At last Dalmatian has done something worthy his American record. At Manchester last Saturday, he won the important Manchester November nandl-" cap at a mile and a half from sixteen competitors. This is the last big race of the English fiat racing season and is of the net value of .fti,G2."i to the winner. Dalmatian ran unplaced last year in this race, when it was won by Ultimus. This year was Ultimus among the unplaced ones to Dalma-, Finns first. Of those starting this year. Cyllene More was top weight at 115 pounds. Dalmatian carried 100. Second to him was P. Hartigan three-vear-old chestnut filly Workgirl, by Santoi Fidra. !4 pounds. II. Crallans four-year-old chest-, nut colt, The Gnller, by Gull Lady Teazle, carried 90 pounds and finished third. The Gnller Is trained bv eis:htv-odd years old John Osborne and unex-,r pectedlv wou the Chester Cup at 3 to 1 last May. He was at the same odds iii Saturdays race, while it was 10 to 1 against Dalmatian and 100 to against Workgirl. Dalmatian was a capital three-year-old when Sam Hildreth raced the son of Ethelbert Ionis this country, good enough to justify the big price, said to have been 0,000, paid for him by Louis Winans. To the latter he lias certainly been exasperating disaopointmeiit. His has not been case of Inability "to run far and fast, but a deep-is seated aversion to trying in a race. Last year, while his private work was all that could be de-d sired, no rider could induce him to do in a Tace what it was natent he could do if in the mood to try. Rut this fall the horse began to show signs of cheer-li- ing up and took to racing more kindly. At Windsor, October O. lie carried IE! pounds and won Windsor Handicap from good horses at a mile and live-eighths and 150 yards and then confirmed change of heart bv finishing a close up fifth to Yama in the fastest Cesarewitch ever run. it also being a new record for two miles and a quarter England. His success at Manchester affords good evidence that his" conversion to the way in which a "ood race horse should run continued effectively to the end of the racing year, a circumstance prob-le aldv intensely pleasing to his owner. j,, first vear in England Dalmatian, while frequently siilkiiig and refusing to try in his races. did not alwavs run unkindly and when in the mood to show what lie could do. won the Park Handlcai of if I- - g le is it it 1- ie n s s t- d d e- le 7 in ts an l!! a r p it v V" ir the ,,. ,,1 his i Fiz 7 J in 3,1 q. y b- 1,. s riti up at Hurst Park and the Newmarket October Hand!- I cap at Newmarket.
