This year he has shown excellent form and won the Grand Prix de Printemps at St Cloud in June. Seven started in the race. Bellhouse rode the winner, Kircubbin. Ksar and N. E. Ambatielos Zagrous came to the finish closely bunched. The winners margin over Ksar was a head and the latter held Zagrous safe for second place by a neck. Kircubbins victory marked the second successive time that the big French turf prize has been won by a foreign horse. Last years running was won by Lord Zetlands Pomme de Terre. There were a number of Americans in the big crowd, including Joseph E. Widener, F. R. Hitchcock and Mrs. II. B. Duryea. Mr. Hitchcock was pleased with the news from Amiens that his Ciccrons-, by Sandy Hook, had won the Prix Latoire, and Mrs. Duryea and Mr. Widener were also given reason for jubilation by the news that two of Sweeper II.s produce won races at Amiens. One of these was a mile and a quarter dash. j
