PURSES IN ENGLAND AND AMERICA As an instance of racing values in England and their burden, the Sporting Chronicle displays the figures at Gatwick for September 23, when six races of the value of ,500 were run. In three of these races owners money gave a surplus of ,000 and in the other three the club paid ,0o0 toward the purses, so that the total days cost for the six races and ,500 purses to the executive was 0. Of course, this was a striking example, hut the daily average of costs for racing prizes in England is extremely low and in startling contrast to racing organization offerings to owners in this country.
