1905-02-21 Johnstone CHING Governor Nathan results

1905-02-21, the first day of the Annual Race Meeting, Governor Nathan’s colours (Red, blue sleeves and cap) was left in documentation.
The Governor arrived shortly before the bell announced the start of the first race and remained on the ground throughout the entire day.

His own stable being entered, he naturally took a keen interest in the racing.
His only pony, CHING, which, with Mr Mackie riding, was third in the Valley Stakes.
That is according to page 60 of《Pow Mah》written by Henry Ching:
“Sir Matthew Nathan, Governor in 1904-7, had in 1905 one pony, named CHING, which, with Mr Mackie riding, was third in the Valley Stakes.

But according to 《Hong Kong Daily Press》, in that Valley Stakes, CHING was ridden by Johnstone, not Mackie.
Instead, Mackie, riding SPIRTLE, was unplaced.
