Tysons gelding, Tirrupman, made a remarkable performance. He was "well up for the best part of the journey, and running away from the early leader, Yanitor, in the straight, Tirrupman ran in a comfortable winner by four lengths in the remarkably fast time of six minutes and twelve and one-quarter seconds, or six and three-quarters seconds faster than the previous best for three miles and an eighth over twenty-three fences at Flemington. Murrangong, which held the previous record of 0:19, made his performance in this race two years ago. It is contended by some people that there is no such thing is luck. Perhaps; but it might be safe to bet that Sir Sumuel Hordern, the great merchant and turfman of this city, does not entirely uphold that view. Artilleryman, of which he is half-owner, won the Melbourne Cup, and Sir Samuel also drew Richmond Main ,500 for second in one of Tattersalls sweeps on the race. The Australian three-year-old champion and Mel-Itonino Cup winner has won 1,522 so far and has proved his mettle in hard fought races this vear. The colt has only once been out of a pliice, his record for nine starts being four firsts and a dead heat .for first, one second, two thirds anil once unplaced. Artillerymans first race last year as a two-year-old was the Maribyrnong Trial Stakes, in which he ran nowhere, and his place record for eighteen starts is as follows: First Mellxiurne Cup S35 SfiO Dead heat, first. Derby 13,432 First Cuulfield Guineas . 7,875 First Fisher Plate 3,780 Second Victoria Derby 3, 010 First Mona Nursery . . 2,500 First Memsie Stakes 2,500 Second Sires Produce Stakes 1,000 Third Maribyrnong Plate 750 Second Federal Stakes 375 Third Guineas 250 Third Seaside Handicap 100 Total . 1,522 Sir Samuel Hordern and A. D. Murphy gave ,1100 for Artilleryman at auction, and in his recent engagements Melltourne he ran in Murphys eolijrs gray, reil sash. When he raced in Sydney it was in Sir Samuel Hordens colors white, red tsash, blue cap. ENORMOUS ANTIPODEAN BETTING TOTALS. It is estimated, on the basis of the attendances and gross investments at New Zealand and South Australian meetings, that approximately 0,000,000 would have gone through the totalisator had it lieen in existence during the Victoria Kaciug Clubs spring carnival. The governments share, on a five per cent basis, would have been 00,000. The gross investments on the totalisator in New Zealand in the financial year 1010-17 amounted to 5,452,-400. Allowing for the additional population and more generous racing in Victoria it is estimated that at least 0,000,000 per annum would go through the totalisator in this state, of which the governments share would be ,000,000. Thus, cilice the war the government has sacrificed in the absence of the totalisator approximately 0,000,000 in revenue. The loss to the racing clubs has always been large. This year the New South Wales government will receive a large totalisator revenue, and that may possibly influence the Victoria government in its attitude toward the machine. At Flemington and Caulfleld, the Melbourne courses, it would be somewhat difficult to make room for the necessary totalisator buildings. When It. Lewis won on Artilleryman it was his twenty-third mount in a Melbourne Clip, his first lieing on Onward in 1805. A good rider anywhere, Lewis is nevertheless better in a big field at Flemington than at RnndwicU. In addition to Artilleryman, Lewis won tile Melbourne Cup on The Victory and Patrobas, and was second on Malster, Alawa and Shepherd Kins. His other seventeen mounts did not include a place getter, Cadonia, fourth, doing best. KANGAROO.
