1919 ENGLISH TURF WOMEN WIN WELL No English member of tlie fair sex has ever kept anything like so large a racing stable as did Caroline Duchess of Montrose, who raced under the assumed name of "Mr. Manton." and was probably the first lady owner of thoroughbreds. Later "Mr. Jersey" hid the identity of that beautiful woman. Mrs. Langtry. who won. among many other races, the Ascot Gold Cup of 1900 with Merman. Since these days habits have strangely changed, and ladies no longer bother much about racing under an assumed name. Their records this year are remarkable, for Lady Queensberry lias secured the Lincolnshire and City and Suburban Handicap with Royal Bucks; Mrs. Peel tool: the Grand National and the second most important jumping event, the Lancashire Steeplechase at Manchester, with that good horse Poethlyn; Lady James Douglas annexed the Oaks with Bayuda, and Mrs. Algernon Cox secured the Ixmdon Cup at Alexandra Park with Graiidcourt.. Among other successful lady, owners are Lady Torringtoh. Lady Nelson. Mrs. Arthur James. Mrs. Varipati and several more. Horse and Hound.
