ENGLISH TURF NOTES Brownside has joined Cottrills string at Lambourn. Campbell Kid 5 years has been turned out of training. St. Glinting has gone into "Woodmans stable at. Chaiderton. Sir. Leopold Albert Harward, well known in racing circles, was one of those nominated for admission to the Commission of Lieutenancy by alderman Sir Louis Newton before he retired from the oflice of Lord 31 ay or. A desperate finish was that of the Ather-stone Handicap at Leicester, for which the judges were unable to separate the consistent Harrovian and Quandary. The latter had been splendidly handled by the apprentice Bonham, carrying one pound overweight, and this may have prevented her scoring outright, though Bonhams riding was good value for the extra carried. Ttacing men will regret to hear that air. TV. F. Barratt, for twenty-five years railway station master at Newmarket, has resigned, and his resignation has been accepted. Be-cently he underwent a painful operation. A few years ago the King ; e him a jeweled scarf pin in the Royal cou.se for assistance rendered to the Itoyal servants who travel to Newmarket by train. There was quite an Irish air about the victory of Polish Patriot in the Allestree "Welter Handicap at Derby, for the horse had won the Irish Cesarewitch. He was ridden by the crack Irish lightweight, "W. Dines, and trained by the Irish trainer, Killalee. who is located at Epsom. He was a particular smart winner from Eastbridge and Purple Image after the latter had taken up : a most prominent position in the straight. Considering that the Silver How filly had never before seen a race course, she accomplished a remarkable performance in the Apethorpe Nursery at Leicester. Bidden by a steeplechase jockey, Carroll, she carried top weight and was only beaten by a head by the little fancied Goura colt. It is difficult to understand why the Silver How filly had not been exploited in a maiden event rather than take her chance under top weight in a nursery. "Life in Newmarket," written by "Master Herbert," the author of the "Life of Hacken-schmidt," "Walks and "Walkers," "Bulldogs in Khaki," and "Life of Johnnie Briggs," has just been published. The publication deals with the Bohemian life of racing during the season at the worlds greatest training quarter and there is a laugh in almost every line of the little volume. The work is dedicated to Lord George Dundas. The publication can be secured from Herbert Turner, sporting -journalist, Old Trafford.
