UNFAIR TO THE STARTER Australian Official Jeered and Threatened When Brothers* Horse Wins. Any starter related to an owner is always j liable to find himself in an unenviable position. In the Limit handicap at the I.aun- leaataa Cap meeting. Laaara, owaai by R. *. ! and T. A. Field, was fractious at the post, 1 and was held by the assistant clerk of the I course. Just as the latter let go Lanoros head the barrier went up. and she jumped clean out, j eventually winning by a length. Norman Field, a brother of the owners, j was the starter, and. as usual everywhere in similar cases, a section of tho [crowd mad.- allegations. There was not the slightest ground for them, and the mar.-s owners were as much upset as the start r I at the occurrence. — -Sydnc-y Referee.
