TURF NEWS FROM ABROAD f : : $ The English Press Association has been informed by Sir Frederick Ponsonby, treas-turer to King George and keeper of the privy purse, that no appointment has been made to the position of manager of his majestys racing stables and stud, which post was left vacant by the death of Major P. H. Featherstonhaugh last July. Many names have been mentioned. After the smart Irish-bred four-year-old Golden Miller had carried Miss Dorothy Pagets colors to victory in the Moderate Steeplechase at Newbury he was disqualified for carrying wrong weight, and his trainer was fined 50 for negligence. The race was awarded to W. Parsonages Forba on the protest by his trainer T. Rimell. The conditions of the race stipulated that a winner after date of entry, October 27, should carry seven pounds extra, and as Golden Miller had won a hurdle race on November 7 he was thus penalized and should have carried 152 pounds. Actually he carried only 145 pounds. The heavy fine of 50 against trainer Briscoe indicated that the Newbury stewards took a grave view of the offense. Briscoe, apparently, took the word "winner" to mean a winner of a steeplechase.
