PROFITABLE ENGLISH RACING DREAMS 5 Before Lord Randolph Churchill, the eminent politician, . went to the races on one occasion, he 2 dreamt that he saw a certain number hoisted. When lie consulted his race card he found that only one horse had so high a number. Upon making inquiries I lie discovered that this horse had chances better r than the odds indicated. He backed it heavily and 1 won n considerable sum. When Lord Bradfords Sir Hugo Avon the Derby in i 1S92 at 40 to 1 a Liverpool public house manager dreamt that ho saw a newspaper giving the result t of lie Derby in large type. To his utter amazement - the name of Sir Hugo appeared as No. 1. His 3 dream so impressed him that ho did not hesitate ; to back Lord Bradfords horse with his employers s money. It would have been poetic justice if the I dream had been a spoof hut Sir Hugo Avon a sen-tatioual - race and the "borrower:" netted 0,000.
