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:  -
