(From our own Correspondent)
Judge: Mr. HEDLEY Slipper: T. WILKINSON
The meet for the final day’s work of this meeting took place yesterday at
Gretna Station, when a start was made on the farm of Guard Mill, in a large
field where in former years the first day’s work was commenced.
Here eight capital trials were obtained, and a move along the road brought
us to Mossband Hall farm, where we finished at 11.30. The mornings proceedings
were especially noticeable for the way in which all the favorites went down,
no less than five going down right off the reel.
Mr. HEDLEY judged the meeting faultlessly, and WILKINSON gave every
satisfaction as slipper, while we must not omit to give word of praise to Mr. LITTLE,
the flag steward, who was very quick and accurate. Results: -
