Australasian racing history was made today when a chestnut colt by Star Kingdom from Confection (a Confessor mare) was sold to a Sydney company director for 15,500 guineas at the Sydney yearling sales. The successful bidder was Mr. Ian Caldwell, who described himself as an investor, and said he lived at Bondi. The price paid for this yearling was more than double the previous record for a yearling sold in Australia or New Zealand. The previous record was 7100 guineas paid by Sir Frank Packer for the Pinza Method colt in 1958, and equalled last year when Randwlck trainer T. J. Smith bought the Star Kingdom sweet Adeline coit ior one of his patrons. In a tense duel for ownership of the yearling, Randwlck trainer Maurice McCarten, acting on behalf of Roman Catholic Scarborough Convent, Brisbane, went to 15,000 gns. for the yearling before dropping out. Monslgnor Prawley, of Scarborough Convent, was McCarten's "backing" for the yearling. For some years now, Scarborough Convent has offered a yearling as first prize in an art union which has provided the finance for building extensions. Mr. Caldwell, himself, presented quite a colorful figure at the sales. A short, bespectacled man with a long cigar, he said he went to the sales determined to buy the colt, and would have gone to 20,000 gns. if the bidding had taken him that far. Mr. Caldwell said the colt would be raced In Sydney, and trained by C. Ryan. Mr. Caldwell said tonight he had already named the colt Columbia Star. His only previous yearling purchase was a Le Grand Due colt in 1943, which cost him 500 gns. It was named Gonzales Likely to Forfeit Title By Don Lawrence Australian Ken Rosewall will win the current world professional tennis championship on a forfeit if, as seems certain, titleholder Pancho Gonzales does not take part in the Australian tour, starting this week. Rosewall at present Is In second position behind Gonzales on matches won and lost. Gonzales has stated In Europe that he will not come to Australia, but will retire from tennis and return to America. The Kramer troupe Is scheduled to play 10 world series matches, plus the world Indoor title, during Its stay in Australia. Former Wimbledon champion, Alex Olmedo, and Pancho Segura are due in Melbourne tomorrow. Gonzales Is due on Thursday with Tony Tra-bert. Gonzales' announcement has caused a first-class "flap" in the Kramer camp, which has already billed him to appear at Kooyong on Saturday night in a world series match against Ken Rosewall. Kramer's Australian manager (Mr. Bob Barnes) said in Sydney yesterday Gonzales was proving a "big headache." "Gonzales' contract with us does not expire until the end of the year, so we will certainly take legal action against him if he does not come to Australia," Mr. Barnes said. Doesn't Like Us One theory put forward to explain Gonzales' refusal to come here Is that he does not like playing in front of Australian crowds.

Mr. Caldwell renewed his acquaintance with Rvan. after a break of more than 10 years, when some weeks ago he visited Rvan in hos. pltal and told him to buy and train him the best Star Kingdom yearling available. High Opening The colt was bred by Mr, W. Moses at Fairways stud, Muswellbrook (N.S.W.). Bidding opened at 5000 guineas, which came as a big surprise to many of Australia's recognised bloodstock experts, and went up 1000 guineas at a time until the price reached 0000 guineas. When the bidding reached 10,000 guineas Mr. Caldwell and McCarten had the battle to themselves, with bids going up by 500 guineas. McCarten, with Monslgnor Frawley beside him, went to 15.000 guineas, and left the final bid to Mr. Caldwell at 15.500 guineas. Mr. Caldwell then went to the auctioneer's office and handed over a cheque for 16,000. which included Insurance premium of 635. After the deal on the yearling had been closed, the sale ring buzzed with discussion on the colt's potential. His dam confection was b Confessor, sire of Victoria Derby winner, Advocate.

Writ By Ajox Queensland bookmaker Tom Marncy has withdrawn his High Court writ against the Victoria Racine; Club. The writ challenged the validity of the V.Hc.'s action in banning Marney from Flemington racecourse under the club's by-law 37, because of alleged matters arising from the run of Cambridge in the 1956 Australian Cup. Also banned under the same by-law was Jockey Athol Mulley, who has since been reinstated by the V.R.C. The V.R.C. placed the ban on Marney and Mulley on oepiemoer o, moo. Later the two men took out a High Court writ challenging the validity of the V.R.C. action, and naming the club's chairman, Sir Chester Manifold, as nominal defendant. Reinstated Mulley withdrew his writ some time ago, and on February 12 this year the V.R.C. reinstated him. At that stage Marney said he was going ahead with his action against the V.R.C. Yesterday the acting secretary of the V.R.C. Mr. R. S. Kennedy, said the club had been notified that Marney had withdrawn his ac tion.

Rlor- GUINEAS Barnes Takes Lacing from Ralph Dupas SYDNEY, Monday. British Empire welterweight champion, George Barnes (10.61), lost any chance to be considered in the world welter division when he was whipped by New Orleans (U.S.) fighter, Ralph Dupas (10.5D, at Sydney Stadium tonight. Dupas, a 21 on favorite, did not lose a round when he proved a swifter puncher, harder hitter and one of the best welterweights to visit Australia in the past 15 years. A crowd of about 12,000 saw the fight. Barnes took some heavy punishment around the head and body in the last round and had no answer to the elusive Dupas. Barnes finished with a cut above his left brow, sustained in the third round. The American was having his 100th fight, while Barnes went In for his 63rd bout since 1948. Barnes gave away height and reach and almost 10 years in age to the American 7th ranked welterweight in the world. dan might prefer to engage a mure experienced JocKey who would not have to declare so much dead weight. tiyiana won on aranover at uauineid two weeks ago Mac was scratched from the Sandown Cup yesterday, and will run in the Hampton Handicap, over 12 fur- miigs. on Saturday.

The American punched better from a range. v Fast Lefts Barnes opened the second round with a right that swung down hard to the side of Dupas' head, and momentarily the pair stood toe to toe swapping body punches. Dupas then stepped back and started a series of combination punches which had Barnes in trouble. In the third round, it even looked as though Dupas carried the heavier punch, as he ripped into Barnes' body and crashed home a right to the head. Dupas landed punches from almost every angle and late in the third round had Barnes missing badly as Dupas dodged around the ring waiting an opportunity. Barnes tore Into Dupas from the opening of the fourth round and the nalr stood toe to toe swapping punches. Dupas. the boxer, had become the aggressor and was not prepared to give an inch. Early in the fifth round, Dupas punished the Empire champion with a quick bbdy attack, followed by a rifht cross, but Barnes took the blows and came back into the fight. Weaving Dupas gave a display of elusiveness at the opening of the sixth round. When pinned in the corner by Barnes he weaved, ducked and slipped blows.

Horse Trainer Wins Appeal BENALLA, Monday. The appeal by Benalla trainer Jack Griffiths against two years' disqualification was upheld by the North-East- ern District Racing Associa tion toaay. Griffith!: was disaualifled by Wangaratta Turf Club stewards on March 24 for alleged Improper conduct and abusing N.E.D.R.A. steward, Mr. W. Betts, at the Wangaratta Cup meeting on March 14. After Mr. A. c. Callander, nresldent of the N.E.D.R.A.. announced the quashing of the disqualification and that Griffiths would be fined 50, Mr. Betts gave notice that he would appeal to tne v.K.u. on behalf of the stewards. New Ruckmen in Line for Opening A feature of the League final lists this year is the large number of talented big men recruits, and at least eight new followers may find their way into sides for the opening round at the week end. Essendon's Bob Dunlop, Hawthorn's John Winneke and Malcolm Hill, and Fitz-roy's Russell Crow have .been the most consistent of the completely new ruckmen tried in practice games and should make the grade. Geelong expects a lot from Pyramid Hill follower Des Byrne, and North Melbourne claims it has a future champion in big Derek Cowen. ' South Melbourne hopes to have Prank Johnson, former Association champion ruckman, In its team for Saturday, and Pootscray is likely to Include former Essendon and Seymour player Trevor Elliott. Other new big men In the running include Jim Knight (Essendon) and Barry Shep-pard (Melbourne). Indications are that about the same number of new men will be used in the opening round this year, as last, when 28 were tested. Geelong may have the most new players, possibly as many as six. while Carlton, Collingwood and Melbourne may have the least if any at all. The total of new players on senior lists is 119, with I Jr TWENTY - FOUR -YEAR OLD Rupan-yup farmer Bob Dun-lop, who has been signed up by Essendon, receives a help-. ing hand from his neice Catherine (Wi) to clean his footbali boots yesterday. Wade Not for Demons This Year Horsham full-forward Doug Wade, who has trained impressively with Melbourne this season has told officials of his country club he is not interested in transferring permanently before next year. Wade. 18. was Included on the Demons' final list as "to be added when available." He did not play in the final practice match on Saturday, after kicking five goals the previous week. A Horsham spokesman yesterday said Wade had told him he would not seek a clearance this year. "He may go to Melbourne a couple of times on permits, but does not want to make a permanent switch yet," he said. "However, he will be de finite League material in 1961." The official added Wade's family was not anxious for him to transfer to Mel bourne immediately. "The family thinks he would be wise to stay here ior anotner year," ne saia 25 more on supplementary lists. In addition, there are several players who have appeared on nermlts before with League clubs, and are trying again, as well as men like Barry Mclntyre (St. Kllda) and Percy Appleyard looutn iweiDoume? returning to their old clubs. Only a few players have gone from one League club anotner, including won Porta, Pootscray to South; Fred Munday, Geelong to Richmond, . and Graham Wilkinson, Melbourne to Richmond. Only Association player to make a list is Brian Trezlse (Sunshine), and he still hat to be cleared to Footscray, This means the V.F.A. bid to hold players hat been generally successful. Attempts were made to secure Jim Whlley (Brunswick), Denis Oakley (Sandrlngham), and Alan Byron (Coburg). Only six inter-State players have made the lists. Youngest new players are 16-year-olds. Ron Oar-ruthers (Collingwood), and Reg. Kent (Pootscray). BRUCE WELCH. S.A. Fighting Fund by Businessmen for Dons' Backman ADELAIDE, Monday. A group of Adelaide businessmen have agreed to set up a fund of 10,000 "to teach the Essendon Football Club it cannot use with impunity the threat of a refused clearance to prevent a young man improving his prospects in life." The businessmen are perturbed "by published statements attributed to Essendon Football Club officials which attempt to control the life of former player Bob Shearman." Shearman has been the centre of dispute since he came to Adelaide early this year to settle and go into an electrical business at Elizabeth, a town north of Adelaide. Shearman is living in the West Torrens district and has been training with that club. He has played in three of the club's preseason practice games, but has been refused a clearance by Essendon. Shearman was a member of i&ieondon's 1059 grand final team. is known the president of West Torrens (Mr. O. J. O'Grady) has given Essendon a statutory declaration, sworn by himself, showing that Shearman came to Adelaide over a business proposition which led to his decision to live here. It is understood the businessmen behind the 10,000 fund are satisfied that football had nothing to do with Shearman's decision. Consequently, it Is said, Surprise Move in Johnson Case By Bruce Welch South Melbourne's fight for the services of former Association champion follower Frank Johnson took a surprise tum last night. After weeks of haggling. Port Melbourne last night cleared Johnson to South, but South Warrnambool, the club Johnson coached in 1958-59, shocked by deferring his application for a clearance from there. When Johnson first decided to resume his football career in Melbourne, Port wanted to hang on to him but South Warrnambool refused to clear him back to the yJ?A. club. On March 13, the president of South Warrnatmbool (Mr. Edgar Lewis), was quoted as saying his club would clear Johnson anywhere but to Port Melbourne. . . Now the tables are turned, and South Warrnambool, which has already secured John Svenson from South Melbourne to succeed Johnson as playing-coach, seems ready to haggle. Its committee held a special meeting last night to consider Johnson's clearance application. Later, Mr. Lewis said he had been authorised to ne- New Date for Bracken Bout Australian light-weight champion George Bracken may be ready to defend his title against Johnny Butterworth on Friday, May 6. The bout, scheduled for last Friday, was postponed when Bracken became ill during the week. It was feared he had ton-sllltis, but examination by a throat specialist, has shown his complaint is not so serious. He is to have treatment and another examination this week, when it will be known II the date ior tne fight can be fixed. Main Fight Festival Hall will reopen ior Doxing on jmaay wees, April 22.

Schilling is to fight either Brian Sheehan in Sydney or Johnny Tapp in Brisbane, and Douglas may meet Gary wnumu in jansoane, . VICTORIA RACING CLUB ANZAG DAY RACE MEETING ENTRIES CLOSE TODAY Essendon's refusal to clear him is an intrusion on the liberty of an individual to live the life of his choice. Not Decided An Adelaide businessman, who claims he has no club affiliation, said tonight that the way the fund would be used had not been decided. "But a little imagination suggests several ways In which Essendon could be embarrassed immediately." he added. "For instance, how much money would be needed to be spent to induce two or three young Essendon stars, such as Sampson and Epls, to come here forthwith and sweat it out for a clearance 1 "Would 5000 each attract them ?" he asked. , Contacted in Melbourne, Esendon club secretary Mr. Cookson said: "We had a letter from Mr. O'Grady regarding Shearman before Christmas after which the club decided gotlate with South when he came to Melbourne on business tomorrow. "We discussed the clearance for 40 minutes, and it has been left in mv hands." he said. "The committee has given me instructions to discuss certain things with South Melbourne. "I will ring South tomor row and arrange to see them on Wednesday night.". Firm Stand South officials will, take a firm stand in their bid for Johnson. If South Warrnambool wants compensation for the loss of Johnson, South Melbourne could appeal to the Hampden League against the country club's refusal to release him. If this happened, however, it could prevent Johnson being cleared in time to play in the first round on Saturday. Fraser Down to Emerson NEW YORK, April 11. Roy Emerson again upset Neale Fraser yesterday, 6-3, 6-, 6-2, in the final of the men's singles In the Caribbean tennis championships at Montego Bay, Jamaica. It was Emerson's second straight-sets victory over Fraser within a week.

"We then received a formal application from West Torrens for a clearance, and that was refused in accordance with the earlier decision. "We had had nothing direct from Shearman, and he had never discussed a clearance with the club. "Since then we have had a request from Shearman to appear in person to discuss the position. We were pleased to comply and set the date as April 19," Mr. Cook-son said. "Blatant" Mr. Cookson told "The Age" last night that the latest move over Shearman was "blatant use of the pound." "It is said that Shearman's move was caused by a business proposition, but what would happen if Essendon elected to clear him to some club other than West Torrens ?" Mr. Cookson Shearman told "The Age" from Adelaide last night that the businessmen's move was "news to me." "But, I repeat, I am determined to stay here. My business is doing well, my family is here and I'm moving into my home within a fortnight. "I'll come to Melbourne next Tuesday to see the Essendon committee but, even if they turn me down again, I'll not go back. I will stand out for 12 months and appeal to the A.N.F.O." Anzac Day Match Plans A decision whether two League second-round games should be played on Anzac day will be made at a special meeting of the League tomorrow night. The games are Fitzroy v.
