Vanderbilt. at St. Louis de Pois-sy, heads the list in France, but it would none the less be to know what racing costs the American millionaire on an average yearly. Those who have been privileged to see the Poissy establishment, agree that it is unique and the finest of its kind anywhere. Mr. Vanderbilts trainer. Duke, and jockey Frank ONeill are now in America. They left . November ii, on .La France. The Vanderbilt stable won 39 races and ?S5,713 this season. The Grand Prix de Paris winner. Galloper Light, easily heads the list of winning horses in France with 0,310, the result of his Longebnmps victory. Tills victory and amount places A. de Rothschild first in the list of winning owners.. Baron Edouard de Rothschold is second with 35 successes and a total sum of 3,040, and Capt. J. I Colin is fourth, having .won 30 races and stakes valued at 3,071. Mr. A. Eknayan is third on the list. He has won 42 races, and his prize money amounts to ,10t.

ONeills 0-1 winners gives him the leading position iu the list of winning jockeys. Although many Greeks have, suffered greatly, of late, there seem to be some who have made money.

Among others expected and recently bought at Newmarket, England, are: Trogon, Rivershore, Sundari and Atherton; quite a useful lot. The Belgian "Sport-Elevage" definitely states that Frank Wootton is to ride over obstacles in France this season, and that he has signed an agreement with the Ambatielo stable, controlled by Claude Halsey, at Chantilly.
