TETRATEMA NEVER HEADED IN A RACE Lifer in the day I ran. across Carslake, and a casual question as to what he thought of Tetratema led him to state that, some of our pressmen had been mistaken in the reading of races in which the gray has. taken part. . The -Australian was emphatic that Tetratema had never been headed in any of his races. I am not at all surprised at that, and personally I was of the opinion that the champion had led all the way in. the Middle Park, Plate.. It is still a difficult matter to say what is in front in such a broad stretch as that at headquarters. We find different opinions expressed as to the result even when the horses pass the post. Consequently it is much more difficult to pick out the leader when the horses are five or six furlongs away. For such a well-grown liorse Tetratema is -wonderfully quick into Ms stride, and Cars-lake has no doubt, that the gray has no superior among the two-year-olds in this respect. The jockey puts the crack down as n. great liorse, and I do not think anyone who saw him perform will disagree with that opinion. "Kettledrum" in Manchester .Spurting Chronicle. .
