The races commenced on Tuesday. The course has been much improved since last year—the principal alteration being in the Derby Course, commencing at the barn, where it takes a much wider sweep than formerly. The dangerous turn at Tottenham Corner is thus entirely done away with. Five hundred guineas have been given for the collection on the ground this year. The attendance on Tuesday was good for a first day. The racing commenced at one o'clock, and continued till half-past Eve ; the weather being very fine all day.
The attendance on Thursday, to see the race for the Derby Stakes, was the most numerous and fashionable that has been known at Epsom for many years.
No race since the famous one between Cadland, the Colonel, and Zinganee, has-excited so much interest.
