A Splendid Exhibition. FINE WEATHER, RECORD ATTENDANCE. j Successful Opening Day. The results of tbe opening day of the Cardiff and South Wales Horse Sbow of 1905 are of tho tnost satisfnetoty nutare, and tbe official* are to I be congratulated npon the splendid weather and record attendance which charnctexised this I function at the Sophia Gardens Field, Cardiff, on Wednesday. The outlook from a climatic point of view on Tuesday was far friru cheering for grey clouds seemed to promise raiu, but on ¡' Wednesday morning the pun roae in a clear sky, and throughout the day tho weather was ail that could be desired. The Officials. The officials were as follow :â Stewards.âGeneral steward of yard, Mr C- H. Witiiams largo ring, Colonel Henry Ijewia Gteenmendow Messrs n, Forrest, Edgar David, G. C. Williams, W. R. Sbirlev, J. H. Howell, W. Cope, CL Lewis, Junr., J. A. Alex- ander small ring, Messrs J. G. Thomas, Evan D. Lewis, Sy. Robinson, W. Cope, G. W. David, H. Alexander, L. W. David. R. W. LeHil!, Sir F.

Corbett was tho horc. treasurer and Mr C. M. Berkeley the secretary. Excellent arrangements had bsen made by the officials, who, mindrnl of tbe big demands which have been made upon the accommodation of the grandstand in t-he past,had once more lengthened it by SO feet, bringing tne totnl seating accommo- dation np to between 9,000 and 10,000. Nor was this all, for they vOty materially added to the comfort and couveniellce of tbo Kpectatora by slight stiuctnral alterations and the provision of more comfortable seata, :dl of which impiove- ments were greatly appreciated. As is usually the case the morning was devoled to tbe judg- ing of hunters, hackneys, harness and heavy horses and tbe afternoon to those of a more strictly popular character, such as the jumping, double harness, tandem, and trotting classes. AnadditioDal" turn was this year introduced in the shape of a polo pony br ding race, and it may bo at onco 8!1id that this proved of tho most popular character. So lar as the standard of entries-wbich were 570-wereconcemed, it need only be said that they were quite np to the repu- tation of the pa«t--a reputation which places Cardiff among the first proviticinl shows ir. the British Isles. The hunter and backnev classes were both exoallent, while the other clatsaes wore all good, especially the jumping. In the yearling hunters Mr J. L. Nickissori, Swindon, was placed first, while in the two year olds Mr W. J. Tatem took premier honours. In tbe four year ojd, in both light weight and middle weight classes,that well-known exhibitor, Mr J. Diage, of Norhamp- lon, was first, and in the latter classes it is in- teresting to note thm a prize was taken by the Hon. Ivor Guest, M.P., Liboral candidate for Cardiff. Mr J. H. StolteB, of Market Hmborongb, alno took prominent place in the prize list in the hnnter classes. In the. hackney classes South Wcilos exhibitors showed aD well, notable among them being Mr James nowell, of Cardiff and St. Fagan'e. Intbeaingtetbarnets class exceeding 13.2 not above 14.2. Mr C. Kadcliffe, of Cardiff, repeated his success at Bath, his horse being driven by Butcher, of Bristol. The various events pafcsed off without aocident, save for an unfortunate occurrence in tbesinglo harness class (20). Mr W. McBride's New Beau was being driven round the ring, when by some means the beautiful animal became rsativo and broke oft tho shafts of the light trap in which he waa being driven, bnt no one was injured. Phehotses, taking their all round, made the finest show ever seen at this fixture. The yoang hunter stock was particularly good. The haok- neys, too, were very fine. It is worthy of note that hackneys keep ou improving at this show this is a notable and a striking feature. Mr J. llovvell, who takes so much interest in hackneys, look a ptizo in the open class. Generally ho bas comoia with the lecals, but this yaar he was second in the open class for brood mares with one of his hackuays The hackneys aa a. whole were a Vllst improvement on anything seen here before. The attendance totalled about 9,000. The number actually paying at the gates exceeded 5,300, which provides a record for tbe Cardiff Horse Show.
