Maidstone Telegraph, Saturday 12th 7 February 1870.


On Wednesday afternoon last, Coppens of Egerton, champion of Warehorne and Hamstreet, and Luckhurst, of Calehill, the "Little Court Stripling," met on the Charing Road, to decide a half-mile spin for a sovereign aside.

The latter receiving 10 yards at the start.

The stripling once more had to suffer defeat at the hands of the old veteran, who was attended and brought to the ground by his trainer, Mr. F. Turk of the "White Horse," Egerton.

The men on towing the mark was sent pegging away down the road by report of pistol. The stripling increasing his lead at every step, soon placed another 10 yards to his credit, and at the end of the first quarter of a mile, a 5 and 20 yard gap appeared between them, which the "Moke" now began rapidly to diminish, and amidst the greatest excitement, passed his man 100 yards from the tape, and literally walked in, the Stripling being quite exhausted, and very glad to give over.

The betting was at even. Mr. W. Coppings, of the "Queens Arms," Egerton, officiated as starter, Mr. D. S. Davies, of the "George Inn," was stakeholder, and Mr. E. Day of the "White Horse," Smarden was referee. Time 2-minutes 20 seconds.
