NOVELTIES FOR AUSTRALASIA RACING Though Australian distance racing on the great courses compares favorably in speed with that of other great racing countries, the average is not good and a means to increase speed in such race is sought by racing folks of the great EugliHh colonies. It has lately been proposed that lialf the stake should be given to the horse leading jxt the end of a mile. And still another idea is that the Victoria Racing Club and Australian Jockey Cliib of Sydney should keep in training a horse, of the right class solely for the purpose of pinking a sound iiace in all long-distance weight-for-age events, the horse and rider to be entirely under the control of the stewards, from whom the rider would icceivc his instructions.
