NO EPSOM DERBY IN 1869? "Vigilant," of the Sportsman, states "on excellent authority" that there is just a chance that there will be no Epsom Derby for the next two years. He says —" It appears that all that part of the Derby course which extends from Tattenham-corner to the furzes, near the starting-post for the City and Suburban, is included in the Six Mile Hill purchased from Mr. Carew by Mr. Studd. This portion was let by Mr. Carew to the proprietors of the Grand Stand on a yearly tenancy of 4300 a year. Mr. Studd, who came into possession of the property last November, would not renew these terms, but offered to give a 20 years' lease of the property at XI,000 per annum. This proposal the Grand Stand Committee stigmatised as extortion, and they at once proceeded to lay oat a new course. It has now been found that this new course cannot be made available unless the Grand Stand is 'removed, and even then there would necessarily be such a dangerous curve beyond Tattenham-corner as no prudent jockey would risk his neck over. The committee of management are thus left in a rare quandary, for although they have not come to any terms with Mr. Studd, they have advertised that the races will be run over his pro- perty as heretofore and this has so incensed him, that he now declares that they shall not hold any races on his grounds, no matter what terms they may offer, and therefore for the present proceedings are at a dead-lock. Should Mr. Studd remain obdurate, all the entries will have to be cancelled, and the nominations would be void if the race were to be run on any other than the ad- vertised course, the conditions expressly saying. the last mile_and a-half, to be run on the new course."
