- IN Consequence of the many fatal Accidents, which have happened by Horses running too near the Posts, the Stewards of Newmarket Races have caused the large and fixed Posts, on the Heath, to be surrounded with Turf-Banks, about five Feet in the Base, and sloping to the Post, at the Height of about four Feet; and in other Parts of the Course, particularly where there are Turns, they have adopted the Use of slender Posts, that will break on any strong Pressure, which they

earnestly recommend to the Notice of

Stewards, and Managers of Races in ge

neral.
