ENGLISH TURF NOTES The statement that .Mr. J. Marsh is relinquishing his starting engagements at the end of this year is incorrect. Lord Dalmeny, the Righ Hon. T. K. Laid- law, Sir John Rutherford, Bart., and Mr. W. Sofer Whitburn recently Avere elected members of the Jockey Club. J. Lcdson, father of the recently deceased jockey, Avho met Avith fatal injuries as the result of a motor accident, died at Walton, Liverpool, on Monday. The new contriance for smarting gate purposes Avas not altogether successful at Wye. The horses furthest aAvay from the starter had the Avorst of the argument. The light-weight jockey, C. Ringstead, hav- ing obtained a lucrative engagement to ride in India during the Avinter, has left for Bombay. The Night Patrol is proAing remarkably successful on Austrian courses. Winning the Linlithgow Stakes at Flemington, he scored his third consecutiAe Aictory "down under." The Avell-known Leeds jockey, G. Hulme, Avho Aas attached to It. C. DaAAsons stable at Whatcombe, has been appointed first jockey to Peacocks stable at Middleham for next season. The engagement is announced of Malcolm Hancock, judge at the Lincoln meeting and deputy judge to the Jockey Club, to Miss Gladys Irene Dyke, elder daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. G. Dyke, of Norwood, Lincoln. The funeral at Glasnevin cemetery, Dublin, of Mr. P. Field, Avho Avas seAenty years of age, Avas largely attended. He conducted the Shanganah Park stud, county Dublin, Avhere he bred some Avinners. He owned the stallion Soulouque, Avho sired Groomsport. Mr. Field was father-in-laAV of the famous Corinthian horseman, Mr. Harry Beasley, and grandfather of the professional jockeys H. H. Beasley, W. W. Beasley and P. Beasley. Menlough Castle found the going in the Selling Nursery at Lincoln more to her liking than the mud at Alexandra Park, and she was a cleAer Avinner, though the fancied JuA-enile filly Avould undoubtedly haA-e beaten her but for getting out of hand, and Sirett, though straightening her, found himself beaten a neck. The tAAo-year-olds are now at an adan-tage Avith the older horses on the Aveight-for-age" scale, and Mantus, colt, made a sorry example of his field in the Hainton Plate at Lincoln recently. He evidently likes the soft going, for he had scored in the mud at Bath A-hen Douglas Pennant secured him. He gaAe ,550 to retain the Avinner, which is no doubt Avell Avorth the money. ! . :
