetingIn In one respect the Ascot meeting is peculiar and alone among race meetings That feature Is that every race run is a stake race It follows that the highest class horses of England contest its various races and it is a racing axiom that a horse which wins at Ascot can win anywhere Prior to the war the champion racers of continental Europe frequently took part in its racing and some noble contests particularly in the Gold Cup resulted Tills international rivalry was practically absent this year but as soon as the French turfmen get fully on their feet again it will no doubt be renewed renewedAscot Ascot racing of this year suffered from the present scarcity of horses of good class in England and a number of the valuable events were contested by small fields of three four or five horses which normally would have had from six to ten or more starters This lack of good horses fit to race was signally illus ¬ trated when Lord Glanelys He was allowed to walk over for the Churchill Stakes worth 5125 How ¬ ever this situation was known beforehand and compensation was found in some racing up to the highest standard and in such remarkable occurrences as the triumph of Irish Elegance in the Royal Hunt Cup Diadems two splendid victories on the last two days of the meeting the much applauded success of King Georges colt Viceroy in the Waterford Stakes and the performances of what are held to be some exceptionally good twoyearolds For a long time Gainsborough was expected to lend interest to the running of the Gold Cup but was ah absentee and it dwindled to a matter of four starters with By Jingo an easy winner winnerHard Hard times incident to the war had its due effect in the way of reduced values as compared with prewar times the cut averaging about forty per cent all around Even so all concerned were satisfied with what
