THE PANTHER AND GALTEE MORE There may be an explanation of the ifecadenee of the great. English three-year-old The Panther. It appears that for a lon time past he has never stridden out freely, and after a recent gallop it was found that a spavin had developed. The colt has been blamed, for shiftiness or roguery when it would not seem that this ailment has been affecting him. The Panther did not run in the St. Leger at any rate. Mr. Allison in the Sportsman writes that "the son of Tracery has been suffering from some transitory trouble in one of his hocks, and he could not possibly be ready for the Doncaster week. All the same, I fancy his is far from a hopeless case, thougli it needs time before any decision can bf- arrived at. Then- is no truth in the rumor which has been widely circulated that The Panther has developed savage tendencies. He is all right if his hock can be made good, and he will run again if he gels really well. But the course pursued with him will be on all fours with that given me by Gen. Ara-groff. -when he and his Bussinn associates agreed t buy Galtee More;, and left the running of him for the Ascot Cup to my discretion. Bemeniber, said the general, no win, no run, and it is needbss to add that in the face of such instructions Galtee More did win."
